Cesar Chavez:  An American Hero. 

WHY DID I JUST SEE A TRAILER FOR THIS

WHY HAVE WE NOT BEEN TALKING ABOUT THIS!

Now this I want to see.

You know what I hate. Cesar Chavez is an American Hero.  So why doesn’t every body learn about him in school? Because of the concentrated Spanish speaking population in the Southwestern states, folks up North, and in the “South” and on the East coast don’t learn about him.  Or in my case, I think he was mentioned 1 time in 13 years of public schooling. And there is a hefty amount of Spanish speakers in Ohio who I’m sure would have loved for their children learn more about this man.  Only reason I know the bulk of his story is because of college.  And tbh, depending on where the person above was from, I would imagine a lot of people didn’t know that this movie was coming out because it may have been marketed to primarily Latin American communities. And the movie is coming out in MARCH. They had to have been marketing for this somewhere.  All the trailers and previews we see, I aint even heard of this movie until I saw this post on tumblr.  Literally nowhere.  And Michael Peña is one of my favorite actors.  I’ve been following him since before Selena.  I love that he’s been getting great roles recently, and this one is probably his biggest yet.

I doubt if this movie even gets shown near me.  How you going to call somebody an American Hero but aren’t willing to share and promote his story with all of America?

Agreed I ain’t seen a single trailer for this movie, and I NEVER learned about Cesar growing up. Never.

Pre-apocalyptic Gentrification

First the low-rent artists would move in, full of piss and vinegar and resentment and the delusion that they could change the world. Then the startup designers and graphics companies, hoping a sheen of grubby cool would rub off on them. After that would come the questionable gene-peddler storefronts and the fashion pimps and pseudo galleries and latest-thing restaurant openings, with molecular-mix fusion involving dry ice and labmeat and quorn, and daring little garnishes of dwindling species: starling’s tongue pâté had been a fad of late, in such places.
