If you ask me, it's only a matter of time before Latinas rule the world. At present, we're the fastest growing demographic in the United States and we're pretty much the driving force behind this country's purchasing power. Not to mention, many Latinas speak two of the top three most spoken languages in the world--a skill that will no doubt come in handy when we finally take over. But that's not all we bring to the table. Latinas--especially American Latinas--are primed to absolutely crush it in their personal and professional lives, thanks to these six uniquely Latina traits.
If you are a Latina in the U.S. there are certain things that will be said to you by non-Latinos and lets get specific here, mostly white people. You'll hear that you don't look like you are Mexican even though you told them you were Costa Rican. All kinds of stereotypical stuff will come out of mostly well-meaning people's mouths. I'm not going to get all up in arms about it, been there done that, let's just go on the assumption that most of the time they are said with no ill-intent and are more of a cultural faux pas than anything else. But still, ignorance is a pain in my nalgas sometimes.
I tend to deal with most things with humor and sometimes my humor can be a little offensive à la Sarah Silverman, but I think it is hilarious. For example, what if Latinas started to say the same kind of things to white people that white people say to Latinas? Are you ready for this?

I'm so excited to tell you about a Tennessee toddler who saved the life of an elderly man trapped inside of a hot car. Last Saturday, 68-year-old Bob King was sitting in a car waiting for his wife to come back from Vestal Baptist Church in Knoxville in 90 degree weather when something went wrong with the automatic locks on the doors and he got locked in. He didn't have a key, so he couldn't even lower a window or turn on the air conditioning. The temperature inside the car quickly reached over 120 degrees. King tried desperately to get out of the car, but he couldn't. Then, thank goodness, King caught sight of his 3-year-old savior, Keith Williams, walking by.
You are not going to believe how well this little boy responded. It's not an exaggeration to call him a hero and to say that he saved King's life.
Sometimes it takes a serious health scare to get someone to make changes to their diet. For one Mexican American woman from Texas, it took a gallbladder attack and an emergency hospital visit to motivate her to finally lose some weight. She went from 282 pounds to 173 and you absolutely HAVE to see her now!Continue Reading >
A 2-year-old boy from Cleveland probably wouldn't be alive today if it wasn't for police officer Ismael Quintana who rescued him from drowning in his aunt's backyard. Luckily, he was rescued on time but you have to hear the story to believe it. And guess what? It's all on camera!

Estoy hablando de esos pequeños ataques que te hacen amigas, algunas veces hasta sin querer, pero que poco a poco nos van intoxicando con dudas o sentimientos negativos. Estoy segura de que cuando leas a lo que me refiero vas a poder identificar a una o más personas en tu entorno que hacen estas cosas. Quizá seas tú misma una de ellas. ¡En serio, no te dejes!

How would you deal with it if your son wanted to wear a dress out in public? I mean out and about to parties and hikes and just about anywhere? Well, you, I and everyone should deal with it the way that Seth Menachem deals with it.
