In a ceremony held at the Organization of American States ( OAS ), the government of the Dominican Republic today formalized its ratification of the Inter-American Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Persons with Disabilities.

Santo Domingo.- The Ambassador of the Dominican Republic to the OAS, Roberto Alvarez, deposited the instruments of ratification and reiterated his country’s commitment to strengthen and promote human rights and in particular to help integrate people with disabilities into society.

As we all know, the level of state commitment to the human rights of all of its citizens lies in the extent to which it provides help to the most vulnerable groups of society, and unfortunately the disabled have been one sector that traditionally has received little attention from our governments, Ambassador Alvarez said.

The diplomat noted that with this instrument, we hope that not only governments but also organizations throughout society become more aware and begin to join in the effort that belongs to everyone, because this is not only a task for governments, but one that must be carried out by society as a whole.

OAS Secretary General Jose Miguel Insulza announced that in accordance with the terms and commitments of the treaty, the states parties will hold the First Meeting of the Committee for the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Persons with Disabilities, which will take place in Panama City from February 28 to March 1.

Roots of Latino/black anger January 17, 2007

Longtime prejudices, not economic rivalry, fuel tensions.

THE ACRIMONIOUS relationship between Latinos and African Americans in Los Angeles is growing hard to ignore. Although last weekend’s black-versus-Latino race riot at Chino state prison is unfortunately not an aberration, the Dec. 15 murder in the Harbor Gateway neighborhood of Cheryl Green, a 14-year-old African American, allegedly by members of a Latino gang, was shocking.

Yet there was nothing really new about it. Rather, the murder was a manifestation of an increasingly common trend: Latino ethnic cleansing of African Americans from multiracial neighborhoods. Just last August, federal prosecutors convicted four Latino gang members of engaging in a six-year conspiracy to assault and murder African Americans in Highland Park. During the trial, prosecutors demonstrated that African American residents (with no gang ties at all) were being terrorized in an effort to force them out of a neighborhood now perceived as Latino.

For example, one African American resident was murdered by Latino gang members as he looked for a parking space near his Highland Park home. In another case, a woman was knocked off her bicycle and her husband was threatened with a box cutter by one of the defendants, who said, “You niggers have been here long enough.”

At first blush, it may be mystifying why such animosity exists between two ethnic groups that share so many of the same socioeconomic deprivations. Over the years, the hostility has been explained as a natural reaction to competition for blue-collar jobs in a tight labor market, or as the result of turf battles and cultural disputes in changing neighborhoods. Others have suggested that perhaps Latinos have simply been adept at learning the U.S. lesson of anti-black racism, or that perhaps black Americans are resentful at having the benefits of the civil rights movement extended to Latinos.

Although there may be a degree of truth to some or all of these explanations, they are insufficient to explain the extremity of the ethnic violence.

Over the years, there’s also been a tendency on the part of observers to blame the conflict more on African Americans (who are often portrayed as the aggressors) than on Latinos. But although it’s certainly true that there’s plenty of blame to go around, it’s important not to ignore the effect of Latino culture and history in fueling the rift.

MEXICO CITY – A United Nations report says Mexico needs to follow promises with action if it wants to eradicate discrimination against women.

The report applauded Mexico’s 2006 passage of the General Act on Equality between Women and Men. But it expressed concerns that additional steps have to be taken before it can be implemented effectively.The authors of the report say they’re worried the law lacks the necessary components to bring states and cities across the country on board.In particular, the committee is concerned that the National Commission on Human Rights lacks “the necessary financial resources and specially trained personnel to achieve this goal.” The commission is in charge of overseeing enforcement.

Gibson: “Make more babies” because in “Twenty-five years … the majority of the population is Hispanic” July 16, 2006

Is this comment that was made by John Gibson of Fox News’ The Big Story racist? Or is he right that Hispanic-American advocacy groups are set on “retaking old Mexico territories … by pure birth rate.” (Link).

Summary: On The Big Story, John Gibson urged viewers to “[d]o your duty. Make more babies,” because he had found out, from a recently released report, that nearly half of all children under the age of five in the United States are minorities. Gibson added: “You know what that means? Twenty-five years and the majority of the population is Hispanic.” Gibson later repeated: “To put it bluntly, we need more babies.”

On the May 11 edition of Fox News’ The Big Story, host John Gibson advised viewers during the “My Word” segment of his program to “[d]o your duty. Make more babies.” He then cited a May 10 article, which reported that nearly half of all children under the age of five in the United States are minorities. Gibson added: “By far, the greatest number [of children under five] are Hispanic. You know what that means? Twenty-five years and the majority of the population is Hispanic.” Gibson later claimed: “To put it bluntly, we need more babies.” Then, referring to Russia’s projected decline in population, Gibson claimed: “So far, we are doing our part here in America but Hispanics can’t carry the whole load. The rest of you, get busy. Make babies, or put another way — a slogan for our times: ‘procreation not recreation’.”

As The Washington Post reported, the U.S. Census Bureau recently released population estimates that found that nearly half (45 percent) of U.S. children under five are racial or ethnic minorities, and that “the percentage is increasing mainly because the Hispanic population is growing so rapidly.” The U.S. Census notes that, “[e]stimates usually are for the present and the past, while projections are estimates of the population for future dates.” The U.S. Census last released its population projection in March 2004 and found that, by the year 2030, Hispanics will account for roughly 20 percent of the total population in the United States. The U.S. Census also projected that Hispanics will make up 24 percent of the nation’s population by 2050. The two-year old projection has not been updated to take into account the new data on the race and ethnicity of children under five.

Gibson also noted that Europe is “not having enough babies to sustain their population,” adding that “[c]onsequently, they are inviting in more and more immigrants every year to take care of things and those immigrants are having way more babies than the native population, hence ‘Eurabia’.”
