Tucson was visited this week by civil rights activist and octogenarian Dolores Huerta who to the Latino community is someone who is about as close as you can get to being visited by the Blessed (and soon to be Saint) Mother Teresa.
Huerta walked with our saints of the Chicano Rights Movement, people like Cesar Chavez who has reached the status of Martin Luther King in the Chicano community.
Everyone needs a hero.
In a week the nation, Tucson included, will celebrate Irish Pride, and even those who are not Irish will celebrate. St. Patrick is the guy who is famous for what exactly? Something about bringing Christianity to the pagans of Ireland, exorcising the natives of their demonic days, and what better way to celebrate the onslaught of Catholicism than with excessive drinking and debauchery?
The truth is that the day is not so much about St. Patrick but rather celebrating the White Pride of the “Mexicans of the United Kingdom,” the oppressed class that slaves for the richer English state like Mexicans do for the United States; the Irish.
It is on this day that we reflect upon these two great men by taking advantage of the President’s Day Sale at Sam Levitz Furniture and Jim Click Auto, where you have to act fast because these deals won’t last!
It is ironic when White people ask how it would be if we celebrated White Pride, since it has yet another federal holiday known as Columbus Day, which is the cause of many Italian pride celebrations and parades. In Latin America this day is known as “Dia de la Raza” since Columbus Day would be like having a Hitler Day; a day to celebrate genocidal leaders. Why wait and keep Stalin?
