First Generation American as a Stateside Puerto Rican

Direct Link to Video

An overview from my perspective growing up in the United States to Puerto Rican parents on the issue of American Colonialism. I go into detail regarding a Supreme Court of the United States case (US vs. Vaello Madero) and how it affected me personally enough to make this video.  Obviously this is my own perspective and I don't know all the ins and outs of this complex issue, however that shouldn't stop me from having an opinion of where we are a century after the Spanish American War and how colonies like the 5 inhabited unincorporated territories (Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, US Virgin Islands and the Northern Mariana Island Territories) still persist without the right to become states and more importantly be equal citizens of the United States and all of it's laws.

This particular video I concentrate on the SCOTUS case regarding the lawsuit from the federal government against a poor disabled Puerto Rican man whose only crime stemmed from a decision made 125 years ago.
