Best Answer

Bonifacio was not chosen as our national hero because the Americans are afraid on Bonifacio's way of liberating our country. The Americans want to colonize our country but in order to fulfill this dream there should be a man to be catapulted from below in order for us to have national hero. Our national hero serves as our idol, and as an idol we must follow his steps. The Americans chose Rizal because he is a reformist,a reformist is not a hindrance in their colonization. Since BonifaCIO is a separatist, he is a thorn in their throats. Reformist seek only for reforms but separatist seek for FREEDOM!.
