There are museums for just about every culture within the United States and many other countries, so a Latino Museum only makes sense. They have been a huge part of the culture for many years, and continue to be, so this sort of thing would be a very big positive.
Latino museums in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Albuquerque
have brought visitors wider awareness of the achievements of Latinos, and a
clearer understanding of the diversity of the Latino community. These museums and others have successfully portrayed many aspects of the Latino experience. A National Latino Museum would
become a noted landmark in Washington, D.C., as it celebrated the countless contributions
generations of Latinos have made to American life.
A firm believer in assimilation as regards immigrants seeking legal status in the United States, I do not endorse the idea of a National Latino Museum. However, realizing certain people do wish to honor their cultural heritage, I'm certainly not averse to a collective of those individuals promoting their particular heritage on the local or state level.
No, I do not think that this is a smart idea at all to have in this country. This is not their country, if they want a museum to go to they need to have one back down in Mexico where they are supposed to be living at right now.
Multitudes of commentators have written and spoken about the perceived increase in partisanship over the past twenty years or so. The evidence for this is rather limited, but it does appear to most people that compromise is harder to arrive at and the bickering is more constant. This lack of bipartisanship has been blamed on extremists in each party, gerrymandered Congressional districts (which lead to the previous possible reason), and even the diffusion of media sources which has served to reinforce more hardened positions since people are only exposed to the urban world.
