📺 “United Shades of America” Latino, USA | CNN

Watched "United Shades of America" Latino, USA from CNN
With W. Kamau Bell. The population of East Los Angeles is over 90 percent Latino; they are predicted to be the majority population of Americans by 2044; W. Kamau Bell speaks to many Latinos who are fighting prejudice and spreading the message of tolerance.

It helps to watch an episode reflecting some culture in my own back yard. I’ve now got a better barometer by which to judge some of the rest of the series.

Kamau gets it pretty solid, though there’s a lot more poverty and struggle while his version here makes things seem much more upbeat. Like Kamau in this episode, I’m almost tempted to say “Soy Chicano tambien.”
