The Status Issue

And so the story remains the same but the never ending insight into the Puerto Rico's status issue continues. As posted this past week at "SUPPORT THE DECOLONIZATION OF PUERTO RICO AND THE SIX PRO-INDEPENDENCE PROTESTERS" the vocal majority will be out on May 26th to support the six Puerto Ricans who have a court date for their act of civil disobedience in the U.S. Congress. While this goes on the silent majority remain in their shells not being heard.

I also read a very good essay entitled "Personal Essay: An Argument for Puerto Rican Statehood". One part makes reference to "boricuas living on the mainland (U.S) are fairly quiet" and to that I say the silent majority. Those too caught up in their "everything is cherry" lives and there isn't a care in the world to even bother, and those who are still scarred by past transgressions..the other silent majority.

It's obvious that the status issue will not just disappear like a magicians trick, although some may want it to. Regardless of political view, position and/or opinion and until the silent become vocal, can a true consensus on the status issue be reached. The arguments and opinions here are many....but take note, one must take the bull by the horns and deal with this issue.
