The American understanding of Mexican food has undergone a change since the 1960's. From the Americanized frozen TV dinner and fast food to the current growing trend in local, sustainable Baja-Med cuisine. Just like there are regional differences in American BBQ, or cuisine in various regions of Italy or China, there are differences in the various regions of Mexico. In today's show, I'll be talking about some of those differences.

Tonight The Gist of Freedom dedicates this show to Mexican Warrior Gaspar Yanga!
The first town of freed African slaves in the Americas is not exactly where you would expect to find it — and it isn't exactly what you'd expect to find either. First, it's not in the United States. Yanga, on Mexico's Gulf Coast, Known as the Primer Libertador de America or “first liberator of the Americas,” is a sleepy pueblito founded by its namesake, Gaspar Yanga.
Yanga an enslaved African who taking the role of spiritual and military leader, led a rebellion against his Spanish colonial slavers in the late 16th century and fought off attempts to retake the settlement.
Gaspar Yanga led one of colonial Mexico’s first successful slave uprisings and would go on to establish one of the Americas earliest free black settlements. Gaspar structured the agricultural community in an ordered capacity, allowing its growth and occupation of various locations.

So that’s what the magazine is about – Latina success stories, reflections about life, plus a bunch of other stuff that will inform, entertain, inspire, or just plain crack you up!

If you can't banish people outright, then you can try to erase them from students' minds. That's exactly what happened in Tucson Unified School District in Arizona, when conservatives ipassed an anti-immigrant racial profiling law, SB1070 that in effect targeted Latinos. At the same time, right-wing activists succeeded in passing a law banning the teeaching of Mexican American Studies, saying that a highly successful TUSD program that taught Chicano/Latiino history and culture to all students in the largely Hispanic district was instead harmful and divisive. The law, HB 2281, bans instruction that encourages "ethnic solidarity" among other things. Mind you, to begin with the ethnic studies courses were part of a federal court order to address historic and systemic racism in Arizona's education system.
The outrage over free speech rights of teachers and students is what prompted writer and teacher Tony Diaz to "smuggle" books by Latino authors out of his home state of Texas and into Arizona. He has been reporting on and organizing the efforts of free speech activists, ethnic studies activists, and students and teachers fighting for a relevant curriculum ever since.
TUSD high school student Maya Arce is a plaintiff who filed in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to overtun this Arizona law on grounds that it's unconstitutional. On January 12, 2015, she will testify and urge the Ninth Circuit to protect her First Amendment rights and the rights of other Arizona students and overturn this ignorant, bigoted, and narrow-minded law.
Background, go here.

California Assemblyman Tim Donnaly joins Joe to discuss the Mexican President's tea party with Govenor Moon Beam. Gov Brown thinks its OK for him to breal bread with El Presidente while our marine rots in his prison.
Andrea Nelson, from the Clover Agency, joins Joe to discuss recent news events that you probably won't hear anywhere else. Tune in, you'll be surprised at some of the weird news stories and what passes for news nowadays!
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
