NYRG Boricua Winter 1:17:13Huffington Post Live’s “Boricua Winter”

Many believe that Puerto Rico is on the verge of change regarding it’s relationship with the United States. In this segment airing on Huffington Post Live on Thursday, January 17th 2013, the media outlet compared Puerto Rico’s current “Boricua Winter” to that of the recent “Arab Spring,” where social media is credited with greatly affecting political movements and events. As I reiterate in this video clip, I remain neutral on the issue of self-determination for my ancestor’s island – while strongly advocating for equal voting rights for all legal American citizens.
