The Latinos on Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People” list

General, In the News

Time Magazine released their annual list of “100 Most Influential People.” It includes the names you might expect, like Kanye West, and a few you might not expect, like Narendra Modi. What struck me was who wrote the segements on each person (Modi’s was written by President Barack Obama, while Jorge Ramos’ was written by Christiane Amanpour.)

Of course, there were only six Latinos on the list. Yes, just six on a list of the 100 most influential people. (Sigh.) La Voz pulled together the list for us:

  • Aura Elena Farfán, Guatamalan activist
  • Jorge Paulo Lemann, the 26th richest person in the world
  • Jorge Ramos, national Univision anchor
  • Raúl Castro (a.k.a. Raúl Modesto Castro Ruz), is the … ummm … president of Cuba
  • Gabriel Medina, surfing superstar
  • Pope Francis … enough said

Who would you have added to the list?
