He looks like a very typical nigga. The I-don’t-give-a-shit manner. But his TED talk is the one that I enjoyed most in a month. Ron Finley and his LA Green Grounds do one thing that is very natural but seemingly forbidden. They garden in public space like it’s their home. In a city filled with – like he joked – liquor stores, fast food and vacant lots.
With the greatest force – people – LA Green Grounds managed to gain storm of support, by voice and by hand, to occupy vacant space with lush green fruit trees and bushes. It is a natural idea – when you don’t have food provided, you grow it.
A bureaucrat of course would tell you it’s illegal, only to prove how pathetic society has become. That government naturally expects no one touches public space – like we don’t pay tax – is just not humane. Thinking of which, JUPYEAH has encountered a lot of problems and funny response from people like he said in the video.
PS. He was casually dressed only at the Talk. In reality, he has a label The DROPDEAD Collexion.
