Your article on Bernie Sanders came as such a surprise to me -- that the same woman who has made it her life's mission to speak the truth and shed light on corruption, lies, and false narratives created by the corporate elite and special interest groups, would now suddenly create a narrative that distorts facts and misguides American voters.
I'm the first to say that it's impossible to identify us all by sight since we all come in different shades and styles, but that Latino vibe was missing - especially considering it was hosted in a city that has a vibrant Latino population, accounting for nearly 40 percent.
I recently received the following Twitter message, "why does it matter the race of the people protecting our desert? I am so tired of bias." The Tweet...
Rubio's exit signals the futility of trying to rebrand the Republican Party. At the same time, it demonstrates the success of the Southern Strategy and the conservative movement to label minorities as "dangerous others."
Although at the present time it's kind of hard to believe, there is a faction of the Republican Party which looks towards the future and sees some very problematic demographic shifts awaiting it.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio has blood on his hands and has been running amuck for far too long. It's high time we see him in striped uniforms wearing pink underwear underneath.
If you are Puerto Rican, you are probably paying close attention to the Democratic primaries. If you haven't, now it's very important that you do. Why? Because one of the candidates just released the most comprehensive and detailed plan on Puerto Rico so far in the race for the White House.
If we were to be honest, we would describe Mr. Trump as a reflection of ourselves; not only of those who agree with his statements, both openly and behind closed doors, but of the apathy of those in all parties who know better and refuse to speak up.

From a very young age, I mispronounced my name. This went on for years. That's why after I married my gringo, I hesitated taking his name. It wasn't because I didn't want to, but rather because I felt I needed to reclaim my maiden name. Hyphenating seemed more like a nuisance. So what was I to do?
If Trump becomes the Republican candidate for president, Latinos have the potential to stop him from entering the White House. But the possibility of this becoming a reality depends on the degree to which Latinos electorally mobilize and what Democrats have to offer them.
The degree to which the 2016 Democratic presidential primary has centered on race is historic. Not since 1964 when Lyndon Johnson ran on a platform of enacting the Civil Rights Act has racial equality figured so prominently as a campaign issue.
With more than 58 million Latinos in the U.S. -- 28 million of whom are eligible to vote in this year's presidential election, Latinos remain determined to counter such fear-mongering by cultivating a culture of civic engagement in this nation's public affairs.
