Estimado Sony Pictures: Basta con COLOMBIANA

Bueno, este post está dedicado a los ejecutivos de Sony Pictutres, los que no queiren hablar con nosotros sobre el boicot de la película COLOMBIANA, el cual se formó por el fabuloso grupo POR COLOMBIA NACIONAL. Aunque no tenemos ningún problema con la actriz principal de la película —la domicana boricua Zoe Saldana— sí tenemos problemas con los directores y productores y distribuidores de la película.

Pensábamos que la época de SCARFACE (latinos criminales, cocaína, estereotipos y un acento horrible de Al Pacino) había terminado (sí, Richard Rodríguez, tú eres un poco culpable también), pero parece que Hollywoodlandia lo sigue promoviendo. COLOMBIANA es una película problemática por esta sencilla razón: su falta de autencidad, honestidad, y su promoción de una imagen cansada del colombiano narco y violento. Basta ya.

Colombia es un bello país, un lugar con gente amable y decente. Los colombianos que nosotros hemos conocido son inteligentes, trabajaodores, y llenos de amor. Como se dice en Puerto Rico, a Sony Pictures, ¡le mandaremos al Carajo! Bueno, primero porque no nos respetan. Le hemos enviado varios emails y hecho llamadas telefónicas y no nos contestan. Sabemos que las empresas globales de este mundo nos consideran como basura o mejor dicho, un mosquito. Bueno, este mosquito (y mucho más) ya estamos enojados. BASTA CON LAS PELÍCULAS QUE PROMUEVEN ESTEROTIPOS CANSADOS Y OFENSIVOS DE CUALQUIER GRUPO O CULTURA. Y otra pregunta: ¿Dónde están los escritores, directores, y productores latinos para COLOMBIANA? Son todos franceses. Que se jodan.

Entonces, para Sony Pictures, le enviamos esta cancioncita:

Y lo que queremos hacer es apoyar a todos los colombianos y demás latinos que quieren decir WE'RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT.

Entonces CELEBREMOS A COLOMBIA CON ESTOS GENIOS:

  1. GABRIEL GARCÍA MÁRQUEZ: unos de los mejores escritoes en la historia del mundo, ¡que viva EL GABO!
  2. JUANES: tremenda estrella que nunca ha olvidado se sus raíces
  3. SHAKIRA: porque ella es bella y fantástica
  4. FERNANDO BOTERO: por darnos sus regalos artísticos
  5. CARLOS VIVES: ¡fruta fresca!
  6. RODOLFO LLINÁS: ganador de la Medalla Einstein de la UNESCO
  7. MARGARITA ROSA DE FRANCISCA: La Mencha
  8. ÁNGELA BECERRA: escritora premiada
  9. CAMILO VILLEGAS: rompiendo estereotipos en el golf
  10. y, por supuesto, ¡VALDERRAMA!: con su pelo rizado y anaranjado

¡QUE VIVA COLOMBIA, tierra natal de la libertad hispana!

¡COLOMBIA ES HERMOSO Y BELLO!

Immigration Update: Maximizing Public Safety and Better Focusing Resources

The White House release this yesterday:

President Obama is deeply committed to fixing our immigration laws and has been aggressively searching for partners in Congress who are willing to work with him to pass a new law. As he focuses on building a new 21st century immigration system that meets our nation’s economic and security needs, the President has a responsibility to enforce the existing laws in a smart and effective manner. This means making decisions that best focus the resources that Congress gives the Executive Branch to do this work. There are more than 10 million people who are in the U.S. illegally; it’s clear that we can’t deport such a large number. So the Administration has developed a strategy to make sure we use those resources in a way that puts public safety and national security first. If you were running a law enforcement agency anywhere in the world, you would target those who pose the greatest harm before those who do not. Our immigration enforcement work is focused the same way. Under the President’s direction, for the first time ever the Department of Homeland Security has prioritized the removal of people who have been convicted of crimes in the United States. And they have succeeded; in 2010 DHS removed 79,000 more people who had been convicted of a crime compared to 2008. Today, they announced that they are strengthening their ability to target criminals even further by making sure they are not focusing our resources on deporting people who are low priorities for deportation. This includes individuals such as young people who were brought to this country as small children, and who know no other home. It also includes individuals such as military veterans and the spouses of active-duty military personnel. It makes no sense to spend our enforcement resources on these low-priority cases when they could be used with more impact on others, including individuals who have been convicted of serious crimes. So DHS, along with the Department of Justice, will be reviewing the current deportation caseload to clear out low-priority cases on a case-by-case basis and make more room to deport people who have been convicted of crimes or pose a security risk. And they will take steps to keep low-priority cases out of the deportation pipeline in the first place. They will be applying common sense guidelines to make these decisions, like a person’s ties and contributions to the community, their family relationships and military service record. In the end, this means more immigration enforcement pressure where it counts the most, and less where it doesn’t – that’s the smartest way to follow the law while we stay focused on working with the Congress to fix it.
