Conference on International Mother Language Day

I will be giving a conference on Wednesday February 21st, 2018 on the occasion of the International Mother Language Day at the Consulate of Mexico in Laredo, Texas at 10:00 am.

My lecture will cover basic (but still interesting) aspects of the importance of natives languages. A language helps shape a person and a culture, and Mexican indigenous languages have do

ne so in modern times and around the world — with words like chocolate, avocado, tomato amongst others.


It will also focus on how native languages have formed a Mexican identity since millenia ago. Nahuatl being the most important generator of words for Mexican culture and Spanish language, including the word “Mexico” itself, yet there are other languages who have also given identity to the Mexican people.

Finally, the highlight of the conference will be the indigenous languages which were once spoken in Southern Texas and Northeastern Mexico — mostly those around the Laredo area and along this part of the Rio Grande river cultural area.

A Greek goddess in a French Avenue is one of Mexico’s most cherished image.

Photo I shot at Mexico City.

Reality can and will surpass fiction.

One would think of the Virgin of Guadalupe or the so-called Aztec Calendar, but reality can and will surpass fiction — a Greek goddess in a French Avenue is indeed one of the most cherished and easily identified symbol of the Mexican people. This statue ironically represents the surrealism of Mexico.

The statue was put at the top of a tall column to celebrate in 1910 the 100 aniversary of the Independence of Mexico. Built by then President Porfirio Diaz — considered to be one of the longest serving dictators not only in Mexican history but in all of Latin America. The column crowned with its golden statue is located at the most iconic streets of all of Mexico, Paseo de la Reforma.

Paseo de la Reforma was built by Maximilian, Emperor of Mexico, which under the French Empire’s auspice and patronage he ruled the Second Mexican Empire. It is somewhat of a copy of Champs Elysee and it is said to be a gift the Emperor gave to his wife, Carlotta. The avenue had (and still has) wide streets, rotundas, small gardens, statues, trees — all of which you would find in modern-day cities but back in mid-19th century Mexico City.

The irony goes further, as the name of this avenue was forcibly put by left-winged liberal president Benito Juarez, who not only killed Emperor Maximilian but toppled the Second Mexican Empire and sieged the Catholic Church through his Laws of Reform. The word Reform became linked to his liberal anti-Catholic ideals. So, as a coup de grace, the famous avenue was named Paseo de la Reforma or Reform Avenue.

On top of that, the original statue was destroyed during the 1957 earthquake. Earthquakes are very common in Mexico City, and a new one was built and the tall column reinforced. So far, it has survived the 1985 and 2017 earthquakes.

Finally, the Greek goddess of Victory is known today as an angel, because of its wings. So we have a Greek goddess who became an angel, at a French avenue with an anti-French name, built by a dictator to honor independence — and this is the symbol of Mexico City and one of the most recognized in all of Mexico. I guess the irony of Mexican history speaks itself.

Why Hollywood hates us Mexicans on film but pretend to like us in real life?

Please explain to me.


Why is it Hollywood hates us Mexicans so much in films series and such in real life but they pretend to like us in real life?

Is it for political reasons? After all, they love to show themselves as modern progressive liberals in the political arena while portraying Mexicans in the most backward ignorantly stereotyped way — which not even conservatives or the alt-right ever expresses.

These liberals rampantly vomit stereotypical imagery of Mexicans.

It is quite shocking the treatment Hollywood takes on with Mexican issues on screen. We can actually see how they relish and enjoy depicting Mexico or the Mexican people in the worst manner. Even historical depictions (as in History, a social science filled with facts) are more often than not fantastical lies. And that’s with history, in fictional movies and series rampantly vomit stereotypical imagery. Remember, these guys are self-proclaimed liberals of progressive views, tolerance-lovers, and adamant SJW defenders of cultural diversity — so they say.

Two-faced Hollywood actors.

In stark contrast, these two-faced Hollywood actors, directors, producers, and media moguls tell off Donald Trump, the alt-right movement, and what they call hillbilly nazi-loving conservatives as being racists against Mexicans. And frankly, apart from political memes and some (((actually))) accurate descriptions of the war and violence in Mexico, I have not seen alt-right people blatantly using unmeasurable economic and manpower resources to insult Mexicans and/or Mexican culture as Hollywood has done.

Trump will leave one day, but Hollywood will remain.

Please explain to me, a Mexican living in Mexico, why a White wealthy actress says she’s liberal and cries — literally — in front of cameras defending Mexicans from the “wrath of Trump” while she and other like her has condoned, conformed, and actively been engaged in multimillion productions where Mexicans are either left out (you don’t see that many Mexican actors in a so-called progressive industry) or are bluntly insulted. It may very well be a cheap charade to present themselves as these cool, suave leftists — and that is way more insulting that whatever policy president Donald Trump have done or may do in the future. After all, Trump will leave office in 7 or 3 years but Hollywood and their evil ploys will remain to denigrate Mexican culture.

Can people be that gullible?

I’ve heard many conspiracy theories about Hollywood, going from being CIA controlled to the all-powerful jewish producers. The reality is, all actors, actresses, directors, writers, and producers in Hollywood who call themselves left-winged progressives are hypocrite liars — plain and simple — and have been racists toward Mexicans and Mexico. What worries me is that Mexicans and American liberals are buying into this movie-worthy drama — and I frankly don’t believe that people can be that gullible.

Mexico is much more than pamphlet SJW racist propaganda with which they attack us with one hand but pretend to defend us with the other. Mexico has a rich culture and millenia-long history. Mexico is a failed state with one of the worst wars ever to not be reported by CNN. This is Mexico, and I can explain you this. But please explain to me why Hollywood hates us while pretending not to.

American Liberals are the real racists

Politically Insurrect.


Americans do look down on Mexicans — but the liberal, “progressive”, and diversity-inclusive Americans. In a race war craze brewing in America for a couple of years, fingerpointing of who hates Mexicans has become a sport for both blue-haired Liberals and dixie Conservatives. For me, as a Mexican, I believe I have the right to think and say who are the ones who really hate us — you can guess which group went ballistic.

Liberals send me to the children’s table while they defend us from the big bad alt-right.

Yes, American Liberals. They believe they are the crusaders of SJW pamphlet ideals, the white knights of the dispossesed, and the mesiahs by having media and Hollywood at their disposal. And however inclusive and diversified they want to present themselves, they have been the only group in the US so adamant in looking down on me or paternalistically dismiss me. I almost feel being sent to the children’s table, as if they “the adults” are defending me from the big bad alt-right.

“You should inform yourself”

I have the theory that for US Liberals we — Mexico — are just a political card for them to play. That card have kept the BLM movement going, the 3rd wave feminism active, and the Welcome Refugees hashtag meaning. I see them in no way actually getting involved in all-things Mexico. This is an irony, since those purple-haired people always shut whatever argument I say with their infamous “you should inform yourself” — and walk away.

I know Mexicans because I am one.

Really? As a Mexican in Mexico I should inform my self more? Being an Anthropologist, at some times a journalist, may even qualify me a bit to give an informed report of what Mexico is and how Mexican society functions (including legal and illegal Mexicans in the US). I know the hardships and pains, also the lazyness and the obession for handouts. I know Mexicans because I am one — I know our strengths and whatever glories we are capable of, just as I know our weaknesses and troubles. What can White Liberals or Black Democrats know about me as a Mexican in order to shoosh me away?

Let him have cake while we discuss this poor creature’s future.

But American Liberals, Democrats, Black Lives Matter and other groups could still believe I still inform just a bit more in order to be accepted into their conversations. It’s almost as if Pharao and High Priests don’t want to talk to us inferior chaste. Funny — they believe (because they’re not) to be left-winged and progressive but have insulted me royally. Let him have cake while we, the high order of the purple-haired pink-hats, discuss the future of this poor creature from the South.

Liberals and Democrats are so visceral to be so into diversity.

When people here in Mexico tell me “Americans hate us” I always answer: “Yes, Liberals”. I understand where Conservatives come from — they believe in protecting their country, their community or their family. When I talk to them, we actually engage in an true conversation. We always surmise that both our governments are at fault — they say they have too much government and I say we have no functional government. But we can agree on stuff! American Liberals and Democrats are so visceral and full of rage, that their diversity conversation stucks at name-calling and deaf ears in benefit of safe space. To me safe space is a first world issue, and they should straighten up and be at least open to hear us the despicable creatures they are trying to save from Trump. Sad.

As the day ends, at the land of the Coahuilteca.

Mobile photo I shot while hiking near the Rio Grande river banks.

The land of the Coahuilteca.

Under this vegetation knapped pieces and paleolithic tools lie since ancient times, once used by the native Coahuilteca people who used to live along the Mexico – Texas border.

A vast land which rivers are the only features and places for survival — the few streams one can find, at least. Not a grassland entirely, but also not quite a desert. Life does appear to survive at the land of bushes, cactus, reeds, and tall grass (like in the image).



For hundreds, perhaps thousands of years ago, this area was already a border area. Back then it was the limit where the Comecrudo (Carrizo) people (east of modern-day Laredo and Nuevo Laredo) and the Coahuilteca lived (west of the two cities).

A land where rivers are the only feature you’ll find, if you find one.

Our ancestors once lived along the Rio Grande. After all, this is a land where rivers are the only feature you’ll find — assuming you can find a stream or a proper river. And the mighty Rio Grande (or Rio Bravo, as the Mexicans call it) is the most important river in the part of the world, and one of the most important in the Americas.

Perhaps that’s why they called it Guanapetnan — which means Big River in Coahuiltecan indigenous language. It is quite understandable to recognize it as “the” big river if you ever travel accross all Texas towards it, or from Central Mexico to the north.

A border — back then and now.

There is evidence of antiquity in this area. I have been informed of many findings at the west side of the two Laredos (both sides of the border, that is). And I have identified a large site southest of Nuevo Laredo or South of Laredo, where the ancient ones once inhabited.

Chronicles from post-contact travelers and expeditions refer to this area as a border zone between the Coahuilteca and the Comecrudo nations. Nowadays, Laredo and Nuevo Laredo are still a border region, where the Guanapetnan or Rio Grande separate the United States (Texas) and Mexico (Tamaulipas).

Hiking where the Coahuilteca and the Comecrudo once hiked.

Although it is a rough terrain and the climate can be an issue in Summer or Winter, the experience can be as rich as hiking in a high mountain forest or a secluded beach — trust me, I’ve done it. To me, being as picky as I consider myself, the hiking trails of the border can be a handful. So you can’t be disappointed — unless you don’t like hiking or nature (or bugs, or the sun).

As with all thing in life, if done with caution hiking in the deep of South Texas or the Mexican side of border can be fun. One can see animal life, interesting plants, erosion formations along the creeks, and all kinds of pebbles.

Hiking in the actual Rio Grande river can be difficult if you’re a newbie, not because of its difficulty in terms of the terrain but because of the overwhelming vigilance of law enforcement. Hey, it’s a border, remember that. Don’t get me wrong… there are parks exactly at the Rio Grande — 2 parks, 1 resting stop and 1 golf course at Laredo, Texas, 4 parks and 1 zoo in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, and 1 park at Colombia, Nuevo León.

But hiking actual trails along the Rio Grande can be difficult, desolate, and expect to be stopped by authorities. I have been stopped by authorities on both sides of the border, and they just ask who you are and what are you’re intentions. Of course, if you’re up to no good, you’ll see it with them — in the US side you have the Border Patrol are omnipresent at those trails and parks, and in Mexico side you have the Mexican Army.

If you ask me, the most dangerous thing you’ll face when hiking in South Texas or Northern Mexico is the heat — hands down. And both Laredo and Nuevo Laredo are famous for their infamous hot weather. Winter is very cold, but nothing a good and sturdy clothing choice can help. But the sun of summer literally kills people every year. Again, if done with caution and at certain hours, you’ll be fine.

Why Liberals focus on deportations and not on issues which led to mass migration?

Please Explain to me.


Please explain to me… why liberals focus their attention on deportations rather than the root cause of people leaving Mexico?

After the deportation of undocumented Jorge Garcia, liberal media and people in the US turn their attention against Trump — as if he was the one president who created or implemented migratory laws. For decades, president after president has deported Mexicans back to their home country. Yes — including president Obama. But lately I’ve noted full batteries against Trump.

I can understand the animosity from liberals and so-called Hispanic groups, but I can’t figure out why they don’t want to see the full picture. They refuse it, actually, to learn the root causes of why illegal immigrants ended inside the Unites States as illegals and as immigrants (which by the way, they are two different terms squeezed as one for some reason by celebrities, Hollywood, and CNN).

A society which no longer functions.

Slowly but surely Mexico has become a failed state. This for one should be a dead giveaway. The USA has as a neighbor a failed state? That should be the first thing a common American should think of — many do thankgoodnes.

As a failed state, Mexico has lost its ability to control huge parts of its own territory (now lost to organized crime), to police and enforce the law (because of the ongoing war and mainly due to corruption, agriculture laid in waste, ecocide is rampant, genocide as well, no economic stability (none at all), dangerous spikes on gas and goods, underpaid industry (which generate jobs) from South Korea, USA, Japan, and Europe, Canadians destroying whatever mines are left, and social degeneracy which had downspiraled to open chaos, broken families, teen pregnancy, and murder.

A society which no longer functions. A government which no longer governs. People are pushed away to flee elsewhere by this self-fullfilling prophecy poverty. With poverty, despair, and no future but death, war, prostitution, or crime Mexicans run away. Everyone can understand why people run, either to be a better person or because they are not good enough to change their country. It is only one of those two reasons — period. But they are not at fault, it is Mexico who is at fault.

American liberals don’t care about Mexico?

So I ask again. Why do Liberals in America don’t want to listen to this? Is it because I am a Mexican in Mexico telling them this? Is it because this has not been said at CNN? Is it perhaps because they just want to quarrel with Trump and use the Mexican card in a political way? Is it because they don’t care about Mexico — its issues and current history?

I believe Liberals don’t like Mexico. And I also suspect they don’t care about illegal immigrants as they care for their political allegiance. If not — please do explain.

This girl is eating pizza by a lake where people gather during the weekends for a stroll, horse-backriding, or enjoy nature’s scenery. During weekdays, people go there to jog or related activities. There are places to eat nearby, especially during the weekends, when people go and visit.

Mexico is the true land of contrasts.

It is ironic that people from all classes share together this huge place, but the lake itself is located in a very upscale residential area — where huge mansions have a view (or even a piece) of the lake. But families from all walks of life gather there to do some picnic, or just relax. Mexico is the true land of contrasts, and this place speaks for itself.

Guadalupe Lake (or Lago de Guadalupe) is located at Cuautitlan Izcalli, in northern Mexico City metro area. A great place to shot sunset photographs, nature pictures, and of course street and candid photos.

Human Era Calendar Date link.

This is a page I created with programming code I wrote showing today’s date according the Holocene Calendar, also known as the Human Era calendar.

Click the image and see today’s date according to the Human Era calendar.


The Human Era calendar:

  • Measures time since Humans began their era on this world.

It counts time since the neolithic began, from which our technological prowess increased exponentially — from the knapping of stone tools and the first construction ever built to our days of quantum computers, CRISPR genetic editing, and the Internet.

  • Negative years are eliminated.

The famous B.C.E. (before current era) years are negative, making it confusing in historical and geological terms. Such difficulty discourages people from fully understanding that huge period of time.

  • It marks a common starting point for the human species.

Whatever race, nationality, or religion, this calendar would be appropriate for everyone. And maybe — just maybe — this would encourage a grater unity amongst the peoples of the world.

  • No major changes except adding 10000 years to our current years.

Contrary to other more precise calendars such as the Mayan Long Count calendar or traditional calendars such as Chinese calendar, the transition would be more smoothly (computer, economic, government and culture-wise) without affecting current months, days, days of the week. The importance is given to add a 1 to the left of whatever Gregorian calendar we use (like our birthdates, anniversaries, official deadlines, and the such).


This is a personal effort from my part to bring awareness of this option to the world. An option to make the people important to this world, and unity as the option to face the future.
