Racism isn't just a GOP problem

Racism isn't just a GOP problem

 (CNN) -- There are two groups of Republicans: Those who pander to nativists by encouraging anti-Latino prejudice and exploiting the fear and anxiety that come from changing demographics, and those who tolerate the first group. Both groups are spoiling the Grand Old Party. And they're making life too easy for Democrats, who -- while never particularly good at addressing the needs and concerns of Latino voters -- have lately excelled in the neglect department.

Hillary Clinton praises undocumented teen

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton came out strongly for the immigration reform legislation passed by the Senate last year after being asked about her stance by a young undocumented immigrant on Thursday. “I believe strongly we are missing a great opportunity by not welcoming people like you and 11 million others who have made contributions to our country into a legal status,” Clinton told a tearful 19-year-old student at a No Ceilings event with the...

Why has the ‘Cesar Chavez’ film failed?

Why has the ‘Cesar Chavez’ film failed?

While promoting his “Cesar Chavez” film two weeks before its opening last month, director Diego Luna received a rude awakening when he plowed into the streets of Austin, Texas, to ask Latinos passing by if they knew who the legendary farm labor leader was.
