HSN Hispanic Heritage Month?
Really, HSN? We don’t get enough of this everywhere else? We have to read announcements in English and Spanish?
Will you have OTHER heritage months – like Italian, German, Irish, English, Swedish, etc.?
I’ve had enough of this. I will do my best to TUNE OUT HSN and not visit the website. I have been watching and BUYING for about 10 years. I will cut it down or QUIT.
But, maybe you’ll get OTHER customers.
Instead of saying this heritage is wrong for having a month, promote the race you want it to be that is advertised. You are wasting energy by trashing something that exists which I did not create.
can you imagine if we came out with a white European month ? it would be blasted off the calendar in 2 hours.
That’s not the "arguing" I’m referring to. Arguing can also mean to provide reasons for being against (or for) something. I was merely educating some of the posters that the whole Hispanic Heritage Month is law that was enacted by Pres Reagan. It appeared that some of the posters were irritated with HSN for celebrating HHM.
Folks that do celebrate, commemorate, shop,decorate their home, party or whatever is done for group months have a merry happy.:heart:
As I stated before, HHM was enacted into law and implemented by President Reagan. Hispanics aren’t the only ones who get a month of celebration. African Americans, Women, LGBT, Irish-Americans, Jewish-Americans, etc. have a month-long celebration. Are you going to argue those as well?
A particular heritage month is not necessary. We celebrate our heritage with our own associations.
I see your point. However, QVC does do a big thing for Irish holidays (don’t know if its a full month though). Italian heritage is not widespread like the Latin American speaking countries ~ it is one country in Europe. Has different regions but that’s not the same. I don’t think other groups you mentioned need an entire month of cultural awareness. However, since so many people from wthin the Latin American disapora are so different (based on regions) I guess they had to give it a month.
Bolivia, Paraguay, Chile, Peru, Colombia, Peru, Chile, Ecuador, Cuba, Nicaragua and so many more.
I missed that. Who read announcements in Spanish?
As far as Hispanic Heritage Month, it started in 1968 to cover a 30-day period. It starts on 15
Sep which is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries. Mexico celebrates their independence on 16 Sep. Hispanic Heritage Month was enacted into law in 1988.
That’s why HSN is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month. It doesn’t mean they favor Hispanics over Italians, Germans, Irish, etc.
If we lived in Germany we would speak German, France french etc. England english, America English, Mexico Spanish
I’ve got a great idea. Let’s make every month of the year American month, and let’s call it…umm…American month! We are all living here as Americans, natural born citizens, naturalized citizens, and off the books citizens (you know…illegal aliens). That way, NO ONE will be left out!
HERITAGE*I find it very offensive if other cultures are not included,and as said before all the people you are calling "Hispanic" is lumping all different people into one group.MAYBE THINK ABOUT A MULTI-CULTURAL OR INTERNATIONAL DAY which everyone can celebrate.Have different chefs,designers,models,may favorite foods and customs.Most of our ancestors came from other countries and had to learn the language,sometimes even their names.Anyone recall ELLIS ISLAND?We are a melting pot and should celebrate together! **Isn’t here a version of HSN in different languages??? LOVE TO ALL OUT CULTURES IN THE USA***
OH, I just love this! I also think it’s important to celebrate a great variety of cultures. We must make SURE all possible nationalities and combinations thereof are included in every aspect of living. Just imagine how awful it would be to be from a culture that never gets celebrated! Poor Mi-Tsoghos and Kereks; they need to be celebrated too!
I also think it’s offensive to say "Hispanic" or "Latina". What if they are Brazilian or Portuguese or Spanish from Spain?! And, aren’t we leaving out entire groups of other nationalities. Why are all the other nationalities of the world forgotten? If someone speaks Spanish, it doesn’t mean the person is from Spain or even from the hispanic, latina, brazilian, spanish culture. Why limit human beings like that?
While we’re at it, why are Arabian peoples so cruelly under served on Hsn? Where are the burqas?
The foreigners that come here don’t want to be labeled American, even though they’re here in this country living the "American dream." They HAVE to, just HAVE to announce their NATIONALITIES. Hsn must be SURE to recognize all cultures in their scripts! Oh, yes!
Don’t see a thing wrong with it.
Tells me they have a huge hispanic market.
Cater to what makes money.When you run a business that’s what you do.
I have mixed feelings about Hispanic Heritage Month. I’m in favor of Cinquo de Mayo, as it is that nationality’s equivalent of St. Patrick’s Day. It makes me terribly sad when I see news stories of fights about displays of the American flag on Cinquo de Mayo, however. Our flag is proudly displayed in Boston’s St. Patrick’s Day parade, and it should be welcome at Cinquo de Mayo celebrations as well. I think many Hispanics would agree.
Illegal immigration and politicians’ divide-and-conquer strategy are what bring about the bad feelings about Hispanic Heritage Month. Americans rightly want everyone to be treated equally and for legal immigrants to assimilate while politicians and agitators want the opposite. It’s sad. Every ethnic group that settles here (legally) changes us, but we also change them, or at least we should. They must learn about our Bill of Rights, the separation of powers in our government, and all the things that must be maintained to keep Americans free. They bring new words for our language, new music, and, my favorite, new foods. I think all Americans appreciate and welcome immigrants who come here to become one of us and join us in this experiment that has produced what has been and should remain the freest country on earth.
There are over 20 countries in which Spanish is their primary language.
A person from any Spanish speaking country is automatically labeled Hispanic in this Country. Throughout the years, I have actually seen definitions to include Spanish speaking when referencing Hispanic.
Only a person that has a blood line from Spain is Hispanic.
The origin of the United States is many races. If you do not believe me, look this up.
I have white skin with freckles, green eyes, and red hair.
I grew up speaking both English and Spanish. In my teen years, I taught myself to read and write Spanish. I have no accent in English or Spanish.
When people try to guess my race, I have been called Italian, German, Swedish, African American, Irish, etc. If you saw clear Jello, you just saw me. :womansurprised: We do not all have sombreros, donkeys, dark skin, and carry a Tecate.
I am Hispanic. I do not need anything written in Spanish for me to understand what is written. I can read English, just fine. I do not need a special month labeled Hispanic to buy from HSN. As it is now, I buy way too much from HSN without an Hispanic month.
I am going back to bed to dream about Spin The Wheel returning with discounts and free shipping.
Good Night. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
