    The Puerto Rican parade has become a disgrace. I’m Pertorican and I do not attend because it’s really not Puertorican. Local merchants who have their kiosk are from other countries selling over priced foods that are not staple dishes from Puerto Rico. I know, I know I don’t have to eat it or buy it but I would really like to find foods from our ancestors used to feed us. Also they bring talent from other countries and hardly from Puerto Rico, how come? This year I read the closing talent was a woman I have never even heard of. To each his own, I refuse to attend, let others have their fun, I rather stay home.
