"Going Beyond Story" recognizes Hispanic Heritage Month along with the rest of the country. In this episode, Doc TG, talks with Santiago Melli-Huber, Media Manager, of the Hispanic Heritage Foundation, about its upcoming celebration, its programs, and the power of voting.
Teen hosts Yanira and Suzy commemorate Hispanic Heritage Month by discussing what their Hispanic heritage means to them, stereotypes and misconceptions about the Latino population, and what our society can do to encourage today's Latino youth to make a difference in their communities.
Leaders of La Coordinadora 2014 (The National Coordinating Committee for Fair and Humane Immigration Reform) claim that the Latino electorate is divided due to the Democratic Party's desperate gamble to protect control of the Senate, and pressured Obama’s delay of his promised “executive action on immigrants by the end of summer”.
In a controversial declaration published on September 23, 2014 by the National Institute for Latino Policy, they declare on behalf of La Coordinadora 2014, that:
“Dolores Huerta is only the latest to try and pull Obama's chestnuts out of the fire with her recent quote from a VOXXI.com interview (http://voxxi.com/2014/09/24/latino-leaders-wrong-obama-immigration/ ]http://voxxi.com/2014/09/24/latino-leaders-wrong-obama-immigration/), "We have to look at the big picture and don't get caught up in saying we want it now." "...we are a community that can wait." And, "we have to have faith in our president..." How ironic that she expresses no anger at the 70,000 to 100,000 more deportations Obama's delay will provoke. Multi-millionaire Henry Cisneros, former Secretary of HUD under President Clinton, has repeatedly railed against immigrant advocates for demanding of the president "not one more deportation." Disgraced and separated vice president of the Service Employees International Union, Eliseo Medina, has probably been the most protective of Obama at every turn. And, Cecilia Muñoz, Director of Domestic Policy Council, and Assistant to President Obama, has been the White House's pit-bull in silencing critics of the deportation machine.”

What does it mean to be post-racial? Does the election of President Obama prove that we as a country have moved beyond race? Is it our job as minorities to educate white people about our culture? Should black nationalist groups be considered hate groups alongside white nationalist groups? Is racism really over?
