When 11-year old Sebastien de la Cruz sang the National Anthem dressed in a mariachi costume, all hell broke loose. “People were out of their minds with racism and racial tweets,” says Pedro Rafael Rosado. “It’s a cultural touchstone. It’s exactly the kind of news story that gets our blood boiling.”
A vibrant podcast where anything can–and does–happen, ”Robles & Rosado” is a no-holds-barred look at the Hispanic-American experience hosted by Emmy-winning comedian Mike Robles alongside Pedro, a web radio personality and award-winning journalist.
With topics like “I’m Latino and Successful. So Where the White Women At?”, “Feeling Like a Piñata at a KKK Rally“ and “Ebola Makes Americans Panic and Blame Hispanics”, they blend comedy and controversy in a way that opens hearts and minds. Pedro says: “We are not playing by the rules created by the Latino media establishment. They think we’re troublemakers.”
Mike takes it further: “I’m so sick and tired of everyone blaming the Hispanic community for everything. C’mon. Ebola? Immigration? Latinos exist beyond ‘the border’ issue. We have the same American dream as everyone else.” Catch their latest episodes at www.roblesandrosado.com. Join the conversation at www.getboldtoday.com.
