Jovita Idár Cause of Death – #GoogleDoodle to celebrate Mexican-American journalist
Jovita Idár, a native of Loredo, Texas, was a pioneer of Mexican-American civil rights during the early 1900’s when Mexican-Americans faced rampant discrimination.
In 1911, Idár and her family helped establish the First Mexican Congress to organize Mexican-Americans across Texas in the fight for their civil rights. She also fought for women’s suffrage, and affirmed the importance of Mexican culture.

Among other things, she was an activist, journalist, teacher and stood-up to the injustice of Texas Rangers.
Did your history classes tell you anything at all about this hero of democracy? How about Texas history books? Does anyone out there believe for one microsecond that Trump and his regime are talking about such as she in their plaintive wailing for “patriotic” “1776” history to be taught in “American” schools?
THIS is who Red Wing was recommending the WBCA be renamed after. Even Google sees her contributions in the city/Hispanic culture moreso than its citizens. Let’s change that! Washington never stepped foot in Laredo while this woman defended it until the end. Renaming the event would be the first indication that Laredo actually trusts its own power and identity (instead of trying to adopt another city/nation’s culture).
