Yes, we’re all getting ready for the Super Bowl this weekend (even though my team was eliminated in the opening round of the playoffs, which sucks).
So I’m not going to dwell on this study that points out how far Latinos have to go to achieve political power that is commiserate with our growing population.
But basically, if Hispanics had representation in Congress that matched our actual presence in the nation, there would be 90 Latino representatives or senators. Instead, there are 37. Just nine of those are Latinas.
Like I said, it’s too depressing to rant about at length. So you may now return to your preparations for the big game.
I’m betting on a Seattle upset.
