ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SCREWING PUERTO RICO
I must confess that I didn’t really know the complex history that exists between Puerto Rico, my country, and the mighty imperialistic U.S. of A.
I’m truly ashamed to say that I didn’t find out about this history until 2015 when I found out about and read the book written by Nelson A. Denis “War Against All Puerto Ricans‘.

I went to a Catholic school in Río Piedras, somewhat a suburb of San Juan, ran by American nuns and priests.
Samantha Bee takes a humorous look at a synopsis of this history in light of the humanitarian disaster caused by Hurricane María and the response by the American government lead by the “Moron-in-Chief“, Drumpf.
Take a look!
The American government’s slow response to the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria is actually nothing new.
On Wednesday’s “Full Frontal,”, October 4, Samantha Bee explained that the way Drumpf “helped” storm-ravaged Puerto Ricans followed a 100-year-old pattern.
“If you’re shocked by this, then you are not Puerto Rican,” said Bee.
“Truth is, we’ve been treating them like the unwelcome nephew under America’s stairs for more than a century.”
Aided by “Hamilton” star Javier Muñoz, who has family on the island, Bee then dissected the island’s history of “getting screwed with their pantalones on by the United States.”
