TX: Tejano singer convicted of rape to launch comeback tour

[ – 12/4/19]

HOUSTON — A Tejano singer who was convicted of raping an underage female relative and imprisoned for more than a decade is preparing to relaunch his career with a sold-out show in Houston, despite the original terms of his release barring him from visiting the city and surrounding county because the victim lives there.

For every one person against him, there are three more who support him,” said Vallejo, who noted that Lopez has been busy rehearsing.

Tejano is a style of dance music that mixes elements of Mexican folk music along with country, jazz and rock music.

Lopez is slated to begin his “Freedom Tour” with his band on Dec. 13 at El Rodeo Disco in Houston. Tickets sold out on Monday, the venue’s Facebook page shows.

“Joe is eager to get back performing because he loves his fans so much,” Lopez’s attorney Allison Clayton said.

After thinking about this, along with the article on the lack of SO laws named after Blacks; iI’m not surprised that this particular SO is doing so well. The culture he comes from is very much into the whole “machismo thing.” His “community” will always be more supportive of his efforts to recover his life. Racial stereotypes will and DO come into play, when it comes to treatment of SO.
* Whites are supposed to “know better.”
* Blacks are subhuman.
* Hispanics get a pass, because of machismo.
* Asians are the “model minority.”
Oh, and having financial resources also helps; no matter who you are…

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
