According to a new Pew Research Study released yesterday, only 9% of Latinos surveyed are ‘angry’ with President Obama for his decision to delay action on immigration until after the election. Although the Latino community is understandably disappointed with the decision, the survey also found that Latino voter preferences will not hinge on a singular decision by the president. While support for Democrats among Latinos has declined, it is important to note that 50% of Latinos still believe Democrats have “more concern for Latinos.” This is a particularly telling figured when compared to the … [Read More...]

Guest Blogger: Roberto Adrian Fierro “Latino Culture Rooted in Food Day Values”

Growing up in Mexico, food was a very important part of my life and upbringing. Food brought family together. In el campo, bonds were formed and culture shared, y en la cocina lessons were learned and recipes passed down to younger generations. I vividly remember helping my grandmother pick fresh peppers for her famous chorizo con papas; just as I'll never forget how she would have me bury the extract from her vegetable juicing directly in the soil. As if growing up in a food-friendly household wasn't enough, the streets and alleys of Mexico offered some of the most delicious yet affordable … [Read More...]

Guest Blogger: Alfredo Estrada “Here We Go Again”

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...]

Comentarios From Maria: Latinas -Spotting the signs early, is only half the battle to breast cancer survival

There is no real way to describe the overwhelming and emotional reaction one can feel when faced with the possibility of cancer.   Even the word cancer itself, can stir a mix of concern and fear among the strongest willed persons. My mom had it. But thanks to God, early detection, and our supportive … [Read More...]
