This week’s Time magazine cover story posits that the Latino vote could be the deciding factor in this year’s presidential election. To support the story, Time sent photographer Marco Grob to Phoenix to photograph the different faces of Latino voters for the issue’s cover.
“There were many unique challenges involved in this shoot,” Grob says in the deep caption of an online slideshow of his photographs. “The terms ‘Latino’ and ‘Latina’ have a vast identity of their own, so for the duration of this project we strove to break some of those stereotypes.”
Apparently, Grob’s definition of the changing Latino identity includes Asian people. Because at least one of the faces depicted on the cover isn’t Latino. OC Weekly‘s Michelle Woo noticed the screwup.
A friend of mine, Michael Schennum, is the short-haired gentleman in the top row, center, behind the letter “M.” He is half Chinese and half white. Not Latino. Not even a little bit. Not even one of those Chinese-Mexicans from Mexicali…At least as far as Schennum knows.
Schennum, who is a staff photographer for The Arizona Republic, wrote on his Facebook page, “They never told me what it was for or [asked] if I was Latino.”

I am actually a Knicks fan and an ardent supporter of Jeremy Lin. Not surprisingly, he has handled the entire situation with grace and class.
Now I have to find a new job and move on with my life.
Their widely picked up Bloomberg News piece, filed yesterday, revealed that not one but two California opportunists have filed preposterous trademark applications for the term “Linsanity.” The first applicant lives in Alhambra, the second in Los Altos. Both filed last week ahead of Lin’s 38-point performance against the Lakers.
The Asian-American point guard from Harvard torched the Los Angeles Lakers Friday night, scoring 38 points in a 92-85 victory at Madison Square Garden.
In response to Lin’s great performance, FoxSports.com columnist Jason Whitlock tweeted, “Some lucky lady in NYC is gonna feel a couple of inches of pain tonight.”
Whitlock’s tweet caught the attention of the Asian American Journalists Association, who wrote the following on their Facebook page Saturday night:
