Two places at once.


I'm posting an old entry of mine from 2008, I wrote explaining about the frustration I felt about being a hispanic american.  I posted pictures of the Arizona Suns because their jerseys were changed to say "Los Suns."  I'm proud they are standing up to the law passed recently in Arizona. 

You walk the streets of your city.  You say your city like the way Americans say "their country."  You never really feel right saying- my country.  Because for some reason looking Mexican means you can't be American.  Still, you try at least.  You try, like no one else on earth tries, to be in two places at once.

Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone.
