Learning Spanish


The labor historian Dana Frank has a wonderful if disturbing essay on learning Spanish through experiencing and then fighting against the Honduran coup that took place in 2009. Frank is not one to mince words and she puts plenty of blame on the Obama Administration for doing nothing against the coup and recognizing the bogus elections that followed. I think more accurately the Obama Administration doesn’t care much about Honduras either way but the Cuban exile community in Florida and their friends among the Latin American elite very much did. In any case, this is an excellent essay about being a committed outsider in a country struggling with political violence, massive corruption, and a horrible wave of murder in a place where justice basically does not exist.
