Austin Business Journal

For the second year in a row, Hispanic magazine has crowned Austin as the country’s best place for Hispanics to live and work.

The magazine cites low crime rates, reasonable living costs and a “happening” cultural scene as pluses for Hispanics in Austin.
In compiling the list, editors of Hispanic magazine considered crime statistics, home sales figures and media sources such as and Sperling’s Best Places.

Also on the top 10 list, in descending order, are Albuquerque, N.M.; Los Angeles; San Jose, Calif.; San Antonio; Las Vegas; El Paso; San Diego; Miami; and Chicago.

The list appears in the magazine’s August edition.

Hispanic Magazine should change it’ name to “Latino Magazine” if it is to suggest that the top “Hispanic” places to live actually lie in the Mexican belt or main sphere of most Mexican immigration, leaving Miami at the bottom of the list and New York completely off.  Editors of this magazine should stop to consider that in spite of low crime rates and home sales figures, hispanics would not neccessarily consider the almost exclusively homogenous Latino/Mexican culture as a happening cultural scene.  We are subjected to enough of that from Univision and all other Mexican broadcasting systems!

Another angry non-mexican hispanic, probably in Miami and either from Argentina, Cuba or one of those southamerican countries that do deem themselves white or not mestizos as their mexican counterparts. Just my thought. I could be wrong.
