THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: ALVARO HUERTA WHEN HE WAS MEXICAN AND POOR, SAL BALDENEGRO ON HATING PEOPLE WITH OPPOSITE VIEWS, PASO DEL NORTE WITH LOS POCHOS, PEPE SERNA ON SCARFACE, AND TRUMP THE BULLY.
Welcome to another week of Latinopia! Our blogger Dr. Alvaro Huerta’s Fierce Politics recalls when as a youth he discovered that he was Mexican and poor–something with which many of us can identify. Also this week, Sal Baldengro weighs in on how whether conservative or progressive, somehow current politics seem to allow for a lot of hating. Sal finds hope in a current candidate for President, Jill Stein. In our videos this week, we visit with the conjunto group Los Pochos and their rendering of the classic nortena ballad, Paso Del Norte. Also this week, acclaimed actor of stage and screen Pepe Serna, recalls his role in the Al Pachino film, Scarface. Check out Pepe’s revelatory recollections. And of course no week would be complete without a Serg Hernández cartoon, this one on Trump the Bully.
Hey, enjoy your week on Latinopia!
