We have numerous Puerto Rican born politicians on the state and local levels here in NY. To say they don't have power is absurd....

We are family whether born in Puerto Rico or in the states, let's stop this division. Most of my family are in Puerto Rico and I'm sure that a lot of Puerto Ricans have family in the States....btw I don't think he meant anything bad by using the word "they" idk I guess its open to interpretation but I don't think he intended to offend.

That poster does nothing but cause division.

That is his true specialty.

That poster has been nothing but a gentlemen to him.

Longislander is an excellent poster who really goes out of his way to stay above the fray.

The poster from PR (I refuse to say her name) did the same thing to T-I-R. Another excellent contributor.

I am firmly convinced that the poster from Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico at heart is a divisive and overall malcontent in life.

Until when will Puerto Ricans cease to be considered foreign, especially by our fellow Americans?

Even pro independence Texans, Hawaiians, people from Vermont who still long for their independent republic, even those from Mass. and Alaska who believe in an independence from the US are all considered Americans.

Puerto Ricans from the states are considered foreigners in the U.S. we all never called "Americans" entirely. The only ones considered true Americans are white people even though we know that's bs. I can only speak on my interactions with fellow Puerto Ricans that live in NY and CT have a lot of love for the island and are often proud of their heritage including myself.

This is a one track mentality here and its unbelievable that we are merely called Hispanics...just take a look at the employment applications It really shows how Un-American we are. That's why it angers me when some Puerto Ricans consider us just American when our own government doesn't give us that title.

And that is wrong considering that hundreds of thousands of Puerto Ricans have defended this nation. The descendents of the Tejanos and the Californios have unfortunately been treated the same as Puerto Ricans.

Part of the problem is that anyone Hispanic is often lumped together by those who are upset over illegal immigrants and incidents like the US flag being torn down and replaced by the Mexican flag at Montebello High School, and at the Maywood Post Office in California back in 2005.

He/she is playing you.

He does it every time.

You have seen a glimpse.

But, you will have to find out for yourself.

He acts like an elitist. But, truth be told. He probably doesn't have a pot too piss in much less a window to throw it out of.

He doesn't like Mainlanders and feels inadequate.

He is NOT pro PR anything.

As long as every American is treated unequally (in the States, American Samoa, Puerto Rico, LGBTT's, women, Blacks, Asians, etc....-the US will be considered "UN-American" by the whole world (not just you).

I agree, we have done so much for this nation my stepdad was a soldier in the Vietnam war and still gets no respect. We continue to be overlooked when so many Puerto Ricans died for this country!!!

So, a fellow New Yorker should be considered "us" (by another New Yorker) instead of "they".

TPMP,

Why do you hate Pam from California?

Don't feel sad at all. I love talking about Puerto Rico.
But, it's kinda sad. You are a 60 year old lady following me around the forums to create drama because you are so obviously desperate for attention in your real life. You are old enough to be my mother.
SHAME ON YOU!
I post no matter what. People eventually respond.
And if they don't?.
They simply don't. Threads get started here all the time.
We are a very small forum.
You don't like it?. Simple. Keep it moving, Pamela Alverado!
TPMP,

Why do you hate HG (a fellow boricua)?

Just your own agenda.
Viejo baboso!
There is nothing even remotely peaceful about you.
TPMP,

Why do you hate the LGBTTY community?

Why?

Why?

Why so much hate????
