Re: Why older Latinos matter in election

EbonyRose ·
I thought this was kinda interesting!! It shows how we're getting (politically) smoked by the numbers as the now-#2 racial "minority" in America. Also the "racial and ethnic breakdown by state" link at the bottom gives a great accounting of the states where we DO have even slight political clout (mostly Southern states, of course!) ... and where we have little-to-none.

What is a Latino and an Hispanic? The Hatfield & McCoys of Europe have more names for human beings than they do their damn dogs. Syrians, Jews, Native Americans, etc., etc. All we are are our parents children. Don't you have a belly button? Whoops, there it is!!!!!!!

Re: Why older Latinos matter in election

What they are leaving out in this article is the fact that most older Latinos in America that are not recent immigrants, know the deal, and are not likely to be conned by republican false political rhetoric. Older Latinos in America know that the republican party is made up of primarily anti-minority anything, and that they are just as racist against Latinos/Hispanics/Mexicans as they are against Black people, and that their only objective in "reaching out" to Latinos is so that they can use...

In this day and age one can be whatever he chooses. If one appears more European: Hispanic; African: Latino, I suppose. Right now, Europeans are looking like the Face of Death to me. All the killing and hatred they harbor has transformed them into talking, living, breathing skeletons to me. I can barely stand to watch them anywhere, anymore. Scary, insane people. Before we're categorized, we're just human beings. Really, no different than birds or bugs; just trying to survive this journey of...

Re: Saving Government Jobs To Keep Playing Field Level

I understand Yemaya, but government jobs account for a large chuck of the African American jobs pool. So, the thing is, also, that we need to see the attack on "government jobs" as an attack on the African American jobs pool. Because when you factor in the age-old racial discrimination, the neo-Obama racial discrimination, the already higher than average unemployment rate into the equation of the attack on government jobs you are looking at the African American unemployment rate reaching...

And why Michael Eric Dyson was there is probably because he's an outspoken critic of racism in America, but, I think that our civil rights leaders and activists need to start thinking twice as to who they will speak for, at least until we hear apologies and denunciation of for/of all the racism toward Black people coming from the particular group(s).

Considering that the President broke records in his 2008 campaign for raising money over the Internet from small individual donations and through grassroots efforts from individual Americans and supporters .... and is on pace to collect as much if not more in this upcoming election ... I would say that he HAS changed the way election fundraising happens. No other candidate had - or has since - received the kind of individual donor, non-corporate tainted money support that the President has.

Dismissing ethnic studies classes is uncalled for. I don’t agree with it but I can understand how the people of AZ are tired and fed up with the total failure of the federal government to do something about the porous borders and illegal immigrants. Since the feds (who have the total jurisdiction and authority over immigration) refuse to deal with it, it’s up to the state to address the issue. Don’t hate the player, hate the game…..
