as the world turns, another Haitian president gets eliminated, this time in a hail of bullets..and the world rolls out its usual bullshit, “ohh, pooor Haiti, when will it ever get its shit together?..let us pray”..and the neocolonial beat goes on. The big banana man, as was one of handles, became president and it seems he pissed everyone off, the Haitian people seemed to not like him, he was despised by the folks who truly rule Haiti, the of gangster Haitian elite, who keep all the money and what do the people get?..UN care packages..the Euro/Canadian/Gringo multinationals that have been sucking the country dry of every motherfucking natural resource that these pendejos/as/x can profit from, along with the fact that Haiti has been a national sweatshop for many, many, many years now (just look at some of shit y’all buy, capitalist consumers of the global north), and of course the neocolonial players in DC, Paris, London, Berlin, et al..so why did he universally piss everyone off? Apparently, due to the horrific chaos in Haitian politics (dissolved Parliament, local elections postponed, etc) the big banana man, who had made a humongous fortune as a banana exporter, seemingly making him part of the gangster Haitian elite, had some apparent delusions of grandeur, seeing the sorry state of the political scene, which he contributed to in many ways. He sought to expand his presidential powers, assuming a virtual vise grip on Haitian politics..not a good career move! The gangster cabal of the local elites, the multinationals, and their global north political socios, who are themselves presidents, prime ministers, chancellors..what ever bullshit title that’s been concocted for them, gave him his letter of termination of employment, gangster style..another Haitian president who simply bit too much that he could chew and was gunned down like a dog because of it…what make this most recent blood splattered paragraph in Haitian history so infuriating is that the Haitian people don’t deserve this..they should be ceaselessly celebrated by all freedom living peoples of the global south (fuck the global north)..they are the children of the only successful slave rebellion in world history, the Haitian Revolution…and they’ve been paying the price for this remarkable achievement (twisted, yes?) but that’s how these planetary gangster capitalists play..so mi gente, this is El Coqui que Habla’s two cents. Que Viva la nation de Haiti! Que Viva la Revolucion Haitiana! Y con Dios y Haitianos de moral, virtud, justicia, no vendido, y ponen su pueblo de frente, que la Patria/Pueblo Haitiano algun dia viva en prosperidad collectiva y Paz, mas temprano que tarde…anima Mundi o Muerte, Venceremos!

buen dia de pandemia mi gente. Just finished my run in morningside park and just now saw breaking news from NYT..”The world’s known coronavirus death toll surpassed four million, as countries struggle with spread of variants and unequal access to vaccines. It took nine months for the virus to claim one million lives, and the pace has quickened since then. The second million were lost in three and a half months, and the fourth in about two and a half months…” I’m not a fan of the NYT, it’s just another gangster capitalist rag to me but after reading this breaking news, shivers went up and down my spine. Planetary capitalist gangsterism had succeeded enormously. It allowed for the systematic ethnic cleansing numerous regions of the global south and their global north outposts, while making astronomical profits via the vaccines and its criminally negligent enforcement of intellectual property rights in the face of a deadly global pandemic! If you don’t see this grotesque reality, you are just as heartless, cruel, and murderous as the planetary capitalist gangsters. So, mi gente, a lot to ponder regarding our global capitalist gangster behavior and what is necessary to flip this fucked up script in order to give us and Mother Earth a chance..anima Mundi o Muerte, Venceremos 🙏🏽🪘😷❤️✊🏽

hola mi gente! Viernes social/de pandemia..I’ve been going through a job hunting process, have had several interviews and I can categorically state that the nonprofit industrial complex has become a toxic waste site. From LinkedIn to all the nfp membership organizations, the npic is populated by neoliberal/neocolonial bipocs and closet white supremacists! Que combinacion de hijos/as de pu….had a so-called interview this morning with a weak ass example of bipoc malehood. To make a short story shorter, this pendejo was ignorant, ill informed, condescending and arrogant..and those were his good qualities!! Que PENDEJO!!! To translate a wise Latinx maxim,” You’re missing what I have in abundance!” This nonevent encapsulates what is so disturbing about the npic, there exists a class of bipoc bourgeoisie that have been given the opportunity by their white masters/handlers to become the next generation of misleadership. Now, please understand that the current crop of bipoc npic misleaders continues to meander its way, collecting six figure compensation packages while their frontline staff is struggling to put food on the table and a roof over their heads (if they even have a roof), and the communities they purport to serve remain oppressed, repressed, and depressed. And let’s not even talk about their white colleagues…white supremacy encased in a paternalistic, neoliberal veneer..saltine crackers who watch “the wire” to learn about the ‘hood..I mean, really you neoliberal crackers..estan de pinga, carajo!..and your bipoc breathren as well..this is how the planetary capitalist gangsters maintain their death grip on the world..they foster generation after generation after generation of bipoc misleaders to be gatekeepers in their respective communities, systematically thwarting any level of resistance/revolution/dissent and maintaining the status quo..bipoc technocrats from hell!!! I realize that no one will hire me because the people that I have encountered during this process are everything I’ve written about above…and even worse! And because of this…que se vayan toditos p’al carajo en chancletas!! Let us, the people begin to take back our communities from the npic and its papa/mama, planetary capitalist gangsterism. Remember the Black Panthers ( nooo, not that stupid, pandering movie)..the real BPs..they created an entire human service infrastructure from nothing…free nutrition, education, healthcare, etc..all community based and not beholden to any private or public funding source (our tax dollars are subsidizing the extravagant compensation packages of the npic misleaders/losers)..the human service infrastructure the BPs developed was wholly supported by the communities they were serving..with no six figure CEO pendejo/a/x in sight!!! The npic appropriated the BPs’ human service infrastructure concept and twisted it conform to planetary gangster capitalist principles (oh but wait, these cabrones/as/x have no principles, scruples, etc.)..all they do is talk a good game, drenched in total bullshit..you see, mi gente, they are what they because they’re slaves to their funding sources, public and private…slaves to the political class..while they enslave their workers and the communities they purportedly serve..and one last thing, when a pendejo condescendingly tells you that you should have studied his website to prepare for an interview with him please tell him to go fuck himself and his pinche website! The only intelligent thing he said was “ohh, I can see this won’t be a good fit.”…no shit Sherlock!!! like the saying goes “a ti te faltas lo que a mi me sobra…sabor!!! Cuidense mi gente..anima Mundi o muerte, Venceremos!🙏🏽🪘✊🏽✌🏽❤️🌼⚽️

Juntos con el IDF..bought and paid for by your tax dollars.. When will you goddamn gringos wake up and understand that as a nation, each and every one of you have the blood of bipoc innocents smeared all over yourselves!! Toditos, toditos, toditos, gringos pendejos/as/x..i do not subscribe to letting the american people off the hook and just blame the government, noooo! All of you pinche gringos are war criminals, mass murderers, assesinos for allowing the bipoc global South be ravaged, raped and mutilated by graduates of West Point and the School of the Americas, both universities where torture and the mass murder of innocent bipocs are the primary curriculum..just as Smedley Butler..but don’t ask Donald Rumsfeld, Condi Rice, General Colin Powell, G dubya and company, a pack of mangy, remorseless, bloodthirsty genocidalists/nation destroyers..when will their day of reckoning arrive..I think it’s going to be really, really, really hot where they’re going when their expiration dates arrive..just ask Donald R…anima Mundi o Muerte…Venceremos 🙏🏽✊🏽✌🏽🪘🌼❤️

In honor of Nelson Gonzalez, Taino/Afro/Boricua Warrior..

..or as in the movie “Carlito’s Way”..the last of the MoRicans..when your son, George informed me of your passage “al Mundo de la Verdad” I cried..and cried..and cried..(I’m crying now as I write this)..por encima de todo, you were one of the kindest, sweetest, wisest, and prettiest Boricuas I’ve ever encountered..yes, prettiest!!!..those guaracha dancing eyes and snow white mane, along with your ultra gentlemanly ways made you “El Bravo de la Pelicula”..always and forever..you treated me like a son, always having positive, uplifting words of compassionate encouragement during my endless seasons of sadness known as major depressive disorder..and for that you will forever be in my heart…descansa en Paz y Poder, mi Guerrero..🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🪘❤️❤️❤️🌼🌼🌼✊🏽✊🏽✊🏽

capitalism as planetary gangsterism/pt21(morningside park edition)

Happy Tuesday to one and all, I recently returned from my daily 6am/5 mile run through the principal trail of morningside park, feel good, a very meditative experience while listening to los munequitos de matanzas, que chevere! A disturbing and chronic concern regarding the park is the number of homeless folks sleeping there. In natural fact, it is 100% unacceptable that this city, this country has such craven disregard for the safety and well-being of ALL Humans! Yet, this goes to the heart of planetary capitalist gangsterism. We are not viewed as human beings but as consumers of materialistic bullshit and throughly dehumanized in the process. This dehumanization process is a procedural necessity for the capitalist gangster class (that inhabit Wall Street, aka the Lords of Capital) in order to maximize the results of their ceaseless thuggery. Why doesn’t cuomo el mayordomo and his bro, Chrissy Chris personally come to the park and converse with these brothers (hey Chrissy Chris, bring pen, paper, your laptop and a camera crew…do some actual journalism for a change..remember how that felt before you became prime time Chrissy? and your bro, cuomo el mayordomo, how come your people along with Billie d (no, not our brother Williams) can’t get together and figure out a legitimate, sustainable path for our homeless brothers and sisters, two spirits, et al out of homelessness and into safe, clean permanent housing. In fact, why don’t you (and the future mayor) figure out a path toward universal housing and healthcare for ALL of NEW YORK CiTy and STATE!! You would certainly earning your pay instead of wasting your time writing useless literature like your American Leadership missive..99% bullshit, the other 1%, your name on cover, legit..seems to match the 1% you constantly yammer about rubbing shoulders with in the hamptons, fire island, or wherever the local capitalist gangsters you hang out with shoot the shit. I was reading somewhere that the number of humans that have been displaced from their homes, their godforsaken countries, due to war, famine, disease, climate derangement, corrupt governments, overthrown governments, etc, has dangerously increased to never before seen numbers, creating a host of horrific consequences for them and for Mother Earth. Did those neocolonial assholes, the g7 come up with any plan or pathway to humanely solve this sickening dilemma? Like Hommy said, “I don’t think so…ahora, all you local and national politicos, don’t you see homelessness as a pernicious form of internal/domestic displacement? Can you please stop bullshitting about how complex and difficult it is to remedy and put in the necessary resources for a local/national push for universal, safe housing for ALL! Make yourselves useful for Christ’s sake, and serve the people..ALL THE PEOPLE not just the donor class that bankroll your incessant, boring ass, amateurish campaigning…have a great Tuesday for the three persons that may read this!….anima Mundi o Muerte, Venceremos 🪘🙏🏽❤️🌼

Feliz lunes de pandemia …since my last post on Tuesday I’ve felt dark, formless clouds hovering around the world..esto vas hacer un arroz con culo papa. Before we go there tho, went to this wonderful exhibit at the Met called Arte del Mar- Art of the Early Caribbean..que belleza! To be surrounded by breathtaking artistry created by the Taino peoples, amongst other Caribbean based indigenous communities, ALL being MY ANCESTORS! To quote the exhibit’s guide, written by James A. Doyle, “Synonymous with tropical paradise, the Caribbean connected a range of diverse societies for thousands of years before Europeans infamously arrived in the late fifteenth century..The story of the indigenous Caribbean peoples is a shared artistic narrative of ritual knowledge, ceremony, and political power. Just like the raptors prominent in their mythology, these peoples migrated throughout the region, trading materials and ideas from island to coastline and back again across a rich network of maritime exchange…scholarship in this area has focused on the sculptural traditions of the societies known collectively as Tainos, who inhabited the Greater Antilles. Expanding on this knowledge, new archaeological, ethnohistorical, and art historical research has deepened our understanding of the rise of Taino civilizations as well as their long-standing connections with peoples along the coast, from Venezuela to Mexico..We now know, for example, that before Europeans arrived, Caribbean societies formed a vast, interconnected, multilingual network characterized by complex relationships among neighbors and distant contacts alike. Alongside their better-known Taino peers, societies such as the Tairona from Colombia, the diverse kingdoms in Veraguas, Panama, and the communities in the Ulua Valley, Honduras have begun to come into clearer focus.” Mr. Doyle goes on about the devastating consequences for these peoples when contact was made with the ambassador for planetary capitalist gangsterism, Christopher Columbus and his cabal of merciless murderers, thieves and socio/psychopaths, the literal scum of the earth. These European gangsters carved an unimaginable, stomach turning swath of mayhem, chaos, genocide, rape, torture and barbarism through this peaceful network of indigenous communities, in the name of and with the blessing of the Vatican (why the fuck do we continue to associate ourselves with the den of mass murderers known as the Catholic Church, han sido hijos/as de sus putisimas madres que les pario!!)..we are over 500 years (and counting) still suffering the sickening consequences of this crime against humanity known as European colonialism and its bastard offspring, the United States of America and its white supremacist, settler colonial regimen of mass murder, mayhem, and barbarism that sickenly exists on a planetary scale, unabated…anima Mundi or muerte, Venceremos..🪘🙏🏽✊🏽❤️🌼😷

feliz martes familia..the teachings of the Buddha are called The Lion’s Roar..teachings of unshakeable freedom and fearlessness..the application of these teachings in daily life gives one the opportunity to actually taste that freedom and fearlessness (I speak from the perspective of one who has been slowly acquiring that sweet, sublime taste!..it’s taken 62 years, many of pain, suffering and struggle..I love it!!) the times of the historical Buddha were corrupt, debased, ultra materialistic, segregated by class/caste, the untouchables slept in the streets amid the squalor, open sewage and waste, ignored and rendered invisible..the brahmins, the wealthy class were far removed from the unimaginable poverty, pain and suffering of the untouchables and the rest of society..a carbon (or more accurately, digitized) copy of 21th century life!! and yet this pathway to unshakeable freedom and fearlessness is open to us ALL..the Lion’s Roar..powerful, powerful, powerful medicine for mind, body, spirit..a potential vaccine against the plague of planetary capitalist gangsterism…similar to Liberation Theology, the activist christian priests and nuns who applied the teachings of the gospel of Jesus in their work with the poorest/oppressed communities of America Latina. Their ethos is that the poorest not only should be cared for but allowed to experience the fullness of human flourishing..the highest heresy to the Lords of Capital..they were in gear during the 1960s and beyond..this bold, humanistic clerical movement based upon love, compassion and empowerment was then systematically crushed by the Vatican, with tactical support from the CIA..these clergy people were systematically tortured, raped and murdered..pure, unmitigated barbarism, emanating from spaces of unspeakable inhumanity, the White House, the Pentagon, Congress, etc- the masters of full spectrum mass murder..their murders, among the endless barbarism of planetary capitalist gangsterism haven’t stopped those of us who are fearless seekers of equity and justice in the world….the Lion’s Roar and Liberation Theology…honorable, time tested ways of life that give us ALL the opportunity to experience that sweet, sublime taste of freedom and liberation..much to the horror of the planetary capitalist gangsters…O Luta Continua..Anima Mundi o Muerte…Venceremos!!🙏🏽🪘❤️

buenas tardes familia, I just finished reading 2 articles about NYC, the abysmal fiasco of THRIVE NYC, an allegedly innovative initiative toward addressing mental health issues and the class/caste entrenched segregation of its school system..now let me be clear, as a life long New Yorker, I can categorically state that NYC is a global epicenter of social/racial/economic inequality, unsurprisingly so. when you look past the I LUV NYC or NY TOUGH marketing campaigns concocted you see an apartheid city within an apartheid state within an apartheid nation. the white settler/colonist/segregationist origins/foundations of the USA are mirrored in NYC’s social/economic/cultural realities. mental illness is a consequence of the intergenerational traumatic, toxic, dehumanizing nature of capitalism. the perfect vehicle for the endless reproduction of this structural dehumanization is NYC’s educational system. These are realities NO ONE ever talks about- the profoundly dis-ease producing nature of our socioeconomic system..what in Allah’s name do you expect when a nation is built upon the foundational principles of racism, materialism, and militarism?. a society of compassionate, caring, sane, well adjusted humans? how can that even be considered when the american way of life is patently INSANE?!!!..we are what we think, with our thoughts we make the world..and you’re still perplexed why this city and this country is so stuck in a dark, deep mire of SHIT!? if you can’t smell it you need a seriously large jar of Vicks up your nose to clear out your mental snots!!! El viruz es el capitalismo…🙏🏽🥷🏽❤️🌄

buenas noches familia, otro sabado social/de pandemia..some more melodramatic telenovela action out of your nation’s capital and beyond..the g7 huddling up in England..see their photo-ops, the whitest cabal of planetary capitalist gangsters (yes, the Japanese are Asia’s crackers)..the g7 is responsible for the ongoing economic underdevelopment/rape of the global south, its people and abundantly rich natural resources..haven’t these past 500+ years (and counting) taught us anything other than the planetary gangsterism of capitalism and who the gangsters were, are and continue to be??..with this reality, the Haitian Revolution, the Cuban Revolution, the Chilean Revolution, the Vietnamese victory over the french/gringo tag team fiasco, the Chavista/Bolivarian Revolution, et al, have shown us that these gangsters can be defeated, that these planetary capitalist gangsters, with all their guns, bombs and assorted accessories of Suffering and Death are powerless against the organized, unrelenting, implacable, unassailable, indomitable will of freedom and justice loving people!!! In the end, these gangsters are merely flesh and blood just like us, and therefore can be destroyed!!! “we are what we think, with our thoughts we make the world.”..so, as you can see, ultimately it is up to YOU, ME, ALL of US to say Basta YA, CRIMINALES contra LA HUMANIDAD y la MADRE TIERRA!!…ANIMA MUNDI o MUERTE, VENCEREMOS!!! SI SE PUEDE CARAJO!!!!!..HASTA LA VICTORIA…🙏🏽❤️🌼🪘✊🏽
