Puerto Rico and The Danger of Misinformation
How to help if you haven't already, or feel compelled to again. GlobalGiving is a wonderful organization that maximizes your dollars for impact.
It's been 23 days since the hurricane hit and over one third of the residents do not currently have access to safe drinking water. (But people really don't want you to know this.)
This is a domestic humanitarian crisis. But most Americans aren't educated enough to know that, either. Nearly half of Americans don't know Puerto Ricans are American citizens, after all.
I remember the absolute anger and dismay people had over the shit show that was Hurricane Katrina. There were celebrity phone banks, 100% coverage on the disaster, and we all banded together to bring relief, even though, and especially because, the victims were impoverished and included POC.
So my question to you is...where is the outrage now? Now that it's evidently clear Donald Trump Doesn't Care About Brown People?
