"...compelling evidence that his membership in the college student group 'MEChA', whose acronym in Spanish means, "Mexican Ku Klux Klan," is more than a youthful indiscretion. Bustamante, which in Spanish means, "He who breaks open the skull of the White Man," ..."

Talk is cheap 

Yeah, I said I would make the move off blogger to moveable type or gray matter. But, talk is cheap. Almost done...here is a preview.

Divided We Un-Stand 

The bigger we are the harder we fall..."Computer ownership and Internet use may actually be spreading less quickly among poorer households than among richer households," Article found via Negrophile.

East Coast Internet 

High speed internet access is nice when up to par. Today the ramifications of Hurricane Isabel has trinkled down to internet service-even for T1 lines. My line is now up and I must play catch up tonight and tomorrow.

The Move 

Ok, I had just enough of "Blogger," that I can take. Yesterday, I couldn't post for hours, and the day before that they were down as well. There were a couple of other small but, annoying instances of technical maladies. Soon (end of week to mid week), I will move this site to www.latinopundit.com, and put it on moveable type or graymatter.

A true blogger just needs more control.

Who are 'We?'

Thumbs up for keeping it real. NegroPlease

Taco Bell's Vote 

I think we can call this "commercial politics." What crap, when a business can reflect a vote!


It's a shame that one minority group shouts racial slurs to another. It throws all this "equality," talk right out the window.

Recall Decision Roils Presidential Race, Too 

Worries that California's recall may outshine possible Democratic presidential candidate's media spotlight. It may be interesting to see some of the antics that might arise for media attention.

Howard Dean 

Blog for America: DEAN: "America is a nation of immigrants. We are strongest when we honor and integrate those who have made their way to the United States to build a better life for themselves and their families. Hispanics have enriched our country economically, socially, artistically and publicly, and they strengthen our cultural foundation through their values of family, faith, hard work and community.
'I am proud to commemorate Hispanic Heritage Month, and as President, will ensure that the United States continues to provide the Hispanic community the opportunity to pursue the American dream."

American Latinos To Fight In War Against Latin American? 

It is no secret that the US, is busy recruiting American Latinos for it's armed forces. And in response to "the USA trying to set up military operations along the Guyana/Brazil/Venezuela/Clombia borders...under the guise of "the war on drugs." This article asks the question:
"Are the USA soldiers who are sent (or will be sent) to Colombia and other Latin American countries Latinos? Probably. Does this mean that USA soldiers who are Latinos are (or will be) killing off other Latino infidels, in Colombia, in Venezuela?"

I wonder if the 24% of the latino population who sees themselves as "American," and not Latino or Hispanic would feel they are killing their own people if engaged in such activites of war.

"Washington Hispanic, the premier Hispanic weekly newspaper in the D.C. metropolitan area, launched Latino Crossover, the first weekly English-language magazine within a Spanish newspaper on Friday Sept. 12. As the Hispanic population grows, so does the need to cross the language barrier."
Now there's a twist. More

A Reflection 

I wonder what a chicano would think about this:

"Spanish history is all around us. Spaniards were here in Florida first,' said Luis Alvarez, the principal of Alta Vista Elementary and president of Club Hispano de Lakeland. 'I think it is very good for young people who have been born here to remember something about their family's background, about their culture."

Wow. It came in a flash of understanding. The whole Hispanic vs., Latino debate. On one side you have the Hispanic culture and customs from Spain, not to mention language. On the other you have aboriginal culture and customs from Latin and Central America. To say one is Hispanic is identifying with Spain. And to say one is Latino is to identify with Latin America. There simple, which side you take not so simple.

But the more versed in this debate will go further than these two media hyped names and realize that Latino like Hispanic, still comes from Spain. And the word in the street are terms such as "chicano," and "boriqua."

No results for search string "Latino," at EverythingNY. I thought they said "everything."

Hey Busta! 

"Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante was expected to win the support of a prominent Latino group Sunday, but he failed to show up at its convention, leaving delegates frustrated and costing him the endorsement." The rabbit and the tea party immediately come to mind. More

Boxing fans, read here for Leguizamo's comments on his role for the HBO movie "Undefeated."

Liberal Bias or Op Page's Rear End? 

Being that the media exposes political figures, actors and actresses, and anyone else who holds the spotlight, the question this NY Daily News Op page asks is why isn't California's Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustanmante's ties to MEChA being questioned? He states: "The Los Angeles Times, ever willing to protect readers from the news, tip-toed around the story for two weeks, then ran an article Saturday, when almost nobody reads the paper." Ok, is he implying that nobody reads in LA? Or that the paper really sucks? (C'mon, I had to have fun with that one.)

Another blogger labels this as "Liberal Bias."

The Links
I don't know maybe these guys haven't read this, this, or this.

My original reservations toward blogging were its inherited Op page roots. After all, we all heard the expression that opinions are like asses-everyone has one! Although our commentaries are about truth however, it is our interpretation of that truth that makes our opinions. Aye...but, I digress.

Getting back to point, it is amazing of how ignorant we can be but, I have to call foul when a figure in the media can put his opinion, his commentary out there and not base it on fact but, on misinformation. End result is that other ignorants will read this Op page and say "hey, that is unfair...it was never covered...", when it is was. I have to cry: "misrepresentation!"
