    PR was massively in debt before Maria and since it was their own fault nobody really wanted to help them. Now they can say their problems are an act of god and america has a moral obligation to give them $100 billion .

    Black and Brown countries that revolt against European influence invariably become basket cases of crime and poverty. Now they want back in just for the money, meanwhile they insult the US by not having the often obese, low IQ, often criminal, non-productive inhabitants learn English. Any money given to them will end up in the usual way with non-White countries, it gets channeled to a few warlords, criminal gang chiefs, etc. so they can get re-elected, with some coming back to democrat Swamp Rat, for the same reason.

    By no means...

    ... one need only to take a look at the devastation...

    ... to see that they aren't exaggerating.

    MY LORD!

    Can you not see with your own eyes the absolute total annihilation on the island? Do you just close your eyes when the video is being shown on all the 24/7s?

    They do not need to exaggerate....the CAT 5 hurricane that hit them directly, destroyed the entire island....

    even if they were not in debt, the cat 5 destroyed everything....no one can pick up the pieces in those conditions...

    Puerto Rico isn't a country and apparently, the majority of it's population is white.

    As for the topic at hand, I don't know. Probably.

    Not only is it not a country, it is a territory of the United States. Puerto Ricans are natural born citizens of the US.

    Someone who does not know that PR is part of the US doesn't have much credibility in talking about it or its population.

    Most of PR is hispanic though the territory likes to say they are white to entice business to come.
