The great Lalo Guerrero can hardly sing for all the weeping as he performs There’s No Tortillas. And who can blame him?

You can make Mexican Crazy Bread yourself, whatever it is, just like in this “street food” recipe video, or stop by the Doha Marriott Hotel any Thursday for #DIYStreetFoodDoha. The hotel is located on Ras Abu Aboud Street, Building 2, Street 920, Zone 28, Doha. It’s unclear if the Marriott makes their Mexican bread with any leftover chicken, really. Crazy not included.

It’s OK to say the M word: Mexican.

Recent coverage of a new exhibit at a Texas museum — with headlines like “The Texas Rangers Killed Hundreds of Hispanic Americans During the Mexican Revolution(screen capture above) and “Texas Finally Acknowledges Rangers Killed Hundreds of Latinos,” — is not only historically incorrect but a dangerous attempt to sanitize history.

by Soy Capitan February 5, 2016 Cultura

Chilean-American rapper Dazer teams up with Erin Kim — a contestant on NBC’s The Voice — for a multicultural love song to a Queen. We especially dig Grindz on sousaphone, a marching band tuba that wraps around the body. And check out MacArthur Park in the background where they left that cake out in the […]

It’s amazing how much the poor Earthlings put up with before the Civil War that Caused The End of the World As We Know It. But thanks to our Galactic Overlords, we can continue to consume mass quantities of avocados from Mexico, and we feel fine.

In Mundo Latino, Kianna Gonzalez mashes up footage from Speedy Gonzales, “passionate” telenovelas, viral Internet videos, and sexy TV weather chicas. The resulting montage does not paint a pretty picture of how Latinos are portrayed in the media. Great little video, though!
