THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: BURUNDANGA BORICUA ON LA DEUDA ODIOSA, JOSÉ ANGEL GUTIÉRREZ ON EL MOVIMIENTO, PART THREE, JUAN TEJEDA ON CONJUNTO MUSIC AND TWO CARCAJADAS BY SERGIO HERNÁNDEZ.
What up my Peeps! Tia Tenopia bringing you another week of Latinopia! This week Jose M. Umpierrre returns with a profound blog analyzing a new plan for the future of Puerto Rico. Check this out: In the recently released book La Deuda Odiosa y Descolonización, author José Nicolas Miranda Fuentes proposes a national Assembly in Puerto Rico, that would also enlist Puerto Ricans of the diaspora, to once and for all address how to shape the Puerto Rican future. Is this a pipedream or does the idea really have legs? Check out this week’s Burundanga Boricua blog as José Umpierre reviews the book and its proposals in search of answers.
Also this week, we post the final installment on our three-part interview with José Angel Gutiérrez, founder of the La Raza Unida political party of the 1960s as he offers suggestions for “Dreamers” and other activists.
From San Antonio Texas, Juan Tejeda brings us an insightful look at the history and styles of Tejano music, in particular Conjunto Music. This is really cool and not to be missed.
And no week would be complete without a commentaryon the current Trump pendejadas as penned by master cartoonist Sergio Hernández. This week he looks at Trump’s proposed military parade and his cohort of “best people.”
