Welcome to LABProLib!
LABProLib stands for Latino and Black Progressive Liberalism! We are not a news website. Our website catalogs online articles, events, photos, cartoons, selected powerful satire stories, and more that speaks to people of color and our allies. Most of the articles are complemented with photographs and graphs that has been appropriated into memes.
Memes (also known as images, graphics or illustrations created to express or expose ideas and messages) are intentionally prominent on our site as a means to attract readers’ attention and illustrate stories without the need of using a lot of words. Articles are used only to support and reinforce what it has been already illustrated for the readers. You might also notice titles of articles has been changed or appropriated, also done intentionally, to help drive home the messages or ideas of each meme. The goal for creating memes is to awaken the reader’s subconscious and to provide them with a different perspective how to look at a particular topic or issue. 90% of the memes published on this site and through our Facebook page have been created by LABProLib. That’s what makes this website unique!

History & Social Media
Social media (Facebook and Twitter) played a critical role during the 2008 Presidential Race. Many community activists opened social media accounts to inform voters how to register to vote, about their voting rights, and to highlight candidates’ political platform and record. In 2008, then Senator Obama brought much excitement for progressives and liberals as the Democratic Presidential nominee and during his Presidential re-election. President Obama’s win was not enough for some community activists. There was a need to continue having an open dialogue for the issues that Blacks and Latinos were and continue to face.
