special thanks to
Diego Rivera

Diego Rivera is a man who stand up what he believe in, and I an all the other lives who he effected thank him. For showing poverty in a beautiful way and trying to make a change by using his artistic skills to get the people of untied states to make a change and do better for themselves and stop letting the rich walk all over native Americans they should be able to have equal rights just like any other American. he didn't want an individual race to be targeted for failure and become poor so he help fight in his own unique way.
