Race Reductionism: Neocolonialism and the Ruse of “Chinese Privilege”
Recent discourse within the U.S. and Singaporean liberal-left has championed “Chinese privilege” as an analytic of power within Singapore and Asia at large.

7. The End Of The Promises
Puerto Rico’s relationship with the United States has long been a subject of intense debate. In 1952, Puerto Rico adopted a new status that was meant to decolonize the island. In English, we call it a “Commonwealth.” In Spanish, it’s called “Estado Libre Asociado”, or ELA. Puerto Ricans were promised for decades that this unique status meant they had a special kind of sovereignty while maintaining ties to the US. Now, a series of recent crises on the island have led many to question that promise, and to use the word “colony” more and more.

6. The Bankruptcy Letters

Valentín Ortiz from the Centro de Periodismo Investigativo tells a hidden story from Puerto Rico’s debt crisis, that of the micro-creditors — thousands of low-income retirees and former public employees with claims that the government may never pay, ranging from hundreds to thousands of dollars. As a federal judge prepares to make a decision on whether they’ll get paid, this episode asks: how can the government settle its many debts — not just monetary — with its citizens?

5. Basketball Warriors
Despite being a U.S. colony, Puerto Rico competes in sports as its own country on the world stage. Since the 70s, Puerto Rico’s national basketball team has been a pride of the island, taking home trophy after trophy.

5. Guerreros del basket
Aunque Puerto Rico es una colonia de Estados Unidos, la isla compite bajo su propia bandera en eventos deportivos internacionales.

Pero en las Olimpiadas del 2004 en Atenas, la escuadra nacional le tocó un juego donde las fichas no estaban a su favor: enfrentar al Dream Team de Estados Unidos con Lebron James, Tim Duncan, Dwayne Wade y Allen Iverson.
4. Vieques and the Promise To Build Back Better
Weeks after Hurricane Maria, the Government of Puerto Rico accepted an emphatic suggestion from officials of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), put it in writing as if it were its own decision, and celebrated it would be used to rebuild in a “resilient” way. On the island of Vieques — which has a very high rate of cancer — they were supposed to rebuild its only hospital, destroyed by the hurricane in 2017. Now, a young girl has died from lack of care, and a neglected community fights for their basic human right: access to quality medical services.

El único hospital en la isla municipio de Vieques. Al sol de hoy, más de tres años después, esta construcción no ha comenzado.
