Hispanic professional society & diversity job fairs at NSHP.org

In an article posted on The News Gazette, Esther Cepeda discusses the heterogeneity of the Hispanic Population in the US. She delves on the politics of immigration, and how some Hispanics do not abide the idea that every illegal immigrant should be awarded citizenship. She argues this is their right, and doing so is part of the Hispanic identity. She states, "Their [Hispanics] strength lies in their diversity, and they're better off being a messy reality than a mythical monolith."

What caught my attention was a quote attributed to New Mexico Attorney General Gary King, who is running for governor. He paraphrased Dolores Huerta, co-founder of the United Farm Workers, as follows. "She [Huerta] said you can't go out there and just vote for somebody for governor because they have a Latino surname, she said you have to look at them and find out if they have a Latino heart."

What exactly does a Latino (and/or Hispanic) heart mean? Does it always side with Latinos (and/or Hispanics) in polarized arguments? Perhaps a Latino (and/or Hispanic) heart stands up for specific values like family, community, kindness, etc.

What do you think?
