25 Life Lessons I Have Learned In My 25 Years Of Life

By Justin Johnson As I reflect on being alive the last 25 years, below are some of the life lessons I have learned. The lessons are short and straightforward with no explanation (I did this intentionally); however, I strongly believe that we are the author to our respective life story, so some of these lessons might not make sense to you now, but in due time will. 1) The grass isn't always greener on the other side of the fence. 2) Always be hustling for what you want. 3) Don't be afraid to ask for help; don't be afraid to ...

By Tanisha Ramirez Latinos make up 17% of the U.S. population. They account for 32% of frequent moviegoers. But as Flavorwire put it bluntly last year, Hollywood made the same number of films about Latinos as they did about monkeys in 2015.Hollywood's diversity problem is nothing new. (See #OscarsSoWhite: The Sequel.) According to Jessica Gonzalez, executive vice president of the National Hispanic Media Coalition, representation of Latinos in particular is lagging. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Yet More Republican Obfuscation on Guantánamo

By Jonathan M. Hansen In recent days, Republican politicians running for reelection have once again turned to stoking public fears about the President's plan to close the detention facility at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. Early last week, Illinois Senator Mark Kirk and New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayottte proposed legislation that would make it harder than it already is for the administration to reduce the current prison population. Meanwhile, the Republican presidential candidates are leading a chorus not only to keep the Guantánamo detention camp open, but to increase its population with terrorists captured in ongoing wars, as if Guantánamo has been ...

5 Tips to Help Your Kids Learn a Second Language Fast

By Charmaine Belonio Being bilingual has its benefits in this ever-changing and advancing world. So if you know some basics or you're fluent with another language, teaching this valuable skill to your kids as early as possible is a wise decision you can make as a parent today. Why?

A Pritzker for Chile

By Paula Escobar Chavarría The fact that for the first time a Chilean has won the Pritzker Prize, the "Nobel" of architecture, was great news for the whole country, who saw last Monday's ceremony at United nations headquarters with pride. It's because Alejandro Araven's achievement is so important and symbolic that he has validated not only his own work but also his way of looking at the world from here, from the "end of the world". Far from having that very common feeling of being tragically away from the big leagues, Aravena has triumphed from -- and maybe because of ...

The End of Overt Racism?

By Daniel Cubias If there is one thing that the candidacy of Donald Trump has taught us, it is to never count him -- or his followers -- out. The man emerged as a joke candidate last summer, who was supposed to have collapsed into his own hubris by August... or October... or Christmas at the latest... but certainly no later than spring 2016... right? Well, despite recent troubled times for his campaign, Trump is still the unquestioned frontrunner for the GOP nomination. Therefore, we must be skeptical of the latest analysis that "without an extraordinary reversal -- or the ...

From Ivana, More Trump Immigration Foolishness

In an interview with the New York Post on Sunday, Ivana Trump revealed that she has mended fences with Trump and that she is on board with his candidacy -- including his proposed immigration policies.

Arizona and North Carolina Election Day Debacles Make Case for Restoring the Voting Rights Act

By National Council of La Raza If you watched the news reports coming out of the primary contests in Arizona and North Carolina in March, you might think this election was taking place in a burgeoning democracy--a country that hasn't quite figured out how to guarantee the voting rights of its citizens on Election Day. Lines to vote snaked around corners of buildings in Arizona, while thousands were Just last week in Maricopa County, Arizonans attempting to vote were met with excessively long lines because the number of polling places was reduced by nearly 70 percent.

17 Women On The First Time They Were Catcalled

By Alanna Vagianos The first time I remember being catcalled I was 16 years old walking from the parking lot to my high school. The parking lot was only three blocks away, but it still gave the two grown men slowly following me in their car enough time to repeatedly ask me what grade I was in. Almost 10 years later, I still remember that day. I still remember what I was wearing. I still remember feeling every inch of my body burn hot with shame as I felt their eyes on me. This experience is all too common for ...

The Future of Bernie’s ‘Political Revolution’ in Brooklyn

By Nikolas Kozloff With a trio of wins at his back including Washington State, Alaska and Hawaii, insurgent candidate Bernie Sanders is now turning his sights on the Midwestern state of Wisconsin, where one recent poll places him five points ahead of challenger Hillary Clinton. If he can win the Wisconsin primary on April 5, which seems within the realm of possibility given the state's labor and progressive tradition, not to mention the long history of student activism at University of Wisconsin, Madison, then Bernie will have some wind in his sails as the electoral contest veers into delegate-rich eastern ...

Breaking Down the Walls of the Classroom

By Marisel Moreno Photo credit: Marisel Moreno We have a diversity problem in academia. This lack of diversity is reflected at all levels, ranging from the administration, to faculty, to the student body, and the curriculum. I know that changes have been taking place, but these are coming too slowly to keep pace with our increasingly diverse world. So, how do we tackle the root of this problem? There are probably as many answers to this question as there are academics out there. Some may propose the aggressive hiring of women, LGBT, ethnic, racial, and religious minority faculty. Others may ...

Treatment and Compassion, Not War

By Juan Cartagena It's easier to start a war than to end it. And harder still is admitting defeat. In the War on Drugs no one really wins. Even drug traffickers with all their riches kill each other off. For these reasons and more, the possibility of global drug reform represented by April's special United Nation's session on the topic symbolizes hope for many people. The session, known as UNGASS, was accelerated for this year after Mexico and other Latin American countries requested it after enduring decades of unstoppable and fatal consequences in their home countries. UNGASS can potentially reorient ...

Poet Breaks Down Why Brains And Beauty Are Not Mutually Exclusive

By Zeba Blay One poet has perfectly summed up the struggle of being an intelligent woman in a sexist world. In a spoken word piece posted by All Def Poetry on March 21, poet Angela Aguirre recalls a time when a male college counselor jokingly said he figured she was a "fashion" major, after she told him she wanted to major in rhetoric -- all because she was wearing a crop top and shorts. "He had no idea what he even meant. The intention of that comment was probably about somewhere between patriarchy and a pathetic attempt at trying to ...

Donald Trump Perfected The Art Of Making Immigration Policy Dumb

By Jason Cherkis WASHINGTON -- In American politics, few issues are as clouded by zany solutions as immigration reform. It might seem like Donald Trump came up with his proposal to build a giant wall along the U.S.-Mexican border on his own. But despite the wall being tremendously costly and impractical, and fraught with racist undertones, it's not exactly a new idea.The debate has been moving in Trump's direction for years. Unable to pass comprehensive immigration reform, President George W. Bush had to settle for a bill authorizing the construction of a 700-mile long border fence that cost billions, disturbed ...
