Oh, Ted you scamp.
Last night at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Texas Senator Ted Cruz trolled nominee Donald Trump and the rest of the Republican party during his speech. Not only did he not endorse Trump for president, as many of his Republican colleagues and former opponents have done, but seemed to be openly advocating that people....

What's so hard about making a Latina Disney Princess?
A few years ago people became excited at the prospect that Princess Sophia the First would be the first real Latina Disney Princess. But it was all a misunderstanding. At best she was Spanish and not Latina and she wasn’t even that. She was princess of some made up land. But now, for real, the....

Orozco is my favorite.
Today we’re dropping some culture on yo’ face. It is Frida Kahlo’s 109th birthday week, and that made us think it was time we looked at some of our favorite Latino painters. When people think about art, particularly painting, they usually think about the European masters. Don’t get us wrong, those dudes were awesome. But....

Long overdue.
Late Tejano music legend Selena Quintanilla-Perez will be among the the 2017 honorees to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The famous sidewalk in Hollywood honors people in the entertainment industry who have made a lasting impact on their respective art forms. Selena definitely qualifies. I grew up in Texas and I....

I want that frijoles negros painting really bad.
I have to admit that I am a fan of Andy Warhol’s paintings. I know that they are just paintings of soup cans and prints in different colors of celebrities, but I think they are kind of cool. Of course, he reflected the pop culture world of his reality as a gay White dude living....

They are mostly Cubans? That's a surprise. <- sarcasm.
Recent polls show that Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump among Latinos by 62%. That’s no surprise seeing as Trump has made his entire campaign largely as a bigoted vendetta against Latinos, Mexicans in particular. He launched his quest for the presidency by declaring that Mexican immigrants are all rapists and murderers. He wants to build....

Don't get caught without your hat.
It’s summertime, and the sun is getting to be a bit of a bitch. The best way to avoid getting heat stroke or skin cancer is to try and keep to the shade. But what if no shade is available? Thankfully, thousands of years ago paleolithic man used his technological skills to invent the hat.....

it's the end of an era
After a run that will surely go down in Broadway history, Lin-Manuel Miranda did his final performance of Hamilton Saturday night. He wrote and starred in the multiple Tony Award winning hip-hop musical about founding father Alexander Hamilton during its year and a half on Broadway. Miranda finished off the night by cutting off his....

It's about time.
I’m Cuban-American which means that I grew up drinking plutonium level espresso shots of Cuban coffee. When I was a little kid and we would visit Miami, my grandfather would stop a few times a day to pick up a shot of the good stuff for a dollar from the many kiosks around town. During....

I want some Jarritos right now
Summer is here, and so is the heat. Nothing can cool you down on a hot day better than a nice refreshing beverage. You’d like to have a margarita, but it’s frowned upon at work or during your morning commute. Luckily, we Latinos have plenty of delicious soda options. You could drink an American soft....

Why did they even pretend otherwise?
In what comes as absolutely no surprise to anyone, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hit musical Hamilton swept the Tony awards on Sunday. The hip-hop musical about founding father Alexander Hamilton won 11 out of 13 Tonys. Given that there were categories in which multiple cast members were nominated there was no way they could have won all....

Lin-Manuel Miranda's hit is hitting the big screen.
Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda’s first breakthrough work In The Heights is finally being adapted into a movie. The film will be produced by the Weinstein company. In The Heights won several Tony awards and was a finalist for the Pulitzer prize. It tells the story of several characters living in the northern Manhattan neighborhood of....
