    Im still tripping on the article about Royal Caribbean’s school in Haiti. I dont know alot about cruises, but I know the Caribbean is a hot spot for the West to play out all kinds of fethishes and to “get away” from the privelege of running the world, I guess. Did they really dock in Haiti a few days after the earthquake? who does that?!

    It is so clear that school was built out of pure guilt because of the (justified) negative media they got after the earthquake. And then to defend not giving children food during the day by saying “we never promised meals?” Thats like building this expensive school and not giving the children books…wait, do they have books? Perhaps those werent promised either.

    As soon as I heard the Operation was called “Geronimo,” I knew there had to be something wrong with that. As far as I know, and I know little about the man, Geronimo wasn’t some sadistic terrorist.

    And sure enough, plenty of Native Americans agree with me. Americans are getting poorer and poorer with basic history; probably a little more racist, too. Sheesh.
