GENERAL ELECTIONS NOV. 6th!
Today I spoke to a first generation Mexican American guy named Hugo(If u see this thank u for the convo!), asked him if he was going to vote. He said “probably not” I asked why of course!! His answer because he thinks nothing is wrong with our country.....he doesn’t watch the news and he thinks what trump says is kinda true, because if you work hard and you don’t ask for anything you’ll be fine. I was the one that asked what generation he was, & also asked him if he didn’t think his parents hard work and sacrifice to be here meant anything to him, he then started thinking about it a little. I also told him about commercials that my friend @nessthemess06
made me aware of that they play in other states <[that aren’t so progressive] about how they portray latinos to be ALL criminals & rapist for political campaigns. He responded that he didn’t live in other states so he didn’t care...If you are a Latino you should care, if you are not rich you should care, if you grew up in California, I’m sure you have seen many hard working latinos. To say they are lazy hurts me, because I’ve seen many working their butts off for their families. I will not have my family or latinos brothers/sisters having their name smeared in a negative light, when I know how great they are and I am who I am because each one has inspired me to be better. Having this conversation with this gentleman made me realize just how small & powerless our government makes us feel. Please don’t buy into that, in numbers we can accomplish great things!!! Let’s take pride as latinos, blacks, whites, asians let’s show the U.S. how we do it out here in CALIFORNIA w/LOVE & hard work! #VOTE #VOTE #goodcitizen @gavinnewsom #diversity #freedom #unitedwestand #noracism #november6 #generalelection
