Growing up with a very religious single mom I wasn’t allowed to see a lot of things on TV. We didn’t have cable, so already there were very little questionable TV shows in the early 90s, and since there was only one TV in our small illegally* converted garage apartment the only thing that would be on after 6, 7, or 8 pm when my mom got home from work was Univision or Telemundo. My mother always paid attention to the news, as any undocumented immigrant would. Univision was our fucking lawyer when I grew up and I was an eight or nine year old kid who knew the cops were after me because I’m brown.
