Rise Chicano

Arise from the shadow of nothingness

arise from the neverending nada of servitude

The problem is that we live by other people’s words. 

We think we are, what they think we are.

Hollywood and sociologists have tried so hard to do us in. 

So rise and step out, from the long night of denial.

Chicano, dont let the ignorance of man command your conscious. 

Arise and tell your neighbor the news:

let the few become many.

Remember this: you are free to act, but you must act to be free.

So whats it gonna be?

Do we stand, or remind forever dead and dying?

The border fence that divides the Mexican people was born on February 2nd, 1848 with the signing of the Guadalupe Hidalgo treaty. A treaty that was never honored and restitution to this day has never been made. 
Did you know that in 1915 there were Chicano lynching?
"This land was Mexican once, was Indian always and is, and will be again."
This is my tierra natal. 
"I search for our essential dignity as a people, a people with a greater sense of purpose, to belong and contribute to something greater than our pueblo
I seek to recover and reshape my spiritual identity.”
A misinformed people is a subjugated people. 
I am in all cultures at the same time, alma entre dos mundos.

 patriotism of the Latin American community.

"Instead of bitching about people singing this in another language, we should be thankful that people of Latin heritage have our fucking backs and are PROUD to be American just like anyone who speaks English.

Personally, if they sang this in Chinese or German, it would still make me proud to be an American.

Get the fuck over it and stop being a xenophobic douche bag. Just because you only speak English does not mean you love this country more than someone who doesn’t.”-Some dude off YouTube…
