Brazil_Rio_Violence_Thom-450x350The world cup is coming in May and those of you in America are probably going whites the big deal but to the rest of the world it’s the biggest sporting event in the world. The host country is Brazil and it looks like they may be actually ready. There is a lot of corruption in Latin American politics and Brazil I right near the top. If you look at the two pictures I posted on the right is what they hope you see and remember. The left on represents what they hope you don’t see. First the slums are not safe second there not safe. The country has been sending in troops to the larger ones trying to clean them out and if that doesn’t work they have accidental fires that burn half of it to the ground. As beautiful as the country is and as successful as it economy might be it has one of the largest population s of poor in the world. Many had hoped the world cup would help improve thing but the Elite that run this country don’t give a shit about the poor they just wish they would go away. So when if you watch the spectacle of the World Cup try to remember all the poor people who won’t have the opportunity to see it even though some of them helped build the stadiums. This is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin another city that turn a blind eye to the plight of it’s poor.
