6 5 2018. these short sections are the last to be culled from the 2001 MD’s. i edited the raw Dichos for format or punctuation purposes. the entire collection is now in category titled MalDichos. i don’t pretend that there are redeeming qualities in taking a non-censorship attitude and allowing vulgar, gender insensitive Dixos to pass into the public realm…but….in my defense, i’ll take Jimi Hendrix’s statement when asked why he played…though i would say destroyed the slave anthem? …. fuck it. i’m an american.

“I believe that there will ultimately be a clash between the oppressed and those who do the oppressing.
