It seems that hardly any week or month goes by at Brown that some racial or sexual identity isn’t being celebrated. This week we have a two for one—in addition to Sex Week, it is Latino History Month. The theme for the latter is … identity—how shocking! For the kick-off, organizers hosted a former social worker and public school teacher, named Carlos Andres Gomez, who read a poem about someone else who read a poem to his public school students. His poem dealt with the ethical dilemma he faced when the performer let out some expletives and the school principal demanded he ‘shut down’ the performance. Instead, Gomez responded in only the way a good liberal should—he talked about racism and violence. So Gomez gets on stage at the high school and, as he is looking out over an audience filled with gang members and pregnant teens, he suddenly he thinks about how outdated their textbooks are—they of course are from the obsolescent 1950s. So he does the next logical thing: he asks how many students had heard of the holocaust—wait a minute, didn’t they already make a movie about this? In the rest of his talk to Brown students, Gomez confronts—surprise, surprise—the ignorance of a white midwestern woman and her stereotypes about Hispanics. If that failed to inspire you, then just wait for upcoming events like a lecture titled ‘QUEERican,’ a showing of a mockumentary about what would happen if all the Mexicans in the United States disappeared, and a panel that will tackle, among other issues, the ‘marginalizing effects of a heteronormative mestizo culture’—because apparently the evils of heteronormativity weren’t adequately addressed during Sex Week.
