I will take Fish’s advice to include a history about Cobra Mansa’s history that gives insight on his influencers. Although the article includes the names of those who have influenced Mestre Cobra, the article is worded in a way that does not make this clear. I am also going to reword other parts of the article that contain plagiarism, copied directly from Cobra Mansa’s website. There is a significant amount of plagiarism in the article, so it is important that it is removed as quickly as possible. Tanaka’s advice to find a second source to strengthen credibility of the article’s content is important to ensure all information on Wikipedia’s article is accurate and not plagiarized. The second source I will include comes from the review titled Capoeira Angola from Salvador, Brazil. Grupo de Capoeira Angola Pelourinho by Mestre Cobra Mansa, Heidi Rauch from a collection of reviews called Ethnomusicology by Kathleen O’Connor. This article contains a description of the organization Mansa co-founded named Grupo Capoeira Angola Pelorinho or GCAP for short. This source was found through JSTOR, rendering it a reliable source of information.
