Lalo Alcaraz on being “pocho”
What does it mean to be Mexican American? For some, it means you’re a “pocho” – neither “Mexican” nor “American” enough. Chicano artist, satirist and cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz has been poking fun at these ideas for decades, first as an editorial cartoonist for the LA Weekly and then as syndicated cartoonist and radio host of the “Pocho Hour of Power” on KPFK. Alcaraz’s first labor of love, however, was Pocho Magazine, a ‘zine Alcaraz produced with his good friend Esteban Zul. Many years and awards later, Alcaraz has recreated the magazine, this time in online form. Pocho.com, news y satire, relaunched in December of 2011 and features contributions from Daily Show Senior Latino Correspondent Al Madrigal, amongst others. Patt checks in with Alcaraz to talk about Pocho, plus his newest project, @MexicanMitt, a satirical Twitter project about candidate about Mitt Romney and his Mexican roots.
Lalo Alcaraz is “jefe-in-chief” of the recently-launched Pocho.com; creator of the first nationally-syndicated, politically-themed Latino daily comic strip, “La Cucaracha”; and host of the “Pocho Hour of Power” on KPFK; professor at the Otis College of Art and Design.
