Meanwhile, On TumblR: Nelida Perez’s “Brown Power” And Sergio Romo’s T-shirt

Caught this gorgeous piece of political artwork by Nelida Perez on her Tumblr, which she said is “inspired by the Chicano civil rights movement.”

“Brown Power.”
























Speaking of activism, Jorgas Rivas at Colorlines wrote a post about Sergio Romo’s right-on t-shirt that the R’s Tumblizens liked a lot:

San Francisco Giants’ Sergio Romo, who threw the series-winning last strike out in the 2012 World Series against the Detroit Tigers, strode through the city during the team’s celebratory victory parade today wearing a t-shirt with the words: “I just look illegal.”

“Romo used his platform to show how ridiculous the notion is for anyone to be considered ‘illegal,’ said Monica Novoa, who leads the Drop the I-Word campaign. “He also is pointing to how this dehumanizing, inaccurate language goes hand in hand with racial profiling.”
