Duh...both?! LOL- anywhere they used slave labor, bingo! You have got an African infusion, including Mexico. I remember once going to Puerto Rico and remarking to my mom- "Hey, some of these people look BLACK!" It had never occurred to me what the history was. Interesting...although my brother and I have a White father, we inherited the color gene in different ways. His complexion is quite fair and yet he has a 'fro of sorts. I have an olive complexion with a bit of Native features, as well...and rather straight (but thick) hair.

you can't have a puerto rican without black! this is fact that was introduced to me by puerto ricans! the Majority of puerto rican are a fusion between the tribe of Indians that inhabited the island, the black slaves, and the Spanyards.

Your question is silly for this reason.

there is a mix period. latino is NOT a race! its culture of mixed people influenced by African descendants, Indians, and Spanyards.....how can this be a "race"?

Most latin countries have an African presence. Spain is close to Morocco, Cape Verde and other West African nations. During the slave trade, africans were brought to the Americas and the islands to work planations. Most latin nations are a mix of Europeans, native indians and Africans.

Yeah but in those countries it's not stratisfied as here in the USA. So they don't put White Puerto Ricans in one neighborhood and Black ones in another because the whole island is made up of mixtures! One family can represent different cultures through their features (so you can have a light-skinned father, a dark daughter and a red-haired mother).

only some Colombians are black or mixed, mostly near the coasts. The Bogotanos, and Boyacenses are white, or European-american Indian. But the local Indios ( Chibchas, etc) are not at all dark.

Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!

Calm down people, you're acting like we look just like Sub-Saharan Africans.

Most South Americans are just Native American/Spanish, only a few have Black blood.

Go to Argentina, and you'll see more blue-eyed people than in a lot of European countries.

People don't even know that their is more Afro-Brazilian, than they are Afro-Americans. Brazil second only to Nigeria as having the most black people

I heard there were plenty of blacks in Argentina at one time, and I heard they are dying off and forcing the black women to marry white ones

should have added, Spain, Italy and Germany.. and that is where many of the post WW II Germans migrated to.. Most of the Indians had been killed off by the late 19th century.. so there were very few to mix.

They can be any race. Some are pure Indian, others are pure White, descended from European colonizers, while other are pure Black descendents of black slaves. Then some are a mix of 2 or even all 3 groups. This is why they Hispanics are not defined by race

My point is that the mix of Black and people of Spanish/Indian ancestry isn't as great as the people in this topic would have you believe.

If you want the truth, the Indigenous peoples of South America really want to be White.
