“A million hands can build a wall, a million hands can bring it down.”


Two dozen of the biggest names in music — including Jennifer Lopez, Prince Royce And Selena Gomez — have come together to pay tribute to the victims of the Orlando massacre in a song titled “Hands.” The song speaks about the power each individual holds — the power to build or to destroy. The song, which was created with support from GLAAD, also features vocals by Britney Spears, Gwen Stefani, Jason Derulo, Meghan Trainor, Juanes, Pink and Mary J. Blige.

GLAAD CEO Sarah Kate Ellis told Billboard it’s important to drive out the hate and ignorance that led to the attacks. “When you hear the song it talks about hate being the driver here, and that’s important because we have to be able to identify what’s driving these cruel acts in order to stop them. Artists using their platforms to accelerate acceptance is very powerful,” said Ellis.

Radio Ad Trying To Scare Latinos Into Voting For Republican By Suggesting Democrat Wants Latino Babies Aborted

“I have a question for Feingold. Why should you have my vote if you don’t want our babies?”

Things are getting pretty heated in Wisconsin’s senatorial race between Democrat Russ Feingold and Republican incumbent Ron Johnson, and Latinos are being dragged into the mix. On Wednesday, The Capital Times reported that the conservative Americas PAC ran an ad on Spanish radio that not so subtly suggests that a vote for Russ Feingold, who is currently leading Johnson at the polls, would essentially result in more Latino abortions.

To be clear, this is a super PAC and isn’t coming from the Johnson camp. (It’s against the law for politicians to coordinate with the super PACS that support them.)

The ad blatantly relies on the popular notion that Latinos are largely Catholic, and therefore very much against abortion. And how close is this to reality? Unclear, to be honest. There are conflicting polls that show Latinos being on both sides of the abortion issue. What’s clear as day, however, is that the prohibitively tough regulations for abortion providers that Latinos are supposed to be for disproportionately affected Latina women in Texas, where said measures actually became law before being struck down by the Supreme Court.
