One of the biggest national stories from the last couple of days was Latinos in Nevada and Florida coming out to vote early with a vengeance. That, apparently, was only the beginning. Students at Maryvale and North High Schools in Phoenix, Ariz., have walked out of class to canvass local neighborhoods to get out the vote against Donald Trump and Joe Arpaio, the Maricopa County Sheriff who has spent his entire political career violating the civil rights of Latinos in Arizona. (So much so that he was recently indicted for criminal contempt after refusing to follow the law.)
This is a developing story and we’ll be updating accordingly, but this is yet another example of Latinos flexing their might and letting our presence known.
Flying is an annoying process. First comes bag checks, then security takes pictures of your privates, then you stand in long lines, waiting for your seat to get called. And finally, you climb aboard only to find that the person next to you is a crying baby or someone so hopped up on Xanax they’re using your shoulder as a pillow. However, all of those things pale in comparison to what happened on a recent Mexican flight.
It was a Hollywood B-movie for passengers of Aeromexico’s flight out of Torreon, when they found themselves aboard an actual plane with an actual snake.
