Why Pitbull Is Inspiring AF: ” “I Don’t ‘Leverage’ The Latin Community, I Live It.”

Yesterday, Armando Perez (also known as Pitbull) spoke at the 3rd annual eMerge Americas tech conference in Miami Beach, Fla. Every year, he blesses the entrepreneurship-based conference with his illustrious presence, dropping knowledge about being a Latino in the music biz, remaining true to his identity, and trying not to embarrass abuela along the way.

Here are 10 quotes to live by:

1. “I don’t ‘leverage’ the Latin community, I live it.”

“I just show the world how special we really are.”

These are all facts.

2. “Not everyone is a visionary.”

That’s his mantra when ideas get shut down in the boardroom. It’s not him, it’s you. ?

3. “Music talks to everyone.”

Music is basically tu tia chismosa in that way.

4. “You also want to be able to control your own destiny in one way or another.”

When choosing a project, it’s all about creative expression > money. Do you, boo boo.

5. “Like anything in life, it’s not about making it, it’s about maintaining it.”

Maintenance is key, whether it comes to business or a burrito belly.

6. “When it comes to social media, learn something new every day.”

This is how Pit’s able to come up with gems like this.

7. “I don’t wanna be part of a billion-dollar company if I’m going to have a trillion-dollar headache.”

Basically, the people you surround yourself with are everything.

8. “It’s not about the money, it’s about the journey.”

In reference to choosing offers for new projects.

And every journey should feature a Pitbull playlist.

9. “Ironically, the plan never plans out.”

Translation: Be ready for anything. *stuffs more snacks in pocket*

10. And never forget the wisest words of all:

A Florida Doctor Is Being Charged with a Hate Crime After Assaulting a Latino Man at a Supermarket

A Florida Doctor Is Being Charged with a Hate Crime After Assaulting a Latino Man at a Supermarket

It’s an unfortunate reality that Latinos face immense amounts of racism in America. Case in point: a Florida doctor is facing hate crime charges after assaulting a Latino man at a supermarket.

According to police, a 58-year-old woman followed a Latino man out to the parking lot, keyed his car, smashed his phone, and punched him–all the while hurling racially-charged insults at him.

The altercation happened on Jan. 20th at a Publix supermarket in Hialeah, Florida–a town with a large Latino population. It all started when the victim, an unnamed Latino man, asked Dr. Jennifer Susan Wright to maintain social distancing in Spanish. After she ignored him, the man repeated the question in English.

It was at this point that Dr. Wright, who is an anesthesiologist at Mount Sinai Medical Center, became incensed and began muttering curse words under her breath. After the man left the grocery store, Dr. Wright followed him out to the parking lot.

She began to verbally berate him, calling him a “spic” and telling him “we should have gotten rid of you when we could.”

According to the police report, she also said: “This is not going to be Biden’s America, this is my America.” The woman then took her keys out an began to “stab the victim’s vehicle with her keys” while telling him to “go back to his country”.

The man took out his phone to call 911 and the woman allegedly punched him, causing him to drop his phone. When he bent over to pick his phone up, she allegedly kicked him and tried to stomp on his phone.

The woman fled before the police came, but she was arrested on Feb 12th at her home in Miami Springs.

The woman was initially charged with tampering with a victim, criminal mischief and battery with prejudice. The “hate crime” charge was later added, elevating the crime to a felony.

According to reports, Wright posted her $1000 bail and is now awaiting trial. Mount Sinai Medical Center released a statement saying that Dr. Wright is “no longer responsible for patient care” after assaulting a Latino man.

According to the Miami Herald, neighbors know Dr. Jennifer Wright as an ardent Trump supporter. Her social media pages are riddled with far-right, Pro-Trump memes and photos of her posing in a MAGA hat. She even uploaded a post that read: “It’s Okay To Be White.”

We can all agree that it’s “okay” to be white. It’s okay to be any race. We cannot, however, all agree that it’s okay to be a violent, racist bigot. We hope the victim has recovered and we hope Jennifer Wright will face justice.
