By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico
A retired United States (US) general is concerned about the future of the US. Click on the following link to watch a video where he explains that:
He makes an excellent point that the US government (USG) should use this unprecedentedcivil unrest to finally address itshistorically institutionalized structures of racism. He urged Trump to take this opportunity to unite the country.
The problem is that Trump is not interested in governing for 100% of the citizens. Trumps supporters voted for him, because they want the US only for the Whites. That is why Trump will never pay attention to the general!
Puerto Rico has been a US colony for the past 121 years. The USG militarily invaded her to force that relationship. Puerto Rico, at the time of the invasion, 1897, enjoyed real self-government as a province of Spain.
The USG has been in violation of the United Nations’ (UN) Charter of 1945 that prohibits colonialism. The USG has ignored 38 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. Just like now, the USG refused to take advantage of the opportunity and eliminate its racial injustice towards Puerto Ricans.
Therefore, the civil unrest will continue, because there is no peace without justice. We need to continue to educate ourselves to create a real democracy for the 100% of the citizens. We do, because those who govern for only 1%, have never wanted LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!
Trump doesn’t represent them!
