MKREWIND: History of Texas Rangers and the Mexican-American Massacre (EP 249)

Episode 249

28th July 2020

We revisit the history behind Mexican-Americans being massacred at the hands of the Texas Rangers. Plus a celebrity call for the Maximum Fun Drive, and more deep dive into the history behind the drama of Destiny’s Child.

Episode notes

This week we revisit Nnekay’s Korner on the slaughtering of Mexican-Americans, at the hands of the Texas Rangers, not Walker Texas Ranger, but… we have choice words for him too. This story is jaw dropping, and parallels  many of the other stories we’ve covered around America’s bloody past to just about everyone. Black folks, Indigenous Peoples, LatinX folx you name it. It showcases this countries early gentrification and brutalization of police force. Also it’s the Maximum Fun Drive and ohhhh we have a NEW never before heard call from another celebrity who’d like to become a member. Who could it be?  Plus speaking of Destiny’s Child (did we say Destiny’s Child) I complete our deep dive into the drama behind the girl group.
