Lighten up, no really we don’t like ethnic representations


An elementary school in Prescott Arizona  altered a  mural that depicts the faces of its own students. Why?  It has been reported that intolerant antagonizers where driving past the mural and yelling racial slurs, not only that but  city councilman Blair had an issue with it as well. He stated on the radio that when he saw the mural and the fact that the   focal point was a black person one question came to mind “Why?” The spineless jelly fish of administrators who are not only tolerating this bull crap but acceding to it say that it was nothing more than a touch up, brought on by issues stemming from an artistic point of view. That they thought lighter shading represented the kids “coming into the light”.  I agree with the HuffPo reporter there are no two sides to this story, and it’s a shame that the story is not being diffused in a broader manner. I also agree with the fact that the school should have said NO WAY to the ludicrous idea of messing with the way the mural was. Ironic, yesterday on Twitter I read a tweet by someone who said he had gone out to a Mexican restaurant in solidarity, to show support to the business and its owners, he said “If they get rid of them you know who’s next”

AZ Education system:Pre-Colombian studies neither relevant nor necessary


If it’s not associated with Western or Greco-Roman civilization Arizona schools don’t  want to hear it & most certainly do not wan’t to teach it.  It’s not a big deal, you’ll barely notice any changes” were the lies they brazenly told us when approving SB1070, but give them an inch and they’ll take a mile. The disgusting side effects are coming on and strong. Arizona is openly, ignorantly and contemptuously targeting Ethnic studies. Guys you gotta read this awesome article

According to those cynical hypocrites Ethnic studies represent a threat and will lead to exclusion. No I think that’s your job! The truth is that learning about diverse cultures brings togetherness and understanding.  They want to convince us of the exact opposite like were ignorant fools. The article talks about a school that has been teaching Mexican American studies and has seen  the positive affects and the benefits that have been come about for  pupils as a result of being immersed in such studies. Honestly How dare they speak so disparagingly about the desire to expand your mind and perspective . They want  to limit people’s edification with ridiculously bias, selective teaching.

2010 La Nacion Azteca adelante con coraje y passion!


Thanks to freedom of speech & the miracles of technology now every bigoted, obtuse, ignoramus has the ability to spew inane drivel all over the internet.  There are blogs which accuse & ridicule with narrow-mindedness, blogs that write about cholos & cholas, entries with such tittles as “Dirty Mexicans up to no good.”  These blogs are established with the sole intent of slandering and tarnishing us all with blind prejudice.

We’ve had enough!  We’re tired of  being offended!  We are beyond appalled,  feel disheartened at the anti Mexican blogs we read, and would like to say that, seeing such things sadden us.  LOL  Yea  they’d love to hear that, wouldn’t they? Well we have news for them : Not on your life!  Keep it coming!  We love it!  You underestimate us and we love it, because that means that you will never see us coming. We thrive on such feeble tactics. We hear your ignorance &  it drives us, it inspires our ambition, it fuels our fire!  My warrior brothers & sisters of the Aztec nation let us thrive, overcome, conquest & prevail on this the year of our bicentennial. Let us make 2010 the year that Mexicans everywhere show the world their true Aztec Warrior within.

In order to achieve this, let us make this year about : promoting, receiving, and propagating the pursuit  of continuous edification & a never ending thirst for knowledge. A sound education is the key to a brighter future. Let us strive for education in whatever form it maybe.

In 2010 let us show case & represent with ardor the beauty of our culture ,past & present, including our colorful & cool pop culture.  Let’s make it so that  being Mexican may come to be associated with:  gallantry, splendor, refinement, class, non violence, superlative aptitude, and brilliant intellect. Let this be the year that we unite in brotherhood. A year in which we elevate & honor our people & our heritage.  Let us reject all that would do other wise, that which would go against all the hard work & suffering that our fellow warriors realize & endure.  Let us join together with love & respect for one another & help each other out.  We are all in this together.

Let being Mexican be associated with benevolence, contribution, and passionate, earnest, endeavorers. Let Mexicans be associate with warm hearts, a helping hand, and pure, faithful, steadfast  friendships.

In 2010 let us protect and venerate the Mexican woman’s reputation and image.  Make our Aztec princesses gain admiration &  respect through all our achievements, contributions, and commendable actions. Here’s to demonstrating our creativity, originality, ingenuity, and artistry.  To leaving a radiant an awe inspiring legacy. Let us restore the grandeur & sanctity of our land, rescue it from those who blemish it.  Let our land be stripped of the reputation which is associated with a gaudy& cheap tourist destination.   Let this be a year in which we proudly commit to imparting our story  communicating and celebrating our astounding history.

Si se pudo y  Si se pude , y siempre se podrá!  Para el 2010 en el año que nuestra bendita patria cumple su bicentenario vamos a mostrar le a todos esos  soberbios, ignorantes , racistas,  quien es el Mexicano.  Que somos cholos, matones, ignorantes, flojos, criminales, conchudos, drogadictos, malvivientes, rateros, corrientes que solo servimos para llenarnos de niños…..etc. Que somos de una nación muerta de hambre y atrasada, que causamos lastima.  Eso hablan de nosotros. Rompamos en billones de pedacitos hasta que ya no sean roconocibles los esterotipos que se le attribuyen a los Mexicanos. Pues aquí en todo esto esta el reto , y se que su corazon fortificado por sangre de guerreros, y su espíritu apasionado les incitara solo una  respuesta: Yo soy Mexicano y no me rajo!
