El Santo, the Vimeo description says, is a “Real New-Mexican Story for Real Lovers.” We’ve watched it a buncha times and were not sure what it means or if we are one of those “real lovers” in the intended audience, but we like what we see.

POCHO.COM Jefe-in-Chief Lalo Alcaraz was across the street from the White House — Lafayette Park — on the evening of August 26, 2018, and recorded some FREEDOM OF SPEECH in action.

“Get out of the White House,” this one citizen yelled, echoing the screams of millions of American minds. Also something about Diet Coke, murder and Putin. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

At the memorial service in Charleston, S.C. for the victims of a white wing racist terrorist, Barack Obama, the last real President of the United States, joined the congregation of mourners. What he did on that day became a song by Zoe Mulford, performed here by Xicana OG activist Joan Baez and animated in pastel watercolors by Jeff Scher. [EDITOR’S NOTE: It’s OK to cry.]

“They say that tougher gun laws do not decrease gun violence. We call BS!
They say a good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun. We call BS!
They say guns are just tools like knives and are as dangerous as cars. We call BS!”

Samuel W. Bennett’s GET DATA website features charts/graphs and infographics about current events, sports, news, culture, and history.
