¿Cómo Se Dice? ¿Cómo Se Llama? ¡Obama! ¡Obama!
Latino supporters of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama are attempting to fill what they see as a “void in media outreach” to voters from their communities by creating the site “Amigos de Obama,” where supporters can blog, coordinate events and even download a ringtone and special reggaeton tribute to the “skinny dude with the funny name.”
Wait, before you go…
We are desperately seeking a voice that speaks authentically. Race and politics aside, it’s leadership not sound bites that we need. If you claim to be compassionate, show it. If you preach unity, help us unify and heal our great divide. If you want our vote, earn it. Be real. Barack Obama represents a defining moment for our generation. We have an opportunity to be agents of change and bring awareness to the Latino community.
