This Cholo Goth Video Is So Gothtastic It Listens To The Cure In The Rain

YouTube / Pitchfork / Prayers

Your cholo goth faves, Prayers, released the video for their latest single, “Black Leather,” through Pitchfork on Friday and IT IS GLORIOUSLY GOTH. It even features Kat Von D! It’s more goth than a raven sitting on a skull reading Bolaño in the rain. It’s more goth than Siouxsie Sioux contemplating La Santa Muerte while listening to The Cure in a cemetery. It’s more goth than opening a mazapan and having it break in your hand while Morrissey plays on a loop through your brain.

Let’s zoom in for a closer look at the video’s gothiest moments:

1. Kat Von D Lookin’ Somber AF On A Balcony

3. These Abuelitas, Who Probably Know Something We Don’t

Those mantillas are hiding something far more sinister than just the fact that the cookie tin is full of sewing supplies.

4. This Man And His Snake

Nothing makes you want to chill in a catacomb like a migraine. Ergo, migraines are goth.

9. Her Bangs

The other guys are goth, but he’s the most goth.

ICE Raids Are Preventing Undocumented Teens From Going To School

ICE Raids Are Preventing Undocumented Teens From Going To School

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is getting so brazen in their raids that they are now detaining undocumented students on their way to school. Even worse, in addition to breaking up families, these detentions have been a blow to undocumented students’ overall school attendance.

According to their own policies, ICE doesn’t conduct raids at sensitive locations like schools, churches or hospitals, unless it’s an emergency. ThinkProgress, who first broke this troubling development, points out that this is simply not true, and this unwillingness to stick to their own rules is really messing with kids who are finding academic success.

“That’s a huge deal with students who have been doing really well in school, really improving, and now feel like they can’t come to school,” Rebecca Costas, an English Language Learner teacher at Myers Park High School in Charlotte,N.C., told ThinkProgress. “This has a lot of impact on student behavior. Their experiences in their native countries were bad enough, and the journey over was very traumatic. A lot of kids coming over here are clearly exhibiting signs of PTSD, depression, mental health issues — these current raids have just exacerbated that.”

In North Carolina, attendance has gone down by as much at 20 percent in certain areas directly because of these raids. A lot of these teens are being nabbed at the bus stop while they wait.
