As you may already know, Mexican-Americans make up almost 70% of the entire Latino population pie.  We are the bulk of the "Latino" group -- and as such ... Mexican Americans ought to take a deeper look into Coca Cola as the thirsty summer season approaches.

Mexican Americans also ought to consider more Mexican-friendly soft drinks, too, and Jarritos is looking better and better to me as a mom, and as a consumer deciding what soft drinks to buy for my children.

Allow me to esplain myself ...

America's Voice has identified the below people as part of the Gang of Hate with regard to the immigration reform bill that is being discussed:

SEN. JEFF SESSIONS (R-AL)


SEN. CHUCK GRASSLEY (R-IA)


SEN. JOHN CORNYN (R-TX)


SEN. TED CRUZ (R-TX)


SEN. DAVID VITTER (R-LA)

Yet, we see Coca-Cola giving to anti-immigrant politicians like Senators Ted Cruz and John Cornyn.

In fact,  Coca-Cola continues to give more in contributions to Republican politicians over the Democratic politicians.

See below Open Secrets image:

House

So there ya have it, mi gente!

I encourage you to drink less Coke and drink from companies who don't backstab us.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
