Latinos did NOT help “create” #HipHop. At all. In fact it definitely seems in the early 1970s, Latinos had very #RACIST views of Hip Hop. This is Dj Charlie Chase 🇵🇷. One of the 1st #Latino DJ’s.

“Hispanics were telling me… what are u doing playing that Jung!e Bunny music?”
This shows ppl in the 1970s knew #HipHop was BLACK music. W/ a FEW #Latinos who participated in BLK culture. & it shows the racism from the Latino community in NY. Here again Dj #CharlieChase says fellow Latinos would tell him…

“What R u doing playing that Jung!e Bunny music?”
& much respect 2 the Legend Dj Charlie Chase 4 being honest. Especially w/ #LIARS like #FatJoe trying 2 rewrite history 2 say Latinos were Co-Creators w/ Blacks in Hip Hop. Even saying it was “50/50.” Trying 2 slowly #EraseBlacks.

Disrespectful White Supremacist #Colonizer sh*t.

A2 #Latinos are 1.5X as likely to be affected by #ALZ than non-Latino whites. They face inequities that discourage healthcare participation. They’re less likely to receive a timely diagnosis & more likely to experience #racism. #BrainHealthEquity #SaludTues @UsAgainstAlz (1/3)
A2 continued: In addition to barriers in healthcare participation, #Latinos & other people of color face higher risk for #ALZ or related dementia due to due to higher risk of comorbidities, like #diabetes and #hypertension. #BrainHealthEquity #SaludTues @UsAgainstAlz (2/3)
A2 continued: Lastly, social determinants of health #SDOH, like educational attainment, obesity & pollution are disproportionately felt by #Latino communities. We must make an intentional effort to promote #prevention & #BrainHealthEquity for #Latinos #SaludTues @UsAgainstAlz 3/3

If you live in the blue area of this map, we need you to vote in the Democratic Primary on August 2nd.

We need you to skip the statewide offices, our governor, SOS, and AG candidates are locked in anyway.

We need you to write in JOSEPH ALFONSO for US Congressional District 4. Image
If we fail to get 3,250 voters to do this, there will only be a Republican available on the 4th house district ballot, covering cities like #Kalamazoo, #BattleCreek, #BentonHarbor, #Holland, #Portage, #Saugatuck, #StJoseph, and #SouthHaven. That Republican is absolutely terrible.
Bill Huizenga represents the area of the district in the red square. His old gerrymandered district is in green. He's a no-name candidate in most of the district. He needs an opponent, especially one like Joseph Alfonso who is a Marine #veteran on the state plumbing board. ImageImage

New research from @UCLAlatino estimates that 78.1% of #Latinos voted NO in the CA #recall. Contrary to predictions that Latinos could be a key vote in defeating Newsom, very high support for @GavinNewsom among Latinos remains broadly unchanged from the 2018 election. (1/3)
As researchers @roddominguezv, @misaeligaldamez, @MichaelHerndon, @ana_loaxaca, @PalmerTurnbull, & @MikeBRios found, #Latino voters mobilized later than others. The single biggest day of Latino votes was September 14, 2021– the day of the #recall election. (2/3)
In most counties, support for @GavinNewsom ⬆️ as the concentration of #Latino voters in precincts ⬆️. For the full data, click here:… (3/3)

🧵A new report shows what we can already see—or better yet, what we can't see: Latino representation in the media and in Hollywood. 1/6 @PoderLatinx
Last October, Texas Rep @JoaquinCastrotx, asked the US Government Accountability Office (GAO) to investigate the situation. The report showed a significant exclusion of #Latinos in newsrooms, TV and film. 2/6
The report found that in 2019, the estimated percentage of Latinos working in newspaper, periodical, book, and directory publishers was about 8%. 3/6

🧵Because Latinos make up around 27% of all public school students but about 20% of college students, graduation rates rank lower than other groups. As a result, Pres. #Biden is allocating funds and support so Latino students can have better educational resources. (1/4)

"It is important to ensure that from early childhood to higher education, Hispanic and Latino students, including #Dreamers, can reach their highest potential," the president said. (2/4)
On Sept. 13, the president signed an order that focuses on breaking down barriers and systemic challenges facing Latino students from early childhood through college. Some of the highlights of his executive order include: (3/4)

#Venezuela A thread from me, a former #WhiteHouse #NationalSecurity staffer:(1 of 7)
This article from #Florida- @MiamiHerald -…… 🇻🇪...
2. As a Latina, Intelligence Officer & really just someone with common sense who was in the #WhiteHouse, watching @realDonaldTrump’s complete mismanagement & failure on this #Venezuela nation building attempt, first hand, has been upsetting from day one.
3.@realDonaldTrump doesn't actually care about #Libertad & he cares even less about @jguaido —I know Trump championed him as a leader, then called him "weak", a "joke" & proceeded to turn his back on the entire situation. The people of #Venezuela & its neighbors are on their own.

Dear #poverty scholars, it is time for a reckoning. It is long overdue. #Discrimination, #structuralinequality & the lived experiences of the poor is not a tangent, it is core to "mainstream" poverty scholarship.
@nyuwagner L. Mead’s @springerpub Society paper "Poverty & Culture" perpetuates inaccuracies, ideologies & power imbalances that distract productive discourse & policy innovation. This treatise insults poverty scholarship; no matter political leaning. (see more from @lennan77)
It needs to stop. Stop blaming the poor. Stop assuming that history & context do not matter. Stop unfounded explanations such as “culture.” Stop ignoring the developmental needs of children & the nurturing of families.

As poverty & social policy scholars, what can we do?

"As of Monday, Hispanic and Latino residents made up 54% of all COVID-19 hospitalizations in the Prince William Health District, or 144 of the 269 hospitalizations reported, even though they make up only 26% of the area’s total population."…
“In Prince William, our Spanish-speaking populations are less likely to be able to effectively social distance, as many have to continue working during this time or live in more crowded conditions”.…
We've got to look out for all members of the 1st District. We can't forget about our brothers and sisters in the Latino community. This campaign is about ensuring the Hispanic and Latino members of Virginia's 1st District are heard.

Does AUSA Moira Kim Penza, prosecutor in the fed. #NXIVM #RICO criminal racketeering case, realize that her indictments of #NXIVM leader, Keith Raniere aka "Vanguard," last March, may have affected the outcome of the 2018 Mexican Presidential Election? #ArizonaMafia #Democrats
Moira Kim Penza is 1 of the main prosecutors in the federal #NXIVM #RICO criminal case. A #RICO case is very serious; it is 1 of the most complex types of prosecutions the U.S. Government can initiate. Moira's boss is Richard P. Donoghue, U.S. Atty for the Eastern District of NY.
Penza is a smart lawyer. According to publicly available information, she studied at Cornell Law School, a private Ivy League University located in Ithaca, New York. Cornell was ranked the #13 law school in America, out of 203 law schools, by U.S. News & World Report, in 2018.

I've talked before about Russian #disinformation, and how the goal is to exploit existing divisive issues to weaken the enemy. 1 #InformationWarfare #WednesdayWisdom #CambridgeAnalytica #Russie #Putin #deza
Bernie v. Hillary, Benghazi & the "email scandal" were perfect targets. There was already tension & division on those topics, so they were easy to exploit. 2
Russia also targeted #peopleofcolor (specifically black voters) to sow distrust of Hillary & the political process, which helped Trump's campaign. 3…
