Taking a job at a multi-level marketing firm would be a tacky signpost of any first-tier politician's professional trajectory. It's especially unsightly when that politician is Antonio Villaraigosa.
The close to 8 million Latino evangelicals owe a deep debt of gratitude to leaders like King, Rosa Parks, César Chavez, Joanne Robinson, and Fannie Lou Hamer.
