I really love that Bad Bunny is using his platform to raise other voices and call attention to these issues. I’m particularly grateful that they’re calling out on these anti-puertorican laws that benefit only the rich and displace people from their homes.

Bianca Graulau is an excellent reporter. Please take some time to watch this video, it’s excellent. 💜

For those unaware, after this video for "El Apagón" ("The Blackout") dropped this weekend, Puerto Rico has faced another hurricane which has left all its citizens without power once again, and many have already lost their homes to floods, and roofs to winds.

There is a federally imposed, unelected, fiscal oversight board that overrides any local laws. It’s a colony.
