How arrogant is mankind to create and build the world and claim to not have a creator themselves.
The term Hispanic, coined by technomarketing experts and by the designers of political campaigns, homogenizes our cultural diversity (Chicanos, Cubans, and Puerto Ricans become indistinguishable), avoids our indigenous cultural heritage, and links us directly with Spain. Worse yet, it possesses connotations of upward mobility and political obedience.Guillermo Gómez-Peña (via aypaulito)
Darnz. Don’t have any right now >.
You and Anderson Cooper have the same coming out calendar week in common, but in many obvious ways, you couldn’t be more different. Anderson Cooper is an heir to one of America’s great Industrial Age fortunes and a network professional whose maleness and whiteness backed by his considerable accomplishments guarantee him work. You are a young Black man from New Orleans who fled your still struggling city. You didn’t arrive in Los Angeles with generational wealth and privilege, only the beautiful lyrics and melodies that danced through you and your dream of making it in a music industry whose sand castles were crumbling.
Oh my god I have fucking shivers
I LOVE this essay, and when i read the whole thing, i was like omg Jay… but LISTEN!: a black woman named dream hampton wrote this! NOT Jay-Z… it was posted on his life + times website, but again HE DID NOT WRITE IT.
Apparently, she ghostwrites on the regular, so she’ll write shit and her name will not be on it… it’s officially credited to somebody else… celebrity autobiographies often have a bunch of ghostwriters. On Jay-z’s website, this beautiful letter to Frank Ocean is credited to dream, just in little letters, top-left.

"Just don’t go"
A let it go parody.
omA. i love this.
About this post I just had to reply. But I reply because I just saw a person I follow reblog it and I just had to:
Hi to everyone. I knew sooner than later I had to write about the situation in my country. Let’s begin.
First let’s start from a premise: The media in all part of the world IS NOT unbiased. The media always defends a political interest or a economic interest. Their appreciation about the reality is subjective. They only show what the consider must be shown that’s convenient. THEY AREN’T OBJECTIVE.
Now, to present a Venezuela living a crisis, a Venezuela as a militarized country, in a civil war is convenient TO WHOM? It’s convenient for the people that wants the oil, the mineral resources, the water, it’s convenient to have that global opinion so they can have an excuse to interfere in OUR COUNTRY. I’m a venezuelan girl living in Venezuela (in the north of Valencia no less, center of a big part of the opposition) and as a venezuelan living those riots in the first row I won’t tolerate lights opinions or misguides information about my country just because a group of violent oppositors want to derrocate a democratic goverment and want intervention from other countries and institutions in Venezuela BECAUSE THEY CAN’T WIN AN ELECTION. Have you ever wondered why the revolution has won almost all the election since 1999? Here look by yourself: http://www.cne.gob.ve/web/estadisticas/index_resultados_elecciones.php This is a democratic republic. He have at least one election every year.
Now I want to recall what generated those riots: The students in the opposition with their famous plan called “La Salida” they began the 12 of Febrary this year. And it consisted in:
Violent groups of the oppositors blocking the streets, obstructing ambulances and all transiting vehicles, they had burned buses and cars, they blocked the streets with trash in fire and broken sewers, they attack public spaces and buildings, also goverment buildings, they’re destroying the cities calling out to “fight the government” and start a war, THEY FIRED FIREWORKS AT THE NATIONAL GUARD AND THE POLICE THEY’RE TRYING TO KILL THEM. They are just creating disasters in their own country, what they are doing is terrorism! When violence it’s your way of thinking all your reasons lost validity EVEN MORE IF YOU’RE PROTESTING FOR THE PEACE OF VENEZUELA AND BECAUSE YOU BELIEVE IN LIBERTY AND PEACE. If you really care about this you would call out to dialogue between people and not throw bottles, trash, Fireworks at everyone who tries to stop the violence. They just want the NATO to make an intervention.
I saw the videos and let me remind you a few things: The Nation Guard is throwing petters (not designed to kill) and tear-gas to disperse the violent groups and riots.
THIS http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNYhQ936MCg DOESN’T DEMOSTRATE ANYTHING ABOUT THE NG KILLING A PERSON. PLEASE READ THIS (SPANISH) http://albaciudad.org/wp/index.php/2014/02/es-falso-que-hayan-fallecido-personas-en-la-avenida-panteon-y-la-candelaria-en-la-noche-de-este-jueves/
“Al respecto, la periodista Anzola informó que ”Francisco Garcia (fue) herido en la Avenida Urdaneta, esquina de Candilito a Platanal. Herida por arma de fuego en pie izquierdo. Ingresado (en la clínica La) Arboleda. De alta.” Es de destacar que la Guardia Nacional tiene prohibido el uso de armas de fuego en manifestaciones, y de confirmarse que algún efectivo estaba usando armas de fuego, la institución lo castiga severamente y pasa a los implicados a Fiscalía. Sin embargo, el video, al ser de muy baja definición y grabado de noche, no permite determinar quién o qué hizo el disparo.(…)
Respecto a este herido, la periodista Anzola informó que el herido se llama Roberto Ulises González González (37). Fue “herido (en la) Av. Panteón, pasaje La Esmeralda”. Indicó iniciamente que fue víctima “presuntamente de heridas de perdigón, impacto le perforó arteria y esperan donantes”, y que se encuentra en el Hospital Perez Carreño. ”Se requieren 34 donantes de sangre de cualquier tipo a partir de las 6 am de mañana. Está en terapia intensiva”. Luego señaló que la herida se debió a armas de fuego. Se espera información oficial sobre el tema.
Es necesario recordar que el Presidente Nicolás Maduro ha ordenado que ningún cuerpo encargado de controlar los disturbios pueda portar armas de fuego que usen municiones letales. Es preciso mantener un espíritu crítico ante este tipo de videos, captados por personas que se encuentran a una distancia considerable de los hechos, con equipos celulares que no cuentan con la tecnología necesaria para grabar escenas de noche y a larga distancia, y en un ambiente emocional exacerbado, que impide a quienes los narran tener un mínimo de imparcialidad o tratar de ser un poco objetivos con lo que ven.”
“In relation, the periodist Anzola informed that ‘Francisco García was wounded in the Urdaneta avenue. Wound by a fire arm in his left leg. Ingresed the Arboleda clinic. Discharged’ The National Guard is PROHIBITED to carry firearms in manifestations and IF one force of the NG is confirmed to have ported one then the institution will applicate severe punishment and the accused will be reported to the district attorney. The video presented has a low quiality and is filmed in the night, it can’t be desmostrate who did the gunshot (…)
In relation to the other wounded, the periodist Anzola informed that the person wounded is called Roberto Ulises González González (37). He was wounded in the Av. Panteón, La Esmeralda. He was a victim of ‘wounds made by pellets, impacts that cut through his arteries and he’s waiting for donors’ currently in the Perez Carreño Hospital, he’s in intense therapy. Later the same same reporter informed the wounds were made by a fire arm and the case is being investigated.
Is important to recall that President Nicolás Maduro has prohibited all the security trops, that are controling the protests, to carry and use fire arms or using letal ammunitions. It’s imperative to maintein a critic opinions in relation to those kinds of video, filmed by people standing from a long distance in an emocional atmosphere and with cell phones without a good technology to demostrate anything.”
The third video if I’m right is about the National Guard breaking the glasses of a car and shooting in an empty street while people in the buildings yells insults to them hitting their pans (caceroleando) I ask do you see those GN men killing somebody? Do you see them shooting at the people in the buildings or in the streets? THEY’RE ONLY 4 OF THEM THERE. Did you thought maybe they’re bribed to do that? If those men where acting against the law then they surely are prisioners now because the camera caught their faces clearly. THEY DON’T REPRESENT THE NATIONAL GUARD OF MY COUNTRY NOR THE GOVERNMENT.
In relation to the photos, who is the responsable of those photos? Who spreads them? The one where there’s a man with a horrible wound in his right eye doesn’t demostrate who did that wound or how he got it, there isn’t ANY EVIDENCE that demostrate ANYTHING. Now who is the media that reports it? The twitter of Proyecto de Base. Whose them? It’s the twitter of a opposition and caprilist person/group: THEY DEFEND A POLITICAL POSITION.
I recomend checking this person’s tumblr.

Also look at this please. Isn’t this original?
Sure they’re having fun acting as wounded people.
I also recomend reading this page. I warn you right now: it’s a pro-venezuelan media in favor of the democratic government of Nicolás Maduro.
PLEASE STOP SPREADING WAR PROPAGANDA REGARDING VENEZUELA. YOU AREN’T HELPING TO RESOLVE THE PROBLEM, YOU ARE JUST SPREADING MISGUIDED AND INCOMPLETE INFORMATION.
LEAVE THIS TO THE VENEZUELANS LIVING IN VENEZUELA BECAUSE YOU CAN’T TALK IF YOU’RE AREN’T LIVING IT, LIKE ME.
STOP BEGGING FOR HELP TO OTHER COUNTRIES BECAUSE YOU CAN’T WIN AN ELECTION IN A DEMOCRACY.
PD: I apologize for my english, is not my native language (: Have a nice day.
