LOVE: Black Lives Matter & Counterprotesters Come Together

This is a video that is a few months old, but it is very moving and I wanted to share it here on TLLOH. Black Lives Matter and White Protesters come together realizing that unity is the answer. Law enforcement was very supportive at this event and this needs to be highlighted as well. This is a Latino website, and frankly, Latinos are not “one” thing. Many of us are mixed, some of us have biracial children, and we all come from different religious backgrounds. There will be posts on this blog that incorporates many different things that makes us who we are.

In this video, the media showed how two opposing views managed to see eye to eye with frankness and humility. There’s lots of misinformation. And I strongly hold fake news sites accountable for misinformation that has led to the brutal killings of many innocent people. There are also networks that spew lies, stir hatred and refuse to state facts. It’s truly saddening what we’re doing to our country. We are our country. And if we destroy each other then we’re destroying America.  #UnitedWeStand

Cuba’s Former Leader, Fidel Castro, Dead at Age 90

Fidel Castro was born as Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz on August 13, 1926. Castro was a lawyer, politician and dictator who overthrew Fulgencia Batista’s government during the Cuban Revolution. Castro served as the 16th Prime Minister of Cuba from February 16, 1959 to December 2, 1976, before becoming the 17th President of Cuba. He promised the working-class a better life that came with great education and healthcare for everyone. But later censored freedom of speech and limited their economic opportunities. Many Cubans in Cuba, praise him. It’s not as if they can say otherwise. The ones living in the United States have a different opinion, usually negative ones, which is clearly shown in places like Miami, FL, where many Cubans are celebrating his death.

Castro died on November 25, 2016. His younger brother, RaĂșl Castro, has been serving as the country’s leader since 2006.

The “Hamilton” Cast Address VP-Elect Mike Pence Who was in the Audience

VP-elect Mike Pence went to see Hamilton. Hamilton is one of the best shows on Broadway where tickets are hard to get and are selling as high as $10,000. One of the cast members, Brandon Victor Dixon, took the opportunity to thank Mike Pence for attending and also to express an important message. The future VP was not received well by other audience members, but Dixon asked the audience not to boo him, “There’s nothing to boo ladies and gentlemen.  There’s nothing to boo. We’re all here sharing a story of love.” He followed:

President-elect Trump saw Dixon’s message as a personal attack. He tweeted:

Dixon responded:

The show’s creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda, stated:

Cities Against Trump’s Deportation Plan

Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco are just some of the cities that don’t want to partake in the federal government’s deportation plan of undocumented immigrants. It doesn’t come without consequences. Trump has stated before he wants to put an end to sanctuary cities, his immigration policies are strict and he plans on carrying them out. On his website, it states that the goal is to, “Reform legal immigration to serve the best interests of America and its workers, keeping immigration levels within historic norms.” This is part of his vision to Make America Great Again.

Trump to his Supporters Attacking Minorities, “STOP IT!”

In an interview for 60 Minutes, Lesley Stahl met with President-elect Donald Trump. Stahl asked Trump many important questions about job creation, the border, and recent attacks against minorities. He responded, “I’m very SURPRISED to hear that… I am so saddened to hear that, and I say stop it, if it helps, I will say this, and I will say it right to the camera— STOP IT.” Stahl followed, “I want to ask you all about something that’s going on right now around the country. A lot of people are afraid. They’re really afraid. African Americans think there’s a target on their back. Muslims are terrified.” Donald Trump said, “I think it’s horrible if that’s happening. I think it’s built up by the press because, frankly, they’ll take every single little incident that they can find in this country, which could’ve been there before. If I weren’t even around doing this, and they’ll make into an event because that’s the way the press is.” Stahl asked his family, “Do any of you want to say anything about this fear that’s out there?” Donald Trump, Jr. stressed, “I– I think the fears, you know, while they may be there, some fabricated, some not— are totally unfounded.” The 45th President reiterated that he plans on building the wall. He also wants to repeal Obamacare, but promises to replace it with better healthcare for less money. Watch the rest on CBS News.
