Scholars & Rogues has enjoyed some collective recognition in its brief history, and now one of our writers has been singled out for individual acclaim. Major props to Edmundo Rocha, whose Silver Star nod from the Texas Progressive Alliance is extremely well-deserved.
Blending heavy-handed social critiques, local and national politics, and a heaping dose of common sense in his blog, Edmundo Rocha tackles heavy topics like immigration, teenage pregnancy, racial and gender politics, and backs up everything with a sense of style and spirit. With a loyal and unwavering audience (his Texan of the Year nomination, in fact, was suggested in the comments of a blog by one of Edmundoâ€™s readers), Rocha has rapidly become one of the stateâ€™s most prominent Latino bloggers. No issue is too tough, and none taboo for this blogger. (Source.)
In addition to his contributions here, Edmundo is the force behind the highly influential Â¡Para Justicia y Libertad!. On behalf of the entire S&R community, let me say congratulations, and we’re glad you’re part of our team.
