Hurricanes do more than destroy homes, daily routines, power lines, agriculture, communication systems and levees. Hurricanes unveil unequal power dynamics, crush souls and create narratives, such as: “Puerto Ricans are American citizens.” This is dangerous and arrogant. It is dangerous because it is incomplete. It is arrogant because it presupposes that the solution to Puerto Ricans’ colonial predicament is U.S. citizenship.

As a Puerto Rican, I find this story disturbing. It deprives us of our self-determination, and it assumes that the master knows what is best for the slave. The question is not why Puerto Ricans are not treated as U.S. citizens. The question should be whether Puerto Ricans want to be U.S. citizens.

It is true that Puerto Ricans have U.S. citizenship due to a series of congressional statutes. But it is also true that these statutes were enacted without consulting Puerto Ricans.

Puerto Rico became a U.S. colony in 1898, when the United States purchased the island and its people as war booty from Spain as part of the Treaty of Paris. Before the United States invaded, Puerto Ricans had Spanish citizenship. The queen of Spain had signed the Autonomic Charter of 1897, granting Puerto Ricans representation (voice and vote) in the courts of Spain. Ironically, Puerto Ricans enjoyed greater political participation under the monarchy of Spain than under the United States. Soon after, in 1900, Congress passed the Foraker Act, implementing a military government in Puerto Rico. Sen. Joseph Foraker (R-Ohio) proposed Puerto Rican citizenship for Puerto Ricans because Congress did not want to give Puerto Ricans even the illusion of having the same rights as those on the mainland.

Eventually, Congress did give Puerto Ricans official citizenship under the Jones-Shafroth Act of 1917. But to this day, Puerto Ricans continue to be subjects of the United States without a right to vote for the president, without voting representation in Congress and without equal treatment compared with citizens born or naturalized in the United States. #PuertoRicoSeLevanta

Mi vidaa😍👑@daddyyankee @margy_09 - En medio de la crisis, de las largas filas, de la desesperación, luego de 2 horas salió uno de los grandes de Puerto Rico a darle vida y risas a los que estábamos allí.
No es solo hablar, sino actuar. Gracias a @daddyyankee por tu solidaridad con el pueblo. #PuertoRicoSeLevanta #puertorico #crisisisland

This is why I say it isn’t the diaspora place to come swoop in and buy all these properties. 200,000 Boricua families fled Puerto Rico as refugees of a “natural” disaster, who’s to say another 500,000 won’t have to go as economic refugees! I truly hope that all this money that has been raised by all these non profits are being put to good use, and are not just going to buy flashy shit for pictures and videos! I want to know how many people who rent homes and apartments have been put out on the streets since Maria, foreclosures are one thing rental evictions are another. Btw this would have happened even under statehood, it’s happened in Vegas, Detroit, New Jersey, Florida, it’s currently happening in Hawaii! —— Now Puerto Rico is bracing for another blow: a housing meltdown that could far surpass the worst of the foreclosure crisis that devastated Phoenix, Las Vegas, Southern California and South Florida in the past decade. If the current numbers hold, Puerto Rico is headed for a foreclosure epidemic that could rival what happened in Detroit, where abandoned homes became almost as plentiful as occupied ones. #CrisisIsland #PuertoRico #Colonialism #PuertoRicoSeLevanta #UnidosPorPuertoRico #VivaPuertoRicoLibre

The difference between personality and style... 🤔
:
Recently a friend of mine told me about this... You have to separate the person from their style. We don't like people's style, however, that doesn't mean is a bad person. If you deal with the style, you will reach the person, the heart and things are gonna be better and more productive. If you don't deal with the style, the next thing you will do is bump the person OUT and quickly, things will go out of control.... Of course, out there are toxic people as well, but thats not the case every single time. There too much goodness out there, we only have to attract it or reach it out. 🙏🏼💖

Escena tras escena, callar más no puedo. En resistencia con lo que antagoniza con mi esencia. Chantaje tras chantaje, bregar más con esto no quiero. En plan de romper apegos; soltando lo malo, agarrando solo lo bueno. Buscando urnas que solo voten por la verdad. En expedición de seres que su mente no dejen nublar. En resilencia entendiendo que aún hay seres dispuestos a amar.

Awesome movie. 🧙🏼‍♂️ There is always good to find someone who takes you to see good movies.

A sublime #sunset over #Boqueron Beach on #PuertoRico’s west coast pre-#HurricaneMaria. I wonder what this beach looks like now. #joshtravelssometimes
