Today’s Connecting The Dots #CTD: Race, Power, and Privilege

 On Thursday June 25th, Univision, the largest Spanish-language broadcaster in the US, announced that it would not air the Miss USA pageant in response to racist remarks made by Donald Trump on the issue of Mexican immigrants. After announcing his campaign for Presidency last week, Trump turned to the topic of Mexican immigration, declaring that while some may be good people, Mexicans were bringing drugs, crime, and rapists into the country. Univision decried these remarks, citing the important role that Mexican immigrants and Mexican-Americans have had in their organization.
