The Champions, a Change: TWLC Goes to the White House

The Wise Latina Club's Viviana Hurtado Moderates Champions of Change White House Panel

On Monday, I was squaring my week which had already become demanding with three assignments from Fox News Latino and Latina Magazine where I am a regular politics contributor. Thursday would be a typical, hectic day since this is when I prepare to publish a weekly TWLC newsletter for my networks, in addition to my freelance assignments and writing […]

In Fox News Latino: Supreme Court Health Care Showdown: Conflicting Views Reflect Deep Partisan Divide

flag_outside_SC-TheWiseLatinaClub

I covered the day President Barack Obama signed the Affordable Care Act–as it is called–into law.  Just months in office, he had succeeded where political heavy weights had spectacularly failed, notably President Bill Clinton and the “Liberal Lion” of the Senate–the late Teddy Kennedy. Almost two years to the date, it is before the U.S. […]

Are Latinos Racist? TWLC’s Viviana Hurtado on NPR’s Tell Me More with Michel Martin Talks About Trayvon Martin’s Killing

I don’t even know where to begin […]

¿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 […]
