The 9 Things Latinos Want to See Happen in 2016
2015 was a CRAZY year. From Donald Trump joining the presidential race to Selena getting an entire festival devoted to her music, and more. But we aren’t there yet. There are so many things we still need to see happen. 2016, we’re hoping you follow through. Here’s what we need:

This Taco Bell taco is cute and all, but it isn’t a LEGIT taco so try again. Thx.
Our Latino parents still have curfews for us, whether you live at home or not. This needs to change.

You know that late night text mami sends to make sure you are home and safe…even if you live in a different country.

It’s an offense that there are over 54 million Latinos living in the US and we still have to sneak Tapatío bottles into restaurants.
We need this question banned.

It’s time for Selena Quintanilla, a.k.a. La Reina, to get a damn star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
If people are still grooving to “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” and “Como La Flor” all these years later, it’s time to recognize her as the cultural powerhouse we all know she is.
It would be so awesome for politicians to finally decide on immigration reform.

These are people’s lives you are messing with. It’s time to stop making millions of families live in limbo. Decide already.

It’s seriously about time for the Mexican government to pony up and either find the students or admit something is terribly wrong.
And, biggest of all, can this man finally tell us that this has all been a joke for publicity?

Because no one in the world is going to take us seriously if we let him get into the White House.
