SORT BY Relevancy
On today's show, I read several articles that have to do with the importance of the Latino vote and the way that politicos are attempting to address it and some commentary on that subject by Ruben Navarrette and my own commentary. Yes, there are GOP political types trying to reach out to Latinos by speaking Spanish here and there but it will require much more than a few words in Spanish to correct their histories of blatant anti-Latino agenda. However, I also think it is morally incorrect to utilize ethnicity as a political tool. For example, in the case of NM Governor Martinez was accused of "Not having a Latino Heart." That is blatant racism to equate ones ethnicity with a political movement. That is un-Christian and immoral. I also read a piece describing the absurdity of using the Constitution as the basis for support of radical secularism. Leon Pannetta, former CIA director, says he knew the Benghazi attack was an act of terrorism. Finally, I mention that soon the Bigelow inflatable module will soon be mounted on the ISS for testing. Good news for our space program. LatinoTalk Texas is America's only daily Independent Political Analysis from the Latino perspective.
We'll be speaking with Medgar Evers College Professor and author Dr. Byron Eugene Pryce about the notion of a "School to Prison Pipeline" as well as mass incarceration which is disproportionately effecting African-Americans and Latinos across the U.S.

In a recent speech at the Congresional Hispanic Caucus Insititute's gala, President Obama asked Latinos to "keep believing" (In immigration reform). Is the message resonating with U.S. Latino voters after six years? Join us as we discuss this with special guest, Blanca Hernandez, who attended the gala and was escorted from the even for asking Obama about his lack of administrative action on immigration. As always join the coversaton by dialing (347) 308-8633.
The biggest crime in the U.S. criminal justice system is that it is a race-based institution where African-Americans are directly targeted and punished in a much more aggressive way than white people.
Saying the US criminal system is racist may be politically controversial in some circles. But the facts are overwhelming. No real debate about that. Below I set out numerous examples of these facts.
The question is - are these facts the mistakes of an otherwise good system, or are they evidence that the racist criminal justice system is working exactly as intended? Is the US criminal justice system operated to marginalize and control millions of African Americans?
The police stop blacks and Latinos at rates that are much higher than whites. In New York City, where people of color make up about half of the population, 80% of the NYPD stops were of blacks and Latinos. When whites were stopped, only 8% were frisked. When blacks and Latinos are stopped 85% were frisked according to information provided by the NYPD. The same is true most other places as well. In a California study, the ACLU found blacks are three times more likely to be stopped than whites.
Coinsidence? Or is this just the way the system is set up?
Let's talk about it
If you've followed the shooting death of Michael Furgeson, and was waiting anxiously for and indictment to be handed down by the Grand Jury in this case, then you're amongst hundreds of thousands of people who are feeling angry and in disbelief.
For too long Blacks and Latinos have suffered unmeasurable acts of violence, harassment and even death at the hands of law enforement, and have been not received the justice of fair investigations or indictment of those accused.
With the a history of an unjust legal system, where do we go from here after this latest slap in the face? What do we do now?

HUGE SHOW, TODAY!! Daniel Garza with The LIBRE Initiative called the show along with David R Gonzalez and Elias Bemudez who are Immigration Reform Activists from Arizona. They, along with myself, are all Independent Latino Political Activists who seek better representation for Latinos in America.. We discussed the terrible situation for DREAMERS and those in their families who live in fear of arrest and deportation unnecessarily due to Obama's harsh policies and they demand relief. However, if Obama gives such relief it would eliminate any possibility that the Congress will act on CIR in any meaningful fashion. Daniel Garza seeks to address this and obtain real legal relief and address the great need for MORE immigration to America and not less. At the same time the DREAMERS are drowning and must have relief. But I warn and my callers agree that Obama is blame and will only act if he can do so for his own political benefit. Callers agree that the Democrats take the Latino vote for granted and the Republicans are bullies and that Latinos must have their own leaders. We lament that Jose' Jose Peñalosa for Arizona , another Independent Latino, was not elected in Arizona. My callers were; however, surprised, although Daniel Garza was fully aware, that the main source of the anti-immigration effort in America derives from the John Tanton Network of radical environmentalists from Planned Parenthood. They have major leaders and activists at the leadership of both major parties and thus, Latinos have not political party on their side. Great show today!! Tell your friends that LatinoTalk Latino Talk Texas is America's only daily political analysis from the independent Latino perspective.
Today's show includes many commentaries on current events. Mostly I settle the discussions and hyperbole concerning Obama's recent executive action on immigration. All that Obama has done is invoke his own prosecutorial discretion which he himself removed years ago resulting in 2 million deportations of parents that had minor American children and some that were veterans and others who had done nothing else wrong. He does not deserve applause but on the same token the Republicans are spewing nothing but hyperbole and propaganda. There is NO amnesty and Obama has done nothing illegal in this case. He's done almost nothing except lie about his actions in this matter. Later in the show I discuss my worries about the coming global economic recession and wonder why none of the major news sources are discussing it. All of Europe is in recession or worse and now, Germany, the manufacturing and economic powerhouse of Europe faces recession as well as England and France. Now, we get word that Japan is now in a "...sharp recession." We know that America's economy has been growing but has been very anemic in that growth and explain why and blame Obama and the Democrats for their many failings and warn that if since those major economic forces in the world begin to falter so too will America's weak economy. I warn Latinos to begin saving vigorously because Latinos will be the most affected in America. Lastly, I talk about Obama's withdrawal of American leadership in the world and how it has encouraged Russia and China. I read a news piece indicating that China is threatening its neighbors in the South China Sea and remind my listeners that I reported two weeks ago that Sec. John Kerry already advised the Chinese that the US would not take a position on such a matter which is also a withdrawal of American leadership.
in The Bible
But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries. Exodus 23:22
Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me. Psalms 138:7
When a man's ways please the YHWH, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him. Prov 16:7

Immigration reform is not about Blacks and Latinos. Immigration reform includes people from countries all over the world and it is about citizenship. Immigration reform is necessary not just because people have crossed into United States illegally or are here undocumented. Immigration reform is necessary because we are a country of immigrants. Immigration reform is necessary because without it employers will continue to exploit workingclass citizens and non-citizens. A pathway to citizenship is for the good of all America. Right now, our broken immigration system benefits only the 1% and those who are the puppets of the 1%. Black unemployment and citizenship for the illegal and the undocumented are not a rivalry issue about immigration. We all immigrated here except for Native Indians and stolen Africans. And every since Africans were freed from slavery, unemployment has been high for African Americans. Self-employment kept African Americans living. Self-employment became part of the black code law that put African Americans at the mercy of slave wages. So there is nothing new in 2014 about Black unemployment. Unemployment for Blacks has always been higher than unemployment for any other groups of Americans. Pre-President Obama, Blacks experienced first fired last hired. Had it not been for family/communitiy way of life over the decades, and creativity that has been handed from one generation to the the next, where would Black families be today?
Highest unemployment is the norm in Black communities and for Black Americans
Poor living conditions reflected in shelter and transportation means
Consumption of foods not for nutrition value but based on value of available funds
High imprisonment for lessor offenses
No protection under the law for hangings and rape at will
On today's episode, blogger Sacerdotus speaks on Our Lady of Divine Providence who is the patroness of Puerto Rico and the Barnabite order. Sacerdotus gives a brief history of today's feast day and its significance in the Christian way of life as well as the lives of Puerto Ricans.
