    this is real, I lived and played music in Tepic, Nayarit MX for two years, and I remember somebody plowing their car into a group of kids, dressed “emo” and he killed one of them. if you dress at all “emo” you are like bottom of the caste system. never thought I’d read an American writing about something like that.

    That’s unbelievable… quite shocking really… I figured most of the American and European press coverage was really reveling in the media-stirred drama, and from what I had read there certainly does appear to be some sort level of loathing that I had considered on level with that in America and Europe, ie nothing more than bare threats from those who find displeasure in emo culture and a genuine culture of fear spread by those who don’t understand it. But the fact that someone was killed? That’s horrifying!
    An undercurrent that drives this blog, aside from the main topics of study (emo, culture, etc), is a concept of how cultural ideas/trends/whatever reflect one’s/a society’s values and, in many ways, how we treat one another… culture is often a microscope with which to view larger issues within different societies and humanity in general… and so, especially given the drive of the blog, it was no question as to whether I would write about this issue!
    Do you have any more information about the kid that was killed by the car (articles, tv specs, other links?) I’m interested in learning more about this, and perhaps about your own interactions, if you would be so kind and were interested in such a thing…

    I am intrested in this topic since I am doing a final for one of my high school classes on ’emo fashion discrimination.’I would also like to get any information on the incidents that have happened. I would really apriciate it and it would help me a lot. Any articles, photographs, interviews, websites. Anything realted to this subject would work for me. Thankyou!
