Milwaukee, WI – On Thursday, Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) learned that former Esperanza Unida Executive Director Robert F. Miranda filed a civil lawsuit for slander against Felix Questell from Mikwaukee claiming that Questell has been making false allegations against Miranda for over a year. According to Miranda’s civil case claim, Questell in his Facebook (FB) account page posted that Miranda stole from the community and had destroyed the community, which in fact Questell has failed to provide any proof and it seems the Hispanic community is striving today and growing in population as well.
In a FB post on Thursday, Questell even posted that HNNUSA should write about “…El Gordo who Stole from the Community and destroyed it!!! That’s all.” Which definitely Questell meant to say Miranda, but he says, “Did I say Names??”
HNNUSA attempted to get a response from Miranda, but Miranda could not be reached for comment.
The Milwaukee County civil court case against Questell was filed on May 27, 2016 after he failed to retract his false allegations targeting Miranda. A conference hearing on the Miranda v. Questell case is set for August 15.

Milwaukee, WI – On Tuesday, several off-duty Milwaukee Police officers and on-duty officers are being called as heroes for locating and preventing an unaccompanied child with autism from falling into the Menomonee River. According to a press release by the Milwaukee Police Department, Alert on and off-duty Milwaukee Police officers worked together and helped rescue a child with autism near Miller Park. MPD bike officer Juan Lopez was on patrol for the July 26 baseball game when he was flagged down by a father from Glendale who said his 6-year-old son with autism was missing. Officer Lopez and Officer Michael Maldonado began immediately searching the surrounding area. A few minutes later, a woman yelled to officers that the child was in the Menomonee River near the pedestrian bridge.
The child was standing in the water and MPD Detective Alexander Ayala and Officer Jose Acevedo, who were off-duty and attending a tailgate, ran to the river and took the boy to safety. The child was reunited with his parents and no medical attention was needed.
The quick response by everyone involved prevented a potentially dangerous situation and demonstrated that officers, even when off-duty, are always there to help the community, according to the MPD news release.

Milwaukee’s Puerto Rican Festival Flyer Draws Criticism With Slogan “This Ain’t Chicago!”

Some people in Milwaukee and Chicago are taking offense that a flyer for the 4th Annual Puerto Rican Festival includes a slogan, “This Ain’t Chicago!”

Milwaukee, WI – A flyer posted in Facebook and being circulated by members of the Puerto Rican Team (PRT) in Milwaukee is generating criticism after a slogan saying, “This Ain’t Chicago!” was included. Some people in Milwaukee and Chicago took offense, but most likely the PRT wants to make sure people don’t confuse their smaller festival with the huge Puerto Rican Festival in Chicago, which takes place in June.
This year, a new sign was placed to identify Humboldt Park in Milwaukee where the PR festival will take place on August 14 at the Milwaukee County Park, but the name of the park was mispelled “Humbolt Park” as well. Hopefully, people won’t confuse the Milwaukee PR festival with the Chicago PR festival or get lost because of the typo in the park’s sign.
Chill out people, it is only a Milwaukee PR festival and PRT, stop trying to keep up with the Joneses in Chicago.
You would think that the PRT in Milwaukee would try and welcome Chicago’s Puerto Rican community to Milwaukee for its event, but with a slogan “This Ain’t Chicago!” is bad advertising and not good public relations or marketing strategy to generate funds, some might argue.

WikiLeaks Released DNC Email Referring To Latinos As Taco Bowls

Racist officials from the Democratic National Convention Committee referred to Hispanics as Taco Bowl Engagement.

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – An e-mail leaked by WikiLeaks on Friday showed that members of the Democratic National Convention (DNC) engaged in racism via an e-mail blast and referred to Hispanics as “Taco Bowl Engagement.” The e-mail by Rebecca Christopher from the DNC refers to Latinos in a video script as Taco Bowl Engagement to attack Trump.
Christopher and others in the DNC who received the e-mail blast definitely were planning to fuel more racism and hatred around the country with their negative ad campaign.
On Sunday, former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and U.S. Representative from Florida resigned as Chairperson days after the WikiLeaks e-mails scandal broke linking her to corruption in the DNC. Schultz joined the Clinton campaign later on Sunday after she was linked to conspiring with other DNC members to get Hillary Clinton nominated for president by unfair corrupt practices while she was the chairperson of the DNC. The DNC Committee also conspired to make false allegations for the purpose to keep Bernie Sanders from being nominated for president during the primary elections.
In another leaked email, Luis Miranda, the DNC Communications Director received an email on May 22 indicating that Hispanics are brand loyal consumers and should be marketed as corporations do, so the DNC can get them to support the Democrats in November.
Also that Hispanics and their families are “most responsive to story telling…,” according to the email.
The DNC email generalized about Latinos and is deemed racist as well.
The DNC Convention starts on Monday and ends on Thursday in Philadelphia.
