Viviana Hurtado on NPR's Tell Me More with Michel Martin

The Wise Latina Club's Viviana Hurtado on NPR's Tell Me More with Michel Martin on Trayvon Martin

Are only white people racistas? Do blacks “own” a form of racism: reverse racism? Is it “ironic” (lamest use of this word I read in the blogosphere) that George Zimmerman, the self-appointed, unauthorized-by-the-subdivision, one-man-neighborhood-watch vigilante who shot and killed 17  Read More...
