We frequently mention that Mexican Americans are discriminated on many levels of American social structure, including institutional level. More than 11% of the population of the USA are Mexican Americans. But if we look at the Government, it is easy to see that there are very few politicians who have a Mexican ancestry. In fact, interests of a large ethnic group are barely represented in the political system of the USA.

Thanks to civil rights group (MALDEF, a Los Angeles-based nonprofit organization, for instance), the situation is changing. Several cities in California switched to district-based voting which helps Mexican American officials to be elected in city councils. As a result, they can make a difference on a local level.

Nonetheless, it is not enough. Crucial decisions are made on state and federal levels. In order to be heard, our community has to eliminate artificial barriers created by mercenary politicians. To put it bluntly, it looks like they deliberately chose the way of creating different obstacles not to let representatives of distinct minorities become policy makers.

Hundreds sing for Charlottesville. Candles of peace replaced torches of hate last night as protestors sang together during this moving vigil four days after racist violence erupted in the town. ‘This Land is Your Land’ ❤️ (Credit: Getty)

Globe Editorial: Donald Trump keeps finding ways to make America worse
🔺

Every day, it’s something else. Sometimes, every hour. Just when you think Donald Trump has sunk as low as he can go, another trench opens up beneath him and he pulls his country deeper into the abyss.
🔺

But voters didn’t elect the President in the hope that he would become synonymous with record-setting fatuity. They voted for Mr. Trump because he promised to make America great again. Instead, he is plunging it into constitutional crisis. 🔺

Americans now are faced with the very real possibility that the President asked then-director of the FBI, James Comey, to stop investigating Michael Flynn, Trump’s disgraced national security adviser, after Mr. Flynn resigned from his position. That, at least, is the most logical – not to mention most disturbing – reading of an alleged private exchange between Mr. Trump and Mr. Comey that preceded his firing last week.
🔺

There is no question that Congress must investigate every aspect of Mr. Comey’s firing, in order to determine whether or not the President is trying to interfere with a criminal probe that could end his political career. It seems more and more likely that will happen.
🔺

But regardless of the outcomes of any investigations, it’s unlikely that they would lead to Mr. Trump’s impeachment.
🔺

The House and the Senate are controlled by Republicans, and Mr. Trump still has the support of the party’s congressional leadership. He also still has the support of the vast majority of Republican voters. Republican politicians may care about the sanctity of American democracy and believe that no person, not even the President, is above the law. But their bigger worry is that they could lose their party’s nomination to another Republican candidate deemed more loyal to Mr. Trump when midterm elections are held next year.
🔺

Mr. Trump is now off on a nine-day overseas trip. It’s a convenient moment to get out of the country. He’ll be spending much of his trip in the Mideast, a politically charged region whose sensitivities and complexities would test any leader. 🔺

What could possibly go wrong? #uspolitics #comey #donaldtrump

People gather in front of the White House on August 13, 2017 in Washington, DC for a vigil in response to the death of a counter-protestor in the August 12th 'Unite the Right' rally the turned violent in Charlottesville, Virginia.
President Donald Trump condemned white power groups by name for the first time on Monday, two full days after a white supremacist protest in Virginia turned violent. “We must unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry and violence,” Trump said during a hastily arranged White House press conference. “We must unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry and violence. Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminal and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.” Read the latest at FT.com

President Donald Trump and the entire chamber applaud Carryn Owens, widow of Navy Seal Ryan Owens, on Capitol Hill in Washington. Owen's father had refused to meet the President after calling for a full investigation into his son's death during a US special forces raid in Yemen in January.

Playing cards with these 4 with very old cards of *Indians of America*... thinking that these are so not politically correct today that they could not even be sold... But do you realize that *POLITICALLY CORRECT* doesn't even mean anything anymore... especially in the US right now. We'll have to stop using that expression... until further notice.

Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has insisted that US President Donald Trump is still welcome to visit Ireland. Mr Varadkar made this statement following comments from the Minister for Social Protection, Regina Dothery who made claims that Ireland should stand up to President Trump. #irishpolitics #uspolitics #trump #varadkar #globalpolitics #politicsworldwide #theunknownpolitician #politics

To be fair to Trump it's not so much a presidency as it is a train wreck circus

POTUS Trump's approval rating in the 3 swing states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, & Wisconsin has dropped to a average of 35% between the three, all lower than 40%.

This is going around on Facebook, not sure of the source but wanted to boost it. 💪 • #antifa #fascism #politics #uspolitics #liberals #liberalism #leftists # #nazis #nazism #whitesupremacists #virginia #sj #socialjustice #activism #important

This is truly a heartfelt and beautiful story, article is by The Washington Post. I recommend the song "Kenji" by Fort Minor. It's inspired by the real life story of a Japanese-American man and his family and what they went through in the internment camps.

Welcome to the page. I will be posting and talking about news of all different subjects (U.S/Foreign politics, world news, society, culture, environment, science, technology, etc.) as a politically progressive and socially liberal dude, thanks for the follow and I hope you enjoy this page.

"Science Fiction? Es scheint als habe El Akkad die Gegenwart lediglich radikal und logisch weitergedacht." "American War" ist eine definitive Lese-Empfehlung.

This lady says that all white people are racist. The only racist one there is her. Then she thinks we're gonna send her money on PayPal.
