Chu Defends Boricuas on ESPN.com

A blog buddy of mine sent me this link from a forum on ESPN.com. A guy poses the question "Why is Puerto Rico allowed to play?" referring to the olympics, particularly the game between the US and Puerto Rico. Check out this guys comment on Puerto Rico, which is ignorant, arrogant and racist; a typical comment from an average American joe, hoo rah!

Puerto Rico is TERRORITY of the USA. PR is listed as a "Commonwealth", but so is Virginia, so both are RULED by United States. There is NO President or ruling Party in Puerto Rico. Again, its ruled by a Governor appointed BY the US Government. Puerto Ricans THREE TIMES were given a national election by the USA to decide if they want to be a state, commonwealth, or its own country. And all 3 times, they chose "CommonWealth". Why? Because Puerto Ricans are a lazy bunch of people who have always been riding the backs of larger governments. They were dominated by Spain for hundreds of years. All of them were given what they needed to survive by the Spanish royalty so that they can work on that measly island, which mainly served as a military lookout island (kind of like Hawaii's origin). Then when the USA defeated Spain in the Spanish-American War, it was already in the blood of Puerto Ricans to be baby fed by a bigger country because they don't know how to rule for themselves. This is why they choose "Commonwealth". They need pampering and the U.S. money, and don't know how to rule for themselves. Even being classified as a State is too much work for them.

If this island is nothing more than a lab mouse for us, then why not just tell the Olympics we're going to pull our P.R. terrority out of the Olympics starting right now? That's what we should do. If Puerto Ricans complain, we'll tell them "Oh yea? then we'll make you become your own country" You know they won't like the idea of human rights so it should work.

But Don Chu doesn't sit around letting his people go undefended. So here is what I had to say:

I would like to thank you for making the case FOR Puerto Rico. In your comment you have just described the exact political condition of Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico IS a colony RULED by the US. Gees, and the US talks about liberty. How the heck can they go "free" Iraq when they have another nation in chains? Isn't that hypocritical.
You're Puerto Rican history is off my friend. First, the US has never given a national election to the Puerto Ricans. All referendums, as theyre called, have been insular and non-binding, meaning the US didn't recongnize any of the results. Second, Puerto Ricans didn't choose commonwealth 3 times. In fact, in the last referendum, they choose, "Non of the Obove" because they realized that they weren't going to be taunted with a fake referendum. Thirdly, Puerto Ricans are not lazy. The island produces more professionals (doctors, lawyers, ph.Ds, etc) per capita than any state in the union. Furthermore, they obviously must be hard workers if they were able to defeat the US. Fourth, the only money given to Puerto Rico is for federal purposes, i.e. to maintain whatever federal property they have their (bases, postal service). Fifth, Puerto Ricans would commit suicide before becoming a state of a racist, arrogant, self-centered country.

I find it amazing that you, an American, a representative of democracy and self-determination, is speaking in such a dictatorial fashion. Lighten up man. Read a book.

I urge every boricua to go post a comment and show stevo002 what boricuas are all about. Just click on the link above.

I wasn't riding anyone's back when

I had to walk 8-10 miles a day in

100 degree or higher weather with

SHAME ON YOU...

I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS. UNFORTUNATELY WHAT IS HAPPENING IS THAT LATINOS DON'T SUPPORT LATINOS...THAT IS THE BOTTOM LINE...WE SHOULD BE LIKE THE ANTS, WALK TOGETHER TO ONE COMMON GOAL. HERE IN THE US THERE IS A LOT OF RACISM, MORE IN LATINO COMMUNITY THAN ANY OTHER RACE.

I SEE MY LATINOS SUFFERING BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT GIVEN THE PROPER INFORMATION TO MAKE WISE DECISIONS.

WHITES EDUCATE THEMSELVES TO KNOW HOW TO USE US TO MAKE THEM MONEY.

I SEE TOO MANY INMIGRANTS BEING USED AND ABUSED BY THIS WHITE FOLKS.

I SEE JUDGES SENDING THIS PEOPLE BACK TO THEIR COUNTRIES FOR WANTING TO WORK...BECAUSE THE WHITE FOLKS DON'T WANT TO DO THE JOBS THE INMIGRANT DOES...

WHO IS GOING TO PICK OUR PRODUCE???HOW MUCH MONEY WOULD WE HAVE TO PAY TO EAT A TOMATOE???

AGAIN, ALL OF THE CORPORATIONS HIRING CHEAP LABOR AND BRINGING A PRODUCT FOR US TO BUY AT HIGH PRICES???

I'M TIRED OF MY RACE NOT HELPING EACH OTHER OUT...SPECIALLY IN CORPORATE AMERICA...IT IS A SICKING WORLD HERE...UNFORTUNATELY, SOME PEOPLE LIKE ME HAVE TO WORK FOR A LIVING TO SUPPORT MY FAMILY BECAUSE WHEN I TRIED TO LOOK FOR EMPLOYMENT TO HELP MY LATINO COMMUNITY I HAVE BEEN TURNED DOWN. EVEN THOUGH I HAVE 15 YRS OF EXECUTIVE EXPERIENCE, PARALEGAL, NOTARY AND LOAN SIGNING AGENT.

I HOPE THAT IF YOU READ MY BLOG, YOU THINK HOW MANY LATINOS YOU CAN HELP TODAY SO THAT WE BECOME MORE POWERFUL.

REMEMBER, WE ARE THE MAJORITY, LET THEM HEAR OUR VOICE.

I'm puertorican and all i can say is that alot of us talk shit too. I get pissed off because we aren't white and i've met enough of us that think we are. WE ARE LATINOS PLAIN AND SIMPLE!!!! I got to the point that I'm like what is going on here, so it doesn't surprise me that whites think so low of us. We need to stop hating on each other and as latinos to unite.
