About the Book

A Chicano in the White House is the first book to tell the unknown story of President Richard M. Nixon and the Chicanos. Nixon found us. He made us known and famous. Only Nixon or I could have written this book. He and I are the only ones who knew what visions we discussed and planned in the Oval Office. It is a disclosure of how his visionary actions brought an unknown, forgotten, and conquered raza into mainstream America. I present details of the first "exodus" through the 1920s of almost two million rural and illiterate, landless peasants from a feudal society to the Midwest and Southwest of the United States, where they established "little Mexico's" called barrios. The Mexican Revolution of 1910 turned ugly after 1913 when the leaders of the Marxist Union named International Workers of the World, (I.W.W.) of Baltimore, Maryland, imposed a quasi-Stalinist regime and proceeded to persecute and attempt to eliminate the Catholic Church in Mexico. The atrocities against Catholics caused frightened flight on empty boxcars to "El Norte."
About the Author: Dr. Henry M. Ramirez came from California to work in Washington DC. He now lives with his beautiful wife of 58 years in a small rural Maryland village where the deer roam undisciplined thru his ranchito. His favorite occupation now is writing, advising, and gardening. His favorite occupations are now landscaping and cultivating tomatoes, chiles, cilantro, onions, etc. for his well known Mexican Salsa. His children, now grandparents, and his grandchildren and their friends find his salsa with a cool one and chips to be an excellent and satisfying "bienvenido." Trouble is that the deer also are addicted to the ingredients of his salsa inclusive of tender chiles. In his formative years 1935-1943 Henry listened to the refugees of the atrocities of the Mexican Revolution 1913-1930 at Sacred Heart Church in Pomona, California. These former illiterate and landless peasants, then enjoying the fruits of the land of the free, recalled with frequent repetitions the stories of life under the revolution and echoed the names of the revolutionaries they had heard. His BA in Philosophy revealed sectarian ideologues of Europe as the cause of the Mexican Diaspora of the young Mexican families who started the barrios. In the Pomona Valley, he grew up in a Mexican Catholic barrio. In Washington DC, he worked in a European Protestant world that knew nothing about the two million Mexican refugees who had settled down in the Southwest and elsewhere.
