We adore young people that honor their elders by showing them love, advocating for their lives, and more importantly helping them with their hustle. That’s exactly what we are seeing out of Fresno today with a young man asking people to support his favorite street vendor and his bread.
Fresno resident Javier Amaro is paying it forward by giving a local Mexican bread vendor a huge shout out.
Amaro, a bodybuilding enthusiast, posted on his social media platforms that local residents should purchase Mexican bread from this vendor. Not only does Amaro say they’re delicious but they are incredibly inexpensive.
“FRESNO, CA AREA!! this older man sells really good Mexican bread they are $1 a bag, I purchased $15 to help him, shows me a lot that even if you are older and not that fit or healthy to work, when you enjoy doing something that you love to do, age or time doesn’t matter. PLEASE help him out he is located in 2034 N. ANGUS or give him a call 559-515-1271”
The post, which went live on Facebook on June 4, has been shared thousands of times.
Does this vendor know his phone number is floating around the internet? We’re certain his phone is blowing up nonstop. Who can resist $1 pan dulces?
Fans are showing support for the elderly gentlemen and those who have tried his goods are sending their praise.
“We always brought from him when we lived on Brown Ave., ” Angie G. Aguilar wrote on Facebook. “Sweetest man and his pan is really good! I’ll call him for sure. And share your post.”
@_lizzylizz wrote, “Dude I always use to buy bread off of him really nice sweet guy and the bread is definitely worth it.”
This is not the first time someone has posted a message in order to give their favorite vendor much-needed business.
Last year, a then 18-year-old Jacqueline “Jackie” Garza tweeted that her father’s bakery would close due to lack of business. So, she asked people to come and help, and they did. Thanks to her social media outreach, the panaderia was able to stay in business.
Turns out that ICE Bae, the viral sensation who works as a Border Patrol guard, is actually a registered Democrat.
The viral Internet sensation known as #IceBae is back in the news.
Kiara Cervantes, 26, identified herself Sunday on Twitter as the Internet sensation who was snapped during Vice President Mike Pence’s recent visit to a border detention center.
She went viral on social media this week for both her beauty and as a Latina working for Border Patrol.
People can’t stop talking about the fact that Cervantes happens to be a Democrat.
Well, it turns out that the Latina Border Patrol guard continues to shock people. According to a report by the New York Post, she’s also a registered democrat.
Though, according to voter registration records she didn’t vote in the 2016 presidential election. She last exercised her right to vote in March 2014.
Regardless of her political views, people from all sides have been coming for #IceBae.
People from both the liberal and conservative side have come for her with hate, support, and, of course, plenty of thirsty comments.
One Twitter user just couldn’t understand how a person that believes in Democratic values could take a job like this.
And she wasn’t alone. Many on Twitter expressed shock that a Democrat, a Latina one no less, would be willing to take a job that involves separating families and locking children in cages.
In fact, she has gotten a lot of hate.
Cervantes fired back Sunday at one social media user who tweeted that her family will disown her and “shame on any Hispanic working for ICE or anything of that nature.”
“I think that’s really rude and naive of you to say,” she tweeted. “You have no idea who my parents are and no idea what goes into my job on a daily basis… before speaking on something you know nothing about…. DONT. Regardless I’m blessed and thankful for the career I have.”
It seems the entire Latina community has cast her out.
Many called were a traitor and said they she has betrayed her own community.
Though some questioned whether it was actually racist to think a Latina should have specific political views.
What do you think?
How do you feel about #IceBae? Do you think she’s just a Latina doing her job? Or are you upset that a woman of color would take a job that involves the widespread abuse of members of our community?
While the rest of society is tapping into how nature is a significant signaler to our emotional and spiritual needs, Latinos grew up finding meaning in every change in the wind, and every dream. We’re superstitious AF, but we’re also highly in tune with nature.
We’re also chugging soda and eating Goya beans from a can because it’s 2019 and we have full-time jobs and three other gigs to get to. Whatever you have on your plate today, these zodiac-aligned sodas are destined to be more effective for you, hijo de las estrellas.

Honey, the arrangement of the stars this summer is signaling you to stay off the ‘gram. Get away from social media and get out of your head. There’s nothing like a sweet, tropical Jupiña to take with you to the beach or mountains.

Taurus’s are often misunderstood as lazy, but the fact is that you are more in touch with your self and your needs than any other sign. You’re free from the shame of indulging as an act of self-love. So when you have a Malta, you definitely add condensed milk to it to maximize the effects of every self-treat. Plus, it reminds you of drinking Malta as a niño and feeling like you could kick your feet up with the beer-drinking adults.

You’re represented by celestial twins–signifying a range of meanings, primarily to represent your many interests. The story goes that the goddess had so many passions, she doubled herself to get it all done. Cuba’s Iron Beer hasn’t decided whether it’s root beer or cream soda, and that’s because, like you, it can be both.

Ooh, Libra, your summer is set to look very physically (read: so much sex) active. You always have many people vying for your attention, but as you work on building trust with your chosen partner, you’re going to need to hydrate. Materva is brewed with mate leaves, giving you a bit of caffeine (alongside 40 grams of sugar, but who’s counting) to fuel your love life.

Like Mexican Coke, you, scorpion, have a cult following. But this month isn’t about what other people think of you. No matter the expectations of you, it’s time to turn inward and go back to old wounds that cause all the classic drama in your life. Don’t worry, when you let it go, you’ll still be a classic inside and out.

Fellow sea goats–it has been un mes tan pesado. No te preocupes–instead of trying to find out where you fit, it’s time to realize you belong everywhere in this world. You’re not just a Mundet, you’re an elusive green apple cider. Embrace your individuality. It will set you free.
