Two of El Chapo’s Sons are Using Social Media to Show the World How Luxurious Their Lives Are

Notorious Mexican drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán has several children – 10 to be exact. Most of them remain under the radar but two of his sons, Jesús Alfredo Guzmán Salazar and Ivan Archivaldo Guzmán Salazar, have allegedly been bragging about their wealthy lifestyle on social media FOR YEARS. It’s difficult to prove whether the numerous social media pages belonging to the two Chapitos are real but one thing is clear: someone out there is posting some wild s***. Here’s what you can find:

Alfredo and Ivan Guzmán Salazar love showing off on social media.

Like, they really get off on showing off their wealth and social status.

And with their papi being El Chapo, of course you’ll find photos of drugs.

They also want you to know they have a shit load of cars.

So many cars that Alfredo has trouble leaving the house most morning. #eliteworldproblems

They’re also flushed with technology, yo.

Clearly life was good before their dad was arrested and escaped.

Their life was so good before their dad’s escape, they spent almost $15,000 pesos at a bar.

That’s about $800.

And they CONTINUE TO SHOW OFF even after their dad’s high-profile escape.

They’re probably thinking, “So, we just need to pixelate our faces, right? I mean, they won’t be able to tell it’s us.”

Not everyone’s face gets pixellated, though.

Yes, they even have several accounts since some have been taken down before.

They have no fear about showing where they are and what they are doing.

While papi is hiding out from authorities, Ivan took a mini vacay to L.A.

Nice shot of DTLA, bro.

And, of course, they have a private jet for those extra long trips.

I mean, how else would you be a jet-setter?

Ivan is so proud of his little gatillo that he wants the world to know.

There are also photos of a leopard and different puppies.

But the boys are still down to earth and choose to drink Tecate and Dos Equis.

That is some true national pride right there. #VivaMexico

And Alfredo is so much more humble since his father’s escape.

https://twitter.com/AlfreditoGuzma/status/649062625544810500

Wow. Touching.

Which is great because he has so much to be thankful for.

If You Ever Feel The Urge To Tell Someone To ‘Go Back’ Where They Came From, Just Don’t

If You Ever Feel The Urge To Tell Someone To ‘Go Back’ Where They Came From, Just Don’t

President Trump reached an all-time low when he tweeted that four Congresswomen of color should “go back” to the countries they came from. It is clear that he is not worried about facts and led by racism because of the four Congresswomen he spoke about, three were born in the U.S. and the other is a naturalized citizen. In response, people on social media are sharing their own stories of being told to “go back” to where they “came from.”

President Trump tweeted that certain Congresswomen need to go back to where they came from because they want more from U.S. leadership.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was born in New York, Rashida Tlaib was born in Michigan, and Ayanna Pressley was born in Illinois. Only Ilhan Omar was born outside of the U.S. in Somalia but became a citizen when she was a teenager. To tell four women of color to “go back” to where they came from is the lowest and most overused racist tropes in existence and Trump is leaning into it.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi fired back calling the tweet exactly what it is: racist.

Trump’s presidency has ignited an uptick in hate crimes in the country. Xenophobic rhetoric and dehumanizing words made against immigrants is part of why the crimes have increased. Another study showed that counties that hosted Trump rallies saw significant spikes in hate crimes shortly after the rallies.

In response, Twitter users are sharing their stories on how the post-Trump U.S. has seen more and more people brave enough to use the same rhetoric.

Gabe Ortíz is an avid tweeter and writer and his question drew several reactions from followers. The responses from people are very telling about who does and does not get asked the question. It has nothing to do with immigration and everything to do with skin color and race.

Twitter users had so many stories to share about the racist dog whistle of the “go back” comments against minorities.

All it takes is just speaking another language to get some people whipped up. However, if you speak another language, chances are you are smarter than most of the people telling you to go back where you came from. Nothing wrong with speaking another language.

People clearly remember a surge of these comments immediately after Trump was elected president.

It isn’t surprising for people under attack by the current administration. Trump’s use of his place of power to attack and belittle minorities has emboldened those who have ill will towards those minorities.

It is even more disheartening when grown people scream their ignorance at children.

There is nothing lower than trying to make children afraid of living their lives. There is no reason to go after children. None. However, we are watching an administration dehumanizing children by ripping them away from their parents are the border and keeping them in cages without basic necessities.

There are even people who like to use this language and don’t know enough to hate properly.

Puerto Rico is part of the U.S. Being born in Puerto Rico means you are born a citizen of the U.S. To tell someone to “go back” when they were born in Puerto Rico because you don’t want them in the U.S. is, well, uneducated.

These are the same people who think Native Americans are foreigners.

Native Americans are just that, native. They were here before colonizers came on the ships and forcibly took the land and killed the native population. You literally can’t tell native people to go back anywhere because you are on their land.

And, of course, there are the racist comments of telling Black people to go back to Africa.

Credit: @semperdiced / Twitter

Not to mention the fact that most Black people are descendants of slaves who were forcibly brought to the U.S., Africa is not a country. If you are going to be a racist xenophobe, you should at least do the work and specify the country. Otherwise, you are being lazy and showing your lack of knowledge. It only makes you look dumb.

Some people shared how being white and white passing spared them this hate.

Credit: @LoboLaurel1 / Twitter

Being a white-passing person of color has long been a shield that so many people have enjoyed. It is hard to see your fellow Latinos talked down to because of their skin tone when you both share a similar heritage.

Then some people shared how being an immigrant from a white country gives you a cloud of protection.

Being from Europe seems to be what these people want. Immigrants with melanin, talent, and legitimate reasons for fleeing for their lives just aren’t what they are looking for. It is truly a sharp departure from what this country was built on.

Facebook Wants To Add Latinas In Tech To Their Teams And Offer Them A Slice Of Their Big Salary Earning Pie

While creating an idyllic work atmosphere can seem nearly impossible, there’s no doubting that a diverse work environment can help push companies closer to achieving this. Time and time again, research has proven that diversity in the workplace is essential. Not only can having people from different backgrounds and walks of life drive creativity and productivity it can also foster education and empathy. One of the most influential companies in the world right now has recently, fortunately, decided to take a step back, survey its employee landscape and add diversity to it.

In the latest big move from social media giant, Facebook has announced its plans to diversify its existing workforce within the next five years.

On July 10th, the social media giant released its latest job numbers and explained where it hopes to see itself in the near future.

Twitter / @FBnewsroom

In its sixth-annual diversity report, Facebook disclosed that it has had little success hiring from what it refers to as “traditionally underrepresented groups.” Since 2014, the social media company has worked globally to hire more employees who are Black, Latino, Indigenous and Pacific Islanders as well as disabled employees and veterans. It has also focused on hiring more women around the world.

This year, Facebook claims that its workforce breaks down to  63.1% male and 36.9% female. Also, 44.2% of its employees are white. The remaining employee population amounts to 43% Asian, 5.2% Latinx and 3.8% Black. An added 3.1% of its employees report being from two or more backgrounds while 0.7% were marked down as “other” — mostly consisting of Indigenous people and Pacific Islanders.

However, it seems the company has its work cut out for themselves because they have only shown minor improvements in these categories in the past year.

Twitter / @flashrecruiter

“We’ve made some progress increasing the number of people from traditionally underrepresented groups employed at Facebook but we recognize that we need to do more,” Facebook admitted in its report.

This year’s stats find only a .6% increase in women employees over last year’s percentage. Senior leadership has also changed from 70% male to 67.4%. Additionally, its efforts to improve its racial diversity has also proved to be a slow process. Over year, it increased 1.6% in Asian employees, .3% in Latinx employees and .3% in Black employees. Facebook only increased their representation in their “other” and “two or more” categories by .1% each.

Though the numbers appear disheartening, Facebook is confident to expand upon what little progress they’ve achieved.

Twitter / @DigiCrimRMIT

In a Facebook blog post, the company states:

“Since 2014, we have increased the number of Black women at Facebook by 25X and the number of Black men by 10X. And importantly, even as we have grown, we have worked very hard on making Facebook a more welcoming, respectful workplace.”

While these numbers sound impressive, considering the small percentages their diversity breaks down to, it is still nowhere close to where a huge company like Facebook should be. Still, they have big goals for increasing these numbers — both globally and nationally — over the next five years.

Their blog post goes on to say:

“We envision a company wherein the next five years, at least 50% of our workforce will be women, people who are Black, Hispanic, Native American, Pacific Islanders, people with two or more ethnicities, people with disabilities, and veterans. In doing this, we aim to double our number of women globally and Black and Hispanic employees in the US. It will be a company that reflects and better serves the people on our platforms, services, and products. It will be a more welcoming community advancing our mission and living up to the responsibility that comes with it.”

Though this is an ambitious push for more company diversity, some critics point out that Facebook has, so far, failed Black and Latinx women.

Twitter / @jguynn

As a technology journalist for USA Today, Jessica Guynn covered this failure last year when Facebook released its fifth-yearly diversity report.

In her piece, she reported:

“The sharpest deficits in Silicon Valley are African-American and Hispanic women, who make up 1 percent or fewer of workers, while across other industries they are represented at much higher rates consistent with their proportion of the overall U.S. population.”

Guynn goes on to point out the lack of intersectionality in diversity hiring:

“Allison Scott, chief of research at the Kapor Center, says the diversity conversation in Silicon Valley mostly focuses on race and ethnicity or gender, not both. And efforts made by tech companies to close the gender gap have boosted the fortunes of white women while hobbling progress for women of color.”

Failure to recognize that marginalized people can also have privilege has benefited white women in diversity hiring. Also, not seeing that a marginalized person can occupy more than one category has failed Black women and women of color as well as female veterans and disabled women.

Though their slow growth can be discouraging, it’s a start. More companies need to embrace a more diversified workforce that reflects the true dynamics of our society. Until that is achieved, these organizations will miss out on amazing employees simply because of outdated hiring processes.
