Latino Quote Of The Day by Oscar Zeta Acosta

“Three hundred brown-eyed children of the sun have come to drive the money-changers out of the richest temple in Los Angeles. It is a dark moonless night and ice-cold wind meets us at the doorstep. We carry little white candles as weapons. In pairs on the sidewalk, we trickle and bump and sing with the candles in our hands, like a bunch of cockroaches gone crazy.”


Oscar Zeta Acosta (1935-1974), Mexican-American attorney, politician, writer.
