Jiddu Krishnamurti- epically handsome, superhumanly wise.
"The fact is there is nothing that you can trust; and that is a terrible fact, whether you like it or not. Psychologically there is nothing in the world, that you can put your faith, your trust, or your belief in. Neither your gods, nor your science can save you, can bring you psychological certainty; and you have to accept that you can trust in absolutely nothing."

Lady Nancy Astor said to Churchill, “If you were my husband, I’d poison your tea,” to which he responded, “Madam, if you were my wife, I’d drink it!”

I know how to solve racism
Trust me, I`m an anthropologist.

I met so many people like this when I studied Anthropology, it actually made me go nuts more than once. Everyone thought that just because they were pursuing this fucking degree they were going to solve ALL THE PROBLEMS and save THOSE POOR NATIVE COMMUNITIES and they were constantly wearing traditional handcrafts from the communities we were studying without quite knowing what they meant. IT WAS LIKE THEY NEVER, EVER HEARD WHAT THE HELL CULTURAL APPROPIATION MEANS.

Kassi tell for you que es cultural appropriation. O se lo entiendo y se que es malo en algunas formas pero la artesania indigena no esta para que los pseudo hippies-mestizos os creamos espirituales y sensibles an etc. I mean uno tiene las estrategias de marketing que puede. Luego entiendo que quien se crea que va a ir a resolver esos problemas puede caer muy mal, hay muchisimos de esos por aqui tambien. OTL

Yo sé, Cuco, en mi región, la gente de las comunidades aymaras se gana la vida gracias al turismo y la venta de artesanías. El problema está en la actitud que muchos de mis compañeros de curso tenían respecto a estas cosas, digo, conseguían que la gente les regalase artesanías en las salidas a terreno o usaban cosas que sabían, por lo que habíamos estudiado, que no deberían estar usando. Digo, si estás APRENDIENDO algo, ÚSALO. TL;DR: que las comunidades vendan sus artesanías para sustentarse: SÍ, ¿qué la gente actúe como idiotas que creen tener una conexión espiritual con ellos gracias a esos objetos?: NO.

#annoying Kasi sdfihsduhsdu CUCO WHAT IS DAT TAG.

Ese tag es porque siempre digo “Cuco se un caballero, porque tienes que estar siempre a favor de los que estan en contra? Can’t yo— REBLOG POST” Enfin, you’re too kind. 
Ahora entiendo mejor tu punto. Urrg detesto eso de la conexion espiritual porque leugo es como que si pensaran que ellos son Magical!Indegenous tan llenos de saberes ancestrales y ESPIRITUALIDAD. Y es verdad, pero es como que los reducen a eso y no ven hum que son comunidades viviendo right here y right now con los mismos (y muchas veces peores) que tiene el resto del país. 
Y entiedo eso de usar cosas que no deberias si son regaladas pero hum no sé en Chile pero creo que ahora muchas de las comunidades ya estan mas organizadas en como quieren vivir su cultura. Pero si es como dices es muy triste que los chicos latinos engamos a tener tambien complejo de antropologos con white man’s burden. Seguro que los hay tambien en ecuador.

Federico Garcia Lorca (5 June 1898 – 19 August 1936). Spanish poet and dramatist, most famous for writing the poetry collection Romancero gitano (1928), and the play Bodas de sangre (written 1932). Both works refer to and were inspired by gypsy culture and flamenco, which make perfect sense because he was born in Granada, Andalusia, where flamenco and gypsy culture were most prevalent. While studying in Madrid he became close friends with two other notable figures of Spanish modern art: the painter Salvador Dali, and the filmmaker Luis Bunuel. The friendship between Dali and Lorca was especially close, though later events in their lives would cause the friendship to fragment.Politically-minded on top of being artistic, he met an untimely death when he was executed during the Spanish Civil War.So: poet, dramatist, activist. A dynamite combination under any circumstance, but he’s Spanish. And gorgeous. Look at those eyes! They’re killer!
