My Mamma Is Sicilian she never wanted to watch American TV but every Saturday night she had to watch Sabado Gigante and watch Don. Francisco. She adored him. Sadly My Mamma passed away in 2013, but because of her I learned so much about other cultures. She loved the Latino culture, their music, their strength, their passion and ability to bring joy to others.

Actually, I didn't know that until I move to the US. The Cubans I met in Central America were very nice and friendly. I've been told that Argentinians think they are not Latinos but Europeans. The truth is that the majority of the population in Argentina is white and from German or Italian roots.
