Congratulations to Cristela Alonzo, a very talented woman, for landing a deal with ABC/Disney.  But LatinHeat (see link below) has to stop faking the funk and remember that ABC (which is owned by the Disney corporation) only finally gave a chance to Latino performers, starting with George Lopez at the beginning of the new millenium, only after years of protest and pressure from groups like the National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC).  Mickey Mouse has finally learned how to exploit la raza (e.g. Selena Gomez is a Disney product and is extremely popular) so we don’t owe them anything since our community still continues to take los ninos to the overpriced happiest place on earth.  But it looks like the Chicana George Lopez show may be coming soon.  Orale!
