Here is Puerto Rico's real history:
==========
Just keep in mind that of the 77 towns on the Island, all of the interior (Cordillera Mountain Region) were settled by Europeans during the mid-to-late 1800s, which historically speaking was yesterday. Natives were essentially gone from the landscape 3 centuries before and Sub-Saharan slavery was NEVER much of a presence since slavery was banished in the late 1800s.

And not one of these towns was a slave port (on the coast only)or had many plantations.

Slavery in Puerto Rico NEVER reached the social, economic or commercial scope that it did in Hispaniola (Dominican Republic and Haiti), Cuba or Jamaica.

When slavery did exist in Puerto Rico, it was present almost exclusively in the coastal ports, while the central region of the Island remained essentially uninhabited til the 1800s.

So while that may be YOUR DNA profile, those DNA profiles vary greatly from region to region. These central Island areas were settled primarily by EUROPEAN immigrants who came from Maritime Spanish Provinces of Mallorca and Canary Islands, all regions of Iberian Spain, Corsica and French (white) emigres who fled Haiti during the Slave Revolts that chased the the white planters off the Island.

Irish immigrants, German merchants and even documented English, Dutch and Danish families fleeing to an Island that had NO history of civil war came also and stayed.

Even White colonists from mainland South America (especially Venezuela) came to settle in Puerto Rico to flee the continuous colonial chaos they could no longer live under.

In fact, there is documented immigration from French Louisiana of people known today as "Cajuns" who the fledgling "USA" purchased the Louisiana Territory in 1803, fled to Puerto Rico to re-establish their agrarian farms.

They fled because they were French and often Spanish-speaking Catholics and they knew that life would be difficult for them when English-Speaking "American" Yankees would take over.

So in recap. ALL of Puerto Rico is NOT ONE BIG race orgy. You will find people who are predominantly or even exclusively European, Sub-Saharan (a minority), and to lesser degree "indigenous".

I said if "yall have african ancestry"....even one drop then you are black....which means MANY if not the majority of you. I realize that not ALL puerto ricans are black, but many are. let's get real here. You may look passe blanc/mestizo but you are NOT white. Many puerto ricans were grouped in black slums during segregation era America to make their own "Spanish" Harlems...HARLEM...the blackest black city in the nation!

Even if they are black hispanics, is it fine that they identify with being hispanic/latinos? They are very proud of that. Must they bubble in "black/African descent" on their forms they fill out for jobs, school, and otherwise?

Some of them are black the way we describe black in America but there are some white Puerto Ricans all well. (What we call white) in America for the most part they are mixed race people

Race is irrelevant to desperation.

No, not really. You can't compare the mixture of Puerto ricans and dominicans to black Americans because AA are not as mixed.

You don't really believe that Jennifer Lopez is a black woman do you? Lol my child smdh. The differences are by culture and history. LA Creoles or Creoles have actually been here living as "mulattoes" in America before West African slaves were brought here which is why Creoles of color were free people here. Hence the economic stronghold they had in New Orleans for many many years. Not much of a difference though. Same ship, different trip. But why are you, like so many other black Americans, so desperate to claim everyone with a little tan or dark eyes as black? J-Lo is not a black woman dear. Look at her features. And if you can pull up her history and find some African grandmother or great grandfather, then lets see it.

Blacks or anyone on here who claim black, please check your own history before trying to dig up hispanics/latinos history. It makes you look foolish to try claiming all minorities as black. Are East Indians black too? What about Native Americans, black too? Even whites can trace back a family member to Africa, but you will be quick to say they are not black. The baboonery smdh.
