Even before five o'clock in the afternoon, dozens of women with posters, megaphones, and pink caps were being seen walking downtown. The meeting was in Logan Square, in the heart of Philadelphia. The occasion? Well, that depends on the perspective: for an unaware bystander (who generally has no perspective), it was one more celebration of International Women's Day.

#LosEsclavosNoSonInmigrantes El por qué Ben Carson está equivocado

 03/09/2017 - 03:39

“De eso trata América, una tierra de sueños y oportunidades”, dijo Carson. “Hubo otros inmigrantes que vinieron aquí en el fondo de barcos esclavistas, trabajaron por mucho más tiempo, más arduamente y por mucho menos. Pero ellos también tuvieron el sueño de que algún día, sus hijos, hijas, nietos, nietas, bisnietos y bisnietas pudieran ser prósperos y conseguir la felicidad en esta tierra”.

Mujeres no celebraron su día, reclamaron sus derechos

Desde antes de las cinco de la tarde ya empezaban a verse, caminando por el centro, a decenas de mujeres armadas de carteles, megáfonos y gorros color rosa. La cita era en la glorieta de Logan Square, en pleno corazón de Filadelfia. ¿La ocasión? Bueno, eso depende de la perspectiva: para el transeúnte desprevenido (que generalmente no tiene perspectiva), se trató de una celebración más del Día Internacional de la Mujer. En cambio, para quienes tienen perspectiva –sobre todo de género–, “celebración” no es una palabra que le hace justicia al 8 de marzo.

#SlavesAreNotImmigrants Why Ben Carson is wrong

"That's what America is about, a land of dreams and opportunity," Carson said. "There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less. But they too had a dream that one day their sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, great-grandsons, great-granddaughters, might pursue prosperity and happiness in this land.”

As Pennsylvania Auditor General Eugene DePasquale went on record saying that allowing - and taxing - recreational marijuana could help the state find money to close its budget gap, one has to wonder if the same could be applied to the city of Philadelphia.
