    Had to check on this and it gets complex:
    According to UPI News, on September 28, and on CNN, the Kennedy Center Honors has snubbed Hispanics and Latinos. Except for Plácido Domingo and Chita Rivera, no other person of Hispanic heritage has been honored, which has upset the Hispanic communities.

    however:The selection process is kept secret, though "certain criteria seem apparent: a mix of artistic disciplines, the inclusion of men and women, minority recognition.

    Is this an accusation that “The Kennedy Center Honors” is racist? Careful, that sword cuts both ways.

    Is it possible to complain that a specific subset of society – which has provided a bounty of artistic contributions to our country – is being ignored without it being an accusation of racism?

    The Kennedy Center Honors is just that: Racist!

    BTW…it is strange that most nonhispanic americans either don’t realize they are enjoying a Hispanic artist (i.e. Ritchie “Valens”) or only hear about them once they have had an untimely death.

    Lets hear for it all the great Latin jazz masters that should be there.

    Excellent observation! Let’s see how fast they can back-pedal.

    i have a comment on the wealth of Latin performers however I am unable to word it in a way that both sides wouldn’t take offense to therefore I will forgo my comment.

    Exactly what the Conservative Democrats and super Con Republicans say about Liberal Democrats.

    How much of what is accused of racism is not of an issued of racial bias but of a cultural bias? After all, when most of us think of Raul Julia, we think of his excellent portrayal of Gomez Adams and overlook his fine work as a leading character in the “Taiming of the Shrew” as performed in ‘Shakespear in the Park.’ I only know of this work due to a short clip of his performance show in a tribute to his life on a News Magazine story on what I hazily remember being on CBS.

    There has been a strong Hispanic contribution to the arts, but how much of it has been displayed to the majority of the citizens of the United States instead of culturally selected networks as Univision?

    This is not meant as an insult but as a sincere request for information and knowledge.
