If you’re Latino, you were probably Catholic at some point in your life. That’s just the way it is. Even as you try to move past it, there are still some clear signs that you grew up Catholic. Here are the most obvious ones…
You don’t mind walking around with ash on your face.
Like something out of a movie, Dolores Huerta and Rosario Dawson are airing out their beef for the world to see. Dawson, who played Huerta in the 2014 Cesar Chavez biopic, went at the civil rights activist after Huerta’s take down of Bernie Sanders and his record. Clearly, the real Huerta and pretend Huerta agree helping the Latino community is super important, but they just can’t agree on how.
It all started, when Huerta wrote a Medium piece on Bernie Sanders’s immigration record.
“If you’ve been following the Democratic primary, you may have noticed that Bernie Sanders has positioned himself as a champion of the immigrant community,” reads the opening paragraph of Huerta’s op-ed. “From the letter he sent to Barack Obama last week, to the work he, his campaign, and surrogates have done attacking other candidates’ positions, you would think that he has been a lifelong champion on issues that matter to Latinos and immigrants. But here’s the truth: Candidate Bernie Sanders, advocate for immigrants, is not the same as Senator Bernie Sanders.”
Huerta did not hold back on her criticism of Sanders…like, at all.
Although Dawson started by thanking the civil rights pioneer for her diligent work helping Latinos, the pleasantries didn’t last:
“This is exactly why your article on Bernie Sanders came as such a surprise to me,” Dawson wrote. “That the same woman who has made it her life’s mission to speak the truth and shed light on corruption, lies, and false narratives created by the corporate elite and special interest groups, would now suddenly create a narrative that distorts facts and misguides American voters.”
“3. You mention that Bernie did not sign Harry Reid’s letter to president Obama in 2011:
— The letter was written and issued by 22 Senate Democrats. It was not presented to the entire Senate for signature, nor to Bernie Sanders (an independent at the time), and was signed by only a small fraction of the Democratic Party.
— Hillary Clinton did not respond to the letter sent to Obama. She did not denounce the deportations at that time, which makes the whole mention of the letter unreasonable.”
She even included handy tables comparing the two candidates side by side. One on positions…
