Here’s why this matter: The story of Latino history, culture and contributions to our nation (our narrative/story) has been left out, erased, deleted from the larger American narrative/story. We have been rendered functionally ahistorical in our own nation. 1/

The #InflationReductionAct makes important progress on many fronts, but capping insulin at $35/month for seniors is one of the big wins. My grandmother struggled with diabetes, and the cost of insulin was always a burden. Nobody should struggle to afford the medicine they need.

San Antonio treasure @tom_orsborn talked to fellow San Antonio treasure Nelson Wolff on lessons learned as Wolff winds down his career of public service, and this synopsis of the city’s pro sports flirtations is dang near perfect.

Fredericksburg TX: “We have some people who are pretty fanatical and radical about things,” said Gillespie Co. Judge Mark Stroeher. “Unfortunately, they have driven out our elections administrator, and not just her, but the staff. Everybody has resigned.”

Finally, Governor Newsom of CA recently challenged Hollywood to walk the walk — to live up to their progressive talk and stop filming in “red states.” The thing is, even when they film in California they hire like they’re in Idaho. Perhaps he can change that as well. ~ end ~

Make no mistake, social media platforms have enabled Breitbart through amplification & more — providing reach & credibility. I argued w/ Zuckerberg and @Meta leadership about labeling Breitbart a “trusted news source” but growth & profit always supersedes everything else.

Thank you Congressman. We still have work to do but I remain hopeful for the future of Latinos in entertainment. #RepresentationMatters #Latinos

Great to see @jeanguerre of the @latimes , @ByClaytonDavis of @variety and @Paulina_VV of the @washingtonpost shine a spotlight over the past week on the lack of Latino representation in media and entertainment. Expect even more coverage in the near future by additional media. 23/

It amazes me how Fox News doesn’t believe a word of what law enforcement says when they execute a search warrant against Donald Trump but believes every single claim by law enforcement when they execute an unarmed Black man.
