By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico
Ten years before Adolf Hitler became chancellor of Germany, a book was published in the United States (US) entitled, “Safe Counsel (SC)”. The book promoted the belief that White Americans are a superior race. This philosophy preached that inferior races should be sterilized.

The US government (USG) militarily invaded Puerto Rico in 1898 to make her its colony. The USG made sure that the Treaty of Paris of 1898 stated that the rights of Puerto Ricans shall be determined by the USG. In essence, that meant that Puerto Ricans have no right that the USG has to respect. This is more proof that White Americans believed that they are a superior race.
Do you know that seven years after the book SC, the USG sterilized a third of Puerto Ricans women, between 1930 and 1970, without them knowing that they were being sterilized? Also, in the 1930’s, Dr. Cornelius Rhoads, from the Rockefeller Institute, injected cancer cells to Puerto Ricans in an effort to kill as many as he could.
There were Americans that supported Hitler. One of them was Prescott Bush, the father and grandfather of 2 former US presidents.
Knowing this history explains why today more than a million US citizens have died as a result of the coronavirus, while, at the same time, 8 of the 10 richest men in the world are US citizens.
Many Americans will not be able to breathe, as long as US racism continues. Humanity would benefit more from democratic laws, than from this racist “safe counsel”.
Creating a non-racist and more perfect Union.
