You've probably read the headlines: "New census milestone: Hispanics reach 50 million"; "U.S. Hispanic population tops 50 million" and one of our favorites "Los USA - Latino Populations Grow Faster with Wider Spread."

The New American Reality video by Univision speaks to the unique experience of being Latino in America today. Click here to watch it now!
