By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico
The following video, produced by the United States (US) government (USG) in 1943, is about good people being persuaded, or suckered, into being prejudiced for the benefit of a small group. https://youtu.be/8K6-cEAJZlE
But isn’t that exactly the history of the US?
What did the USG do to the indigenous people of America?
What did the USG do to the enslaved people of Africa?
What caused the US Civil War?
And, what caused the insurrection at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021?
We can’t make the US great, if we are not morally great. We need to question our own personal morality to be able to engage in a constructive dialogue about the USG representing justice for all of its citizens.
Puerto Rico today is still a US colony for the past 123 years. By doing so, the USG is committing a crime against humanity as expressed in the United Nations’ (UN) Charter of 1945.
Moreover, the USG has, thus far, ignored 39 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. How many people know that? http://webtv.un.org/watch/5th-meeting-committee-of-24-special-committee-on-decolonization/6051725003001/
That educational video is fantastic. Let’s learn from it, and put it into action!
Don’t wait until the injustice personally comes your way. Remember what Martin Luther King Jr. said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
The truth will bring us together!
