So God Made a (Latino) Farmer

I was reading Take Part (an awesome blog/organization btw!) and saw this video, which uses the same narration as the original ad, but as explained in the accompanying article, responds to the fact that “for an industry so dependent on immigrant farm labor, Ram’s representation is far, far too white.” The article also writes the interesting fact that “according to the most recent National Agricultural Workers Survey, 68 percent of workers were born in Mexico.”

Here’s the article: http://www.takepart.com/video/clip-day-so-god-made-latino-farmer
