Add Wisin to the long list of people unhappy with recent comments and actions of businessman and 2016 Presidential candidate Donald Trump.
The 36-year-old Puerto Rican rapper Wisin, born Juan Morera, joins pop megastar Ricky Martin in asking Trump to simply stop being so disrespectful and racially demeaning to the Latin community. Just as Martin did earlier yesterday, Wisin released an open letter in which he refers to Trumps’ actions as pompous while also saying that Latins “together … are invincible.”
Distributed by his much-acclaimed and well-respected publicity firm The 3 Collective, here’s what Wisin had to say (as first translated from Spanish to English by Billboard.com):
No one who aspires to lead a country can have the audacity to violate inherent human rights, like equality of races and freedom of speech.
The arrogance shown against Jorge Ramos reflects on a man who didn’t learn from the history that so hurt the United States and caused so much suffering due to inequality among races. Men like Martin Luther King were able to dignify human beings without discriminating. Us Latins are able to achieve the impossible!!! Together we are invincible!!!
I join the voice of my friend and compatriot, Ricky Martin, and that of millions of Latins who have grown up, studied and work day to day in this country.
I invite all our community to come together and together raise a single voice:
ENOUGH! Mr. Donald Trump; someone who disrespects one of us disrespects all of us.
We have great responsibility in our hands. We will soon decide who will be the next President of this great country. Let’s all say #BASTAYA
