Politics | Donald Trump is Rebuffed

Here's how the Latin Recording Academy reacted to Donald Trump...


After Donald Trump rocked the U.S. with his stances on immigration, American Latinos everywhere were in turmoil. It’s hard to be a witness of something like this and not have strong feelings one way or the other. So we were pleased as punch to hear that The Latin Recording Academy decided to take a stand and release a statement for American Latinos everywhere. Polite and to the point, we couldn’t agree more with what they said.

As a U.S.-based organization representing thousands of creators involved in the making of Latin music throughout the world, The Latin Recording Academy® does not insert itself into the political arena unless to elevate key music issues impacting the quality of life and cultural condition of its members. Given the continued discriminatory statements made by Mr. Donald Trump, The Latin Recording Academy issues the following statement on behalf of President/CEO Gabriel Abaroa Jr.

“Whether you’re talking about Mexico, South America, Central America, Spain or Portugal, Latin culture has been so beautifully intertwined into American culture that it is almost imperceptible to recognize the benefits of that integration. Nonetheless, we should not take for granted the countless contributions Latinos make to American culture. Given his recent statements, Mr. Trump needs a respectful reminder of that fact. This denial of Latino contributions and the division it will create cannot be tolerated, and we appeal to Mr. Trump to discontinue his affront on the millions of Latinos who have helped make America the great nation it is. Just as music brings people together, so, too, should those who aim to lead us.”
