De la lucha a la locura

En los mítines y marchas de movimientos sociales recientes -particularmente en esta ciudad- se lee con frecuencia lo siguiente: “Luchar, fracasar, volver a luchar, fracasar de nuevo, volver otra vez a la luchar, y así hasta la victoria”, esta cita del reconocido humanista y compasivo líder chino Mao Zedong generalmente se ocupa para animar a la gente a participar en los plantones y movilizaciones, aún cuando éstas a todas luces estén destinadas al fracaso. He aquí la reflexión; ¿como cuántas iteraciones más de ese ciclo se necesitan para llegar a la parte de la “victoria”?
Aquí cabe citar otra frase recurrente en esta clase de actos de “resistencia civil”: “Locura es hacer lo mismo una vez tras otra y esperar resultados diferentes”. La anterior es de A. Einstein, un alemán cualquiera, y aunque se explica sola no está de más apuntar que suele ser empleada para criticar las políticas del gobierno en turno (que, en honor a la verdad, siempre son las mismas que el del turno anterior ocupaba). Ahora bien, si la “victoria” se vislumbra después de emplear por años aquello del “luchar y fracasar”, ¿no sería hora de preguntarse si no es en realidad la “locura” -por llamarla de un modo amable- la que realmente está estorbándole a los movimientos sociales?

I didn’t wanna have to do this but I have been pushed too far.
See the above word? If you are persons other than the race it is used towards, don’t fucking say it. I dont care if you are quarter black on your great grandmother’s side. I don’t care if your ‘homies’ or ‘sistahs’ say it around you. Don’t do it. And to everyone who feels ‘white people’ or ‘cracker’ are equally as offensive. I need you to shut the hell up. This word has been used for centuries to demean and ridicule my people. It was used when we couldnt have an education and spent long hours in the hot sun working for you. It was used when we were finally freed yet kept under an iron fist. It was used when I was 5 years old and a little white boy didn’t want to sit next to me because I was one. And I will be damned if I hear it referring to another black person again. Its awful, hurtful and shouldn’t be in effect today. White people refers to people who are white, like you call us black instead of ’ African American’? Yeah. Cracker is a food product that happens to be white. Instead of trying to force us back into a game of ‘slave and master’ , check your facts, check your privilege and sit your white ass down.
Got a problem? My inbox is open

On a side note, here in México the word “negro” can be used to adress to any dark-skined person, not necessarily an african-american person, and is very common to see pepople using it as a nickname. However, in spanish there are other words that people uses without knowing they’re actually offensive, so I guess I agree.
