Obviously we are born in U.S. territory, so if the candidate meets all the basic requirements a Boricua can certainly do it.

When you post "we", do you include yourself back in Ohio?

Whose "we"????

Why are you in Ohio if you're so Puerto Rican?

The USA blacks are mixed and 33% of you Anglos are mixed with black in the USA. Throw in your mix with Native Americans which produces mongrel like Johnny Dept, Elvis Presley, Jack Dempsey and a host of passed blacks and you folks cut a rather comic picture with your petulant posturing as the epitome of racial pureness. The truth is you hold no exclusive rights to European ancestry in this hemisphere and your pitiful attempts at claiming it makes you the laughing stock of Europe.

They weren´t laughing so hard when they were eating rats and alley cats in 1945.

If it wasn't for the Marshall Plan, God knows if France's chefs would be pouring Vichysoisse over boiled rats feet.

Topix removed them.
The insults were racist remarks about PR president just being another niccer.

TOPIX removes posts with "niccer" but every other race,ethnicity is a free for all.
The most vile things are said about every hispanic group (not just by me) and they don't remove them.

TOPIX is so bias and anal about the "N' word that they usually remove any comment about Monty Pythons skit , "The Knights Who Say Ni" as they feel it leeds to the full "N" word.
