Brief Introduction

First and foremost, welcome to my world; I thank you for joining me on this exciting journey.

This medium will be used to express my views on politics, culture, society, and, more generally, life.

The origin of my blog’s title
“The Ghetto Times”is simple. One part stems from my love of The New York Times, which I read daily. The other part stems from how I see the world: through an intellectualized, ghettoized prism.

My perspective
with all its flaws, contradictions, and imperfectionsis grounded in liberalism, rationality, and the ideals of the Enlightenment.

Yet my perspective also stays true to where I’m from: two Dominican parents, public school education, poverty, welfare, crime, section 8, and, most recently, divorce.

Ultimately, I plan to fuse these elements in order to provide the audience with an uncensored version of my experiences and viewpoints.

Finally, it is noteworthy that my blog will be updated frequently
most likely, twice a weekand even more when my life is in eventful stages.

Your feedback—random readers, friends, and family members—is of upmost importance to me. Be honest, direct, and critical!
