A Puerto Rican Moment …. “It Happens …. Never Harness our Tongues …. !!”


~~June 23, 2017~~ 

TAINO QUOTE 

“They say it came from Africa, carried in the screams of the enslaved; that it was the death bane of the Taínos, uttered just as one world perished and another began; that it was a demon drawn into Creation through the nightmare door that was cracked open in the Antilles.

Fukú americanus, or more colloquially, fukú – generally a curse or doom of some kind

specifically the Curse and the Doom of the New World.

No matter what its name or provenance, it is believed that the arrival of Europeans on Hispaniola unleashed fukú on the world, and we’ve all been in the shit ever since.”

IMPACT > INTENT

To those who considered Mr. Donald the best option because of one particular reason.

By choosing him, you chose everything that he stands for.

This explains it better than I can.

WHITE INVADERS

~Native Americans and the Federal Government~

At the start of the twentieth century there were approximately 250,000 Native Americans in the USA – just 0.3 per cent of the population – most living on reservations where they exercised a limited degree of self-government.

During the course of the nineteenth century they had been deprived of much of their land by forced removal westwards, by a succession of treaties (which were often not honored by the white authorities) and by military defeat by the USA as it expanded its control over the American West.

In 1831 the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, John Marshall, had attempted to define their status. He declared that Indian tribes were ‘domestic dependent nations’ whose ‘relation to the United States resembles that of a ward to his guardian’. Marshall was, in effect, recognizing that America’s Indians are unique in that, unlike any other minority, they are both separate nations and part of the United States.

This helps to explain why relations between the federal government and the Native Americans have been so troubled.

A guardian prepares his ward for adult independence, and so Marshall’s judgement implies that US policy should aim to assimilate Native Americans into mainstream US culture. But a guardian also protects and nurtures a ward until adulthood is achieved, and therefore Marshall also suggests that the federal government has a special obligation to care for its Native American population.

As a result, federal policy towards Native Americans has lurched back and forth, sometimes aiming for assimilation and, at other times, recognizing its responsibility for assisting Indian development.

… and it continues to this day!!

BLOODIED MOUTH 

Here’s photographic evidence that the dogs were set loose on the ‘protectors’.

Julius K-9

These are attack dogs from a private security company.

Remind you of anything?

The Dakota Access Pipeline has faced months of resistance from the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and members of nearly 100 more tribes from across the U.S. and Canada.

Amy Goodman and Democracy Now! producers were on the ground Saturday, September 3,  when the pipeline company attacked Native American protesters with dogs and pepper spray.

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe filed evidence Friday that the proposed Dakota Access pipeline route falls directly on sacred Sioux sites.

Hours later, Goodman and Democracy Now! producers witnessed unexpected construction at one of the sites.

“This was a Labor Day weekend.

The bulldozers don’t work on the weekend,” Goodman tells Joy-Ann Reid.

“But this weekend, the day after they gave over that information, they’re there bulldozing over those sites.”

THE FAIR WAY TO BUILD “THE WALL”

A war between the U.S. and Mexico spanned the period from Spring 1846 to Fall 1847, resulting in the defeat of Mexico and the loss of approximately half of its national territory in the north.

The war ended in 1848 with the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.

In the US the war is termed the Mexican–American War, also known as the Mexican War, the U.S.–Mexican War or the Invasion of Mexico.

In Mexico names for the war include Primera intervención estadounidense en México (First Intervention of the United States in Mexico), Invasión estadounidense a México (“United States’ Invasion of Mexico”), Guerra de la Invasión estadounidense, and Guerra del 47 (“The War of 1847“).
