Hispanics and a Texas Renaissance

In my Hispanic Vision I see the Hispanic community contributing to the economy and culture of Texas as leaders, not as cheap labor. Texas can have a renaissance and Hispanics can contribute to it. Click on this link to learn more about the Texas Renaissance.

Hispanics must avoid being racists

The Sunday June 3, 2007 Dalla Morning News published an opinion piece by Linda Chavez. The article was: Here's what immigration debate is really about: fear of "the other"

It was a poorly done opinion piece. It was racist. It stooped to ad hominem arguments. It is a textbook example of bad reasoning, a paradigm of poor thinking, and an excellent example of the lack of leadership in the Hispanic community.

All America is suffering from a leadership crisis, so it is to be expected that the Hispanic community shares the fate of the nation.

The Hispanic community needs a positive vision for itself and the entire Hispanic world. There is nothing positive in racism. The Hispanic community and those who think of themselves as leaders in the Hispanic community need to put aside racism and think about a positive future.
