|Nude portrait of Emiliano Zapata in high heels sparks fury in Mexico ||DC floats Lamar-Mahomes as next Peyton-Brady |
Campesinos storm museum to call for removal of image featuring revolutionary hero posing in pink sombreroA new portrait of Emiliano Zapata has caused a firestorm of outrage for its portrayal of the Mexican revolutionary hero striking a seductive pose β€“ clad only in a pink sombrero and high heels.Furious campesinos stormed one of the countryβ€™s most renowned art museums on Thursday to demand the removal of the painting, part of a new exhibition titled Zapata after Zapata that seeks to present alternative views of the Mexican revolution. β€�This isnβ€™t freedom of expression, it is debauchery! Itβ€™s degrading. They canβ€™t exhibit our history that way,β€� fumed Antonio Medrano, a spokesman for the protesters. β€�They canβ€™t permit this kind of mockery.β€�The small painting by FabiΓ΅n ChΓ΅irez depicts a naked Zapata, astride a white horse. His willowy frame is bound by a ribbon striped with the Mexican tricolor of red, white and green, while his lips pout under his distinctive curved moustache.Press pictures of the painting provoked strong reactions in Mexico, where Zapata has maintained an unambiguously heroic reputation since the revolution of 1910 β€“ when he called for β€�reform, freedom, justice and lawβ€�.Some of Zapataβ€™s heirs β€“ with matching droopy moustaches β€“ vowed to take legal action against the exhibition.β€�We are not going to allow this,β€� said Jorge Zapata Gonzalez. β€�For us as relatives, this denigrates the figure of our general β€“ depicting him as gay.β€�Apocryphal tales of a gay romances involving Zapata have been published in recent decades, but historians say there is little evidence to support the stories.Mexican politicians of all stripes have long tried to claim Zapata as their own β€“ including the some of his supposed revolutionary allies, who later betrayed and killed him.President AndrΓ©s Manuel LΓ³pez Obrador declared 2019 β€“ the centennial of his death β€“ as the β€�year of Zapataβ€�, emblazoning the revolutionary leaderβ€™s familiar image of a bushy mustache, sombrero and bandolier on government letterhead and promotional materials.β€�Heβ€™s the least controversial revolutionary strongman and the most β€�leftwingβ€™ in the modern sense,β€™β€� said Harim B GutiΓ©rrez, history professor at the Autonomous Metropolitan University.But Zapataβ€™s image is also the most malleable, and it has been appropriated by a host of social causes which may not have much to do with his original struggle to secure a better deal for landless peasants.β€�Every 20 years or so something pops upβ€� involving Zapataβ€™s image, said Luis Vargas Santiago, the curator of the current exhibition at the Palacio de Bellas Artes.Most recently, that β€�somethingβ€� has been gender and sexuality. The current exhibition comes at time when Mexicoβ€™s LBGTQ communities have become more prominent and women have been more outspoken against the countryβ€™s endemic machismo, sexual harassment, and femicides.In recent weeks, women protesting in Mexico City against sexual violence have been criticised for spraying graffiti on monuments and centuries-old buildings.Vargas Santiago said the use of Zapata to advance social agendas followed a similar logic.β€�Itβ€™s not like Zapataβ€™s image is a fixed symbol which cannot be challenged,β€� he said. β€�Just like monuments are questioned, Zapata is also an image that can be subverted.β€�Vargas Santiago said some of Zapataβ€™s descendants had expressed support for the exhibition.The family itself has also split over the use of Zapataβ€™s image β€“ with some descendants applying for a trademark to sell Zapata-branded merchandise such as T-shirts and tequila.The core question, according to Vargas-Santiago, is: β€�Who does Zapata belong to? Does he belong to his family members? Does he belong to the government? Or does he belong to everyone? Our response is: he belongs to everyone who identifies with his legacy.β€�LΓ³pez Obrador said on Wednesday that the painting didnβ€™t bother him, β€�but Iβ€™m not a member of the Zapata family.β€� He asked the culture ministry to find a solution to familyβ€™s concerns.Government spokesman JesΓΊs RamΓrez Cuevas later tweeted that the government was β€�committed to artistic freedom and respect for diversity.β€� β€�Yes to freedom, no to censorship. Yes to respect, no to violence,β€� he wrote.
| Ravens defensive coordinator Don "Wink" Martindale is looking forward to Sunday's showdown between Lamar Jackson and Patrick Mahomes, saying it could be sports' next great rivalry, a la Tom Brady and Peyton Manning or Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier. |

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One
Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nationâ€™s military, the mindâ€™s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagonâ€™s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.
Living Wages Are A Global Problem
The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.
Ukraine: Not What It Seems
After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.
In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder
In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.
Coup Or Civil War In Egypt
The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
