okay so here’s what’s going the fuck on in puerto rico.
monica puig, puerto rican, 22, ranked #34 in the world, got to fucking olympic finals in single women’s tennis. meaning she indirectly beat serena mcfucking williams. tonight, she went against #2 worldwide, angelique kerber, playing for germany.
and our amazing athlete and person, monica puig, beat that and just won us our first gold medal.
now, compare puerto rico and germany as countries. germany is a world power. puerto rico is a little island in the caribbean no one gives a fuck about. germany is rich. puerto rico is drowning in a $70billion debt no one in the world will talk about (which frankly surprises and disgusts me).
and we just beat the best of the best in worldwide women’s tennis.
we heard our anthem blaring in the speakers of the rio olympics.
we saw our flag, that for some time in the 1950′s we were forbidden to even own, fly on top of the rest.
