"Here is the official statement from TBS: "TBS has reached the difficult decision not to order a third season of Lopez Tonight. Thursday will be the final episode of the show.

“The Yellow Brick Road,” the 2011 entry in TheaterWorks USA’s dependably diverting free summer series for young audiences, is a high-spirited mix of all these shows, particularly “The Wiz.” The director, Devanand Janki, has packed more than a dozen songs and several winning performances into this Latino-flavored riff on the L. Frank Baum classic at the Lucille Lortel Theater. No time to click heels in this 65-minute telling: these shoes are made for dancing."

Missed this when it came out, but worth reading. - LDP "When Fernando Meza is asked about his identity, “I tell them that I am Indian,” said Mr. Meza, a parade participant from the Tlaxcala tribe. “They say, ‘But you’re Mexican.’ And I say, ‘But I’m Indian.’ ”

Mr. Meza represents one of the changes to emerge from the 2010 census, which showed an explosion in respondents of Hispanic descent who also identified themselves as American Indians."

"Mamiverse wants to be for Latinas what Oprah Winfrey was for African-Americans: a pal, a spiritual adviser, and, more subtly, an image changer. In a period when American-born Latinas have been caught in the national freakout about “border security,” Mamiverse offers them a new spokeswoman. She’s a particular kind of Latina mom—an English-speaking, all-American gal. “The young, acculturated, affluent, online Latina is speaking English, and is imbibing media in English,” says Rene Alegria, the site’s 36-year-old founder and CEO.

Alegria wants Mom—benevolent and wise, skeptical and demanding—to lead the political conversation. “We’re rebranding our community,” he says."

"And perhaps inversely, the ancestry of the part-Latino pundits who were and are considered ‘White Dudes’ was not a factor in their ascending to such great heights because most people were unaware of their diverse family backgrounds. Perception trumps facts; if you are perceived as white, that can be beneficial. In the race game, the opposite of discrimination is often privilege, a concept that anti-racism activist Peggy McIntosh once defined in an essay:

As a white person, I realized I had been taught about racism as something which puts others at a disadvantage, but had been taught not to see one of its corollary aspects, white privilege, which puts me at an advantage…"

"That Times piece on Yglesias and his fellow, young pundits did receive plenty of criticism (and even its own parody!). But Yglesias is right: no one criticized the over-representation of Latin American-ancestry among the four subjects. The reporter behind the piece even commented on the 'white maleness' of the story."

"U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan said Saturday that he plans to recruit more African-American and Latino teachers in a bid to narrow achievement gaps among students.

"African-American males make up less than 2 percent of teachers nationwide, Duncan told CNN, while African-American and Latino males -- combined -- represent roughly 3.5 percent of all U.S. teachers.

"'That's not a number we can be proud of,' Duncan said."

"However, in the New Immigrant Survey used in this study, participants were not given the option of choosing "some other race."

As a result, in the New Immigrant Survey, more than three-quarters of respondents (79 percent) identified themselves as white, regardless of their skin color.

"This shows that Latino immigrants do recognize the advantages of a white racial identity. Most are attempting to push the boundaries of whiteness to include them, even if their skin color is darker," Frank said."

"Today, actor/comedian Cheech Marin ("Cheech & Chong" and "Lost") placed third in the "Jeopardy!" Million Dollar Celebrity Invitational Tournament, winning $100,000 for the Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) for this final round. [...]

Marin’s total "Jeopardy' wins of $150,000 will help fund students pursuing master’s and doctoral degrees in performing arts and entertainment. A longtime advocate of HSF and board member, Marin said, "This generous donation will have such an enormous impact on the American landscape. HSF empowers and educates so many worthy Latinos."

"Felipe Korzenny, Ph.D. is a leader in Hispanic marketing research and professor of advertising and integrated marketing communication at Florida State University. In his forthcoming, fourth-annual report on Hispanics and the Internet, Korzenny shared that 18.9 percent of English-preferring Latinos have a blog, compared to just 13.5 percent of non-Hispanic whites." Spanish-preferring Latinos trailed slightly behind the general market at 12 percent. The AOL report found an even greater 21 percent of Latinos bloggers.
