New York Times recognizes “the overlooked history of Puerto Rico” and the Revolution of 1950


Remembering the “1950 Revolution” in Puerto Rico” … thwarted effort for independence!

WAR AGAINST ALL PUERTO RICANS

War Against All Puerto Ricans: Revolution and Terror in America’s Colony

Yesterday, in its Sunday edition, the New York Times recognized the Revolution of 1950 in Puerto Rico. The Times called it exactly that…a revolution.

The Times also acknowledged that this revolution is not mere “history,” but that it has continuing and broad implications for today.

The discussion occurred in an article about the book War Against All Puerto Ricans, which will also be released in a Spanish-language version on November 24, 2015.

The Spanish version is called Guerra Contra Todos los Puertorriqueños.

Here is the entire article, written by veteran Times journalist Sam Roberts:

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
