THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: BURUNDANGA BORICUA DEL ZOCOTROCO COMENTA SOBRE “OMAROSA,” DIANE RODRIGUEZ ON TERMINATOR 2, JUAN GONZALEZ ON BUILDING THE WALL AND CIHUATL SONG “TEZCATLIPOCATL.”
Hey, hey my Latinopian addicts! This week José Umpierre returns with Burundanga Boricua, this week looking at how the Omarosa scandal improbably impacts Puerto Rico’s recent crisis. According to Omarosa, in her book , Unhinged, John Kelly and the President of the United States instead of reaching out to the Puerto Rica people, endeavored to take advantage of the aftermath of Hurricane Maria for their own political purposes. Nothing surprises us.
Also this week, acclaimed actress, playwright and stage director Diane Rodríguez recalls how she got a key role in the landmark film Terminator Two and how her role kept evolving. Check out this fascinating narrative.
Juan González, host of Democracy Now, analyzes why Donald Trump’s attempt to “build the wall’ is doomed to failure simply by statistical and demographic dynamics. Check out this reasoned conversation.
And last but not least, check out the musical group Cihuatl Song as they perform their voice collaboration, “Tezcatlipocatl.”
Enjoy your week on Latinopia and be sure to spread the word about the video “Vote for Hope Now.”
