If You Were Born Between 1985 And 1995 This Group Was Probably Your First Crush

Stop what you’re doing! It’s time we talk about Garibaldi, why we love them, why we miss them, and why they need to make a comeback already!

Rumor has it that the late ’80s/early ’90s Mexican group is planning a reunion. In fact, Sergio Mayer, an original member of Garibaldi, is in talks with his colleagues – Patricia Manterola, Charly Lopez, Pilar Montenegro, Xavier Ortiz, Luisa Fernanda Lozano, Victor Noriega and Katia Llanos – for a potential reunion tour, according to TVyNovelas.

Here are all the reasons we need the Garibaldi reunion to happen ASAP.

1. Oily chests. Yes, we said it.

Sergio, Charly, Xavier and Victor were our first real man crushes.

2. These moves:

“Everybody loves banana!”

3. These women were “it girls” before “it girls” were even a thing.

These outfits! And you know that you would low-key imitate them with your primas.

4. Two Words: Pilar Montenegro

Can I please have this outfit, too?

5. They were the only reason you watched “Siempre en Domingo.”

And you’d watch all three hours of the show with abuelita just to catch them on TV.

6. This song was always in your head.


“Tengo el alma en pedazos, ya no aguanto esta pena. Tanto tiempo sin verte, es como una condena!”

7. They got the crowd HYPED.

…every damn time!

8. They seriously need to come back because we miss the glittery outfits.

***shimmy, shimmy, shimmy***

9. And these next-level ruffles!

Please, come back already! Se lo suplico!

10. Because our Christmas hasn’t been the same since their “Popurri Navideño.”


This was on repeat all season long! Just kidding, it was on repeat all year long!!!

11. And because we’re not the only ones feeling this way!


Feels.

Hey, Mike Pence! This Is #ThatMexicanThing You Should Pay More Attention To

things that matter

Hey, Mike Pence! This Is #ThatMexicanThing You Should Pay More Attention To

PBS NewsHour / YouTube

Donald Trump’s running mate Mike Pence metio la pata last night during the vice presidential debate. No, we aren’t talking about how he lied and denied all the questionable things that Trump has said about women, Latinos, African-Americans, et al. Toward the end of the debate, Pence made the now-infamous gaffe of telling Tim Kaine that he “whipped out that Mexican thing again” when mentioning Trump’s first speech when he called Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals. Of course, Twitter responded with a clapback hashtag.

Here is the moment Mike Pence inadvertently created #ThatMexicanThing.


Pence: “Senator, you whipped out that Mexican thing again.”

America: “I’m sorry…what?”

So, immediately, folks took to Twitter to share stories of what #ThatMexicanThing really is and made sure the world knew who he was running with.


Like, are Trump and Pence really that obsessed with us that they can’t stop talking about us?

Some people are letting Pence know that #ThatMexicanThing means paying your fair share of taxes.

Let’s admit it. Trump has no ground to stand on there.

There is also the little thing called education.

Voto Latino took the social media reaction and created a website dedicated strictly to voting: thatmexicanthing.org.

Just for the record, Mexicans are truly welcoming and helpful people.


^^This is everything! ❤️

Mexican parents, and in fact most immigrant and minority parents, will always put their child’s education first.

Seriously. What is so bad about #ThatMexicanThing, Mr. Pence?

There were some heartbreaking and empowering stories of how hard people are willing to work.


Raise your hand if your immigrant grandparent struggled and worked hard to give you what you have now. ?????

Some people dropped historical knowledge on people.

D R A G  H I M!

This person even shared a photo of their father’s military grave.


See. It seems that #ThatMexicanThing includes fighting for your freedom to speak negatively about those who fought for you. ?☕️?

There were also some people who shared stories of super hard working single mothers who refused to use government assistance.

There was some praise for Pence finally saying the line that would strengthen Mexicans, and Latinos, into an unstoppable force.

Even non-Latinos joined in to show support against Pence’s statement.

It is becoming more and more important that we come together to vote for our familia and raza.


Our parents did not work this hard to get this far for a president to talk down to them and make them feel worthless. VOTE!
