The problem of the minorities in US is the deeply rooted racism of that country. Do you know why the United States Government (USG) put Puerto Rico in the category of the non-incorporated territory?
The US Congress in 1898 deemed Puerto Ricans an inferior race, and therefore we were not worthy of the USG extending its Constitution to us. The non- incorporated territory status was interpreted by the US Supreme Court to mean that Puerto Rico belongs to but is not a part of the US.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. realized towards the end of his life how deep embedded racism is in the national fabric of the USG. He realized that the USG was totally opposed to ever allowing Blacks total equality to Whites.
Puerto Ricans today have no right that the USG has to respect. That language is in the Treaty of Paris of 1898. And that was put there specifically from the iconic racist Supreme Court decision from Dred Scott vs Sanford to discriminate forever against Boricuas.
Therefore, the path to equality for Puerto Ricans is not in trying to remove the stripes from the zebra. It is not even about working to try to be equal to White US citizens. It is all about being all that we could be by being our own country. Click here to learn the difference: https://www.keepandshare.com/doc/6462438/01lucha-por-la-independ-pdf-517k?da=y
That is what the discussion will be at the United Nations’ Puerto Rico decolonization hearing this Monday, June 24, 2019 at 10 AM. You will be able to watch the entire hearing this year live on http://webtv.un.org/.
Get involved, because those who believe that Boricuas are inferior people don’t believe in LIBERTY AND IN JUSTICE FOR ALL! https://www.facebook.com/groups/1697349163904877/
