Is United States (US) white supremacy a thing of the past? Is the US government (USG) today finally living up to its “Pledge of Allegiance” regarding “…liberty and justice for all”?

No. The recent insurrection by white supremacists at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021 is indisputable proof of that! Another proof that most people are unaware of is the case of Puerto Rico.
The USG militarily invaded Puerto Rico in 1898 to make her its colony. Today, Puerto Rico remains a US colony, despite that being in violation of the United Nations’ (UN) Charter of 1945 that prohibits colonialism.
Because colonialism is a crime against humanity, the UN has asked the USG, via 39 resolutions, to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. The USG has ignored them all with impunity! http://webtv.un.org/watch/5th-meeting-committee-of-24-special-committee-on-decolonization/6051725003001/
If US people of good will want its government to represent 100% of us, we must force it to. We must, because, as Martin Luther King Jr. said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” www.TodosUnidosDescolonizarPR.blogspot.com
The time is always right to do what is right.
