NEW YORK - Feb. 27, 2020 - PRLog -- The new LatinX MOOC highlights how over 32 million eligible voters will make the LatinX community the largest ethnic or racial voting bloc in the United States this year, and while there have always been political differences among the various groups that comprise the American LatinX community – the Trump administration's anti-immigration policies have accelerated the rise of a political unification and activism within LatinXs and between LatinX and other key racial, ethnic, gender and religious groups.

"A third of eligible voters will be nonwhite in 2020 and the changing racial and ethnic composition of the electorate likely has political implications in part because nonwhites have long been significantly more likely than whites to back Democratic candidates" – Pew Research Center

The free online course is available thru the MOOCs University ("MOOCs U") platform and explores how Trump is serving as the change agent that has accelerated a unification of minority groups that may had never found common ground in the pre-Trump era. The LatinX MOOC highlights a common ground that is further amplified when the politically-infused rhetoric impacts children:

"Trump's words, bullied kids, scarred schools. The president's rhetoric has changed the way hundreds of children are harassed in American classrooms" – The Washington Post

Three of the key learning outcomes of the new LatinX MOOC include: a better understanding of the massive economic importance of the LatinX community to the United States today and in the years to come; an actionable perspective on how Trump's short term politically-infused policies are creating previously unforeseen long term political alliances and coalition opportunities for LatinXs, and an overview of how the current administration's economic and social policies have made the pre-Trump far-fetched idea of an American conversion to a European style social democracy much more of a potential reality for USA LatinXs.

The online course leader, a Stanford & Harvard MBA graduate and author of one of the first self-help business books on "Latino Success" / "Exito Latino" (Simon & Schuster) in the USA, also examines the decisive role LatinX voters are already playing in the current presidential elections throughout the LatinX MOOC, and asks students to consider,

"IF, a recent Brookings Institute note shared how in American politics 'The Future is Female' and the latest Census numbers tell us that the future is also LatinX – THEN, How could the 2020 Democratic Vice Presidential Nominee not be a LatinX Female?" Augusto Failde (
