Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If everyone who visited our website in the next week donated just $15, we would cover all of our operating costs for the year. We can't do it without you. Please donate today. It takes just a couple of minutes to do your part to make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

This is viewer supported news

By the year 2000, Hispanics will be the largest ethnic group in the United States. And the United States itself will be the fourth largest country in the Hispanic world. This is — and will — have tremendous political repercussions here in the United States and in Latin America. But what does it mean to be Hispanic in the United States? And does the term itself obscure more than it clarifies?

Guest:

  • Eduardo Mendieta, a professor of philosophy at University San Francisco, a private Jesuit College
  • Pedro Lange-Churion, a professor of modern languages at the University San Francisco
