    Former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has announced he plans to seek California’s highest office in 2018, after months of speculation. “I’m running for governor to do big things — starting with rebuilding our middle class by investing in our schools and repairing our infrastructure,” said a statement on Villaraigosa’s new campaign website antonioforcalifornia.com. “We’re never going to make this state work for us again unless we give voice to the people who are all too often not heard in Sacramento.”

    While polls show that more Hispanics prefer Hillary over Trump to occupy the White House those Hispanics need to take a close look at what Hillary’s party has done for -- and more importantly, to -- Hispanics in the U.S. The Hispanic population has grown so rapidly that it is difficult to believe that the 1970 Census questionnaire did not include a racial or ethnic category called “Hispanic.” But this was not because Hispanics did not live in the U.S. in significant numbers. The musical West Side Story from the 1950s featured several Puerto Rican main characters, and cities like...

    As a Hispanic woman, I am OUTRAGED that the news media reported that the killer, a Muslim Turk (Arcan Cetin) was branded a Hispanic, Latino, and even insofar as a "gang member" when, all along, he was "shouting" something (according to witnesses), which, according to Pam Geller, "we all know what that is". When are Hispanic groups going to be outraged about this? When are CNN, MSNBC and the Enemedia going to apologize for Hispanics? This is a new low in journalism and in fairly reporting the "news".

    New York Post ^ | 8/14/2016 | Kathianne Boniello
    New York’s Hispanic voters may have a secret soft spot for Donald Trump. A new poll pegs support for Trump at 40 percent among Latino registered voters in the Empire State. The results would be a major break from recent electoral history. Barack Obama took 89 percent of that demographic in his 2012 victory. And, in a sign of continued electoral turmoil, 20 percent of registered Democrats plan to vote for Trump — while 21 percent of registered Republicans say they will go for Hillary Clinton. Obama held on to 95 percent of New York’s Democrats in the last election....

On Thursday, the feds unsealed what is being called the one of “largest civil rights indictments in local history,” alleging that the gang members ruthlessly waged a race-fueled campaign against innocent African American families—all with young children—to get them off their prized turf.

When Hannity asked if she was accusing Clinton of racism, she acknowledged she was and even went further to call Bill Clinton a racist. I am absolutely suggesting she’s racist,” she said. “And I talk...

    ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – Hispanic voters in Florida, New Mexico and California have waved Mexican flags and bashed Donald Trump pińatas — clashing with police, at times — to protest the Republican presidential contender's hard line approach to immigration. Yet far from the protests, an increasingly vocal Hispanic minority is speaking out in favor of the brash billionaire. They are backing Trump even in the face of resentment and suspicion from friends and family, who are among the overwhelming majority of non-white voters opposed to the New York businessman's candidacy.

    Stockholm syndrome is a psychological phenomenon in which hostages express empathy toward their captors, sometimes to the point of defending and identifying with the captors. Let’s face it. To a large degree minorities, immigrants, gays and women are captives to liberal policy which provides no legitimate or strategic advantage to any of these groups of people. In fact, it harms them. It’s very troubling to watch black voters support Hillary Clinton, effectively handing her primary victories in states with large ethnic populations. Do these voters not realize that the very jobs and benefits they think she will bring their way...

Since he’s a lifelong left-winger, placing humans into the proper boxes is of the utmost importance, because it’s the only thing that informs his commentary. If he doesn’t know what they are, it’s impossible for him to formulate one of his ridiculous attacks. Specifically, he can’t figure out if Rubio and Cruz are “Hispanic.” He’s pretty sure they’re “Cuban Nationals,” but beyond that he has no idea which label he should apply, and that’s upsetting his identity...

A Millersville University student writing for LifeZette noted an exchange with her political science professor where the professor declared that Cruz “isn’t Hispanic enough.” The exchange occurred when the professor dismissed the Republican candidates as old, white men, and the student, Kaytee Moyer, listed five candidates who didn’t fit the mold.That wasn’t the first time Cruz has faced scrutiny for his ethnicity. His conservative views have made his authenticity suspicious in the eyes of some prominent (or formerly prominent) Hispanic politicians.It’s a strange quarrel, and a sign that even...

This tactic was invented by Democrats, so it’s only natural they would have an advantage. But history has shown that blind loyalty to a party is the road to ruin. As Hispanics gain political favor, the black vote is losing its shine. There was a time when Democrats pandered rhetorically to win the black vote to the tune of 90 percent. But...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Hispanic leaders are warning of harm to Republican White House hopes unless the party's presidential contenders do more to condemn Donald Trump, a businessman turned presidential candidate who's refusing to apologize for calling Mexican immigrants rapists and drug dealers. Trump's comments, delivered in his announcement speech last month, have haunted the GOP for much of the last two weeks and dominated Spanish-language media. It's bad timing for a Republican Party that has invested significantly in Hispanic outreach in recent years, given the surging influence of the minority vote. Yet several Republican candidates have avoided the issue altogether,...

Because “diversity” and “segregation” are two different things, when you look at them from a city-wide level and then the neighborhood level, writes Nate Silver, the founder and editor of the Five Thirty Eight blog. “Chicago deserves its reputation as a segregated city,” Silver writes. “But it is also an extremely diverse city.

    With the announcement of Ted Cruz's candidacy for the GOP presidential nomination and his speech at the convocation of the ultra-conservative Liberty University, the country finds itself jilted to the right on the ideological spectrum. Ted Cruz is quite the curious ideological torchbearer precisely because he is Latino. The general assumption in politics is that growing Hispanic Latino participation in politics will only mean an ideological shift to the left. This makes Ted Cruz' candidacy a welcome reminder that Latino candidates won't, for good or bad, necessarily stray from traditional American politics any time soon. The son of Cuban immigrants...

    AMERICA is a country built by immigration, but nothing in its history compares to the rise in its Hispanic population. Changes to immigration law in the 1960s triggered a decades-long surge in arrivals, taking the Hispanic population from just 7m in 1970 to 57m today, a number that is set to double by mid-century. At that point one in four Americans will be of Latino descent. In relation to the population of the day, there have been proportionally larger surges in the past, notably involving European migrations in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Two factors make the rise of...
