[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.

Gustavo Arellano, autor de “Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America” expresó: “[Es risible] que se suponga que los blancos no deben—escojan el término—robar o apropiarse o ‘inspirarse’ en la comida mexicana, que la comida mexicana sea una tradición sacrosanta en la que sólo pueden participar los mexicanos y las muchachas blancas con las que nos casamos.

Imaginen lo siguiente: los acompañamientos de un taco en un cono de tortilla. Un cono de tortilla de  harina de trigo, además. 

Ese producto les llega como cortesía de un video nuevo de la Food Network, titulado “Los conos de taco son los nuevos tacos”, en que una joven mujer asiático-americana demuestra cómo “comer dos tacos al mismo tiempo”, usando tortillas y convirtiéndolas en un cono de helado, que rellena con carne picada y otros acompañamientos.

[OP-ED]: Helping kids handle the ‘Trump Effect’ in our nation’s schools

 01/24/2017 - 14:13

In North Carolina, a high school teacher said she has “Latino students who carry their birth certificates and Social Security cards to school because they are afraid they will be deported.”
 

A new study by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil rights advocacy organization, says that more than two-thirds of 2,000 teachers surveyed reported students -- mainly immigrants, children of immigrants and Muslims -- expressing concerns or fears about what might happen to them or their families during a Trump presidency.

Since the election, more than half of teachers have seen an increase in uncivil political discourse in their schools or classrooms, and more than one-third report having observed an increase in anti-Muslim or anti-immigrant sentiment.

Lies Deserve No Sympathy

CHICAGO -- In retelling last week's revelation that Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas is an illegal immigrant, civil rights metaphors have been trotted out to describe the plight of a talented young man who got caught up in an immigration mess but, through his shocking confession, has become to some people a new American hero.

Comercializando alcohol a las mujeres

Comercializando alcohol a las mujeres

Quizás
conozcan a Eva Longoria como Gabrielle Solís, de "Esposas Desesperadas", pero
aunque nunca he visto su programa de televisión, la considero como un
importante ejemplo para las mujeres. No es una "superestrella latina",
simplemente una actriz corriente de televisión, que se ha convertido en
distinguida celebridad, modelo, patrocinadora de productos y filántropa,
cautivando a gente de todas las edades con su belleza y fabulosa vida. Longoria
es un ejemplo de riqueza y belleza que las jóvenes de todas las razas y etnias
envidian y desean emular.
