I learned a great deal of facts from the film. Prior to the screening, I didn’t know that Puerto Ricans were very much discriminated against as the blacks were.

One of my friends in my high school who was 1/4 boricua once asked me “I don’t understand why Puerto Ricans brag so much about being boricua. What have they done to be able to brag so much.” He was always ashamed and upset to be Puerto Rican, which of course, angered me! He referred to the only achievement they have made was “inventing Bacardi.” Can you believe him? Now, I definitely have my ammunition and maybe, just maybe, I can convert him into a proud Boricua! 🙂
