Do you know your history?

By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


The United States (US) was founded on white supremacy. To coincide with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the documentary, “Who we are” will be available in theaters near you. Click on the following link to learn more:

White supremacy was evidenced, when the US government (USG) militarily invaded Puerto Rico to make her its colony in 1898. That was 33 years after the US Civil War that formally ended slavery.

White supremacy was evidenced, when the USG refused to comply with the United Nations’ (UN) Charter that prohibits colonialism since 1945, and continued holding Puerto Rico as its colony. World War II had just ended, and the world was horrified by the atrocities of Nazi Germany.

And, white supremacy is being evidenced, as the USG continually ignores the UN’s annual resolution (40 thus far) asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. Colonialism is a crime against humanity, and a threat to peace!

Today, 87% of US citizens are dissatisfied with our nation. If US citizens really want justice for all, we will have to make that happen. Knowing our real history is the first step to get there.

How many of us are willing to walk across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Alabama for freedom for all?

Are we willing to fight for more justice?

Nací en NYC. Me mudé a Puerto Rico en el 1980 donde eventualmente me convertí en independentista al ver que PR no se administra para los boricuas. Me retiré tempranamente de la pedagogía para luchar 24/7 por la descolonización de Puerto Rico a través de marchas pacíficas anuales y empujar a la ONU hacer su trabajo. Necesitaremos un tsunami de gente protestando permanentemente para obligar a USA a cumplir con la ley internacional que prohíbe el coloniaje.
