I wish there was less emphasis in 2007 on the "Latino" label, which I believe is totally misused and misguided. We are many things, but it is clear nobody really knows exactly what and who we are here. This year I was tired of salsa, merengue, baseball, and immigration discussions when there is much more to "us" than that. But no one likes to talk about it. When I came from Peru, I realized Puerto Ricans don't really love Dominicans, Argentineans have issues with Chileans, Colombians and Venezuelans are still at war (even here in the United States), and my fellow Peruvians are not too nice to Ecuadoreans and vice versa. It is a complex issue, but "brothers" we are not, maybe distant "cousins."
