Hey, Latinos in America: Get Off Your Tía’s Couch and Make Yourselves Count!

As of 2010, this blogger is making a personal commitment to support every single initiative aimed at having Latinos take part on the upcoming Census. Why? Well, that’s the least I can do after having read a very disturbing -and quite embarrassing- revelation about my people in the international press.

Asked by The Economist why Latinos continue to be left out in U.S. Census statistics, the executive director of the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials, Arturo Vargas, put it simply:

“If you live in a garage or on somebody’s couch, as many Latinos do, it is easy not to be counted.”

So there you have it. Get off your tía‘s sillón or step out of your pana‘s garage and make yourself count!
