In Latina Magazine: What Super Tuesday Means for Latino Voters

mitt_romney-TheWiseLatinaClub

“Yo Decido” got many in a tizzy because Time Magazine with this particular Election 2012 cover focused on the importance of the Latino vote.  Except me. This cover got it wrong.  Firstly, the 2010 U.S Census clearly states that our community’s demographic boom is being led, not by Spanish-speaking immigrants.  In fact, this sub-group’s growth has slowed […]

TWLC's Viviana Hurtado on NPR's Tell Me More with Michel Martin on Rush Limbaugh, Latina's Anger, & Black Women's Body Image

I “gave up” swearing for Lent. Not that I’m a potty mouth. But when I’ve worked hours on a blog post just to see it ¡poof! I wish my first reaction was, ¡Blessed Virgen María of God! When it comes to watching your mouth, I suggest Rush Limbaugh follow my lead. This conservative radio shock jock–who didn’t […]

In Fox News Latino: Rick Santorum: Faith and Razón

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 […]

A spotlight, a very harsh one. And it’s shining on GOP Presidential nominee hopeful Rick Santorum. The Republican Party is likely hoping for a Mitt Romney […]

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 […]

Ring…Ring…Ring… “¿Allo?“ “Hola Viviana.  It’s Jorge Ramos calling.  I’m dying to share your incisive, ground-breaking, unique, and down-with-it perspectiva with my Al Punto viewers.  Wanna hang out and come on?” [insert:  ¡Thump!  Smelling salts to bring me back to life after hearing Ol' Blue Eyes on the phone] “¡Jorge!  Of course.  Have your people call my people to co-ord…” ¡K […]

I swear, it’s Idol for the Dweeb set–you know the ones who didn’t go to prom (ahem, unless Big Bro strong-armed his B-F-F–El Peruano–to go with you to the dance clad in cotton candy-my-dress-was-that-pink-and-grande). The Arizona Republican debate proved that although primary Republicans voters still won’t ask Mitt Romney to the prom–be their Presidential nominee, he’s a […]
