A Puerto Rican Moment …. “It Happens …. Puerto Rico is still a COLONY …. “!!

PUERTO RICO IS A COLONY OF THE USA

THE AMERICAN EMPIRE IS ALIVE AND WELL

I’m aware that the graph above only mentions Puerto Rico.

I found this graph in a Facebook Page dedicated to Puerto Rican issues.

Yet, as I went looking further, the USA has actually  sixteen territories.

Five of these are inhabited.

The rest are small islands, atolls and reefs.

What do you call a country that is the “owner” of lands beyond its borders?

There’s a question that confounded Pedro Albizu Campos, is now being asked:

“How is it that owning one man (slavery) makes you a scoundrel, but owning a nation (Puerto Rico) makes you a colonial benefactor?”

American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands and the US Virgin Islands are also considered to have a colonial relationship with the US because its citizens are also subject to the laws of the US Congress passed without their consent.

These territories, along with Puerto Rico, are known as unincorporated territories.

Currently, there are sixteen territories of the United States, five of which are permanently inhabited: Puerto Rico, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and American Samoa.

Ten territories are small islands, atolls and reefs, spread across the Caribbean and Pacific, with no native or permanent populations:

Palmyra Atoll, Baker Island, Howland Island, Jarvis Island, Johnston Atoll, Kingman Reef, Wake Island, Midway Islands, Navassa Island and Serranilla Bank.
