In solidarity with Mexican artist Elina Chauvet’s “Zapatos Rojos” performance at the Zocalo. If we didn’t abuse drugs, alcohol and women, there would be a little girl wearing these shoes and a million other pairs just like them. It’s time to man up and end violence against women.

¡Get the Latin World!

Latin culture is originally Greek. Romans absorbed it from Greeks in southern Italy and spread the culture around the Mediterranean. When Rome fell, the culture survived among Christians, Jews and Muslims in Spain. The Renaissance made it a pan-European culture.

There were other great civilizations in Africa, Asia and the Americas.  Spices and silk, then sugar and slavery brought us together. In the Americas we mixed into our Latin thing and New York City is our capital. ¡Azúcar!
