Racism in a 1957 US suburb

By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico

This video is about the attitudes of United States (US) citizens toward a black family moving into their all-white suburban neighborhood in 1957. Click on the following link to watch that video: https://youtu.be/xXQQ9o3R-Rc

These were the attitudes of citizens 3 years after the US Supreme Court decided that racial segregation was against the US Constitution. They were the attitudes of citizens 11 years before Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. And they were the attitudes of citizens 63 years before George Floyd was murdered by the police.

The key to eradicating racism is eradicating ignorance of those willing to learn. There is still too much ignorance today. Therefore, we must continue to inform today, inform tomorrow and inform forever!

Wanting to remain ignorant is a terrible decision.

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.
