Cartoonist and satirist Lalo Alcaraz is like the Chicano Aaron McGruder. (Do people still say “Chicano”? I mean, people under 50?)
His syndicated comic strip, La Cucaracha, is the sharpest thing to hit the funny pages since The Boondocks. (After seeing Lalo’s strip today, I think he knows this.)
And guess what? Just like The Boondocks did, La Cucaracha occasionally kicks up some drama.
Meanwhile, Alcaraz also co-hosts a weekly satirical radio show, “The Pocho Power Hour,” on KPFK in Los Angeles.
