Xicanosmosis, 1992: Oscar de la Hoya at the Olympics

Just a quick clipping from the August 2008 issue of Latina Magazine--proof positive that the cultural dynamics of xicanosmosis--the syncretic melding of Mexican and Unitedstatesian cultural miasmas and elixirs--is always on the march; some key semiotic interactions to note in the unattributed photo: the adidas logo, the "American" flag, the Mexican flag, and the Xicano boxer, who made 20th century boxing history.

ps: Is someone at Latina Magazine reading this blog?
