THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: ALVARO HUERTA ON TRUMP MAKING AMERICA UNGREAT, JOSÉ UMPIERRE ON “INSPIRATION” IN PUERTO RICO, RICARDO ROMO ON WHY CENTRAL AMERICANS COME TO THE U.S. AND QUETZAL ON “MIGRA.”
As Trump’s impeachment gathers steam and Trump continues to malign Mexicans and Central Americans and advocate for his wall, Latinopia looks at two aspects of the debate. Dr. Alvaro Huerta weighs in on how Trump hateful actions have set America back fifty years in terms of social and racial equality. In effect, Trump is making America Ungreat again. And Dr. Ricardo Romo recounts his visit to Honduras and the insights he gleamed on the factors propelling immigrants to travel North.
From Puerto Rico, El Zocotroco analyzes the aftermath of this summer’s nationwide ouster of Governor Roselló and how different factions are now trying to shape a future for the island. But El Zocotroco wonders if it’s the same political players try out the same ineffectual approaches of the past, just how successful they can really be? Another thoughtful call for Boricuas to wake up and smell the platanos quemandose.
And we repost a performance by the Eastside group Quetzal as they look at “Migra.”
Enjoy your week on Latinopia!
