Diversity Roundup: Groups Use Social Media to Target Hispanic Voters

August 7, 2012

Hispanic Audiences Aren’t Impressed with American TV: English-language television isn’t a big draw for Hispanic audiences despite American media’s focus on appealing to them, the New York Times reports. Even in shows like Modern Family, where one of the main stars is Colombian Sofia Vergara, TV networks with English-language programming have failed to hit the big numbers when it comes to drawing in the young, bilingual --and highly valuable--Hispanic audience.

Mississippi Church Admits Gaffe in Refusal to Marry Black Couple
: The Mississippi church that drew criticism after its refusal to marry a black couple has issued an apology for its actions--unbeknownst to the couple themselves, the Associated Press reports. The church posted an apology on its website asking for “forgiveness and reconciliation” with Charles Wilson and Te’Andrea Henderson Wilson, the couple who moved their wedding, and other church members. The Wilsons claim the church has never contacted them personally.

Outreach Groups Use Social Media to Target Young Hispanic Voters: Latino advocacy organizations are teaming up to increase voter registrations and engagement among Hispanic voters, and they’re paying special attention to young Hispanic eligible voters who typically have low registration and turnout. Groups such as National Council of La Raza and Voto Latino are using social media channels to mobilize eligible voters, NBC Latino reports.

Sikh Temple Gunman May Have Been Affiliated with White Supremacy: Wade Michael Page, the man who police say was behind a Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting that left 6 worshipers dead, played in white supremacist bands and urged other skinheads to take action in support of their cause, the Associated Press reports. Police officials say they still don’t know Page’s exact motives for targeting the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek. Page was shot dead by police after opening fire on them.

NYC Police Pat Downs Present Deeper Problems for Women: Civil-rights advocates have largely criticized New York’s stop-and-frisk laws that give police officers the right to  conduct street stops and searches if there is reasonable suspicion the person may be armed with a gun. But the women who have been stopped say they are facing the discomfort of being patted down by male officers and having their personal belongings--such as underwear and toiletries--unearthed in public, the New York Times reports.
