We must all become sucker proof

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!

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.
