The Crew want to move to Austin – but does Austin want the Crew? | Football | The Guardian
“There is one side of the tracks and the other. It’s a history, and it’s a constructed history of systemic racism all over the country. And here we have our own version in just the fact that we have an east Austin,” said Daniel Llanes, an artist and activist, after the council meeting.

Llanes noted that the Butler proposal was quickly abandoned but the Guerrero Park idea is being taken seriously. “I’m not against the soccer stadium and all of the economic benefits that it would bring. What I don’t want is to locate it in Guerrero Park and I especially don’t want it if they’re protecting west Austin and they’re not protecting east Austin,” he said.

“The stadium would be a blight to a park that everybody around it worked so hard to create,” he added. “I’m a Chicano so my heritage is Native American, it’s earth, you know? So I go: why is it that white people cannot leave a space alone? They cannot leave a big open space with wildlife and trees and water and nature. They can’t just leave it alone, they want to pave it over.”

笑え!合併珍市名
"んもう、どこにあるんだよここっ・・・。

「珍市名」として悪名高い東京都西東京市。京の東のそのまた西に・・と、ややこしいことこの上ない。そもそも、西東京市は東京の東側にある。東京23区から見れば西だけれど、どう考えても「西」ではない。

さらに東京都西東京市南町という東なんだか南なんだか訳の分からない地名もできてしまった。1つの地名に4つも方角が入っている。はっきりしろって言いたくなります。

「東京」というのは世界的に通用する超広域地名であり、安易に東西南北をつけると本当にややこしいことになります。"
