Irma-Maria: A Reparations Requiem for Caribbean Poverty


“THE COLONIZED CARIBBEAN HAS TAKEN CENTER STAGE” … to the oppressing nations!

Vice-Chancellor of The University of the West Indies (UWI), and leading Caribbean historian, Sir Hilary Beckles issued the following statement on the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria:

“Hurricane Irma’s fury preceded Maria’s by a deadly Caribbean second. Together they constitute the familiar sound of death and destruction reminiscent of a colonial past that clings to the present and is determined to possess and own the Caribbean future.

The chain linked imperial legacy that still imprisons the islands, keeping them politically fragmented and economically divided, was exposed as both cause and effect of a fragile region still feeling the presence of an imperial ethos that assigns to them a reality of structural dependency. Irma-Maria blew away the roof of the long and ongoing imperial cover up, and critically, was revelatory of the horrific history that dwells in the ruins of the present.

The destruction is an instruction for the survivors…

in crisis mode: PUERTO RICO


… and this is the ‘leader’ who sits in the Oval Office’! Need I remind him that Puerto Ricans ARE American citizens?
The Island is ‘broken’ due to continued years and years of intervention by the mighty, imperialistic U.S. of A!! 🇵🇷

Trump Tweets Puerto Rico Was ‘Broken’ Before Hurricane Maria

After criticism that he had not tweeted about hurricane devastation in Puerto Rico, President Donald Trump on Monday night appeared to blame the island for its suffering.

“Texas & Florida are doing great but Puerto Rico, which was already suffering from broken infrastructure & massive debt, is in deep trouble,” Trump tweeted. “It’s [sic] old electrical grid, which was in terrible shape, was devastated. Much of the Island was destroyed, with billions of dollars owed to Wall Street and the banks which, sadly, must be dealt with.”

Puerto Rico

Must I read between the lines to see the POTUS offering condolences, empathy for the suffering citizens of Puerto Rico, support for the rebuilding of the American territory?  Or perhaps, he has taken a cue from his evangelical support base……God takes revenge on those who offend….geez, what the hell did Carlos…

KO-125

~~September 26, 2017~~ 

TAKE A KNEE 

PROTESTING POLICE BRUTALITY ON AFRICAN AMERICAN CITIZENS

How can we forget this amazing past weekend?

It all started Friday at a ‘campaign rally in Alabama.

The ‘man’ is absurd, juvenile, vile, selfish, egotistical, ignorant, bombastic and basically intolerable.

A weekend to remember.

Another new low … of which there should be plenty since this ‘man’ has no bottom!

I feel this is important information about what is happening in the Republican Administration lead by Drumpf and what we need to be aware of.
Keith Olbermann series called “The Resistance” continues.
He has posted installment #125.
The video speaks for itself.
If this resonates with you, good.
If it doesn’t, just scroll away to the next blog.
Thank you!

A report by Samuel Hoisington for the Chronicle of Higher Education.

The University of Puerto Rico’s 11 campuses and central office are closed in the wake of the devastation wrought by Hurricane Maria.

“The whole island is without power right now, and the destruction has been catastrophic,” Joseph Martinez Huarneck, the university’s director of communications, told The Chronicle in an email on Thursday. “The communications infrastructure has practically collapsed. Cellphone and internet service are unstable. TV and radio stations, except three or four, are unable to broadcast.” He said it was unclear when the university would be able to reopen. “It will all depend on when power is restored,” he said.

Additional emails to Mr. Huarneck and other staff members weren’t immediately returned. A message on the university’s website says: “Due to the effects of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, our services and communications are limited. We will provide…
