Juan González of Democracy Now! in Puerto Rico

Juan González provided a good commentary on the absence of Barak Obama in Puerto Rico’s primary and its potential ramifications. González argues that Latinos in the U.S. will read the symbolism of his absence as political apathy, but complicating the matters is the fact that so few Puerto Rican voters, who can’t vote in the elections, actually cared to go to the polls. Hillary Clinton mobilized her machinery, thereby underscoring how the colonial situation at certain moments gets exploited, and extended, not resolved. Juan González on Democracy Now!.
