The United States’ (US) “Pledge of Allegiance” ends with these words, “with liberty and justice for all.” Anyone who has studied US history knows that that has never been true. The recent insurrection at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021 is living proof of that. Click on the following link to learn about how ingrained white supremacy is in the genetic makeup of the USG:
33 years after the US Civil War, the USGmilitarily invaded Puerto Rico to make her its colony. The USG has never complied,since the very foundation of the United Nations (UN) 76 years ago, with its Charter that prohibits colonialism, because it is a crime against humanity.
The USG has ignored 39 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. http://webtv.un.org/watch/5th-meeting-committee-of-24-special-committee-on-decolonization/6051725003001/
If US citizens want a government that represents 100% of us, we must make sure that we don’t elect white racists to public offices. If we don’t, we should expect the historic continuation of, “… segregation now, segregation tomorrow, and segregation forever.”
We must force our government to govern for all of us.
