I could not find a better opportunity to talk about what I think, what made me think not only this video for “Calle 13, Latin America” but what made me think a conversation I heard between two women two days ago. When I was sitting at a bus station, of course they never suspected that I was able to understand a little their perfect English. Among their repeated complaints about the dirty streets, the lack of services in some parts of the city I mean everything that means the bad called “third world” I could not avoid feel uncomfortable with all what I was listening but what I most seemed outrageous was when a couple arrived to the bus station she was a Latin woman and he an American man with their beautiful children and these two ladies said: “I think she married him to improve her race”
For a moment I thought tell them that I had understood their conversation but then I realized that these two women are only the result of a system that is determined to show the world that Latins are inferior, politicians of our country have governed receiving orders from outside. When we are going to stop to diference people for their race, country,
When will we stop labeling people by race, nationality, religion? when this world will break frontiers? and will dare to respect and love, I never liked to blame only the system for all the world ills because I believe that each of us can make a better world…
This video makes me feel more than ever proud and happy to be Latino, but not better or less than others.
