Default I Declare War On Wikipedia!!!!

chicanos, pochos, cyber vatos, robo-techno barrio girls OYE!!!

some 'quasi intelligent' group of supposed chicanos came together in their academic world views and tried to 'define' chicanoon wikipedia. i have attacked by adding an oral tradition aspect and directly challenging the moderator groups on their definition of 'chicano.'

in my upbringing around many elders and vecinos in the rio grande valley of new mexico, chicano was who we were, chicano was the essence of our being, our mixed blood heritage, our new world culture, our landscape passed down orally whether in the fields or in the city, stories some sadly lost to time. Wikipedia is trying to classify chicano, as an insult, classify us as objects in a museum. relics of a revolutionary past they say chicano is.

gentrification has rooted itself in the barrios, our 'assimilation' is almost complete, for we have done what others have long sought, declared war upon ourselves. now the cyber world is joining in and delineating chicano as simply an antiquated call to arms. WILL WE CONTINUE TO ALLOW THIS SYSTEMATIC DESTRUCTION NOT ONLY OF OUR YOUNG VATOS TRAPPED IN THE CYCLE OF VIOLENCE, BUT OUR YOUTH BEING TOLD THAT CHICANO DOES NOT EXIST?

u know im wit chu in a way...
but dont u think that something "la raza" gives reason to other to see chicano as nothin but a trouble maker?

is our fault that people relate chicano wit bad news...
we have to change that before, not only on the internet, but all the world changes that idea of us?...
When u realize ur kids have ur same sick sense of humor, u dont know if to be proud or scared????
