              Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky is giving people whiplash. In the last month, he has shifted, flip-flopped and pandered so strikingly on a range of positions and statements that it makes you wonder whether he has suddenly developed a deep disregard for his own convictions, or never had any to begin with. At the Urban League's National Convention in Cincinnati in July, Paul expressed support for the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act and talked about the necessity of protecting the rights of minorities. Kudos to … [Read More...]

We've seen this movie before. Many of us at LATINO Magazine worked at HISPANIC, launched in 1988 during the so-called "Decade of the Hispanic." It certainly wasn't, and no one would make the same claim of the naughty '90s and double-barreled '00s. But here we go again... Latinos (not Hispanics!) were the decisive factor in the last election, voting 71%  for President Obama and handing him victory in swing states like Florida, Colorado and Nevada. Even an adversary as staunch as Fox News CEO Roger Ailes declared that "the contributions made by Latinos are extraordinary." It appeared that we … [Read More...]
