Pixar's 'Coco' and Latino self-esteem in the age of Trump

Hosted by  • 

Imagine being told repeatedly by the President of the United States  that you're the problem and that the country would be a much better place if you weren't in it. Imagine hearing that your immigrant grandfather was a criminal, and a "bad hombre" who preyed upon "real" Americans and pilfered the nation's resources. And you know not a word of it is true. If you weren't so busy working, paying your taxes, and raising good kids, you'd stop to correct the record. Then, just when your self-esteem could use a boost, Coco comes along.
