LET'S GET COACH FLORES TO THE HALL

Avenir Light is a clean and stylish font favored by designers. It's easy on the eyes and a great go to font for titles, paragraphs & more.

In the hierarchy of prominent Mexican and Mexican-American figures, former NFL head coach Tom Flores is near the top along with Fernando Valenzuela, Ritchie Valens, among others.


 

Flores, was a leader during a time when even fewer Mexicans had leadership positions that they do today.


 

But he wasn’t just respected for the Mexican-American communities in California. After all, Flores coached in the Northern and Southern parts of the state and was raised in the Fresno area. He was a true Californio.


 

He was respected by folks in the business. He was known as a gentleman, someone who exhibited graciousness and class during a successful but turbulent time in the franchise’s history.


 

The Raiders were the center of controversy as they were in between the two cities, yet Flores led the Raiders to a Super Bowl in both Oakland and Los Angeles.


 

Flores never got the respect he deserved because of the animus against the franchise.


 

This is why we are here- to show our appreciation to Coach Flores- and to make others aware that this legend deserves to be a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

WHO WE ARE & THE WAY WE WERE

Founded by native Californians that want to bringing attention to those people and things that were and are a part of the California experience that often get ignored.

The California experience is generally also seen and exported by a small group of people, many who are either not from here or stay in their own insulated environment, safe and sound from "the Other". 

 

We are "the Other". 

We want to share this magical place with you and educate, analyze, reflect and reminisce. 

We may do some non-California stuff from time to time, but California is at the heart of who we are and what we do.
