By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico
James W. Loewen speaks in this video about the fact that slavery was indeed the reason for the United States (US) Civil War. Many US citizens don’t know our realhistory, because the US government (USG) uses its education system to conceal its evilness. Click on the following link to watch that video:
The USG also considers Puerto Ricans as belong to an inferior race. After the USG militarily invaded Puerto Rico to make her its colony, it inserted the US Supreme Court’s decision in the slave case of Dred Scott vs. Sanford,into the Treaty of Paris of 1898. That treaty states that the rights of the Puerto Ricans shall be determined by the USG.
White supremacy is alive and well today. The most dramatic and recent expression of it is the George Floyd, “I can’t breathe”.
The USG, still today, has never complied with the United Nations’ Charter that prohibits colonialism for the past 76 years.
The USG, still today, has never complied with 40 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans.
And, the USG, still today, refuses to comply with the recent vote in the UN’s General Assembly to end its over 60 year blockade of Cuba.
It is, therefore, perfectly understandable why the world considers the USG as the biggest threat to peace!
US citizens must learn our real history. Then, we must force our government to stand for liberty and justice for all, by engaging in permanent resistance.
We can’t improve our nation based on lies!
