Description

En las elecciones del 2004, hubo 3 millones más votantes hispanos que en el año 2000. Los hispanos pusieron al presidente George W. Bush en la Casa Blanca en el 2000 y luego lo reeligieron en el 2004. Es imposible ignorar una influencia tan grande y un voto tan importante.

El cambio más dramático que está viviendo este país no tiene nada que ver con la guerra contra el terrorismo o con la economía; tiene que ver, simplemente, con la revolución demográfi ca impulsada por los latinos. Es la Ola Latina. En el 2002 los latinos se convirtieron, ofi cialmente, en el grupo minoritario más grande de Estados Unidos, superando los 38 millones de habitantes, cosa que no se esperaba que ocurriera hasta dentro de una década más. Para el año 2125 habrá más latinos que blancos (no hispanos) en Estados Unidos. Es decir, los hispanos pasarán de minoría a mayoría. Basándose en entrevistas con los más reconocidos expertos en temas latinos y con hispanos que viven a lo largo y ancho de los Estados Unidos, Ramos intenta descifrar lo que signifi ca este sorprendente cambio demográfi co para todos los norteamericanos, hispanos o no, tanto en su vida diaria como en su cultura.

Con el profesionalismo, precisión, y sensibilidad que lo caracteriza, Ramos nos muestra quienes son, exactamente, estos nuevos americanos, cuáles son sus intereses políticos y por qué es importante que el resto del país se preocupe por entender lo que es la "experiencia latina". Quien ignore el reto de los latinos, corre el riesgo de darle la espalda al futuro de Estados Unidos.

Publishers Weekly Review

May 31, 2004 – "The future of the Unites States is a Hispanic one," argues Univision news anchor Ramos (No Borders: A Journalist's Search for Home). He insists that Latinos' large and increasing numbers, Spanish-language mass media and rootedness in nearby mother countries will keep their ethnic identities from atrophying to kitsch and cuisine; they will integrate, but never assimilate. (But that's a claim that's hard to square with his observation that by the third generation, Latinos generally stop speaking Spanish and start intermarrying.) In a chapter titled "How to Woo Latinos: A Guide," Ramos argues that Latinos most often align with Democrats on labor issues, but with Republicans on social issues, and outlines how to move beyond the split. Less targeted are Ramos's vague and clichéd musings on the complexities and conflicts of Latino consciousness. He talks to various political and cultural leaders of the Latino community and is unabashed in attacking left-leaning populist Latin American politicians like Hugo Chávez. He draws attention to Latino casualty rates in Iraq that are disproportionate to representation in the ranks and to continued school segregation and workplace racism. Laying out the issues (immigration, most prominently) that he thinks will galvanize the Latino vote for the presidential election, Ramos offers his own "Ten Recommendations for a Latino Agenda," which are predictable but clear.
