These Young Mexican-Americans Just Wrote A Corrido For Bernie Sanders

El Quemazón is a Thing

Pancho VillaGregorio Cortez. 9/11. El Chapo’s tunnel escape. These are just a few individuals and events whose stories have been commemorated in a corrido. Now, thanks to Grupo La Meta, a Mexican-American group from Modesto, Calif., you can add Bernie Sanders to that list.

In true corrido fashion, the nearly three minute-long song starts by telling Sanders’s origin, referencing his upbringing in Brooklyn, and finishes off with a greater message. In this case, that message is that Sanders, according to the songwriters, is good for the Latino community.

Juve Quintana, the 26-year-old author of the song, told Buzzfeed News that he was largely inspired by the seemingly lack of recognition the Vermont Senator has with the larger Latino community.

“I thought what can I do so the Hispanics, the paisanos, the Mexicans vote for him?,” Quintana said. “Everyone I speak to says ‘I’m going to vote for Hillary’ and I say ‘Have you heard of Bernie Sanders?” And they say ‘No, I don’t even know who that is.’”

This, of course, isn’t the first time that young Latinos have hinted at the fact that older Latinos don’t know about Sanders. Earlier this month we wrote about a group of young activists spreading the Bern to their elders in Illinois.

In the aforementioned Buzzfeed interview, Quintana said he would love to perform at a Bernie Sanders rally in California, something the Sanders camp said they’d be open to. This wouldn’t be a bad idea. After all, despite the data that suggests young Latinos are feeling the Bern, he’s lost most states that have a sizable Latino population. Sanders has lost most states At this point, he needs all the help he can get, especially in California, where he’s got about a 14 percent chance of winning that primary.
