Invisible Latinos: Bootstraps and What They Hide

Invisible Latinos: Bootstraps and What They Hide

El Guapo would like to apologize in advance for anyone expecting what he normally attempts to pass off as humor.  You won’t get too much of that in this one.  Occasionally, El Guapo loses his mind.  Read on.
