Who is Che-Man?

Viva-Che & Che-Man Unite!

 Che-Man’s purpose is it to create awareness of these four “isms” that are the causations of oppression.

 Racism- a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to rule others. A policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination. Hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.

 Imperialism- a policy or practice by which a country increases its power by gaining control over other areas of the world and the effect that a powerful country or group of countries has in changing or influencing the way people live in other, poorer countries.

 Fascism- a way of organizing a society in which a government ruled by a dictator controls the lives of the people and in which people are not allowed to disagree with the government and very harsh control or authority.

 Terrorism- the use of violent acts to frighten the people in an area as a way of trying to achieve a political goal.

  To directly impact and change a social norm we must educate each other on the implications that these “isms”. And we must openly dialogue on how they have affected our lives directly and indirectly. By creating a RIFT in the social paradigm, we are forced to deal with these issues.

 Humanity’s future is dependent upon educating our youth and creating young strong leaders. The goal of my campaign is to educate and create a call to action for our youth and society at large.

Che-Man stems from a multitude of ideas and is a social commentary of what is happening throughout the world. You may have noticed that Che-Man is similar to the famous arcade game “Pac-Man”, this reference was appropriate because of the familiarity we have to Pac-Man as a culture. The ghosts are fitted with police issued riot gear, reminiscent of the police in Turkey & Brazil targeted at non-violent protesters. In Turkey 11 people were killed and more than 8,000 were injured, many critically. Each ghost represents a specific “isms”: Racism, Imperialism, Fascism and Terrorism. Now take  a minute and ask yourself and imagine, what if these “isms” did not exist in our society? How far more advanced would we be as a civilization?  By taking the first letters of these “isms”, the word RIFT is created. Let’s unite and create a RIFT!
