Kansas City Latinx Voting Imagined

Traditionally, Latino voting rates in the Kansas City metro are abysmal and that's probably for the best given "complicated" residency status for quite a few among this demographic of aspiring voters. Here's a movement hoping to boost those numbers by using a term that most people don't understand.

I saw this story on the news and noticed the ladies interviewed doing the voter registration pushes among hispanics .... they were both white ladies. surprised tony missed this angle. like a "white girls named Debbie" kind of meme although if it's cheech and chong it's pre-meme

in general, vote drives, a good idea, but remarkable that these white ladies seemed so pushy with get out the latino vote drives, like, are the latinos even asking for these things? do these white ladies see obstacles to hispanic voting that hispanics don't see themselves?

Hispanics always vote for the wrong guy anyway. Their own people have been treated very badly down on the border for the past 4 years, and they will go right into the ballot box and vote for Trump and the republicans. Dummies
