<![CDATA[Hosted by Brenda Castillo Nogales, Straight UP! gets straight to the point. No tip toeing around subjects and no nonsense. Discussions can be anything and everything related to the human experience, including subjects that people shy away from like religion, sex, and politics. The time is now to get rid of the clutter and just talk Straight UP! The United States’ history is riddled with many moments of shame and great injustice, especially when it comes to people of color. Host, Brenda Nogales, sits down with Trinidad Gonzales, a descendant of one of the victims of the Texas Massacre of 1915 when innocent Americans of Mexican descent and Mexicans including women, children, and the elderly were burnt, decapitated, tortured, and murdered by the Texas Rangers. Inevitably, the Texas Rangers were pardoned by the then Texas Governor Ferguson. Most U.S. history books, including the ones in the educational system, don’t discuss or mention these massacres. Brenda focuses on connecting the massacres with the pardoning of Joe Arpaio by Donald Trump despite the overwhelming evidence of his racial profiling and the violence from his actions.
