The El Paso shooting must be seen in a broader context of racial violence at the US-Mexico border

Share this:

The recent shooting at the Cielo Vista Walmart in El Paso has been depicted as a tragedy for local people, reigniting well-practiced debates about gun control, video games, mental health, and “lone wolf” extremism.

    Bicentenary celebrations of Latin American independence obscure the complex realities of the birth of nations

Bicentenary celebrations of Latin American independence obscure the complex realities of the birth of nations

Share this:

The inevitable human complexities of history should not be seen as skeletons in our collective closet. They bring us closer to a real understanding of how we became the people and peoples that we are today, writes Gregorio Alonso.
