Hate Speech – The Latino Congreso Response
July 23, 2012
Hosted by Sharon E. Davis
What is hate speech? Who is harmed, and how? When do words jump on a train that can lead to discrimination and violence? The inflammatory programing and radio talk with anti-Latino themes requires a response. What can anyone do? It appears that too many companies, media outlets, and organizations have some catching up to respect a culture of people who have lived in the Americas longer than most. Should companies be responsible or held accountable for hate speech? The Latino community has over $1 Trillion per year of spending power, and can decide where it will go. Is there a Latino organization or voice that speaks out about targeting Latinos? Why have over 30 companies removed advertising from a radio show? Under the leadership of Mr. Alex Nogales, President and CEO, The National Hispanic Media Coalition made history on May 21, 2012 with another response against hate rhetoric. Mr. Nogales calls it as he sees it. Find out what helps us all get better and be better together.
