Things Non-POC Did This Week That Are Just Like… Like Wow

Listen, we know that the concepts of failure and oddities do not know race. People of all ethnicities and colors have experienced both. Still, we are acutely aware of the fact that certain groups have a tendency to confuse us a little more than others.

This week in the oddest things Non-POC are doing takes us to the streets of New York, kitchen appliances, and predictably, FOX News.

They include:

The people paying this woman $400 for hats made from garbage and glue.

One man’s trash has proven to be this woman’s empire.

Debra Rapoport, 73 of New York, is a fashion designer who stalks the streets of her hometown and collects trash. She then refurbishes her stockpile into colorful (whacky) purses. Then she sells them. For $450 a pop. Highlight: her hats are constructed from trash direct from the streets and people pay hundreds of dollars for them.

Now, we’re definitely never going to knock recycled goods. With recycling acting as the top action we cane take to improve both the environment and economy while preventing waste from polluting our air and oceans. Still, the idea of people actually paying for hats from trash direct from the streets of New York (some of the dirtiest around) while slapping it together with the $2 Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue seen in the video is just– it’s–

In a New York Post video interview with Rapoport, the artist says “Recycled materials speak to me. It’s like they say, ‘Give me a second life!’” This just after plucking a cast away phone cord from a garbage dump and tossing it around her neck.

Note: According to The Post, Rapoport’s work has reappeared in museums around the world and fans call her “Gifted and Thrifted.”

Beto O’Rourke standing on countertops without getting a chancla.

If Beto O’Rourke doesn’t win the 2020 presidential election he might have a shot in “Coyote Ugly 2.” This week O’Rourke’s penchant for hopping up on a countertop to address crowds in the ramp up to his presidential campaign has garnered quiet a few opinions.

Those amused by O’Rourke’s countertop manners have contributed to an Instagram page called @betooncounters and the hashtag @BetoOnCounters.

We don’t know about you, but we for SURE flinched when we saw him jump on a counter the first time. You better believe we fully expected a report on an abuela to swipe at him with a chancla and yell him to “siéntate!”

A Woman Said She Wants Trump To Be The Dictator Of The U.S. And No Pos Wow

Showtime’s “The Circus” takes audiences behind the scenes of the most incredible moments in U.S. politics. They covered the 2016 campaign and viewers felt like they were looking behind the curtain to see the true nature of American politics and some moves made by politicians away from the public gaze. However, the latest episode has some Americans terrified about the fate of the country. A woman takes the stage at an event hosted by Steve Bannon and calls for a Trump dictatorship.

“Never in my life did I think I would like to see a dictator,” the woman told the crowd. “But if there’s going to be one, I want it to be Trump.”
There is so much to unpack in that comment and, understandably, people who have seen this clip are startled. Not only does the woman claim that she never thought she would agree with a dictatorship crushing the U.S., she fully supports the idea of Trump single-handedly running the nation.

When your mom says you’re not allowed to eat more pan dulce.

Featuring: @adi_lene02

Don’t get between a Latina and her pan dulce. And speaking of pan dulce, have you tried pan dulce and ice cream together? If you haven’t, be sure to hit up Horchatería in L.A. It’s actually mind blowing.

Si saben como me pongo, ¿pa qué me invitan?

Featuring: @sallypea

This little dude has moves that can only be truly appreciated at quinceaneras and bautizos. He doesn’t follow the dance that every other kid is doing. He follows the beat of his own drum.

A la Junaga.

Featuring: @geraldalocks

We knew this was going to give La Caída de Edgar a run for his money. But we have to admit that right before the fall, this was probably some of the best moves we’ve seen since JuanGa days — actually including the fall.

No, we’re not getting a pet.

Featuring: @ccdelcid

A tale as old as time: Latinos parents will say that they don’t want any pets in the house but the moment you adopt one, they immediately fall in love with it and the pet instantly becomes the favorite child. Spoiler alert: Latino dads are actually soft AF on the inside.

Umm… my elote looks a little bit like something else.

When you’ve been celibate for a long time and everything around you starts looking like something else. In case you’re in the mood, here are some Latino songs about food that are actually about sexy time.

We all have that one tía.

Featuring: @jasmincausorfilms

I don’t care how much the dress cost. I don’t care if we have guests around. If there’s cake around you best believe someone’s getting their face smashed into it. Also, shoutout to this person because you look like the life of every party and deserve an invitation to every party.

Let’s get avo-control.

When she tells you she likes musicians.

Featuring: @jicaaa

Not everybody was born musically talented, but just how the saying goes: fake it till you make it. Even if it means taking a pozole cucharón and using it as your instrument.

Tell me what that mouth do.

Featuring: @lucy24garcia

What they don’t tell you is that taking Jell-O shots is actually harder than taking regular shots. Speaking of shots, if you want a shot glass set that speaks to who you are, be sure to get this season’s Barrio Box which includes these shot glasses and many other goodies.

People for the ethical treatment of pasteles.

Featuring: @priscigl

I think it’s a fact that cake has never actually been eaten at Latino parties. RIP all of the fallen cakes. Y’all were beautiful and I’m sure delicious and I’m so sorry my people have been treating you this way.

Who taught Slender Man how to dance corridos?

Featuring: @roberto_valadez_97

This video is both creepy and funny and all I can picture is what other people at the store were thinking. Keep it up, Slender Man, dance to whatever music your heart desires.

I can already see the chancla flying.

Featuring: @yamilleteflores

Ouch! And I’m not talking about the wall. You know someone got a chanclazo after this video was taken. We cannot confirm nor deny that the kid is okay.

Why did you do this, Sofia??

Featuring: @kristalcastles

Honestly, Sofia was just looking out for y’all. She’s the true protector of the house. The smile at the end has me dying. If you want to reward your pooch with a poncho, click here.
