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:

Prayer candles, better known among my people (i.e. The Hispanics) as veladoras, are making a splash among the avocado-loving millennial, non-Latin, non-religious crowd pushing their prices so high that you will wanna start praying for a raise.
According to this Vox.com article, a prayer candle featuring the likes of Elizabeth Warren, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or Jonathan Van Ness (because they all kind of are in the same business) can cost up to $12, compared to a regular prayer candle, which you’ll find pretty much anywhere in the USA for $2 –or for very few pesitos in any Latin American street market.
University professors and religious studies experts claim this is yet another sign of the decline of religious affiliation of Americans and some even go as far as to call these colorful candles “blasphemous” and a “direct threat to the Catholic faith.”
I don’t know much about that, but consider yourselves warned: The gentrification of veladoras is here to stay.
