[OP-ED]: By all means, take issue with ‘The Bell Curve.’ But read it first

t’s a shame that the controversy regarding “The Bell Curve” centered on the book’s delineation of the differences in measured intelligence between blacks and whites
English

When “The Bell Curve” by Charles A. Murray and Richard Herrnstein was published in 1994, I was a junior in college and didn’t know anything about the book except that it had my white literature professors in an uproar. A few of them inveighed against the book’s premise -- the very notion of intelligence as something people possess in varying degrees -- and then the whole controversy eventually died out.

[OP-ED]: Por favor, disientan con ‘The Bell Curve’ si quieren. Pero primero léanlo.

Es una lástima que la controversia con respecto a “The Bell Curve” se centrara en la delineación del libro de las diferencias en inteligencia medida, entre negros y blancos.
Spanish

Cuando se publicó el libro de Charles A. Murray y Richard Herrnstein, ‘The Bell Curve’, en 1994, yo estaba en el segundo año de universidad y no sabía nada sobre él, excepto que causó el alboroto de mis profesores de literatura blancos. Algunos de ellos despotricaron contra la premisa del libro—la noción de la inteligencia como algo que el individuo posee en diversos grados—y después toda la controversia finalmente se apagó.

[OP-ED]: Anti-Latino rhetoric is building walls within our schools

 05/31/2017 - 11:12
Latino boys, “may already face social pressures that discourage self-regulatory behaviors in academic settings (e.g. peer pressure to appear to not care about school).”
English

It is said that your perception is your reality. This truth is more important to understand than ever since some of us are living in a time when reality is skewed by perceptions shaped by falsehoods from people in power.

[OP-ED]: La retórica anti-latina está elevando muros dentro de nuestras escuelas

 05/31/2017 - 11:04
Los niños latinos, según los autores, “podrían enfrentar ya presiones sociales que desalientan las conductas auto-regulatorias en entornos académicos (por ejemplo, presión de los pares para hacer parecer que la escuela no les importa).”
Spanish

Se dice que la percepción de uno es su realidad. Es más importante que nunca comprender esa verdad, puesto que algunos de nosotros vivimos en una época en que la realidad está distorsionada por percepciones que surgen de falsedades provenientes de individuos en el poder.

 I am not a big or even a little fan of President Donald Trump. Many of his policies strike me as undesirable, some in the extreme. His background and temperament have not prepared him for the presidency.

No soy un gran admirador, ni siquiera un pequeño admirador, del presidente Donald Trump. Muchas de sus políticas me parecen poco deseables, algunas, extremas. Sus antecedentes y su temperamento no lo prepararon para la presidencia.

[OP-ED]: No, America is not facing a race war

 05/25/2017 - 09:21
Whites are already seeing the descendants of some Asian and Latino immigrants as being similar to them. Consequently, whites treat them as white. This ‘whitening’ process will only increase in the future.”
English

For the past decade, the narrative of an upcoming Hispanic demographic tsunami has been alternately energizing and scaring people into believing that America will eventually become Latinized beyond recognition. 

Don’t worry, it isn’t going to happen.
