Latinos Are Powerful. Do You Believe It Now?

It was a busy day for Latinos in Social Media. We saw on Facebook and Twitter that Disney Corporation had filed a federal trademark to copyright "Día de los Muertos" because of their upcoming movie related to that Holiday, and all hell broke loose. Read the story here:

Disney Applies To Trademark 'Dia De Los Muertos' For Upcoming Movie 

First of all, "Día de los Muertos" is a HOLIDAY, a Latino Holiday! What made them think that they could treat it as a piece of merchandise? Obviously, they didn't think it through.

Fortunately, many, many Latinos were able to quickly organize and file a petition to make Disney stop this charade. It was offensive and it made us feel like we are unwanted except, when they can make a profit out of our culture.


The amazing part is that the story about this crazy idea was out this morning, and we shut it down on the same day. THAT ladies and gentlemen, is called "Latino Power!"

  1. No Latino Power"...... No se trata de hechar bronca por todo como lo hace la gente "no educada,civilizada O MUY civilizada ( como los gringos). Se llama : "No nos dejemos hacer Pendejos por ser Disney.....Q' tan bonitos recuerdos tenemos TODOS en el Mundo de ese gran Sr.Disney y, su firma del negocio que ahora esta manejada por OTRA gente TOTALMENTE diferente a lo que WALT DISNEY es y realizo.
    Esta idea "mafufa " si , en verdad no hay que apoyarla ni hacer tanto P2 pero NO es nada de Power ni naranjas"...y menos Latino P.... Es una tradicion MEXICANA NO LATINA; es parte de LAS TRADICIONES LATINAS POR FORMAR MEXICO PARTE DE LA AMERICA LATINA, pero hasta ahi.
    Saludos!!

    1. De acuerdo en que no podemos pelear por todo. Sin embargo, hoy se notó que gracias a la unión de varios Latinos, nos hicimos escuchar.
