Writing Less

It has been many years that I have posted so infrequently on my blog. I have gone through a great deal of change this year, and I am continuing to go through some changes. Emi’s accident earlier this year led to a great deal of reflection. As I started thinking over the past few months, [...]

Published in Ban This! (An Anthology)

One of my pieces was published in this anthology. For those that keep up with this blog, I’ve been really busy, but hope to post something soon. I wanted to write on the framework for “handouts” versus “human rights,” and maybe the Chick-Fil-A controversery. Order the book on Amazon, if you are interested. Book Description: [...]

Victory Over University of Houston Chicano Mural

Rather than doing my own write up, I’d rather post the words of these two individuals.  They along with Mario Gonzales, one of the original artists of the mural, worked very hard to ensure that the mural was kept in tact.  I do have to give particular credit to Professor Cano for identifying the potential [...]

Statement Of Solidarity With 287(g) Press Conference

Though I can’t be there in person, I stand with you in spirit in your efforts to denounce Sheriff Adrian Garcia’s efforts to seek more funding for the nefarious 287(g) program. This is the same program which allowed for the abuses perpetrated by Joe Arpaio in Arizona; it is the same policy which has contributed [...]

Thoughts On Chicano Mural At U Houston

The mural at the University of Houston’s University Center is an icon. The mural showcases leaders of the Chicano Movement along with Uncle Sam in the middle as the embodiment of a calavera. Different historical images of Mexican history are painted throughout the mural. It is a political statement as much as anything else, but [...]

Please sign this petition, which we plan to use in organizing to make sure that the mural stays up. Sign the petition [...]

Recap of Mexica Church Meeting

Compas, I wanted to take some time to recap my understanding of what we discussed at our first meeting.  The subject of our meeting was the need for an idea like the Mexica Church (or whatever we will call it).  What we decided was that some of us will continue investing some time to see [...]

Why A “Mexica Church?”

I have spoken to some over the past many years and months about the need to be able to communicate the principles of Mexicayotl to the people. Mexicayotl is the spirit behind the rebirth of indigenous traditions, conscience and spirituality. In many cases, it is the spirit behind Danza Azteca, Temazcales (sweat lodges), and ceremonias. I have even mentioned to some the idea of a [...]

Group I Debated, FAIR, Outed As White Nationalist Group

Several months ago, I debated someone from FAIR live on 740 AM. I did not know at that time, what many are reporting today. Apparently, one of the founders is an ardent white nationalist. Just under three months ago, an article exposing John Tanton as the white nationalist founder of the modern day anti-immigrant movement [...]
