THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY WITH ALEJANDRO MOLINA’S LOVE POEM “SAN VALENTÍN,” AND SAL BALDENEGRO ON “BRING BACK DECENCY,” JOSÉ UMPIERRE ON “LLUEVE Y NO ESCAMPA,” JUAN FELÍPE HERRERA ON “HOW TO BECOME A WARRIOR FOR THE AZTLAN LIBERATION ARMY” AND ARNIE AND PORFI ON VALENTINE DAY.
This week we celebrate Valentine’s Day with a perennial favorite, Alejandro Molina’s hilarious take on a Spanglish bilingual Valentine Day’s love poem. Don’t miss this one, it’s really funny. On a more serious note, Sal Baldenegro examines the of the Trump presidency and calls for all Americans to organize to regain decency in our politics. As Sal puts it this is not a partisan or political matter. And, while they didn’t purposefully align their blogs, José Umpierre, El Zocotroco, decries the Trump administration accusing Puerto Ricans of corruption while the White House is mired in it. José’s banner, “Llueve y no escampa,” means “It continues to rain with no let up,” referring to the Trump administration’s treatment of Puerto Rico and its people. And this week poet Juan Felípe Herrera gives us instructions on “How to be a Warrior for the Aztlán Liberation Army.” And lastly, don’t miss cartoonist Sergio Hernández’s Arnie and Porfi take on Valentine’s Day.
Enjoy your week on Latinopia!
