THIS IS MY COUNTRY

As some of you may know, I was born in Puerto Rico. I grew up believing that the American presence was “the best thing” that could happen to the Island. This premise has ruled my mind for most of my life.

Many significant events in Puerto Rico took place before I was born and while I was a baby. As I grew up, I heard some stories, wives tales, rumors …. but never learned about them officially nor were they taught in school. My frame of mind was modeled by those who taught me. I didn’t have all the fact as they were squashed by the “powers that be“.

As the voice of Don Pedro Albizu Campos was silenced by the “tyrant“, many, like me, were totally uninformed and lacked the real facts.

I must confess that I wanted to separate myself from the place where I was born for many reasons. Now I know these were totally unfounded and illogical.

Some may think that I have become a fanatic, that this is a phase, that it will go away. That won’t be the case. At this age, there isn’t much that I can do but continue to educate myself. To research and read … to find good sources of documented truth and information. I must continue to use this spot, my “space”, to share knowledge and information about Puerto Rico, my country.

As I listen to this anthem, as I look at the images, I feel chill down my spine, goosebumps on my skin and a swelling of pride of my place of origin. The lyrics say it all.

I’m very proud to say that I am Puerto Rican.

Educational post …. Who are Puerto Ricans??

Educational post .... What are Puerto Ricans??

A Puerto Rican (Spanish: puertorriqueño) (Taíno: boricua) is a person who was born in Puerto Rico.

People born and raised in other parts of the world, most notably in the continental United States, of Puerto Rican parents are also sometimes referred to as Puerto Ricans, even though they were not born in Puerto Rico themselves.

Since 2007, the government of Puerto Rico has been granting Certificates of Puerto Rican citizenship to any person born on the island as well as to those born outside of the island that have at least one parent who was born on the island.

Bor

Puerto Ricans commonly refer to themselves as Boricuas.

“The majority of Puerto Ricans regard themselves as being of mixed Spanish-European descent. Recent DNA sample studies have concluded that the three largest components of the Puerto Rican genetic profile are in fact indigenous Taíno, European, and African”.

The population of Puerto Ricans and descendants is estimated to be between 8 to 10 million worldwide, with most living within the islands of Puerto Rico and in the United States. Within the United States, Puerto Ricans are present in all states of the Union, and the states with the largest populations of Puerto Ricans relative to the national population of Puerto Ricans in the United States at large are the states of New York, Florida, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, with large populations also in Massachusetts, Connecticut, California, Illinois, and Texas.

The original inhabitants of Puerto Rico are the Taíno, who called the island Borikén; however, as in other parts of the Americas, the native people soon diminished in number after the arrival of European settlers.

Tain

The negative impact on the numbers of Amerindian people was almost entirely the result of Old World diseases that the Amerindians had no natural/bodily defenses against, including measles, chicken pox, mumps, influenza, and even the common cold.

In fact, it was estimated that the majority of all the Amerindian inhabitants of the New World perished due to contact and contamination with those Old World diseases, while those that survived were killed by warfare with each other and with Europeans.

Both run-away and freed African slaves (the Spanish, upon establishing a foothold, quickly began to import African slaves to work in expanding their colonies in the Caribbean) were in Puerto Rico. This interbreeding was far more common in Latin America because of those Spanish and Portuguese mercantile colonial policies exemplified by the oft-romanticized male conquistadors (e.g. Hernán Cortés).

TAin

Aside from the presence of slaves, some indication for why the Amerindian population was so diluted was the tendency for conquistadors to bring with them scores of single men hoping to serve God, country, or their own interests. All of these factors would indeed prove detrimental for the Taínos in Puerto Rico and surrounding Caribbean islands.
