Rick Trevino Debuts “I Am A Mexican” [VIDEO]

Continuing the musical theme of struggle and inclusion that one currently sees in the music industry, country crooner Rick Trevino debuts a new single, “I Am A Mexican.” Backed up by Grammy winning acordeonista Flaco Jimenez, the poignant song about the real struggles of a laboring immigrant is timely as negative rhetoric and negative policies toward brown people continue to intensify.

For years, now, the country singer, who started his career in bilingual fashion, has been working on his roots, participating in projects, such as Los Super Seven, singing Tejano with Ruben Ramos, and adding a Tex-Mex flavor to his tunes. So, it’s not surprising that he has come to this point where he is able to address one of the most heated issues in America.

Here’s I Am A Mexican. While the song is poignant, it’s the images in the video that are powerful.
