“Americans love Mexican food. We consume nachos, tacos, burritos, tortas, enchiladas, tamales and anything resembling Mexican in enormous quantities. We love Mexican beverages, happily knocking back huge amounts of tequila, mezcal and Mexican beer every year. We love Mexican people—as we sure employ a lot of them. Despite our ridiculously hypocritical attitudes towards immigration, we demand that Mexicans cook a large percentage of the food we eat, grow the ingredients we need to make that food, clean our houses, mow our lawns, wash our dishes, look after our children. As any chef will tell you, our entire service economy—the restaurant business as we know it—in most American cities, would collapse overnight without Mexican workers. Some, of course, like to claim that Mexicans are “stealing American jobs”. But in two decades as a chef and employer, I never had ONE American kid walk in my door and apply for a dishwashing job, a porter’s position—or even a job as prep cook. Mexicans do much of the work in this country that Americans, provably, simply won’t do.
We love Mexican drugs. Maybe not you personally, but “we”, as a nation, certainly consume titanic amounts of them—and go to extraordinary lengths and expense to acquire them. We love Mexican music, Mexican beaches, Mexican architecture, interior design, Mexican films.
So, why don’t we love Mexico?”
"In the service of our appetites, we spend billions and billions of dollars each year on Mexican drugs—while at the same time spending billions and billions more trying to prevent those drugs from reaching us. The effect on our society is everywhere to be seen. Whether it’s kids nodding off and overdosing in small town Vermont, gang violence in LA, burned out neighborhoods in Detroit— it’s there to see. What we don’t see, however, haven’t really noticed, and don’t seem to much care about, is the 80,000 dead—mostly innocent victims in Mexico, just in the past few years. 80,000 dead. 80,000 families who’ve been touched directly by the so-called “War On Drugs”.
Mexico. Our brother from another mother. A country, with whom, like it or not, we are inexorably, deeply involved, in a close but often uncomfortable embrace.”
Darren Hunt of Utah
The murder of young Black Men by police continues.
oh for fucks SAKE
Y’all he was shot in the back…. HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK…
He was carrying a sword? This mf in my geography class carried a sword to class everyday and when I expressed my discomfort it was dismissed. But this brotha was shot in the back.
and it was a blunted sword.. couldn’t have cut anybody… but white people walking around with loaded rifles in target…
Exactly! This is evil.
Damn. Niggas can’t even cosplay anymore? I would love to see the cosplay community say something about this but that definitely won’t happen
Also: this paper is edited by a clown. It should’ve been in the first fucking paragraph that this dude was cosplaying. I’m reading this shit wondering why the fuck this negro is walking down the street with a sword and obvious answer is hidden almost at the en of the article.
This dude was cosplaying.
He was dressed up in a costume.
Should all black people just stay home on Halloween this year?
Friendly reminder that the police shot a black cosplayer in the back
From the article linked above (my emphasis):
Hunt was shot and killed Wednesday. A statement from the Utah County attorney’s office on Saturday said, “Preliminary evidence suggests that Mr. Hunt brandished the sword and lunged toward the officers with the sword, at which time Mr. Hunt was shot.” Police had described it as a samurai sword.
The Hunts’ attorney, Randall Edwards, said in a statement that an independent autopsy revealed that Hunt was shot numerous times, “all from the rear.”
Like come the fuck on… a black cosplayer is going to “lunge” at police? That is some fake as hell backtracking. I honestly don’t believe ANYONE who claims a black person in their right mind/not suffering from mental illness was shot because they made the first violent move against a police officer. We ALL KNOW the cops have lethal weapons, no hesitation about shooting to kill, and will face no legal penalties for the death of a black person.
Also, I’m disappointed but not surprised that Darrien Hunt’s white aunt only admitted racism and antiblack police violence exists when her own family member was murdered by a cop (also from article linked above: Moss, a white aunt, said she has tended not to believe stories by her sister’s family of mistreatment of blacks in today’s world, “and I don’t like it when the race card is played. It’s easy for us as whites to dismiss it.” But Moss says her view changed in recent days as the family has tried to figure out what happened in the shooting, and she watched personally how some of her black nephews and nieces are treated). Like… huh, ya think?
carve this into my fucking tomb

Industrial goth dance groups are having a good time

Common is so imporant.
I have a very vivid memory from college of tripping on some kind of obscure designer psychdelic chemical with mashedpotatoesandcellophane/Aja and talking about how Common has the most beautiful, smooth, glowing skin
Sometimes I get really frustrated with aspects of my life but then I remember that I have been able to surround myself with so many interesting, creative dynamic people who work super hard at making and doing cool stuff that makes the world more interesting and fun and I am very very happy with that. There are a lot of things that are less than ideal but I’m so grateful I’ve been able to cultivate this life for myself.
