On Sirius XM’s P.O.T.U.S Radio: No Latino Vote

The Wise Latina Club's Viviana Hurtado on Sirius XM's P.O.T.U.S Politics Radio on Puerto Rico Primary, Election 2012, The Latino Vote

¿Que quééé? Yup, heard me right.  There is no Latino vote. Think about it.  More than 50 million Hispanics call America home and although we’re concentrated in Florida, California, Texas, and New York, we’re actually everywhere. Even in the “unlikeliest” places. Consider @rydelacruz, a Dominican-American living and riding horses in MONTANA who tweeted me, “OMG […]

In Latina Magazine: Election 2012: Mitt Romney’s Latino Problem?

TWLC's Viviana Hurtado in Fox News Latino on Mitt Romney: First Gringo-Latino President?

“¡Psst!  Los republicanos don’t like Latinos, ¿no?” “Pues you’re wrong.  I’m conservadora.  It’s just the candidates want to be Presidente and they’re trying to get there by making the Tea Party happy.” The tiki tiki on the streets since the debates started is that the Republican party doesn’t like Latinos.  Now of course that’s silly.  Plenty of Hispanics are card-carrying […]

The Wise Latina Club's Viviana Hurtado Writes an Op-Ed in Fox News Latino: Rick Santorum: Faith and Razón

Dumb and Dumber. Nah…I’m not singlin’ ‘out a part. candidate.  + during primary silly season, combined with our 24/7 media culture, you take what presidential nominee hopefuls say as seriously as a Kim Kardashian wedding. Thing is, Latino educational underachievement is nothing to ha-ha-ha about.  Rick Santorum’s comments poo-pooing colleges for being “indoctrination mills” sends […]

More Habla: TWLC’s Viviana Hurtado on Univision’s “Punto y Seguido”

TWLC's Viviana Hurtado on Univision's Al Punto with Jorge Ramos on Election 2012

In case you suspect I have A LOT to say, especially about things I’m passionate about like política, you’re rrriiggghhhtttt! Especially when it concerns Latinos. You see, everyone–pols, marketers, corporations–is going a little loco with the 2010 U.S. Census data. Basically, our population growth is akin to a Rebecca Black YouTube video going viral. And along […]
