Coined words, Slang words, Caló, Cholo, English, Black Vernacular, French, Japanese, Chinese, German. Wearing clothes of various cut, crafted by chafed and worn hands we often never hold. Practicing traditions handed down by our ancestors, different ancestors, from different places. Eating foods from all ends of the Earth.

    Every day I worry about America. My country is so divided, thanks to the far right wing Tea Party Republicans. They are absolutely Un American!Why? Because the rich 1% has figured out a way to brainwash the racist, extreme far right Tea Party.When you think about it, it's mind boggling. A vast majority of those on the far right are poor, senior citizens. They are on Social Security and Medicare or Welfare. They are country people with limited educational background beyond high school.  However, the 1% extremists have brainwashed them to vote against their own self interests -- Social…

    Holy Easter cake in the shape of The Lamb.I never know what to do with Easter, so I think this year I will finally do absolutely nothing and feel fine about it. I was raised Catholic, but always found this holiday disappointing and sad compared to my favorite, Christmas. December 25th had sparkling lights, rich colors and a story of the Christ child being discovered by night. Easter felt pale and washed out with its pastels, Holy Week solemnity and quick sugar rush in bright sunlight. Half-hearted Easter Sunday festivities would be followed by Sunday night movies about the life of Christ.

Antonio Banderas shouts fluently to the grape pickers, “¡en las uvas si se puede!” and switches to English, “join us, they don’t pay you enough!”  Lots of sky shots, close ups of a burning sun, sweaty faces, a wrinkled grandmother, a teenage schoolgirl, bunches of green grapes.

    FROM MY VANTAGE POINT here on the outskirts of town, the world has quieted. I feel a bit of an escapee, after all. An escapee from the popular plot line. A fugitive from the prescribed Proper. An exile of a once glimmering arc. Does it validate us morally, as Americans, when we succeed in the ways prescribed by every droning voice that narrates American culture between the lines; when we have two bank accounts, three credit cards and 10K in savings? Doesn’t it justify our every quirk when we drive it around in a well working car, wrapped in a smart wardrobe, on top of a gleaming credit…

    The DEA is not dealing drugs in your neighborhood! Silly. That would be like Colonel Sanders working behind the counter of KFC, handing out change and greasy chicken wrapped in wax paper. No, like the CEOs of KFC, the DEA outsources the labor. In the case of the DEA, to one of the largest cartels in Mexico. The Sinoloa Cartel, to be specific. In the 12 year alliance with one of Mexico’s largest drug cartels, we have to ask ‘how much drugs has the DEA helped import into the USA?’   But let’s back up a moment. It’s important to keep your eye on the horizon.

While not presented as sensationalism (it’s no secret that people in the U.S. have always had a tremendous appetite for chemically-enhanced means of altering their moods), the story is misleading in a number of ways.  Patrick Timmons of the Mexican Journalism Translation Project said much what I would write about this, and does so much more succinctly than I would: I find Miroff’s article…

    I'm continuing to go through the process of unplugging emotionally from my ex-husband and his dog and focusing on me. Like many women, I really centered myself on my marriage and how I could improve myself and our relationship. Unsurprisingly, I wanted to talk about things more than my husband did. Unable to communicate with him, I focused on me, but felt stymied when my meditation, talk therapy, support groups and self-help books didn't result in the marriage getting better. People now tell me that what it comes down to is that just one person can't improve a marriage; it takes both people.

The answer is “yes.” In the second half of the twentieth-century, Mexico’s most prestigious creative writing center, Mexico City’s Centro Mexicano de Escritores, gave writers year-long grants to devote themselves exclusively to writing. Senior authors taught technique and supervised workshops based on the model of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. Beginning in the late 1950s the CME began to receive funding from the Farfield Foundation, a CIA front, for its publications. Later, more money that was likely from…

Betita, like Dolores Huerta and many of our Chicana elders, truly gave herself to her cause. I learned that Betita gave up a comfortable middle class life, that the government often targeted her for being a socialist, and that she faced rejection by the very people she struggled with. And yet she managed to write constantly. Betita…

Latinidad can be broadly defined as a political and cultural sense of peoplehood created and maintained primarily by people of Latin American descent in the United States. This Latino/a identity does not exist in such form in Latin America, where national identities are the primary means of identification. In the United States, “Latino/a” has been both referred to as an ethnic or cultural group, and…

    On Monday night, only two of seven elected board trustees showed up for the monthly meeting, thus forcing the meeting to be canceled. Trustee Felix Hernandez was notably unavailable as he remained in jail after his arrest last week on charges that he was caught carrying 1,254 pounds of marijuana in a semitrailer.Board President Olga Oviedo and Trustee Raul Martinez Sr. were the only ones who attended Monday. Given the past history of this board, we’ll speculate that the no-shows didn’t want to take up the controversial topic of what to do about Hernandez’s arrest and the employment…

    How do these guys get away with this?Off the battlefield, the American military has a complicated relationship with guns.For decades, soldiers and their families have been able to purchase guns for personal use in retail stores on some bases. Even today, some “base exchanges” sell guns. Soldiers and their families can fire personal firearms at target ranges, participate in competitions and in gun clubs – all located on the nation’s military bases. But a federal directive won't allow them to carry concealed weapons on bases, even though it's legal in the rest of Texas. Ted Cruz wants…
