  • 160407 From Tacloban to Kidapawan: Blaming the victim by Jayeel Serrano Cornelio and Veronica de Leon Gregorio rappler.com - "Nobody takes to the streets on a whim. People cannot be simply deceived to take the heat and then the bullet. If at all, to protest, inasmuch as it can be violent, is paradoxically the last and perhaps only resort of the poor. When elected officials and bureaucrats fail to provide the most basic support, they betray the social contract between electorate and government."
  • 160426 Is it vote-buying or helping people? inquirer.net - “It is a form of symbolic violence against the poor … when you talk of the poor as ‘bobotante,’ without us understanding the particular circumstances in their respective communities. We need to be more sensitive to that,” he said.

Costco fuels my insatiability and cultivates curiosity within me at a cellular level. Encoded to immerse myself in the unknown, I find it difficult to complacently accept the “what”; I want to hunt for the “whys” and dissect the “hows”. In essence, I subsist on discovery."

But if you would focus only on his good looks and boyish charm, you are helping dumb down your audience.” | Netizens have the power to make stories viral but journalists have the responsibility to substantiate them. | The media has the capability to tackle issues beyond face value. Thanks to Carrot Man, we hope some will start to ask the right questions. Who is Jeyrick Sigmaton and why is he stuck at the farm hauling carrots at age 21? Why did he drop out of school? How much does he earn? | And in the food basket of Luzon, why are farmers like Jeyrick poor?

  • "Colonization does not, after all, affect people only economically. More fundamentally, it affects a people’s understanding of their universe, their place within that universe, the kinds of values they must embrace and actions they must make to remain safe and whole within that universe. In short, colonization alters both the individual’s and the group’s sense of identity. Loss of identity is a major dimension of alienation, and when severe enough it can lead to individual and group death. When an individual’s sense of self is… distorted by the impact of contradictory points of view, colonization and its terrible effects will not be assuaged by mere retention of land rights and economic self-sufficiency." — Paula Gunn Allen
