    • Dear Selena, I really enjoyed reading your article. We can look back to civil rights movements where assimilation was pushed and Mexicans/ MexAmericans could not embrace their culture. It was frowned upon where even speaking Spanish was prohibited. I think its cool you guys have the same name and that you looked into the figure that Selena Quintanilla reprsents in the Latino/Latinx community. Having representation in a large platform such as the entertainment industry is empowering for our community.

    • Dear Selena, your post brought me great joy. Her music is still played to this day and everyone adores them. It amazes me how much Selena gave to the community of Mexican-Americans. She gave us the power to feel free and true to who we are. If any of her songs are played it gives me great joy how the people around me know every word to her songs. It is sad though to see so many street vendors who are only trying to make a living are beaten on the street. There needs to be a stop to this violence.

  • I agree with what you have said skid row people in Los Angeles. In my county, there is always homeless people, “skid row” among the highways and freeways. Many programs and systems are set up to give the homeless a play to stay, a shelter, or food given and new clothing. I believe there should be a safer and better plan because overall you can not…Read More
