[OP-ED]: Take this taco and make it your own

 06/30/2017 - 11:32
Gustavo Arellano, author of “Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America.” said: “[It is laughable] that white people aren’t supposed to -- pick your word -- rip off or appropriate or get ‘inspired’ by Mexican food, that comida mexicana is a sacrosanct tradition only Mexicans and the white girls we marry can participate in.

Picture this: Taco fixins in a tortilla cone. A flour tortilla cone, no less. 

It comes to you courtesy of a new Food Network explainer video titled “Taco Cones are the New Tacos” in which a young Asian-American woman demonstrates how to “eat two tacos at the same time” by baking tortillas into an ice cream cone shape, filling them with ground beef and adding toppings.

Este primero de mayo se espera que cientos de miles de personas se manifiesten en la menos 44 ciudades del país. En Filadelfia, aunque con una historia larga en la lucha proinmigrante, no está claro aún si la jornada será una segunda versión del “Día sin Inmigrantes” o lo que otros han llamado el “Día sin mí”.

Carolina and her family fled from their native Tegucigalpa, the Honduran capital, because for over a year Barrio 18 members had demanded more and more protection money every week to "watch over your business."Their original destination had been the United States until Donald Trump's arrival in the White House temporarily put the brakes on that idea.

Requiem for 'El Diario'

 04/20/2016 - 09:23
El Diario has had a history of continuously publishing the daily news of the Spanish-speaking community in the capital of the world for the past 103 years.

News of the gradual death of the oldest Spanish-language daily newspaper in the country is something that, sadly, could be the beginning of the end of an era for Hispanic print media in the United States.

Just like it could happen to the rest of the Latino press in the US — which this newspaper has represented for over a 100 years — news of the gradual death of the oldest Spanish-language daily newspaper in the country is something that, sadly, could be the beginning of the end of an era for U.S. Hispanic media.
