Is this why Herbalife hired Antonio Villaraigosa

theIn September Herbalife International announced the hiring of former City of Los Angeles mayor, Antonio Villaraigosa, and the Latino community was in an uproar.

The Los Angeles Times reported some Latino civil rights groups contend Herbalife misleads people about the prospect of making money by selling its products. Latinos make up at least 60 percent of the company’s U.S. distributors.

In February the Los Angeles Times reported how crucial the Latino population was to the continued success of Herbalife.  Was Villaraigosa brought on to simply help sign up more Latino’s?

You may also recall Villaraigosa was also used to convince Latino’s they were “white” just in time for the 2010 census count.

Just for clarity, 2UrbanGirls is NOT attacking Latino’s.  Merely showing they are being used for votes.  It was also reported over the weekend that the City of Los Angeles Police Department had to renege on a plan to ease the impounding of cars of those in the country illegally.

Don’t trip, the African-American community was already used.  Now they have moved on to the next emerging majority.  Asian Americans are up next!
