NAHJ National Board nominees

The National Association of Hispanic Journalists is now in the process of vetting the candidates who received enough signatures to qualify for a spot on the ballot for board elections. This is a list of candidates that I am aware of who are seeking seats on the board of directors of NAHJ, along with theirContinue reading “NAHJ National Board nominees”

Permission to protest ‘freely’

I had a dream that MLK gave a speech in 2020. But it wasn’t history’s MLK. It was MLK as reimagined by those who have attempted to usurp his legacy in the mistaken belief that they embody his objectives better than those who marched with him. You know the type. The speech went something likeContinue reading “Permission to protest ‘freely’”

Erasing history? Oh, please!

The ongoing unrest over how to address the problem of police use of excessive force in America has spilled over into other aspects of life, including the official use of “the” “Confederate” flag and monuments to the generals and other leaders of the Confederate States of America (which waged war on the USA). There areContinue reading “Erasing history? Oh, please!”

Signature of ‘Concerned Members of NAHJ’

Dear NAHJ members: I did not intend to blog about this letter this evening, but I feel I must because it was accidentally sent to many without signatures, making it appear this was supposed to be anonymous. It was not: The group behind the letter is the same group that was behind the petition driveContinue reading “Signature of ‘Concerned Members of NAHJ’”

Not all cops, but one is too many

My hands were in the air and I was walking backward, slowly. “Don’t shoot me,” I whispered under my breath. “Please don’t shoot me.” The police officers who pointed their rifles at my back couldn’t hear me. They were too far away. What if I, a brown man stepping out of a blue van, madeContinue reading “Not all cops, but one is too many”

NAHJ board makes strong case against postponing election

They may or may not have known it at the time, but the Board of Directors of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists only had to do one thing to make last Thursday’s virtual town hall a success. To say that they failed would be diplomatic. The performance was catastrophic and cringeworthy. [Click on theContinue reading “NAHJ board makes strong case against postponing election”

Covidiots beware: The social distance police are watching

Read the full story on SunSentinel.com. Careful, “covidiots.” You’re being watched, you’re being judged, and there’s a decent chance that somewhere on social media, you’re being shamed. Venturing out in public these days without a face mask or with a less-than-perfect sense of personal space has never been more likely to get you identified, labeledContinue reading “Covidiots beware: The social distance police are watching”

South Florida mayors don’t expect a long wait to reopen

Read the full story on SunSentinel.com Forget “back to normal” for now. It will be a while before South Florida can return to a time when anyone could go to a restaurant or a bar. Or visit a family member in a nursing home, or catch a movie or concert — not to mention attendContinue reading “South Florida mayors don’t expect a long wait to reopen”
