WATCH: Teen catches racists in the act in awesome viral Vine videos


I like to think that our society has progressed by being tolerant of people of different races, backgrounds and sexual orientations, but somehow racism still seems to be alive and well. Take for instance Vine user Rashid Polo, an African American teen who noticed that he is constantly followed by employees in convenience stores under the assumption he is going to steal.

Unfortunately I've had a firsthand taste of this myself and know exactly how he feels!

Pancho Claus is the Santa every Latino can relate to!


Christmas is but two days away and this time of the year always makes me reminisce about how I celebrated the holidays growing up. It was all about Santa Claus, Papa Noel, or El Niño Dios. Texans apparently have their own version called Pancho Claus, the Tex-Mex Santa
