By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico
The only reason why Puerto Rico is a colony today is, because the United States (US) government (USG) has wanted to exploit her for the past 122 years.
Harvard University, as the US herself, was founded on white supremacy. And white supremacy, as we have witnessed with the insurrection at the Capitol on January 6, 2021, is alive and well. Click on the following link to watch a video that argues that the USG is the one that will ultimately decide the future of Puerto Rico:
The fact of the matter is that the future of Puerto Rico can only be decided by the Puerto Ricans. But to exercise our inalienable right to self-determination and independence, we must first decolonize our minds by learning our real national history. That would naturally propelus in permanent resistance to force the USG to comply with the United Nation’s Charter that prohibits colonialism since 1945.
The Harvard panelists in the video decided not to highlight the USG’s crime against humanity by maintaining Puerto Rico as its colony. They have chosen rather to advocate for equality in the US for Puerto Ricans.
Our struggle, like all other nations, is for Puerto Ricans to be able to be all that we could be by our own merits in our own national territory. It is, therefore, irrelevant whether Puerto Ricans are, or are notequal to other people of other nations!
Puerto Ricans just want to be Puerto Ricans.
