Hey!
I spell it Boricua. Wether is right or wrong I don't know. I know that when I write it no one has ever said if it's right or wrong. As long as you understand what I'm saying, Who cares?

I DON'T KNOW THE REAL WAY EITHER. WHATEVER THE REAL WAY MY BE. I THINK THE WAY SPELLED WITH A Q CAME FROM THE WORD "BORIQUEN"
WHICH IS THE FIRST ORIGINAL NAME OF PUERTO RICO GIVEN BY OUR INDIAN ANCESTORS THE
"TAINO INDIANS" SOME DAYS I SPELL IT WITH A
"C" & SOME DAYS WITH A "Q" WHATEVER FLOATS
BY BOAT FOR THE DAY.

PIPIOLA DE HUMACAO:

OKAY, ONLY INDIA TAINA DE PUERT RICO (HUMACAO) AND independentista without VOTERS, I guess you haven't done your homework, because you're still as IGNORANT as those who think that Puerto Rico is a seperate country from the US.

On 27 March 1998 I was enjoying my life by going to a nice Mall, watching a good movie, eating in a nice Italian restaurant and later
I went to a get together of REAL PUERTORRRRRRRIQUENOS BORICUAS. OH, I'm sorry I forgot TAINOS don't live by this life style and in another century.
So I guess YOU and YOUR little group of LOONEY FRIENDS will get together the next time and say that the END of THE WORLD is 27 0f March 2000 and you will all make a trip to the HEAVENS. NICE trippppppppppppppppp UNOFICIAL INDIA TAINA.
I know a good Doctor in Puerto Rico for you is name is Carlos Romero Barcelo and please STOP going to Dr. Ruben Berrios because you are getting worse every time you TALK.

THE SPANISH SPELLING IS "BORICUA" BUT "BORIQUA" IS THE ENGLISH TERM. THE "Q" CAME IN WHEN TAKEN FROM "BORIQUENIO" WHICH IS THE TERM USED FOR NATIVES OF PUERTO RICO.SO,EITHER SPELLING IS CORRECT.
PEACE , LOVE & MUCH RESPECTS...{BORIQUA}

With all due respect, it is "boricua" with a "c". I don't think there is a "boriqua" in the english langauge.

Ok,Now take out your parper and pens
Time for history class.

To start,spelling is what ever suits you at the time.But the corect way is BRIQUA.
Reason way? Let me tell you,the name of Isla is boriquen. white men came name it some thing else.then when then spanish,
porto rico,then puerto rico came and stayed.Now in there the people got to thinking well what can we do for our selfs
So some people stard to cut thurough.and took the name of the Isla From Tainos and made BORIQUA out of that. It's mor then that but this was easy and fun to do.

You all get an A for the day,

With my love you're alright.

Toma.r
