Puerto Rico’s Uprisings Have Empowered a New Leadership Among the Oppressed


The Puerto Rican ‘secret’ the USA wants to keep … ‘Through the debt crisis, as much as the United States tried to maintain its distance, Puerto Rico would finally become a permanent internal problem.”
And that really symbolizes how Puerto Rico is a symbol of marginalized communities all over the U.S. and the world, that the debt crisis in Puerto Rico bears a lot of resemblance to the financial crisis of 2008 where they had all of these bad mortgages that they gave to people who couldn’t afford to pay them back.’

A report by Laura Flanders for Truthout.

The U.S. federal government’s disastrous response to Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria illustrates a longstanding history of an exploitative domestic policy on the island. Recent earthquakes have not only rocked Puerto Rico’s infrastructure but have emphasized the United States’s negligence of its own citizens. Journalist and Columbia University professor, Ed Morales, describes Puerto Rico as the “symbol of marginalized communities all over the U.S. and the world.” He joins activist and scholar Rosa Clemente to discuss the personal and political implications of the island’s ongoing debt crisis, recovery efforts, and an intersectional movement that challenges the political establishment.

Laura Flanders: Rosa, I got to start with you because the last time I was looking at you, you were just back from the Island, you were saying, “We’re looking at a Puerto Rico for finance and not for people.” What does it look…

‘West Side Story’ Review: Sharks vs. Jets vs. Video


Surely on my ‘to watch’ list … ‘Ivo van Hove’s attention-splintering revival of the immortal 1957 musical features new choreography, a ravishing orchestra and smothering visual effect.’

A review by Ben Brantley for The New York Times.

Ivo van Hove’s attention-splintering revival of the immortal 1957 musical features new choreography, a ravishing orchestra and smothering visual effect.

No one should be surprised to hear that Ivo van Hove has blown up “West Side Story.” This industrious, experimental director is celebrated, after all, for taking an artistic detonator to sacred classics — by authors like Shakespeare, Molière, Miller and O’Neill — and letting the pieces fly.

But the blowing up I’m talking about in this curiously unaffecting reimagining of a watershed musical, which opened on Thursday night at the Broadway Theater, is the kind associated with photography, the process by which a picture is enlarged to outsize proportions.

This means that most of the performers onstage here have video doppelgängers, projected on the wall behind them, who are many, many times their natural size. As…

Why do JLo and Shakira’s bums make people uncomfortable?


POWERFUL ASSES … ‘Those major buttocks speak about Afro-Caribbean music—Shakira danced champeta and JLo did the perreo with J. Balvin; they produce discomfort because, as they move those liquid hips, they remind us of the mix we are. They remind us of the Arab heritage as well as that of the Empire, with the slaveholding and painful history that underlies it. They produce discomfort, those bilingual asses, so typical of a sensuality tied to a culture that is so alien and intimidating to the Puritan spirit inscribed in the founding of the United States. ‘ … and more!!

culosIn “¿Por qué incomodan los culos de JLo y Shakira?” Ana Teresa Toro (El País) writes, “JLo and Shakira’s sensual show raises complex questions about women. Do their solid, round, bouncing, glorious asses that move without any qualms make people uncomfortable?” [To understand the underpinnings of this article, it is necessary to get acquainted with specific cultural references, for example, the notoriety of Puerto Rican singer/performer Iris Chacón, her infamous coolant commercial, and perhaps to engage in a re-reading of Luis Rafael Sánchez’s La guaracha del Macho Camacho (Macho Camacho’s Beat)]. Here are just a few excerpts; read the full article in Spanish at El País.

[. . .] Chacón and the long list of performers who have worked on a similar aesthetic—from Tongolele to Sofía Vergara—pose a series of awkward questions both for those who criticize them and those who celebrate them.
