Hurricane Fiona shows that Puerto Rico is still an American colony, 124 years later.
Can anyone educate me regarding the reason we care about Puerto Rico? Like, why do we still maintain control of it? Is it a military thing? Rich person vacation spot? I'm genuinely confused and curious about this.
Good piece, Jack. I assume you've read 'How to Hide an Empire' but if not I found it fairly illuminating as a person who has only rudimentary education on the U.S.'s grim subjugation, neglect, and malice of colonial Puerto Rico. If you haven't, I recommend it, may be a little surface-level for you on PR but connected a lot of dots for me between PR, the Philippines, Northern Marianas, Alaska, etc.
