Daisy Hernandez (born May 23, 1975) is an American writer and editor. She coedited the feminist anthology Colonize This! Young Women of Color on Today's Feminism, which was published in 2002 by Seal Press, and has been cited by some scholars as a successor to the classic 1981 This Bridge Called My Back, an anthology that was also by women of color and which linked feminism, race, sexuality and class.
Hernandez was the editor of ColorLines magazine between 2008 and 2010, a publication composed of articles and essays about race and politics. On January 12, 2011, her commentary on the 2011 Arizona shooting was aired on NPR's All Things Considered and caused a controversy for its use of the word "gringo." The commentary was cited by conservatives as a reason to end government funding of public radio.
