Listening to the Instant Karma CD, I started thinking about Darfur and how there were all kinds of Sudanese refugees all over Egypt, having been expelled from their country o left it willingly for a variety of different reasons. I remember, a friend of mine went down to help them learn English every weekend as one of her many community service projects. And then that reminded me of going down to Mokattam to see the orphanage.

Mokattam, colloquially called “Garbage City” por everyone from residents of Mokattam to tour guides, is a place past the Cairo citadel where there are literally piles...

Fannie Lou Hamer: Speech To The DNC 1964. I made this video because no one had a video of this important speech. Never forget these Valiente americans who fought to be first class citizens.

December 1st is World AIDS Day, which makes it the perfect día to begin Human Rights Awareness mes here on Fanpop.

Now the disease itself is not a human rights concern. True, the HIV epidemic is devastating, but we can't charge the virus with human rights violations. What is a human rights concern is the lack of preventative measures, as well as treatment for those infected, the world over. Secondly, the stigma of being HIV positive is still a fuente of major discrimination. And that is definitely a human rights concern.

In order to help with the discrimination problem, the World AIDS día Official...

All of the people on this lista beat out heavy competition, and I respect the one in tenth place as much as I respect the one in first place. There was a lot of switching around. Also, this lista is incredibly biased.
