I’m also proud to have written this columna as a Mexican American. Too often, Hispanic-surnamed reporters get pigeonholed into covering only Latino issues. From the start, my bosses wanted me to cover all of California, not just the caliente parts. That mandate made me grow as a writer, and I’d urge editors across the country to follow their example and let Latinos be columnists, instead of only Latino columnists.
