Sabiduría: Learning To Be Latino

Latino USA’s newest producer, Camilo Vargas is from Colombia and moved to the US for Journalism School at Columbia. He’s never had to think about race the way people think about it in the US. He’s perceived as Latino even though he identifies as Latin American. For this week’s sabiduría, or words of wisdom, he talks about being a foreign reporter in the US and his quest to find out what being “Latino” actually means.
