I’m shocked by the bullshit that goes on in Arizona. Its such an incredibly beautiful amazing wonderful state I cannot understand why there is so much deep rooted KKK style hatred. Instead of burning crosses here they allow border crossers to die of dehydration by stomping on water bottles left for them by activists pro their crossing – humanitarians if you will. I gasped when I heard of the two sided battling to kill and battling to save.
But I try to observe and not participate – in order to understand how this negative upside down dynamic works and has worked for many many many disgusting years. There is a cast system firmly in place here as well as even white skinned Mexicans against other darker skinned as well as legal Mexicans vs illegal within their own culture.
What makes one better than the other? I don’t get it.
Oh wait! I do get it! IF YOU ARE WHITE – EVERYTHING’S ALL RIGHT!
My skin is white so therefore I can experience things from both sides. I feel like a spy sometimes around other whites until I feel out how they really feel towards my brown brothers and sisters.
Does it make me ‘underground’? I think so. I like it this way actually. I prefer to observe and empower than to be ‘seen’ for my actions.
As there is a SILENCE here – I also remain SILENT while making my way around to the oppressed and allowing them to VOICE THEIR VOICES AND BE SILENCED NO MORE.
Watch for specials I’m going to do on http://www.soitv.com a digital / cable network in Spanish.

A friend just sent this out – she was looking for an address to pick up something from Craigslist and ended up at the wrong address garage. A white couple came out and started assessing her and her car instead of asking her for help. She is dark skinned and wondered if she were a white male would they have been different.
This is my reply to her.
Arizona is a very strange place – where racism seems to thrive and be smirked at – its almost like there are two very silent deadly sides to the anger here. Sometimes it shocks me and sometime it makes me want to show them what anger really looks like – but since I’m now about peace for many years… i just close my eyes and silently wonder where it all will end. If we have to pick sides I will always be on the side of the Brown – even though my skin is otherwise. I feel like God put a Brown person in a white suit so I can infiltrate the ‘enemy lines’ without being suspected. (not all white people are racist – Thank God!) . I don’t know why but my own dear father who was my hero was the most racist person in the world. I never knew why. I remember the day he drove down a street and saw me sitting on a black man’s front porch and we were looking at his rifle. My father wanted to kill me for all those things. I never knew why. In my HS there were no blacks. I never knew why. I was raised in Hot Springs Arkansas (and yes went to HS with Bill Clinton) – that is one of the reasons I left there for a bigger world.
Speaking from a WHITE (looking on the outside) perspective – yes you are right – sorry to say. My car makes people think I’m a Mexican or something weird. But when they see the color of my skin – they relax. I’ve never seen such racism in my life – except when I was growing up in Arkansas when bathrooms were marked MEN WOMEN and COLORED. And anyone not white (back then Mexicans were labeled white oddly enough) so anyone black was served their food outside a window and were separated from whites inside movie theaters by a divider wall – and had to buy snacks off a little cart – instead of the main concession bar. I remember those very unjust days very well. Blessings, my friend – as God once spoke to me…. ‘Don’t Judge those who Judge You.” Society is at fault here.

30 YEARS AGO THIS YEAR – 1982 – I WENT TO PRISON FOR MAKING BIRTH CERTIFICATES FOR MEXICANS – I AM NOT ASHAMED – I WAS VERY DEPRESSED OVER THE DEATH OF MY FATHER IN 1980 – I DIDN’T THINK I CARED ABOUT MYSELF – WHEN I SHOULD HAVE. THERE WAS NO THERAPY BACK THEN TO HELP ME. NO MEDS FOR DEPRESSION – SO I SIMPLY GAVE UP ALL HOPE OF A FUTURE. MY SENTENCE OF 3 YEARS WAS PAROLED OUT IN ONE. I AM AN EXCONVICT. PEOPLE MAY NOT REALIZE ALL THE WORK I DID IN THE TRENCHES OVER THE YEARS I WAS IN E. DALLAS TO PREVENT GANGMEMBERS FROM GOING TO PRISON. WE WERE ALL IN THE TRENCHES TOGETHER, LOST AND JUST TRYING TO SURVIVE THE STREETS. WE LAUGHED AND WE CRIED ABOUT IT – BUT WE ALL FORMED A FAMILY BOND THAT HAS GROWN INTO A WORLDWIDE ORGANIZATION OF WHAT SOCIETY THOUGHT WERE LOSERS – WE HAVE SHOWN THEM – WE ARE IN FACT ‘THE WINNERS’ BECAUSE WE HAVE SURVIVED WHEN OUR FINGER POINTERS WHO JUDGED US – HAVE NOT. BAJITO ONDA IS MY LIFE AND I AM THE GLOBAL FOUNDER. I MADE DECADES OF SACRIFICE IN ORDER TO DO ANYTHING I HUMANLY COULD TO KEEP YOUNG PEOPLE OUT OF PRISON AND CEMETERIES. AFTER 25 YEARS OF TRYING TO GET HELP FROM THE CITY OF DALLAS (IN DENIAL) WHO CHOSE TO SIT ON THEIR ASSES AND LET THE YOUTH DIE IN EACH OTHER’S ARMS – KILL EACH OTHER INSTEAD OF REACH OUT TO THEM AND ASK….’MIJO/ MIJA WHAT’S WRONG?’ – THEY LOCKED THEM UP, THEY LEFT ME THERE WITH THEIR PARENTS AND LOVED ONES TO CONSOLE AS THEY HELPLESSLY ACHED AND TRIED TO WONDER…. ‘HOW??? DID THIS HAPPEN TO MY SON, OR MY DAUGHTER I RAISED SO PROTECTIVELY?’ IT TOOK ITS TOLL ON ME AND I HAD TO LEAVE DALLAS AND BEGIN ANOTHER LIFE OF PROMOTING THE GOOD NAME OF BAJITO ONDA WITH THE FANTASTIC ART DONATED TO ME OVER ALL THOSE YEARS AS A THANK YOU FOR GIVING ALL I COULD AS LONG AS I COULD. WE ARE NOW PLEASED THAT OUR DREAMS ARE BECOMING A REALITY. BLESS ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR LOVE OVER THE YEARS FOR THE NOW WORLDWIDE FAMILY OF SOCIETY’S LOST, REJECTED, ABANDONED, EXCLUDED AND IMPRISONED AS WELL AS R.I.P – AS I HAVE SERVED DECADES IN THE TRENCHES – I HAVE ALSO ACCOMPLISHED MANY FEATS FOR OUR FOUNDATION. I HAVE PRESENTED TO 4 UNITED NATIONS IN MEXICO – IN SPANISH THE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS DEVELOPED IN E. DALLAS TO HELP OTHERS IN SOCIAL NEED. HERE ARE SOME OF THE AWARDS.
Much love out there to all our followers worldwide! Thank You – Gracias – Obrigado

BAJITO ONDA REPRESENTS the very people we come from. The very world we live in day in day out. WE WILL NEVER TURN OUR BACKS ON OUR PEOPLE – EVER!
Bajito Onda is the first 501c3 Federally Tax Exempt Charity to climb this high after serving decades in the URBAN VIOLENT AND HOPELESS TRENCHES after being released from PRISON trying just to come back – against all odds society stacked against us.
We are the FACES and VOICES of ALL the OPPRESSED in AMERICA as well as other parts of the world. WE ARE OUR FUTURE. Our BLOOD runs ONE in our veins. Our SKIN runs ONE in our hearts.
WE ARE NOT ASHAMED TO SAY WE ARE ALL CHICANO. WE LOVE – WE DON’T HATE. We support our family members who have fallen or who is in social crisis. WE LOVE WE DON’T HATE.
Bajito Onda is the TRUE CHICANO UNDERGROUND. We never left it. God heard our prayers and has kept us strong and faithful, dedicated and loyal all these years. We will never leave the underground for mainstream – if they want Bajito Onda they have to look beyond their narrow minded thinking and see into the depths of our society inside the ‘urban melting pot’ where all our lives have fallen and melted as one culture, one people, all survivors, all ‘in-it 2 win-it’. We’re on this ride till tha wheels fall off. When you wear our rags you REPRESENT, the culture, the streets, the prisoners, our beloved immigrants, the broken, the hungry, the addicted, the homeless, the busted flat, kids, victims, veterans, the silenced voices, the hidden faces, the innocent and the forgotten. BAJITO ONDA has served in whatever way we can to reach down and pull up our fallen ones around us. We ain’t afraid to face another day of it. We got NOTHIN’ to lose. All we got – we got it in our pockets.
Its why we have no APOLOGIES -
BECAUSE ‘WE’ KNOW WE HAVE TO REPRESENT. We STAND TALL SO OTHERS DON’T FALL!
If you read this – please accept our hand in the struggle and know it has been a long ass daily battle just to survive.
