I have been on a “Donald Trump-Mexico” kick for a few days.
You may wonder why.
I’m Puerto Rican not Mexican.
I am a Latina.
We may have our differences and our arguments but when the line is drawn, we are all LATINOS.
We are family and we stick together. No one messes with our families
This is what has been happening.
Mr. Trump has insulted and continues to insult, to this day, the largest minority in this country. It obvious that he has no idea that he has stirred quite the “hornets’ nest”
Go Becky G!
The singer was NOT happy with Donald Trump’s insulting comments about immigration, and she made it known with a new song, ‘We Are Mexico.’
What a powerful message!
“Hard work, double time, overtime, two jobs, working till our heads hurt,
But we ain’t never late to pay the bills.”
“Mother said, ‘Always follow your heart, make sure you keep your head
Above the water,’ and I promised her I always will.”
I see 50 Latinos, 50 Latinas,
That’s my crib on the weekend, that’s mi familia
Talking in spanglish, en español,
I’m just here to let you know,
If you don’t know
Now you know
We are Mexico
It don’t matter where we go
Becky G, 18, had a lot to say, and she did it the way she knew best — by singing it loud, and singing it proud! Her new song, “We Are Mexico,” is a profound message to Donald Trump, 69, who made extremely racist comments about Mexican immigrants during his speech announcing his presidential candidacy on June 16.
What a brave and wonderful thing to do!
If it wasn’t clear that the song was aimed at Donald, Becky spelled it out clearly in the video’s description on YouTube when it was published on June 26: “This is for you Donald Trump.” All bets are off, Donald! The song is a beautiful ode to life as a Mexican-American. She describes working hard and working late, and a strong connection to family and friends — a stark contrast to Donald’s highly derogatory comments.
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best … They’re sending people who have lots of problems,” Donald said. “They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists, and some, I assume, are good people.”
“I’m just here to let you know: If you don’ know, now you know. We are Mexico. It don’t matter where we go. Viva Mexico,” Becky sings triumphantly in response.
It’s a powerful song that puts Donald in his place and truly makes him look small for his horrible insults. Becky isn’t letting his words bring her down, and she’s letting others know that they shouldn’t either!
Donald should be a little worried, too.
He better not make Becky mad anymore, because this version of the song is only 1:20 long and she’s packed a serious punch. Just think of what she could pack in a full-length song!
