The 2016 almanac identifies every Boricua in the US. When you look into the time and effort that Centro put into compiling the stats you actually realize that we are a nation. And that comes from the information each person has provided to identify as a Puertorriqueño-a. We are a proud people that has been under foreign control for over 522 years yet we are able to say we are Boricuas. That alone is very impressive. Imagine what we could do if we as a people had the opportunity to control our own destiny.
