Tribute to Jose Blanco

Now here is Daniel Lopez

Hello again from my dark room at the end of the hallway.

Today will not have our report due to the fact JOSE BLANCO, long time Chicano civil rights movement activist in Texas and author passed on this past week.

A cause of his death was ?his heart was just too weak,? said his sister after completing a biopsy to check on his health.

Born in Gary, Indiana, attended high school in Kingsville, TX. He got his bachelors and master degrees from Texas A&M Kingsville in 1986. He earned his doctoral degree from a duel enrollment at he Unvisited National autonomic de Mexico.

He was author of several books, he latest ?Oasis: the greatest proverbs in the world to la mujer?.

Contained earth-shattering phrases of wisdom, giving emphasis to the political essences of humanity-from Che Guevara to Cesar Chavez to females and local activists.

I personnel knew him and spend many hours discussing our country and its good and beds, but he bottom line was que he was compassion and we will miss him. He did so much to try to connect with the poor and the oppressed and the disenfranchised. He represented the best of our manhood, of our completeness.

?Long live Jose Blanco? 48 years old.
