Click on the above link to find out what rank Puerto Ricans hold in the top 20 largest diaspora in the United States.
For an island as small as Puerto Rico, we rank number 8 in the top twenty largest diaspora in the United States. What does this mean?
It means that the government of Puerto Rico has done a disastrous job at creating good jobs in Puerto Rico. The fact of the matter is that nobody can under the eternal colonial relationship Puerto Rico has always had with 2 empires. We were first a colony of Spain for 405 years. Then, we've been a colony of the United States for the past 115 years.
Colonies are for exploitation. This is why more Puerto Ricans live outside Puerto Rico than in.
In order for Puerto Ricans to be able to decide what is best for us, we must, on our own, learn what has happened to us since 1493. If we do this, the decision as to the direction we should go as a people would be much easier! Don't wait for the government to do this as it is not in its interest to do so. If you don't know the truth, you will want to remain a colony forever!
Join in 2 peaceful protests a year until Puerto Rico is decolonized. If we continue to do what we have always done, we will stay exactly where we are. So, we must peacefully protest, because those who practice colonialism don't believe in justice for all!
