A new initiative in Southern California aims to unite Southern California's Muslim and Latino communities during the month of Ramadan. The charity campaign- which brings together both communities to enjoy tacos after fastening all day - is a response to the election of President Trump, which has left both America's Muslim and Latino communities feeling besieged, the organizers explain.

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

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.

 05/18/2017 - 08:20
You don’t need to be a political scientist to figure out a few simple truths: In raw numbers, more and more Hispanics will cast ballots in upcoming elections -- as has been the case for the past 36 years.
English

At the outset of their new book, “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign,” Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes note that adviser David Plouffe prioritized three goals for Clinton to win: “It was important to have the right culture and mission, to manage Bill Clinton, and to effectively target Latino voters.”
