Burlington Shooter ID'ed as Arcan Cetin, Immigrant from Turkey
Police have identified the alleged shooter in the Burlington mall attack as Arcan Cetin, a legal immigrant & permanent resident from Turkey.

Oh look, another muslim import from the Middle East that went and killed a bunch of innocent Americans again.

The media even reported, after the shooting, that he was Hispanic.  That ended up being a complete lie!  Way to throw the Hispanic community under the bus to cover for another muslim killing people! Is this going to be the new tactic by the Left to protect their chosen muslim imports?  Try to make it out to be a Hispanic instead?  So disgusting.  You all better start waking up to these islamic terrorists that obama keeps importing and hillary promised to increase the imports by 500% is she wins the election.  Hell no!  This murderer from Turkey also stated on his Twitter that he would vote for hillary.  Very telling.

In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month (Sep 15—Oct 15), the Brooklyn Museum is pleased to feature a work each week that honors the heritage and cultures of Hispanic and Latin Americans living in the United States. These works, which are on display in various galleries of the museum, relate to ancient cultures from which many Hispanic Americans trace their ancestry or to artisans of the Spanish Colonial era whose creativity reflects an intermingling of indigenous and European traditions. The works presented pay homage to three of the Latin American countries that celebrate the anniversary of their independence this month: Costa Rica, Guatemala and Mexico.

When people think of pre-Columbian art from Guatemala, they may often think of the Mayan culture because of the many archaeological sites all over the country. However, sometimes an object breaks the conventional pattern such as this decorative lid from a Teotihuacan-style incensario or incense burner that was discovered in the Tiquisate Region of Guatemala’s Pacific coast.

The ancient city of Teotihuacan was located in the Valley of Mexico, some 700 miles away from Guatemala’s Pacific coast. In 500 C.E., Teotihuacan was one of the largest cities in the world, with an estimated population of 150,000. It was so important and influential that its culture, religion, and art spread throughout Mexico and Central America.

This incense burner lid represents a local version of the Teotihuacan prototype. In fact, the original molds for the decorative elements were probably brought from Central Mexico and assembled in Guatemala. The lid depicts the head and torso of a warrior wearing a large headdress, nose plaque, and earplugs. He holds a bundle of spear ends in his right hand and a knife in his left. Three spear-end bundles also adorn the headdress.

Just a reminder:

Lin- Manuel Miranda wrote In the Heights to prove that Latinos aren’t knife wielding criminals.

Lin-Manuel Miranda didn’t want to focus on the guy selling drugs on the corner, he wanted to focus on the guy who owners the corner store.

Lin-Manuel Miranda wanted to so Latinos in college.

Lin-Manuel Miranda wanted to show Latinos wishing to change the world.

Lin-Manuel Miranda wanted to show Latino business owners.

Lin-Manuel Miranda wanted to show even though Latino culture is different, we are still legitimate Americans.

Lin-Manuel Miranda set In the Heights happen during July 3rd to July 5th.

Lin-Manuel Miranda shows the barrio celebrating the 4th of July.

Lin-Manuel Miranda also shows the barrio being incredibly prideful of their country of origin.

Lin-Manuel Miranda is saying we being proud of one country does not invalidate the love for another.

In the Heights is as much of an American Musical as Hamilton

MEXICAN NOT LATINO. Latinos are Anglo Europeans from Italy. NOT HISPANIC. Hispanics are Anglo Europeans from Spain. In the United Stated of America we each own a constitutional first amendment right to have our ethnicity clearly and properly acknowledged.
The children of the sun
A rich culture heritage
A proud indigenous people
The cultural of our choosing
Because we refuse to be anything else

Racist customers stiff Latina waitress, write 'We only tip citizens' on check

‘I was born here’

Elledge is of Honduran and Mexican descent, but she was born in the US.

“it doesn’t really matter if I’m Hispanic or American, whatever you want to call it, I’m still a person, you should still treat me with respect.”

To some Americans if you are not white, you are not American.That you are a born American citizen,makes no difference to them. Funny thing is that, the REAL Americans are the Native Americans and they are not white, nor is their original language “english”.

Being nasty to some 18 year old based on nothing more than her appearance…they deserve to be outed for exactly what they are, racists.
