RIP: Juan Rafael Santos

You might know him as the cat who ran the blog, The Fourth World. Although updated very infrequently, whatever palabras made their way there were golden. News of Juan's January 22 passing appeared on his blog this past Saturday. His last contribution was posted three days prior to his death - an interview entitled, Obama, King and Kennedy: Empire and the “End” of Racism. Juan had a keen awareness of the structural violence endemic to American hegemony, empire, or whatever you want to call it. His voice will be missed, but thankfully his words live on and can enlighten for years to come.
