Rolando Villazón

World-class opera tenor Rolando Villazón, originally from Mexico City, sings Verdi´s “Requiem”…

Mexican-Americans are the dominant Latin culture in the United States. The western third of our country used to be Mexico. Mexican-American culture was once concentrated in the former Mexican states of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, and California. Today Mexican-Americans contribute to the life and economies of every state.

Mexican-Americans are New York City’s third-largest Latin community. We are projected to be NYC’s leading Latin group within the next five years (2020).

Mexico is the world’s largest Spanish-speaking country. (The United States is second.) That makes Mexico the center of the Spanish-speaking world.

In the 2016 election cycle, Mexican-Americans have been the target of a lot of political hate-speech. The things being said about our Mexican-American communities are not any more true than the things that were once said about our African-, Jewish-, Irish-, and Italian-American communities. Like everyone else, we work hard to contribute to the future of our country.
