David Yeagley on Sonia Sotomayor: "Is she really Puerto Rican?"?
I always like reading what David Yeagley has to say, he has a different point of view and usually comes up with something original to add to the discussion:

Is Sotomayor Really Puerto Rican?
by David Yeagley · May 28, 2009 ·

[link to www.badeagle.com]

She is being paraded as a “Latina,” a female “hispanic,” but, is Sonia Sotomayor really Puerto Rican? Is Barry Soetoro’s nomination for the Supreme Court actually hispanic?

We know she is American, which is more than we can say, for certain, about Barry (a.k.a. “Barack Hussein Obama”). Sonia was born in the Bronx of New York City. However, when she’s called a Puerto Rican–for all the political potential that carries, we then have to ask what exactly is a Puerto Rican.


Sonia Sotomayor

When I lived in Connecticut, I worked as a English Department assistant at Wilbur Cross High School, in New Haven. It is an inner city school, about one third black, a third white, and a third Puerto Rican. I developed various relationships with Puerto Rican students. They were generally considered transients, because they spent half their time in Puerto Rico, and half in New York, or the tri-state area (Connecticut, New Jersey, or New York). Many could not read or write well, English or Spanish, nor even speak very well. I know that, in the ’80’s, Connecticut was giving each Puerto Rican person over $600 a month, just for being Puerto Rican, just for being here in the United States. What I remember well is how attached they were to Puerto Rico.

Has Sonia Sotomayor ever been to Puerto Rico? In all the reports of her background, only her trips to Israel have been lauded. This is curious.

Puerto Rico is an island, with basically three kinds of people on it: Spanish, Negro, and what’s left of the Tiano Indians (a South American group). Most Puerto Ricans are a mix. It is a thoroughly mixed culture. So, in a way, “Puerto Rican” does not indicate a specific ethnicity at all. It is a place. If you’re Puerto Rican, you are from Puerto Rico. Sonia is not from Pueto Rico. That’s the first problem. Secondly, any sort of poverty is not ethnic in nature. Whatever her socio-economic circumstances in the Bronx, they didn’t make her Puerto Rican.

Furthermore, she didn’t even grow up in a Puerto Rican neighborhood, specifically. The “housing project” she lived in as a child was near the old Yankee Stadium, at E 161st Street & River Avenue, Bronx, NY 10451, specifically. That was some fifty years ago, of course. Unless things were drastically different, it wasn’t a predominantly hispanic neighborhood. Reports have said south Bronx, east Bronx, etc. Old Yankee Stadium is in south Bronx. Did the family move around a bit?

So, to say she is Puerto Rican is a serious misnomer, all the way around. To say she is hispanic is dubious, in that she has shown no significant association. As mentioned, the only travels being lauded are her trips to Israel. The Jewish “community” in New York is favorable toward her, because she has ruled favorably toward them, in court.

Puerto Rican by blood, by culture, by place, which is it for Sonia Sotomayor? I don’t see it any case. Blood is undefined. She doesn’t look black or Taino, so perhaps she is indeed white (Spanish), but white could mean any number of ethnicities that may be or have been in Puerto Rico.

Essentially, Sonja Sotomayor is beset with as many vaguaries as Barry Soetoro. It is a fad, being mixed, undefined, vague. This creates the illusion of transcendent globalism, humanism, person-ism. And thus the great emphasis on personal story, where the national elements are subsurvient to political artifice. This is all terribly frustrating, actually. It dilutes, it erases, it weakens all sense of nationality. Of course, that’s the point.

Born in the Bronx, she's a Yankee.

Pueto Rico is a US Territory like New York is a State, neither of them are ethnic group classifications, neither of them are racial classifications.

So, the MSM and politicos proclaiming her as a Puerto Rican rather than a New Yorker have to be showing their ethnocentric / racist slant already.

Isn't it time we call the MSM and the politicos on all their ethnic, racial provocation bullshit?
