UN committee asks Costa Rica to remove Cocori from grade school classrooms

Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination wants Costa Rica to remove the controversial book ‘Cocorí’ from classrooms, among other suggested measures to combat racial discrimination. The request to stop teaching the book, which until recently was part of the curriculum in Costa Rica’s grade schools, was made Friday at the end of a nearly monthlong meeting of the U.N. committee.In a statement, committee members also noted their concern about “racist insults and threats” against Afro-Caribbean lawmakers who have fought against official glorification of what they say is an insulting and discriminatory text.“Cocorí” is a well-known but polemical children’s book written by the late Joaquín Gutiérrez about a young black boy who falls in love with a blonde girl. It’s content — and popular illustrations of it — incite heated debates in a country that still struggles with a history of discrimination against citizens who are Afro-Caribbean descendants.In May, congresswomen Epsy Campbell and Maureen Clarke, both of Afro-Caribbean descent, filed complaints with the government ombudsman’s office after receiving a wave of racist threats in person and on social media. The lawmakers had asked the Culture Ministry to withdraw funding for a musical adaptation of Cocorí.Campbell, of the ruling Citizen Action Party, said she had received numerous racial insults on social media, including calls for her to “go back to Africa.”Also recommended: ‘Cocorí,’ a racism debate, and a brief history of controversial children’s litThe U.N. committee’s report asks Costa Rica “to make sure that textbooks with a racist connotation are withdrawn from the syllabus in elementary schools.” The committee’s 18 independent experts said they worried about the use of school texts that can “be interpreted as having a stereotypical vision of minorities, especially of indigenous or Afro-Caribbean populations.” They asked the Costa Rican government to honor “the knowledge of the Afro-Caribbean and indigenous populations’ cultural practices and their contributions to Costa Rican history and culture.”The committee, which is charged with evaluating member countries’ compliance with the Convention on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, also expressed worry over the existence of “internal regulations in various schools” that “deny Afro-Caribbean persons from their cultural identity.” And it asked Costa Rica to pass a law that would reform its criminal code to include harsher sentences for racially-motivated crimes.But the country has made strides — some of them recognized by the U.N. committee — towards embracing its diversity.In July, the Ministry of Public Education ordered the director of a high school in Escazú to cancel a policy that prohibited students from wearing their hair in dreadlocks. Education Minister Sonia Marta Mora told the news site Amelia Rueda that dreads were part of Afro-Caribbean identity and therefore were a fundamental right.This week President Luis Guillermo Solís signed a bill into law reforming the first article of the Costa Rican Constitution to redefine the country as a “multi-ethnic, pluri-national nation.”The U.N. committee looked positively on the constitutional reform, along with the adoption of a national policy to fight racism, xenophobia and racial discrimination, and the creation of a Commission for Afro-Descendent Affairs.The report also asked Costa Rica to ensure dignified workplaces and to pay attention to “judicial and social exclusion” and “specific vulnerability of migrant indigenous people temporarily occupying coffee plantations and the situation of women migrants employed as domestic workers.”Costa Rica’s Ombudsman’s Office released a statement Friday afternoon supporting the report’s findings. The office highlighted the committee’s recommendations to include an option for people to self-identify their ethnicity on official surveys and data collection.With information from AFP Facebook Commentslast_img read more

CORONA Calif – Jimmy Page once painted a dragon

first_img CORONA, Calif. – Jimmy Page once painted a dragon, and used it to slay.The guitar guru was so bursting with creative inspiration 50 years ago that he felt compelled to pick up a brush and use his skills from art school to take poster paints to his favourite instrument, a 1959 Fender Telecaster, and decorate it with a psychedelic beast.He calls the axe “the Excalibur” that he wielded through the wildly eventful year of 1968, when his old band, the Yardbirds, crashed, and his new band, Led Zeppelin, was born just two months later.“My whole life is moving so fast at that point,” Page, now 74, said as he reflected on Led Zeppelin’s 50th anniversary in an interview with The Associated Press at the Fender guitar factory in California. “Absolutely just a roller-coaster ride.”Page said he had Led Zeppelin’s sound, and first songs, fully formed in his mind before the Yardbirds were even done.“I just knew what way to go,” Page said. “It was in my instinct.”He found his first ally in singer Robert Plant, whom he invited to his house to thumb through records and talk music.Page said he used an unlikely bit of folkie inspiration — Joan Baez — to show Plant the sound he wanted, playing her recording of the song “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You” and telling him to emulate the way she sang the top line of the song. Zeppelin would put the tune on its first album.Page still marvels at how fast the whole thing took off after Plant brought on drummer John Bonham and Page pulled in his friend John Paul Jones to play bass.“The whole journey of Led Zeppelin and the rise of Led Zeppelin, each tour was just extraordinary, and the growth and the respect and love of the band, and the people that were flooding to see us,” Page said.The first record also included “Dazed and Confused,” with Page famously using a violin bow on the dragon guitar, which he played on every electric song on the record.The guitar had been a cherished gift that guitarist Jeff Beck had given Page to thank him for recommending Beck for a job in the Yardbirds, which had brought a handsome payday.“He’d bought a Corvette Stingray, and came roaring up my driveway with it,” Page remembered. “He said, ‘This is yours.’ I was absolutely thrilled to bits. It was given to me with so much affection.”Page said he made immediate and intense use of the instrument, and wanted to “consecrate” it, so he went at it with paints that were used at the time for psychedelic posters, and summoned the dragon.Page later left the guitar behind at his home in England on an early U.S. tour with Led Zeppelin in 1969. He’d come to regret it.When he returned, exhausted and abuzz, he found that a ceramicist friend who had been serving as his house-sitter had painted over the dragon in his own mosaic style as a “gift” for Page.“It was a disaster,” he said.Page angrily stripped off all the paint and he placed it in storage, where it sat for decades.Flash forward 50 years. Page was assembling a book for the band’s anniversary, and the dragon guitar kept popping up in pictures.Page felt that maybe it was time to bring the old beast back to life. He worked with a graphic artist who helped illustrate the book, using photos to repaint the guitar, and recreate its old look.He loved the result so much that he approached Fender, guitar maker happily signed on to make an anniversary rendition for the public. The design will be unveiled in January.“It’s absolutely identical,” Page said. “You wouldn’t see any difference. If anything, the colours were just slightly richer.”Four different versions of the guitar will be released next year.Along with the book, the instruments are a tribute to the band’s 50-year legacy.Asked what kind of gift one might get for his bandmates for such a milestone, Page said, “I might give them a paintbrush, and the body of a guitar, and see if they can do something with it.”___Follow Andrew Dalton on Twitter: https://twitter.com/andyjamesdalton .

This image released by Twentieth Century Fox shows

first_img This image released by Twentieth Century Fox shows Jennifer Lawrence in a scene from “Dark Phoenix.” (Doane Gregory/Twentieth Century Fox via AP) The good news is “Dark Phoenix ” is neither an apocalypse nor is it “X-Men: Apocalypse,” but this latest installment is not exactly a solid step forward or a satisfying ending for anyone.It’s supposed to be the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, and yet it feels more like a rushed and inconsequential spinoff than something that we’ve been building toward for two decades. Perhaps that’s because we’ve barely gotten to know this version of Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), whose transformation into the all-powerful Phoenix is the thing that divides the X-Men into a tiny civil war.A brief flashback to 1975 shows a young Jean’s defining trauma, when the telekinesis she can’t yet control results in a horrific car crash and her becoming an orphan. She’s taken in by Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) who offers her help and guidance and tells her that she can decide to use her powers for good, which is not exactly top of mind for her when, 17 years later, she absorbs a deadly cosmic energy field.The main action is set in 1992, a decade after the events in “Apocalypse” and 30 years after the events in “X-Men: First Class,” and you might find yourself wondering just how old are all of these mutants and what is their skin care regime. If there is a reason this had to be set in 1992, the movie certainly doesn’t give you any explanation, nor does it really attempt to capture the look of the early ’90s at all in costume or production design. But it’s 1992, the title card says so, and Charles is riding high on a tide of public goodwill. The X-Men are finally being regarded as heroes and he’s become the public face of the operation, with a direct line to the President of the United States and everything.Yet he’s getting a little cavalier with his people, sending them off on an impossible rescue mission to space which will render Jean into the Dark Phoenix. Even his longtime allies like Raven/Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) and Hank/Beast (Nicholas Hoult) are starting to question his motives. This, frankly, is the more interesting thread but the film, written and directed by Simon Kinberg, instead uses Jean/Phoenix — who, again, we don’t know very well — as the embodiment of all of his ambition and failings.Essentially, Jean discovers that Charles has been hiding some information from her about her childhood and she gets angry (dangerously so) and starts racking up a body count. Even Magneto (Michael Fassbender), who is living in what looks like a dystopian sleepaway camp, doesn’t want any part of it and she becomes an outcast. So when an intense alien with nefarious plans and sky high stilettos, Vuk (Jessica Chastain) tells her that she’s just misunderstood and to follow her, Jean is all ears.It’s a lot of fussy plot with not much heart behind it, and while Turner is excellent at looking like a woman in distress, she needs a character to back up all that conflict and make us care. Even a pretty shocking death barely registers emotionally. It probably also doesn’t help that this is coming on the heels of “Avengers: Endgame.”As with the other X-Men movies featuring this younger cast, the best parts are usually when Magneto and Charles are in the same scene, which we do get a bit of here in a pretty fun action sequence on a train which introduced me to the concept of “dreadlock fighting.”But all in all, “Dark Phoenix” is a whiff. The most suspenseful thing that happened had nothing to do with the movie at all, but the theatre’s fire alarm that went off during a review screening during the epic climax.“Dark Phoenix,” a 20th Century Fox release, is rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for “intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action including some gunplay, disturbing images, and brief strong language.” Running time: 113 minutes. Two stars out of four.___MPAA Definition of PG-13: Parents strongly cautioned.

Justice John Roberts took an opportunity to right a historical wrong that had somehow eluded his predecessors Almost as an aside writing on behalf of the court’s conservative majority and the soon-to-be-deeply-missed Anthony Kennedy Roberts emphatically threw out the high court’s ignominious ruling against Fred Korematsu 20 years after President Clinton awarded him the Medal of FreedomIf you don’t know much about Korematsu or his agonizing decades-long resistance against the government’s internment of Japanese-Americans in 1942 here’s a short piece I wrote for the New York Times Magazine after his death in 2005Roberts’s condemnation of the court’s ruling — coupled with Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s dueling reference to it in her sharply dissenting opinion — added to a suddenly contentious discussion about the internment after decades of virtual silenceVoices on the left have been comparing the disgraceful caging of children on the southern border to the internment as did Laura Bush the former first ladyEven some prominent Japanese-Americans have declared Trump’s policy to be essentially equivalent or worse The actor and activist George Takei writing in the journal Foreign Policy made the point that even though he was thrown into an internment camp as a child at least the government allowed him to stay with his parentsIn last week’s column on the administration’s policy I noted parenthetically that while images of the camps in Texas may evoke long-dormant memories of 1942 what Trump is doing now really doesn’t compare in any substantive way to what Franklin Roosevelt did then which will forever stain his presidential legacy(Chiseled into a stone at the sprawling FDR Memorial in Washington is a quote from Roosevelt that reads in part: “We must scrupulously guard the civil rights and civil liberties of all citizens whatever their background” That the designers thought this fitting is a testament to how readily we reimagine history when it suits our purposes)Anyway my brief observation about the difference between then and now provoked a small eruption of fury in my inbox and on social media where readers on the left — some of them my friends — accused me of excusing Trump’s persecution of helpless children In their mind I guess to say the current policy isn’t nearly as egregious as the internment is to somehow deny that it’s wrong at all (Which by the way I think it is)This is a difficult argument to have but I think it’s actually important — as a matter of both history and practical politicsFirst some absurdly quick history for those who may not have studied it very carefully In 1942 following the surprise invasion of Pearl Harbor the Roosevelt administration by executive order rounded up more than 100000 West Coast residents of Japanese descent and threw them into 10 hastily built internment camps where most of them remained for the duration of the warThe bulk of those families unable to tend land or pay taxes ultimately lost everything they had — houses farms careers and a sense of belonging(In case you were wondering Trump during his campaign for the White House refused to say in interviews whether he might have supported the internment at the time or even whether it violated American values)Admittedly this is somewhat personal for me I wrote many years ago about my late father-in-law who fought ferociously for a segregated regiment of Japanese-American soldiers earning a Purple Heart cluster while his family remained imprisoned My mother-in-law spent her high school years in the notorious camp at ManzanarAnd by the way while I admire Takei and wouldn’t dare presume to understand his experience it’s not the case that families weren’t separated during the internment My wife’s grandfather was taken away by the FBI immediately after Pearl Harbor for reasons never stated or known and didn’t see his five children for 18 monthsOn the facts alone rather than as a matter of imagery the internment was a qualitatively different thing from what we’re seeing today It’s not simply the scale of it that defies comparison but more pointedly the fact that the vast majority of internees then were American citizens entitled to all the same rights and constitutional protections as the rest of usThe government simply shredded these rights out of a hysteria that even some government lawyers admitted was entirely unfounded And until this week to its eternal shame the nation’s highest court went alongNow to be clear no form of government-sanctioned persecution is tolerable if we’re to live up to basic American ideals But there’s a distinction nonetheless between our promise to law-abiding citizens who have full rights under the law on one hand and what we owe would-be immigrants streaming across the border on the other It’s just not the sameSome of the thoughtful correspondents who disagree with me about this make a strictly legal argument; they note that judges have often extended the same basic protections to immigrants on American soil as they do to citizens Just this week in fact a federal judge in California ruled the Trump detention policy to be illegalMore generally though those who insist on equating 1942 and today seem to be saying that citizenship is an arbitrary designation morally speaking Basic human rights belong to everyoneThus if the American government has thrown you into prison without due cause whether you were born in California in 1930 or in Nicaragua in 2007 it’s pretty much the same thing and it’s heartless and small-minded of me to draw a distinctionI have a couple of problems with this line of reasoningFor one thing pragmatically speaking you really can’t win the debate over immigration policy if you don’t think citizenship — that is being born here — really counts for something Yes most Americans clearly favor a compassionate immigration system They’re with you on that and they don’t buy into Trump’s neo-nativism and demagogueryBut they also believe that their rights and security should come first that borders have to mean something that we can’t just let everybody into the country because somehow all humans are entitled to the same protectionsWhen you stubbornly refuse to acknowledge the distinction between imprisoning citizens because of their lineage (as we did in 1942) and locking up foreigners who turn up at the border (as we’re doing now) you’re setting yourself up to lose the larger argument You’re saying that the way we treat American citizens isn’t more important legally or morally than the way we treat anyone elseStepping back from the immigration debate though I worry for the culture when nothing that happens can be just bad or wrong but instead has to approximate the most horrible thing that’s ever happened because we’ve become a self-absorbed amnesiac stratum of elites who have to see ourselves at the white-hot center of history every minute of the dayThis is true on both the left and right It’s not enough that Trump’s immigration policy is cruel and dehumanizing; it has to resemble in every way the cruelest and most dehumanizing thing the American government ever did (outside of slavery or the Trail of Tears anyway)It’s not enough for a Trump lackey like Anthony Scaramucci (yeah they’re still putting this guy on TV) to condemn the protesters who show up at a Mexican restaurant to mock a Cabinet member while she’s eating dinner; he has to declare that liberals are using tactics “right out of Joseph Goebbels’ playbook” (Because if there’s anything the Nazis stood for it was heckling people at Mexican restaurants)A society that obliterates all nuance is bound to cheapen its history and everyone else’s too_____Read more from Yahoo News:Looking for a growth
