Wow, it saddens me to read or hear on the news how Americans are being kidnapped and held hostage by Pakistanis or any other American-hating countries we are still sending our soldiers to. Today, May 7, 2012 I had to hear about this poor older gentleman who was working in Pakistan as an aide for the past five years and went as far as adopting local customs and learning the language. Ah, I did omit his name purposely from my post because I didn’t want to lead anyone under false pretences to my blog because this is where I get “real” and “latina” and say what’s on my mind.
Okay can someone tell me where I am NOT researching to see how many Puerto Ricans or Afro Americans have been held hostage in a foreign country? I have yet to hear about Pito, Pepe, Maria, Darryl, Keith, or Latoya being held in a foreign war riddled country. Could it be that the raza Latina knows better than to go and be an aid in some country who does not want us there? Perhaps it is the fact that Latoya will tell you point-blank not to mess with her because she and her girls will bust you up? Or Pepe will take a good look at their bearded face and tell them, “Atrevete que te voy a a dar una que te vas acordar de la madre que te pario!” If I won’t go over to my own island to aide the people who need my help, and most of them are my own family, why would I go to a country who openly hate Americans and become an aide when I know sooner or later my yellow, or tan butt will be targeted and kidnapped at the first chance they get? Not to mention my hair will frizz up in that godawful sun and give me away.
Get out I say, I know you wish to help the women and children and teach them our ways but, hello….ahh, you do not blend in and you cannot hide because those same women and children you are aiding are going to point the bad men to your hut or tent. Run I say, run! Do a Forrest Gump and RUN until you reach American soil! Call me a coward or a senseless writer not caring or wanting to be all that I can be by aiding these poor countries, hell if I wanted to be all that I can be, I would have joined the Army like that commercial announced back in the days used to say.
Sorry, I went off on a tangent as I usually do, my heart does go out to those who have lost a family member due to these terrorist acts but as long as planes are flying in and out of those countries I say run like the wind and head back home because your family members are the ones left behind suffering and missing you if you go missing.
Yes, we can help others and we can help them rebuild their countries but as long as those countries hates us and wish to harm us, my Puerto Rican ASSteroid would rather stay here drinking wine and writing my random posts.
