Carnival queen Jennifer Lopez brought New York to standstill as she...

Jun 13, 2010 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Western Daily Press

Jennifer Lopez has always been proud of her Puerto Rican heritage. So Hollywood's most successful Latin American superstar couldn't have been prouder as she led a parade through the streets of New York on Puerto Rica day.

A pro statehooder, JLo, stole the show at the nearly defunct PRican Day Parade...

If this parade wants to survive it should include all of the Hispanic Caribbeans, living in New York...then it would be a true "in your face" demanding of rights (denied to that community for ove a hundred years already).

Puerto Rico has not been denied rights by the United States. I is not a state because a large majority of the people of Puerto Rico have not expressed a preference for statehood. More rights are denied to its own people by the government of Puerto Rico. For example, governments after governments have been homophobic and denied LGBTT people rights. Puerto Ricans demand all the benefits of statehood without the responsibilities of statehood. Many stateside Americans view too many Puerto Ricans, especially government officials in Puerto Rico, as biting the hand that feeds them.

Ask the people of the Virgin Islands what they think of Puerto Rican officials.

You got that right. Puerto Ricans want more say so? Heck, they run their own budget and have more of a deficit than any other State, per capita!

How about Americans of Puerto Rican roots who have either Spanish roots or African roots..... One root leads to another root and to another root and still another root????

We are either an American -- period --- or not an American. Jorge can really be uniformed and silly. No wonder UPR fired him. I bet he does not have a case against UPR. The UPR's legal department mostlikely finds him to be nothing more than a silly, uniformed, confused Gatfly.

Jorge you seem to lack the ability to be astute. You are always at the edge of the target and never on the bull's eye or even close to the bull's eye. La...la...la.. land????

Thank God most Puertor Ricans are on a completely different wave length from the one you are on.

Never underestimate the power of culture.

It is better to integrate than to "melt" into a culture.

And Jorge is not this thread's topic.

Your silly, off-the-wall comments you have made this thread's topic. I bet your former staff members, who worked with you at UPR, thank God that today you are out of sight and out of mind. I bet you had all of them confused with your confusion. Are you a blonde? You know the dumb blonde jokes...

"...In 2002, the average individual income for Stateside Puerto Ricans was $33,927.[citation needed]This represented only 68.7 percent of the income of Whites ($48,687) and was below the average incomes of Asians ($49,981), Cubans ($38,733) and Mexicans ($38,200)...."

How many Americans, of Puerto Rican roots, earn $33,927 or over?

"...Stateside Puerto Ricans have been associated with problems faced by communities with persistently high poverty levels. Some have characterized them as part of the urban underclass in the United States.(Rodríguez 1989) However, while except for Dominicans, Stateside Puerto Ricans have among the highest poverty rates of any group in the United States (22.8 percent for families), over three quarters live above the poverty line. This rate is also about half the poverty rate of Puerto Rico in 2000 of 85.6 percent.(PRLDEF Latino Data Center 2004)

Compared to other racial-ethnic groups in the United States, the Stateside Puerto Rican poverty rate is only exceeded by that of Dominicans (29.9 percent). The Stateside Puerto Rican poverty rate is higher than every other major group: Whites (6.3 percent), Blacks (21.3 percent), Asians (7.1 percent), Mexicans (21.2 percent), Cubans (12.9 percent), Central and South Americans (14.1 percent) and other Latinos (13.2 percent). What is troubling about these statistics is that among the Latino groups, Puerto Ricans are the only ones to arrive in the United States already as U.S. citizens (Cubans who land on U.S. soil are U.S. residents), which should be an advantage but apparently is not in terms of socioeconomic status...."

Did you notice "citation needed" in your own post? Where's the data, wiki-man?

Do you suppose this could be a strong argument FOR Independence? That's how it reads to me. Many Latin American leaders (over the years) have pointed out how devasting the PR dependence on "the system" has been. Thanks for sharing this with everyone.

For the mostpart, yes. Because the Italians and French were also taking part in Caribbean expansionism at the time, the term was used to describe any/all Caribbean-born Spaniards/Italians/French. As those people fled to the US during the revolutionary period, the term was twisted to mean mulatto... especially in Louisiana and Florida.

~~~~~~~~~~

Now you admit to all of us that you enjoy being dishonest with other members of Topix. You told me that you are gay and an alcoholic. Now you're not??? You said in several Topix postings that you were fired from UPR because you are gay. Are you also lying when you say you are Puerto Rican?

I am Upfront Yankee because I am upfront honest and a true Yankee. My family on my mother's side traces back to Rhode Island and New England before the American Revolution. I am proud of who I am and find no need to tell lies or play games with my identity. I think there is no person more despictable than a liar. Do you also lie to yourself. To thine own self be true.... must not mean anything to you.

If you lie to us that means you do not respect or value us. Shame on you. Since you admitted that you are a liar, I do not trust any of your postings.

By the way, I could even have some Mohawk Indian blood in me. I have a suspicion that a Mohawk got involved with one of my ancestors. During college, my roommate and special friend was a Mohawk Indian. I would love to have some Native American blood in my family tree and in me. My Mohawk Indian friend smelled like a fresh meadow of clover. He would never lie to anyone.

I wonder if your name is really Jorge. I bet your nose keeps growing longer as you tell lies.
