One Amazing Thing I've Done

so much...

Teach, Learn, Share

parkour, appreciation for music, veganism/food justice, good conversation, etc.http://upsettingthesetupsince1977.blogspot.com/inspired by my last (and current) visit to latin america:http://www.jrank.org/cultures/pages/3652/Blanqueamiento.htmlexcerpts from immortal technique's "third world" song:-"I’m from where people pray to the gods of they conquerors,And practically every presidents a money launderer..."-"I’m from where the Catholic church is some racist shit,They helped Europe and America rape this bitch,They pray to white Spanish Jesus who’s face is this?,But never talk about the black pope Gelasius..."-"From where blacks, indigenous peoples and Asians,Were once slaves of the Caucasians,And it’s amazing how they trained them,To be racist against themselves in the place they was raised in,You kept us caged in,Destroyed our culture and said that you civilised us,Raped our women and when we were born, you despised us,Gentrified us, agent provocateur divide us,And crucified every revolutionary messiah,So i’m a start a global riot..."http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_gSLdyheiVk
