At least two Black men did not want republican politicians Lee Zeldin, a Long Island congressman, and the republican nominee for New York governor, and Alison Esposito, an ex NYPD cop and candidate for Lieutenant Governor of New York.

Some of the democrat politicians in the parade were: New York state governor Kathy Hochul, New York City mayor Eric Adams, Brooklyn Borough President Antonio Reynoso, New York City Public Advocate Jumaane Williams, Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez, New York state Attorney General Letitia James, Senator and majority leader of the United States Senate Chuck Schumer, and others.

Democrat and republican politicians in the United States of America are the same yankee imperialists.

Yankee imperialism in the Caribbean

A Brief History of the US Interference in the Caribbean Basin

www.telesurenglish.net, “From 1898 to 1933, the U.S. opens its imperialist foreign policy by presenting itself as “the protector” of the new nations in its immediate geographical surroundings.”

“The “Protectorate Era” acquired its first legal standing in 1901, when the Platt Amendment granted the U.S. rights to intervene in the affairs of Cuba, a country that became independent from Spain in 1898.” Click here to read more.

“Yankee Imperialism,” 1901-1934

Did you know?
* To obtain the right to build a canal, the United States covertly supported a secessionist revolt in the Panamanian province of Colombia in November 1903.
* President Theodore Roosevelt declared in December 1904 that the United States had the right and responsibility to militarily intervene in other nations of the Western Hemisphere in order to correct “chronic wrongdoing.”
* During the first two decades of the 20th century, the U.S. made “protectorates” of Cuba, Panama, the Dominican Republic, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Haiti, taking control of their finances, limiting their sovereignty, and periodically sending in troops.
* President Woodrow Wilson famously declared in April 1917 that the “world must be made safe for democracy,” but his message was not meant for what he called the “politically undeveloped races.”  His administration established and maintained authoritarian governments in Haiti and the Dominican Republic under U.S. military command.
* The U.S. occupations in Haiti and the Dominican Republic sparked guerrilla wars that took the lives of 290 U.S. Marines, over 3,000 Haitians, and an unknown number of Dominicans.
* From January 1921 to February 1923, General Enoch H. Crowder, as “special representative of the President,” ruled Cuba by decree, issuing orders from the USS Minnesota in the Havana harbor.

Leaders of the Americas and the Caribbean Miss Historical Opportunity to Deal Blow to US Imperialism

Gerald A. Perreira writes on www.blackagendareport.com, “The U.S. excluded Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela from the recent Summit of the Americas held in Los Angeles. While there was widespread condemnation against the U.S., only six heads of state had the courage to decline the invitation. An opportunity to strike a blow against U.S. imperialism was lost.

“And so it was that another historical opportunity was missed by the countries of the Caribbean, Central and South America, with the exception of a few who had the courage to take a stand. The majority of leaders from the region, those who Maurice Bishop so aptly called “yard fowls”, and those who should have known better, traipsed up to Los Angeles for the Summit of the Americas held on June 5 – 10th, 2022, despite the fact that Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua were excluded,” adds Gerald.

Perreira also writes, “Anti-imperialist organizations throughout the region were calling for a full boycott. It seemed so clear what had to be done. Although decisive and unified action against the Empire’s ruthless repression alludes us, with so many yard fowls in our midst, this was surely a red line that everyone could agree should not be crossed. Surely, it was clearly understood that the US did not have the authority, as Sanders pointed out, to enforce this type of exclusion, amounting to blatant and unacceptable victimization. It was not a difficult stand to take, even for the yard fowls. It did not require any degree of militancy, since it is simply preposterous that the US should exclude certain nations at its whim. But alas, once again US hegemony and white supremacy had such a grip on the conceptually incarcerated minds of our misleaders that even this crude and blatant disregard for the rights of sovereign nations was to be ignored. The Master tells them to jump and they cry ‘how high’. What a shame.”
