About 70 percent of the entire Miami population are Hispanics and Latinos, and within their communities, populations are changing rapidly. Brazilians, Venezuelans, and other immigrants are in fact recreating the city, and the events that are going on throughout Latin America are affecting the changes significantly. Journalists covering Miami Latinos are discussing not only the news items about Cuba or Venezuela but also cover unique story and news from these communities. Check out this old Miami joke: Latinos love to visit Miami because the city’s so near to the United States. Or the chestnut about that Miami is Latin America’s capital, or Miami is Latin America where the phones are working. And so on…. Just see that Miami is taking pride in saying: ‘We are Latin American just as much as we are American. That is a good thing….Except when it is not.
