Black Lives Matter -Links for what you can do

This is inherent in the nature of all forms of Capoeira.

 

The songs sing about simple fact that all people are equal no matter which philosophical way one tries to over complicate that with pedantic disection and psuedo science gone mainstream.

 

When one group is singled out and dehumanized for whatever reason it goes against this baseline mantra that should be able to go without saying.

 

When this isn't the case: We have an obligation to counter that dissection by any means necessary, if a peacefully lawful covenant cannot be reached across the diglossial semantics. 

 

The song in Capoeira: "Da Da Da no Nego, no Nego voce nao da..."  Speaks of Black Humans not being able to take part in the society to which they were born into.

 

The song in Capoeira:  " O Nega que vendei a e?"  is sung with the interrobang inherent in the question.  Meaning that; it doesn't mean anything if your products are good or bad.. the white world is calling it into question simply on the basis of the vendor being black, an exslave, forced into a life of poverty, excluded from resources, which is a line drawn on where they will be tolerated by the white majority of the time and tide of the time(s) sung about.

 

Much of Southern white Brazil still looks down on anyone playing Capoeira as people doing that 'dirty black street dance".

 

Our group is inclusive to everyone.  But, if you're against Black Lives being treated fairly, or feel that Native Americans should be thankful for White Genocide - because it brought them J-s-s.  Our group is not for you.

 

We love fiscal conservatives, we love fiscal liberals - all that stuff is up for debate.

 

What isn't up for debate is that coopting one thing or another - lying about one thing or another - such as stealing Hawai'in culture to promote a white instigated race war by using tiki torches and hawaiian shirts to send a visual coded message - among a growing list of other appropriations for the 'evil side of the force'. This is not acceptable.  

 

Sending out tear gas on peaceful protestors to agitate them into fighting for their lives or promoting an image of chaos just to have a photo op holding the book of the forgiveness meme in front of a forgiveness temple - is not acceptable - coopting religious ideals for political gain is corruption.  The same corruption of usery charged when upselling peoples sacrifices of lambs to a better model for G-d to accept is said to have led the Massiah to go on a one person riot themself. According to written legends in the memebase.

 

Modern European Americans need to carry out their lives in accordance with the notion of being forgiven of sins of past generations that are visited upon them and actively seek to undue the damage that has been at every turn.

 

We are including Links shared in our city and region of Capoeirastas coming together to talk about policy and actionable change.

Sing, Evade, Fight, Dance, Reform, Tease, & Play

Come learn & play Capoeira Angola, and grow with us.

  • Class sessions are designed for beginners;
  • Players' who've been missing the sway of the berimbau and are ready to get back into the game;
  • Intermediate angoleiros/as (e mais tudo capoeiragem) who can adjust, have fun with, and represent the Palmarino/a sense of ergonomic style well.

Our Outlook

Our outlook is similar to  that of many traditions around the globe that incorporate rythmic movement into the training process.

This as it is tends to be outside confirmation of what we endevor to practice in song, and in a pressure based sense of safety measured with rising degrees of peril as the heat of the dance diles up.  And hones in from many diverse combinations of variant strengths and needs for practical safety.

We have a bit more fun by taking this into full fledged, immediate social situational commentary and song.
