Arianna Huffington Introduces HuffPost LatinoVoices
First Al Madrigal on the Daily Show and now this.
From Arianna's introduction:
"This is truly a Latino moment.
Latino Americans -- 50 million strong and counting -- are both the largest and the fastest-growing minority in the country.
They played a decisive role in the 2008 election, making the difference for Obama in Florida, Colorado, and New Mexico. They represent around a trillion dollars of buying power (roughly 10 percent of U.S. consumer spending). And with 32 million Hispanics online, they are among the most wired and connected groups in the country."
I'm interested in the 32 million Latin@s online figure because of the possibilities and potential I've always seen social media and blogging posing. A good story they posted from the Los Angeles Times: http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-0811-computers-20110811,0,4966839.story
