Latinos and HIV/AIDS
Just FYI...

Though Hispanics comprise about 14 percent of the U.S. population, they represented 22 percent of new HIV and AIDS diagnoses tallied by federal officials in 2006.

Hispanics make up 22% of new HIV, AIDS cases

When was the last time you were tested for HIV?

NPR Battle for Hispanic Vote
Crossposted in latinos4obama

Notice how the anti-immigrant stories have been on the slow in the news lately? Must be election time. Time to pander and have the mariachis ready for those whistlestop tours of the the cities of L.A., San Antonio, Chicago, etc.

Of course while pandering to the Mexican-Americans they'll lump everyone else in. Anyway, NPR just put out a show on how we're a hot political property because of our population growth.

Personally, the only power I want is to be able to run Tom Tancredo out on a rail after we tar and feather him.

Anyway, here's the link to the show.


While this is a story that pertains to all of us who are voters Democrat, Republican , and third party I invite anyone who is interested to join the latinos4obama community.

Media, Latinos and Hillary Clinton.
Sorry for the political talk, but this topic seems very relevant considering the news as reported by the mainstream media. Mainly, I'm actually very curious on the way our vote is being taken for granted by the Hillary Clinton camp in these last few primaries and why we're supposedly some monolothic group supporting her over Barack Obama among those of us who are registered Democrat?
Please someone enlighten me, just what has Hillary done on issues that concern us as a group? I want to know how she has truly reached out to latinos on issues that concerned us? If Bill Clinton was supposed to be the first "black" preisdent, what has Hillary Clinton done more than Barack Obama to become our first "brown" president?
Are we really that slanted towards Hillary Clinton over Obama based on something she actually did for us? Because if it's so I'm out of the loop, or is the Clinton camp trying to bank onthe tired old cliche of latinos and blacks in the US having so much tension that they wouldn't vote for each other? If that's the case, this won't be the first time the Clinton camp has played the race card and they should be ashamed of themselves.
A little note. To my memory the only time Hillary Clinton name was mentioned in an issue involving latinos was when she opposed Bill's pardon of the 11 Puerto Rican nationalists of the FALN, who were serving long sentences despite the fact that NONE of them so much as killed anyone or destroyed property and did in fact, renounce violence. She went against the calls for clemency by the Cardinal of New York, the arch-bishop of Puerto Rico, 10 Nobel Peace Prize winners and Jimmy Carter.

queer en español
queer en español


espero que todxs están bien por donde andan.

si estas recibiendo este mensaje es por que creo que quizás estas interesadx en este pequeño proyecto.

yo vivo en bogotá moviendo me en muchos espacios con personas que tienen un interés en lo que sea queer pero hay una falta de literatura y información sobre el tema.

estoy tratando de hacer un fanzine que es una recompila de artículos, experiencias, propuestas, reflexiones, historias, poemas y arte en español (no mas de dos paginas) de personas queer o trans en america latina o inmigrantes (o hijxs de inmigrantes) de america latina en el exterior. la idea es crear algo de literatura que sea sencillo e informativo pero no académico para distribuir a personas en colombia y en otras regiones si hay interés.

espero que el fanzine no sea muy largo (20-25 paginas) para que no sea muy costoso para reproducir. se reciben obras para el fanzine hasta el 15 de octubre 2007. la idea es tener el fanzine listo para un encuentro local que va pasar en bogotá en noviembre de este año.

mmm, no se que mas se me ocurre mencionar. pero si hay interés, preguntas, comentarios, criticas constructivas, lo que sea. dale! espero que hay algito de interés. gracias.

Please help me!

Hi, I am a college student and I am interested in learning more about Mexican culture from the perspectives of Mexicans who live in Mexico and Mexicans who live here in the states. I lived in Morelia, Mexico this summer and I have talked to many people there. Now that I am back, I would like to learn more about Chicano identity vs. Mexican identity, language barriers, immigration issues, discrimination, racism, etc. (I hope this is allowed in this community!) I was hoping that some of you would be able to answer some of my questions.

Did you know about this?
No really, I am. A hug, horrible event occurred in LA this weekend and I was blissfully unaware of the entire thing.

Demonstrators for immigrants rights were at a rally in Macarthur park when the LA police went in and began firing rubber bullets and tear gas into crowds of men, women and children, knocking down people left and right and attacking news reporters.

What is this country coming to? Is this what our country's idea of immigration reform is? Beat up those who speak up and demonstrate for the rights of the people? Of the worker?

I don't know how I never heard of this and I don't remember seeing it on the blogs of any of my friends but do me a favor and pass it on. We all need to see this and recognize that something is very wrong in this country.

This Cinco de Mayo, if you absolutely insist on dressing "Mexican"  when partying.  Dress like this.

Please, please don't do this.

Nervous Wreck.

I know this is really bad to do, but I am desperate. You guys will be seriously turned off, but I have an oral presentation in Spanish class and am extremely self-conscious because everyone in that class seems so good at Spanish while I seem to be the underdog. All my classmates say that they are just going to just wing it and they seem to be able to think on the spot easily. I decided to write out what I am going to say because the last time I did a presentation in that class, I froze and stuttered and got a 48%. I'm hoping writing it out would prepare me more. Could you me by reviewing what I have writtened? I included what I was trying to say in English right below it. 

You don't even have to look over it all. You can even look over like, a couple sentences and tell me what's wrong with it.  Or look over a couple of sentences and affirm that it is correctly written. Really, I would really appreciate that. I understand how annoying it can be when people ask for homework help on communities. Thank you for reading this. = ) (I know this seems like a lot to ask because you guys are probably super busy and all, but if you could do this ASAP, that would be the best since I really need as much practice as possible.)

Moderators, feel free to delete this post if it goes against a rule! =)

Eutanasia Si o No ?

Anoche, mi esposa y yo estábamos sentados en la sala hablando de las muchas cosas de la vida. Estábamos hablando de la idea de vivir o morir. Le dije: 'Nunca me dejes vivir en estado vegetativo, dependiendo de máquinas y líquidos de una botella, si me ves en ese estado, desenchufa los artefactos que me mantienen vivo, prefiero morir' Entonces.. ella se levantó con una cara de admiración... y la cabrona desenchufó el televisor, la computadora, el ipod y me botó la cerveza. Qué hijueputa... casi me muero !!!

Today is the anniversary of the death of Lance Corporal Jose Gutierrez.  He was the first combat casualty  in Iraq. Jose Gutierrez was a young man of 22. Father to his younger siblings. Loved the United States and dreamt of the things he would do in this country after serving in the Corps.  A true patriot through and through.

Oh yeah, I forgot. He  came here from Guatemala *ILLEGALLY*

I dedicate this to Charlie Daniels, Tom Tancredo, Arnold Schwarzenegger and the Minutemen who , as their type claim, won their right to  their opinions from the spilled blood of the men and women in uniform like  Jose Gutierrez.
