My response to Donald Trump

Posted by Ariadne Venegas on July 1, 2015 at 11:30am 0 Comments

I can't think in anyone worse than Donald Trump. I feel like we are going back to the 50's or 60's when segregation was everywhere in the US. I feel that with him in power we are going to be worst than other decades. Instead of looking for a solution that will benefit both countries he just wants us extinct, so he can live happily ever after.…

WE ARE NOT STEREOTYPES!

Posted by Latinitas Intern on July 5, 2015 at 3:45pm 0 Comments

Young Latinas speak out against Latino stereotypes! 

I am not a trophy, I am a human being. In today’s society, Latinas are seen as unintelligent, uneducated and insignificant because they are a minority, people feel that they are entitled to stereotype them based on what they’ve seen in the media. They generalize responsibilities are to cook, clean and give birth. What people fail to understand is that Latinas are worth more than their looks or their ability to satisfy the needs of…

Here's A Great Poem! Have A Great Week!

A while ago, a friend of mine recommended I read the works of Ana Castillo, a Mexican American writer and human rights activist who has been influential in the world of Chicano/a studies. I just recently did my research and have become so intrigued by what I've come across so far. I'm excited to read more by her!

Here is one of her poems that is brief but powerful:

Supreme Court Ruling and the Legalization of Same-Sex Marriage

Posted by Zaira Lujan on June 30, 2015 at 1:30am 0 Comments

        On June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage across the nation, making this a historic victory in the gay rights movement. Before this decision was made, 37 out of 50 states (and the District of Colombia) had already extended this right to same-sex couples over the course of the years. With Massachusetts becoming the first state in the United States to allow same-sex marriage in 2004, many…
