In keeping with our cultural theme for Hispanic Heritage month I wanted to share a couple of clips from the HBO series Habla.
I love this one in particular because it celebrates the fact that in this country are just numbers. But don’t we hate being just a number? Really, it gets at the culture of “meritocracy”that is unique of the U.S. In other words, were start out with a clean slate, we are just a number and what really counts is out effort and personal merit, not our name or family reputation (which is often valued above personal merit in Latin America).
