ABSTRACT
The present article tries to outline a critical and relational trajectory about the logics which were proposed for the development of Latin America after the end of the Second World War. To achieve this, I will connect the narration – as a complement for the analysis – an historical revision of some of the facts which took place in time of the European colonialization of the Americas, with the intent to show that even after a 500 year difference between the two events, the logics of power and exclusion, far from disappearing, have refined and perfected its instruments of negation (denial) of the “other”. I will propose, as a connecter between the past and the present, the analysis of the logics of territorial development which today outlines the processes sustained by the black Communities of the Colombia Pacific Coast, whose history, from the times of colonialization, is intimately linked with exclusion and marginalization, additionally facing, the imposition of out-of-context methods and discourses of planning; more so when these communities, from their “place” promote a series of reflections that does not only shows the problems and questions the actual discourse on development, but also, could be gestating (showing forth) alternative answers from a local level.
