    we have enough of them in massachusetts.... probably a bigger PR population in just worcester county than that whole "country"

    let them become a state and whatnot, maybe they will go home.

    My neighbor across the street is from PR and grew up in NYC. He is a fucking lunatic.

    More brown people = more democrat voters and indigents.

    It's bound to happen.

    We need to fix things with the 50 states we currently have before adding any more.

    Why would 'they' go home? There's already no passport or anything else needed to go in and out of the mainland to the island, as it is a territory. They simply currently do not have voting rights, nor pay federal taxes, nor really have any services provided to them other than the 'protection' of the nation for their island should things go bad.

    I think you'll also find the ones that are in the northeast are a small representation of what type of people are there. I think steve made a smiliar remark about black people in the north vs the south being different. Hell even white people in the north vs the south are different. The north just seems to attract the worst of the worst for some reason, and I don't know why. It's wrong to stereotype a country of people based on the few bad exports that made their way into your white hood.
    I worked for a company based out of PR for 3 years. Nice, normal, IT folks.

    This is probably the most pragmatic post I've read of yours. Someone is getting or close to getting laid.

    I would vote yes. And I agree with B about people, some are bad, some are good, some are apathetic, etc. It doesn't matter what color/nationality/heritage they have.

    I'm not disagreeing with your points here, but I do disagree with adding another state when we have so many issues already. More people = more problems (no matter their race etc)

    I say break it off until we get things straightened out here.

    No. No no no ... Everyone is the same.

    Lets look how good Puerto Rico is today.

    Wasn't that fun ? It's full of gangs, violent attacks, muggings, you name it. I'm being approached by a guy about opening a shop in Puerto Rico (Which I'll go for). But he's from Puerto Rico, and has described the situation. He's Puerto Rican, and has a level-headed view of the landscape down there. It's a dump.

    I like Puerto Ricans. I really do. Never have I run into a problem with any of them. And to prove that it's not a color thing, I hold them above Italians on any day.

    There is a reason Puerto Rico is a criminal dump. And it's not because "some are good, and some are bad". That's the route of bad racism. to ignore the truth that that race of people live that way by a clear choice is to deny them their unique attributes.

    When people say "There are some good ____ and some bad _____", what you're doing is stomping on their true existence. Lets say, I say "Some whites are good, some whites are bad". This sounds like a reasonable statement, yes ?

    Lets look at pure white areas and cultures. expectations are trailers, cheap, cheap living and meth. Then an elite class of powerful people. you think this, because it's the damned truth.

    Look to their native behaviors. It doesn't lie.

    They should let Alaska become an independent nation, then add Puerto Rico to the sinking ship and keep it an even 50.

    So all those crazy cars they build down there would finally really be from the United "States."
