Al-muthafuckin- right. The Vota Vato voter guide is back with the vengeance of the 2012 Mayan prediction. And if you thought my ancestors were bullshittin’ when they said the world was coming to an end – you must not be watching the apocalypse unfold before our very eyes.
Ay, ay, ay! This election is reminiscent of the 2016 Presidential race. Liberals all in their feelings because all of the candidates are meh – yet they’re trying desperately to convince you that their horse is the one to place your bet on.
Meanwhile, Lefties in the hood are shrugging their shoulders ‘cause none of these candidates truly embody the progressive values we seek in our leaders.
It’s been a minute since we last hit you with that hot fire. To be honest, we’re glad because we, too, were fucking exhausted of putting out voter guides every month. But alas, we had a little break and
now we are back with the force of a thousand Chapulines Colorados!
Between now and June 2018, the board will be interviewing candidates. They have a search firm helping them, but you know Hood Digest wants to contribute too! We’ve prepared our own list of questions that we recommend asking the candidates vying for LAUSD Superintendent.
This Hood Digest endorsement goes to Wendy Carrillo. None of the other candidates are hustling harder.
Wendy has garnered some notable endorsements from the powerful Service Employees International Union (SEIU), labor icon Dolores Huerta, and the CA Assembly legislative women’s caucus.
By Elmer G. Roldan, @grand.supreme.chapin Are you feeling tired of elections? Well, don’t turn off your bullshit radar just yet!! For the next couple of months, some of us are gonna be seeing more glossy mailers and answering annoying calls telling you to vote for people you ain’t neva heard of! This coming June, voters…
More Latinos are running for this Congressional seat than attended Rubi’s Quinceañera. You’d think they were giving away free tamales in the House Of Representatives the way that so many of my gentes jumped in this race. A point on this crowded congressional competition: saying you will stand up to Donald Trump is easy! Calling out his cadre of racist buffoons is a nobrainer. Shit, Fox News and the Koch brothers are standing up to that mamon!
By Elmer G. Roldan, @grand.supreme.chapin On March 7 get out and vote. Don’t make excuses about you being too busy or feeling like your vote doesn’t matter. Don’t be a pendeja or pendejo… that’s pendejx for people in Boyle Heights. You’re entitled to a 2-hour lunch break. That’s 30 extra minutes than what you already…
By Elmer G. Roldan, @grand.supreme.chapin You already know there are too many damn initiatives on the ballot and you’re too damn busy to learn about them all. #HoodDigest got you! So, grab a lapiz, cafe, pan dulce, and brace yourself!
67% of us voted for Clinton, 29% for Trump. Yeah, 1/3 of us went with him. But, why?
Let’s start by explaining what it means to be Latino. Latino/Hispanic is an ethnicity, which creates a lot of confusion about our identity.
