Do you know that the United States (US) national anthem was originally a poem written by a racist? An explicitly racist part of that poem was excluded when turned into the US national anthem. Click on the following link to watch an interesting video about US racism: https://youtu.be/zSZTHGOGA0Y
US citizens of good will have no reason to honor the US national anthem, especially after the world witnessed the white supremacist insurrection at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021.
The US government (USG) militarily invaded Puerto Rico to make her its colony. Puerto Ricans have been US slaves for the past 123 years.
Once again, the USG has shown its evilness by never complying with the United Nations’ (UN) Charter of 1945 that prohibits colonialism, because it is a crime against humanity.
Moreover, the USG has ignored, thus far, 39 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. http://webtv.un.org/watch/5th-meeting-committee-of-24-special-committee-on-decolonization/6051725003001/
In order for the US to truly represent liberty and justice for all, decent people must force the USG to do so by engaging in permanent resistance now, tomorrow and forever!
Decent people matter.
