This chapter discusses the genocidal potential of everyday symbolic violence. It studies a situation where difference has been essentialized, but has not yet led to genocide. It argues that although Latinos are victimized by forms of symbolic and physical violence analogous to those that occur in genocide, there are certain constraints that have prevented such violence from rising into genocide.

Keywords:   genocidal potential, symbolic violence, Latinos, physical violence
