The Wise Latina Club — Viviana Hurtado started her blog in 2010, writing about politics for Latinas who don’t follow politics. Unlike many bloggers, Hurtado is a journalist, one with a PhD from Yale. She’s done some of everything: covered a Mexican presidential election for The New York Times, reported as ABC’s DC-correspondent, and currently writes a political column for Fox News. Her site is really a primer on politics from a Hispanic point of view, explaining to her Latina readers what issues should matter to them and why. But for non-Latina readers, it also gives a good sense of what phrasing makes Latinas cringe and what issues excite them or tick them off. Plus, Hurtado’s crack analysis and sly humor make The Wise Latina Club a pleasure to read.
So, those are five blogs that I find help me cover various minority communities. But I have others on my list, and I know you do, too. Feel free to share in the comments which blogs and websites about social minorities that you’re thankful for. I’d love to check them out.
