The following video never answered its own question. Click on the following link to watch that video:
The answer is, because of the United States (US) government’s (USG) historical racism.
The USG invaded Puerto Rico militarily to make her its colony. Therefore, Puerto Ricans have been enslaved by the USG for the past 123 years!
The video mentioned that about half of US citizens know that Puerto Ricans are US citizens. That also means that they don’t also know that the USG forced its citizenship on us!
More Puerto Ricans live away from our national territory (5 million vs. 3.2 in Puerto Rico). Most people don’t know thatthe USG wants that, so that it could, some day, repopulate Puerto Rico with a majority of Whites. Only then will the USG make Puerto Rico a state of the Union.
Most US citizens also don’t know that their government is committing a crime against humanity for the past 76 years. The USG has never complied with the United Nations’ (UN) Charter that prohibits colonialism.
Moreover, most US citizens don’t know that their government 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/
Therefore, all moral people must engage in permanent resistance to force the USG to comply with international law. We must because, like Martin Luther King Jr. said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
US historical racism.
