Guadalupedos:/Writer Pablo Martinez Comments

I've heard all sorts of reactions to Elda Silva's front-page article on the GCAC, ranging from fury to apathy. Here's my "cry of Cassandra": One of the article's many possible effects is that those who think San Antonio can only support one "major" Latino arts organization will now see the Alameda displacing the GCAC in that positioning 'sweepstakes.

That the Alameda takes top billing may well happen but what does that mean? are we starting a class war on top of everything else? are we saying that we trun our heads away from what is unethical in order to save an organization? what about the HUMANS involved? how many ways must the unaccepatble behavior of not only the board, but principally Ruiz, be stated in order for the community to understand that the harm and injury that has occurred has mainly been to WOMEN AND CHILDREN! are the "activists" in this town, (are there any left?) going to focus on an organization that, except under the leadership of Pedro Rodriguez, has marginally served the community and the nation? is the Chicano template always going to include fraud? if we turn away from what wrongdoing is and has occurred then, hell, lets just forget about Chicanismo because we have turned into Bushites who have surrounded their investments to protect their interests.
