Two Mexican Chicano and Mayan poverty scholars died in between 2014 and 2015. Alex Nieto 28, died march 21, 2014 on Bernal Hill in San Francisco, California. He died because of the rich people invading his neighborhood. They called the cops on him when he was sitting down eating his burrito before work. They racially profiled him . Then they killed him shortly afterword.

Dung has more spirit
Than 10,000 white men

Numeral: 400

As in 400

Parts per million

Carbon dioxide
We release
Into the atmosphere,
Among other gases.
Chemical
Warning signs in the sky
We still ignore.
We can't take
The heat
Rising below the clouds.

Watchdog

April 28, 2015

WHAT DID YOU PUT IN YOUR POCKET?

It occurs everyday in this natural food holler:
Something looks suspicious, somewhat askew.
Doesn't look like a Yuppie, probably don't have a dollar.
Any Black man, any poor brother will do.

Like a solid shadow, the watchdog follows his steps
Through neat, crowded aisles of health:
Past free-range chicken, organic kale, turn left
Tailing a brother, walking by himself.

ARE YOU SHOPPING AT OUR STORE? OR STEALING?

RAD is E-RAD-ICATION

In April we went to city hall in San Francisco. Before we went into city hall we were telling our stories at a rally in front.

"Rad is going to privatize all of our poor people housing" said Tiny.

I was determined to run my life

"You can make lots of money.” At this moment the skies opened up and I heard every T crossed and I dotted. His mask of deception seemed almost kind and sincere.
