I’ve spent many, MANY, years on this blog trying to explain “Latin things” or “Mexican things” to a mostly monolingual, crowd and I believe I’ve been pretty good at it.
The above cover by a Mexican tabloid perfectly captured (prematurely, mind you) what happened on November 7, 2020, when the presidential election was finally called for Joe Biden, making Trump one of the few incumbents to lose a bid for reelection (thank God!) It also makes it harder to explain, so I will let the wonderful people from Urban Dictionary to take it from here.
The Biden-Harris campaign this weekend launched its first joint campaign ad. It is a 30-second spot running across several platforms that kicks off entirely in Spanish, with a narrator saying “dime con quién andas, y te diré quién eres,” which translates to “tell me who you walk with, and I’ll tell you who you are.”
But because we’re talking about Spanish *and* the ever important Latino vote here, the narrator goes on to make his point even clearer by reminding us that is exactly what our abuelos and abuelas taught us.
Because Latinos, you know?
WATCH the spot below and remember: Always follow your abuela advice:
