Latino 'supremacists'?

Racism gets a whitewash - by Michelle Malkin



Few things make liberals more uncomfortable than being confronted with the racism of politically correct minorities.



Two weeks ago, I wrote about Autum Ashante, the precocious 7-year-old black nationalist poet, who said white people are "devils and they should be gone."

Asleep at the Wheel

I can almost assure you that everyone who is a true American was sickened when viewing protesters carrying Mexican flags in opposition to the immigration Reform Bill under consideration by the Senate. This display of Mexican flags should give us a heads up concerning where the allegiance of these protesters lie. Their bellies may be in the United States, but their hearts are in Mexico.



As an American of Mexican Heritage, I was incensed; and therefore, I want to set the record… Continue

The Value of an Immigrant Latino Population

Dear Colleagues,



Although many of us who studied American History learned how the United States was built on the backs of immigrant labor, it seems to me that some legislators have selectively chosen to ignore this historical fact, as well as the enormous benefits derived from immigrants today, both economically and politically in the state of Georgia.



According to Patrick Osio, Jr, (HispanicVista.com), “Nativists argued that immigrants depressed the wages of "artisans and… Continue

How Do I Teach My Child to Be Bilingual?

By Eugene O'Reilly



There are two definitions of bilingual. One means an ability to communicate equally in two languages. Another definition is that it is the ability to communicate in two languages with the possibility of greater skills in one language.



There are different theories on the best way to teach a child to use two languages. Most researchers agree that a child who was exposed to languages at an early age, and simultaneously, will naturally learn to use both… Continue
