Diversity Roundup: Latinos Shifting Arizona to Dems

August 1, 2012

Latinos Shifting Arizona Politics? The exponential growth of Latinos could shift Arizona from a Republican state to a more Democratic one, the The Yuma Sun reports. Those projections come from a new study by the Morrison Institute for Public Policy at Arizona State University, but analysts caution that population numbers don’t necessarily translate to votes.

ABC, Univision Unite: ABC News and Univision have announced their joint partnership in launching a 24-hour news channel targeted to Hispanic viewers, Politico reports. The website will launch this fall, and the channel will debut in mid-2013.

Diversifying Nature Conservancy: A monthlong summer program sponsored by the Nature Conservancy seeks to expose bright urban youths to the wonders of the wilderness, the outdoors, and the importance of conservation, the The New York Times reports. The program seeks to peak the interest of minority students in science and engineering fields with a nod toward environmentalism.

 

The White Olympics? Socioeconomic barriers and cultural traditions may be a major part of why some Olympic sports tend to be whiter than others, the The Huffington Post reports. Gymnastics star Gabby Douglas is notable for her skill, but also for being one of the few black Americans to ever join the gymnastics team at the Games. But the predominant color of sport is not necessarily a matter of racism, but rather of the culture and class welfare of the children who grow up dedicated to it.

Tea Party-Backed Cruz Upends GOP Favorite: Cuban-American Ted Cruz beat Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst in a U.S. Senate runoff  by more than 10 percentage points, a sign that voters have been unhappy with the establishment. The win, according to a report in the The Washington Post, has renewed momentum for tea party activists.
