Baby Sis Roasts Her Hermana At Her Quinceñera In This All-Too-Relatable Stand-Up

No one will ride for you — or roast you — like your sibling. This older hermana learned that during her quinceñera, where her baby sis performed a stand-up and made her the butt of every joke.

Natasha may have been the star of the evening during her quince in San Jose, Calif. back in 2016, but a video making the rounds on the Internet shows that her little sis Aneesha is the one who stole the show. While Natasha sat in her white, puffy gown and tiara, baby sis, then 11, spit  wisecracks on a mic right beside her.

“Her closet, it’s as if you have just entered Nordstrom. She has all the new clothes. All her clothes are in season. All her clothes are sparkly, glittery, the prettiest things you’ve ever seen. You enter mine, and it’s like a goodwill,” Aneesha said as the room of family and friends erupted in laughter.

If you’re a younger sibling, you know the pain of watching the eldest in the family get new garbs while you’re tossed the stretched-out, out-of-season clothing and sneakers they need to get rid of to make space for their fresh new wardrobe.

“Every single piece of clothing that I have, whether it’s a pair of pants, whether it’s a T-shirt, whether it’s underwear – it has been worn by this girl,” Aneesha said, delivering each joke with on-point comedic timing.

While the sisters, who are Nicaraguan-Indian, are just three years apart, Aneesha frustratingly quipped that she has to wait seven years to wear her older sister’s clothes because she’s so much taller than her.

“Have you seen her height,” Aneesha asked. “She’s like that character from ‘Jack And The Beanstalk’… not the giant, the beanstalk,” she joked, as her sister, embarrassed, threw her head in her hands.

Then, Aneesha ended her nearly-four-minute performance with a banger: “You don’t need to come to my quinceañera. You already know what I’m gonna wear,” she said hilariously.

According to the girls’ dad, Rajiv, he and Aneesha worked on the jokes together, but ultimately the young jokester was the real brain and talent.

Aneesha, who carried the crowd effortlessly with the flow of her family-friendly quips, didn’t even rehearse before taking the stage.

“She is a natural, she is a savage, she is fun to be around,” Rajiv said. “She insults people without hurting them. I bear the brunt of most of her jokes!”

California Man Shoots Baby Of Woman Who Rejected Him In The Head

Fresno Police Department

On Saturday, a man allegedly shot a 10-month-old baby in the head after the child’s mom rejected him at a party in Fresno, Calif.

According to the Fresno Police Department, Marcos Antonio Echartea, 23, fanatically followed Deziree Menagh, 18, at a party. 

The two had met a week prior, and when he saw her at the gathering, he hounded her every move. Echartea turned down the man’s advances, resisting him when he tried to force her on his lap and leaving the party early to get away from him.

“It was very apparent that he wanted a relationship with her,” Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said at a news conference Sunday, according to BuzzFeed News.

Menagh left the party with her daughter in the car of a male friend. As the three of them drove off, they stopped while making a U-turn about a block away, when Echartea appeared walking toward them. Near the car, the man reportedly fired three shots into the driver’s side window. The blasts hit Fayth in the side of her head as she sat on her mother’s lap in the passenger seat.

“We have every reason to believe that Marcus knew that baby Fayth was in that vehicle when he fired three rounds into that vehicle,” Dyer said.

The driver rushed to the hospital and called the police. On the phone, a dispatcher informed him there were officers nearby who could care for the baby as they waited for an ambulance.

The baby remains in the hospital, where she is in critical condition after doctors pulled bullet fragments from her head.

“We are hoping and praying that baby Fayth is able to survive this injury, as well as make a full recovery,” Dyer said. “I know the parents are broken. They’re hurting.”

Echartea, who was arrested at his house and charged with three counts of attempted murder, is also a suspect in a similar child shooting “over a female.” On the night of May 27, the man visited the home of his ex-girlfriend’s current boyfriend and fired his gun numerous times inside. During his attack, he almost hit a one-year-old baby. 

“It’s very apparent that Marcos Echartea has no regard for human life, even a baby,” Dyer said.

The man is currently facing additional felony counts, including assault with a deadly weapon, related to the previous shooting as well.

This Latina Added Voting Registration to Her Quinceañera to Help Encourage Latinx Voting

NBCNews.com

If you’re a Latina, you probably spent years dreaming of your quinceañera. Questions of the song you’ll come out to, what your dress will look like, and who will escort you into womanhood dance around so many of our heads until the moment we hit the actual dance floor.

Chances are, however, you never considered how to incorporate the current political sphere, freedom and voting rights to your big day.

Quinceañera Aleida Ramos decided to have an innovative addition to her recent quince: voter registration.

On the Houstonian’s big day, she invited Jolt Initiative — the Latinx Youth Advocacy group. Their goal is to register as many Latinx voters as possible. For Ramos’ party, the organization set up Poder Quince booths to assist guests with voter registration.

In between thanking friends and family and celebrating her quince, Ramos encouraged guests to visit the Poder Quince booths. Her father, Marco Ramos, Jr, joined in on urging guests to register to vote. The pair focused on the impact that the Latinx vote can make in the 2020 election and elections to come.

Community was a big focus of this push. Ramos’ motivation for inviting Jolt Initiative was to pay back the community that has supported her and invested in her these past 15 years. Undoubtedly, even this small gesture can have huge outcomes.

“Our vote ensures we continue to protect our community and those who matter to us most,” the quinceañera told her party goers.

With Poder Quince, Jolt has made it their goal to reach potential Latinx voters through quinceañeras.

The Texas-based advocacy group started their Poder Quince initiative in May of 2019. Thanks to the huge Latinx population, quinceañeras have become mainstream in the Lone Star State. By Jolt’s estimation, around 50,000 quinces are held each year.

With this in mind, these quinceañeras prove to be an untapped resource to connect with Latinx voters. Jolt — which is a non-profit association — recognizes that in order to mobilize a community, we need to be part of the community. Their presence at quinceañeras helps accomplish this.

Ramos’ quince is the first in Harris County to invite Jolt Initiative.

Harris County — which includes the city of Houston — has the second largest Latinx population in the country. At over 2 Million, it’s second only to Los Angels’ nearly 5 Million Latinx population.

Harris County set a new historic turn out record during the 2018 elections — no doubt helped by their large Latinx and Millennial vote. This turnout officially changed the county blue in the traditionally red state.

According to Jolt’s spokesman, Antonio Arellano, Texas is a crucial focus for voter turn out.

As he shared with NBC News, “That’s why we are so focused on energizing the Latino vote in Houston. The Latino vote lives here, and we have to mobilize them and there is so much riding on them.”

While Ramos is still too young to vote, she was intrigued by the other quinceañeras who welcomed Jolt to their celebrations.

Ramos shared with NBC News, “I liked their stories and what they said about everything. I wanted to do something that would help us — trying to make a difference in things for our community. It inspired me.”

Her father — who doesn’t consider himself political — has voted in every election since he was 18. His example also heavily influenced Ramos’ decision to incorporate Jolt into her quince.

Ramos shared with NBC News the wisdom that her dad has passed on to her.

“My dad tells me I have to be educated to vote and have to know what I’m voting for and about the person,” she explained. “When people ask you why you are for that person, you don’t stutter. You know because you are educated.”

Jolt also provided a photo booth for the quinceañera and her guests.

NBC News

Guests of Ramos’ quince reported that they enjoyed the presence of Jolt at the celebration. Younger guests had fun with the props and Instagram-able opportunities. Similarly, voting-aged guests appreciated the chance to register and update their personal information.

Ultimately, it was a quince that her guests won’t soon forget. Altogether, it might make a difference in Ramos’ community and ultimately our own.
