In Cuba nothing is what it seems. But Cubans can make a difference, seizing the challenges in a unique time of opportunities for changes.
Even with Lemonade's cameos of of Afro-Cubana sisters Ibeyi -- which I took to symbolize the interconnectedness of Afro-Latinidad within the diaspora -- it still wasn't about us. It's okay that it isn't about us.
Even after Donald Trump's big wins on Tuesday, a majority of Republicans remain skeptical of his first policy suggestion, telling pollsters on their way out of the voting booth, as they have for months, that they want the immigrants to stay.
The automatic rise of Michel Temer to power, thanks to the collapse of Dilma's government, doesn't solve the political and ethical crisis that Brazil currently faces. On the contrary, this supposed solution may fan the flames.
I didn't let it faze me that they were out of hot water, or that she was using cheap shampoo. Maybe it was the blaring bachata that drowned out any concerns I should've had. Whatever it was, I knew I'd be back.

I am a Latina immigrant, originally from Peru, and I grew up in an immigrant neighborhood near New York City. The hateful right-wing anti-immigrant rhetoric has had a disastrous effect on communities such as mine.

On March 16, the media said it was over, and they're saying it's over now. But those who "do their own research" knew then that the movement had many contests left to win, and they know now that 19 states and 1,401 delegates are still available.
Raul Castro erupts in fury at a press conference when asked about the existence of political prisoners in Cuba, he gets entangled in his earphones and comes out with some rigmarole a few feet from Barack Obama, who looks like the owner and master of the situation.
Bodies are such a gift, and the choices we make with them aren't always comfortable or easy. But they are deeply personal. To all the women out there, I hope you know: the only thing that will always be too small is the size of everyone else's perception of what your body should look like.
Beyoncé's album is not an attack on anyone. It is a celebration of the strength, endurance and potential within black womanhood. The fact that you are mad/uncomfortable/agitated about it is evidence enough of how blind you are to the realities of being one.
Just a little reminder: Who your friend does or does not sleep with is none of your business, nor does it dictate their worth as a human. Embracing your sexuality, whatever it may be, can be threatening to people. Eff those people... metaphorically speaking.
