  1. Dear Alberto:

    I am the father of a son born as a Latino because I wanted him to be one. I am not a Latino by birth but proud to have my offsprings be part of the Latino heritage. His mother is Latina and he is what I would call a HYBRID. I want him to be proud of being a Hybrid. In the Dominican Republic, I want him to be proud of being a son of An American father and a Dominican mother. Lots of African Americans of the 50’s are sons of African-Americans and Latinos. It is the best of both worlds.

    The world will be proud of HYBRIDS because the world is becoming a hybrid world. I hope to spend the rest of my life giving all of my considerable experience to the expansion of Latin culture as an integral part of the general world culture.

    There is one comment for discussion that I would like you to weigh in. Your bloggers comment on how difficult it is to bi-cultural and bi-racial and that is good. But, there are parents of these kids like me who want their kids to grow up in their Spanish heritage. Like Puerto Ricans in Puerto Rico I want and I have my son being brought up in his language and in his culture. I want him to immerse himself in it, because he will have lots of time to be overwhelmed by the Americanism of his bi-culture and bi-racialism life.

    Also do you know of any summer camps on the East Coast that can accomodate my son for the summers? Bi-lingual Summer camps that has its basics in Spanish and English.

    Thank you…

  2. Awesome blog! These are great things to know. Especially since I plan on getting married to an amazing Dark Skinned Haitian woman and having beautiful, healthy bi-racial children.

  3. Jeff,

    You commented about marrying “an amazing dark-skinned Haitian woman and have beautiful, healthy bi-racial children.” That was in ’09. Today, you’re married to that woman and she’s expecting your first child. You were prophetic. Congratulations to you and your growing family!

    Sincerely,

    Alberto Padron
