Issues and Answers

Issue

Too many corporations think about marketing to the 55 million strong Latino Market during Hispanic Heritage month or try on Cinco de Mayo.

However, these companies have put their money where their mouth is for Latino market. We'd like to call them our top "Three Amigos" aka The Three Caballeros 1944
AT&T “Between Two Worlds”
AT&T’s #BetweenTwoWorlds is the Hispanic movement in their expansive social media campaign #TheMobileMovement, which launched earlier this year. The company began the Hispanic operation in July 2014 as an opportunity to connect and engage bicultural Latinos, particularly digital-savvy millennials.
#BetweenTwoWorlds focuses on the lives of young acculturated Hispanics between their teens and mid-30s, who easily identify with both mainstream U.S. culture and their Latino background. Accompanying the #TheMobileMovement is a Tumblr page similarly featuring Spanglish posts. The two hashtags can also be found on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Dunkin Donuts “Dunkin' Latino”
As of June 2014, Dunkin’ Donuts launched its Latino Twitter page, looking to cater to the company’s Spanish speakers. Last year, Dunkin’ Donuts also claimed to be the first national coffee retailer to make its website, mobile, and Facebook platforms available in Spanish and English.
With the social media campaign launch, there was a brief sweepstakes. Fans could follow @DunkinLatino and use the hashtag #MiDunkinEsTuDunkin to enter a chance to win a $100 Dunkin’ Donuts gift card for themselves and a friend. The brand is now supporting their digital Hispanic movement with hashtags such as #MiDunkin and #DunkinLatino.

McDonald’s “Me Encanta”
Back in 2011, McDonald’s introduced its Spanish-language Twitter campaign. @MeEncanta is a Spanglish-based account used to interact with fans about promotional deals through music, sports and education.
McDonald’s Latino movement is currently engaging its online audience with its hashtag #MiMomento. The hashtag, however, has not seemed to catch on yet with many of the posts coming from unrelated tweets.

Democracy Inaction

Issue

Political debates of camp pain 2016 are taking on meaner, uglier tones. Future generations will condemn us for inaction, wonder how we got here and why this was allowed to continue?

Following the latest disgusting debate, it is clear to all decent flag waiving folks that nobody won and there was no shortage of losers. Too many lies and no substance in most cases.

Racial Bias Blow

Issue

The US Supreme Court has dealt a legal pushback and a big blow to racial bias in criminal cases, making it easier to unwind all convictions of defendants whose jurors show personal prejudices during their deliberations.

Justice Anthony Kennedy joined the court’s four liberal members in limiting the scope of Colorado’s “no impeachment rule,” which is designed to protect the finality of verdicts and the secrecy of deliberations.

FIRST FEMALE RULER

Announcement
Images: 

She was the daughter of King Thutmose I, Hatshepsut ultimately became Queen of Egypt when she married her half-brother, Thutmose II, at 12 years of age. Upon his death, she began acting as regent for her stepson, the infant Thutmose III, but later took on the full powers of a pharaoh, becoming co-ruler of Egypt around 1473 B.C.

Hatshepsut was only the third woman to become pharaoh in 3,000 years of ancient Egyptian history, and the first one with full power of the position. Cleopatra, who also exercised such power, would rule some 14 centuries later.

KANGAROO COURT

Problem

#ChasingCleveland makes sure you take the time to read the US Constitution and keep it handy next to your Bible because you're going to need them if fat cats like Christie gain any more political power and influence.

The poor people of New Jersey are already seeing it up close and personal. And if Trump gets elected, poor US.

Election Day Votes

Issue

Happy daze are here again, so let us hope there is no suspicious activity surrounding this one and while today's races may not have anywhere near the buzz as a presidential election, there are plenty seats and important issues at stake.

Voters from many cities and states around this great country will vote for their chosen local representatives, while New Jersey and Virginia will choose their next governors. The battle for Virginia's governor will be of particular interest as many are calling it a bellwether for Trump's impact on midterm elections in 2018.

EMPOWERMENT

Solution

If we want something, we have to go after it and tell our story. To be real, accountable and bold.

I want you to let cimages.me know what topics need to be covered. Let's talk about topics that no one else talks about.

Human interest stories are empowering when shared authentically, with accountability. Humans are empowered by authenticity and inspired by bold vulnerability.
