Vai Brasil. Go Brazil. For the People of Brasil.

Again artikle wonders about the payoff of hosting the World Cup.  Who really benefits?
I think the picture above captures it all.
The World Cup is for the rich, the corporations, some corrupt politicians and the tourists who flock to beautiful Brasil for the world’s biggest sporting event.
Billions and billions spent. Yet schools, hospitals and infrastructure and public services still run down.
People being evicted from the very favelas where some of Brasil’s best footballers come from.
That is why I want Brasil to win it all. Not for the corporate sponsors, not for the corrupt politicians

About artikleblak

Artikleblak is a panoramic color-consciousness of digital media connecting the African Diaspora throughout the world. This world is a massive environment and our images and stories and concerns are spread to sparingly throughout the planet and digital terra. People of color comprise 4/5th of the world's population. Yet we have to Google search and channel surf and scour the event calendars to find ourselves, whether it be a person, place or thing. We should nevermore let oceans, languages, religions, cultures or man-made boundaries partition us. Our humanity is to powerful to remain fragmented, lets make it ONE again. Sincere thanks, Artikleblak
