Will Latino Empowerment be fully realized in 2016?
As we embark on this new year we reflect on the tragedies that beset the progressive community . We were treated to the increasingly unvarnished form of American racism to those familiar with the U.S tortured history of lynching slavery, colonization and conquest. Republican candidate Donald Trump wants to close this nation to people based on religion. In the past we had "no blacks allowed," " no Mexicans allowed" we now have "No Muslims allowed." Only months earlier this hate monger had called for mass deportation squads of immigrants and referred to Mexicans as "rapists and criminals." We must recommit ourselves to
the spirit of resistance and call for social justice that led to many of our successes in the past. No mas racism and let the struggle for freedom reign.
