Scratching head. Copy and paste where I said the majority of Latin America is black?
That's what the thread starter is suggesting.

BTW

Immigration to Latin America wasn't limited to Spain. Obviously you are making up Latino history as you go along.

Don't blame the USA because Haiti's dictators are selfish and greedy.

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".

Funny how you claim predominantly white, and minority black, and the least are actually indigenous...you are the epitome of a coconut

Dont forget the french charged the haitian republic with a bill they had to pay due to the slave owners loss of money. They kidnapped toussaint under false pretenses also. They are just as bad as the rest of the colonial powers.

Very true ^^^ in which I believe they may still be paying off. Even Canada was sending Haiti aid, but recently stopped all aid to Haiti I believe.

We blame both. There are many investments, projects, and luxury hotels, buldings, etc being built right now, but sadly most of these things will probably be owned by rich Syrian/Lebanese Haitians and white foreigners.

Haiti defeated 3 white superpowers, French, Spanish, and Brittish...that's why they kept the country poor.

okay...i don't look "black american", i look more "dominican", so therefore my statement: dominicans look like "black americans" because i see myself as black american. You're talking about "in general", black americans have a different "look" than dominicans, who are often seen as "whiter"/more "spanish". However, sir i am letting you know that there is a good chunk of black america that looks just like the dominicans you pictured.

I have been exposed to some luxury hotels and resorts in Haiti and I hate that much of it is owned by none blacks. But they have nobody to blame but themselves especially the rich black haitians. They should have invested in Haiti instead of buying stupid mess.

I agree ^^^^. Haitians have given their power or too much power to outsiders when it should have been kept in their hands. Maybe someday.

Once again I`ll explain this. THE MAJORITY (Not all) HAVE MAJORITY AFRICAN BLOOD because it was not an immigrant hot bed. So show me any data where for a long period of time prior to Trujillo that Europeans where so itchy to come to the DR. Even when Trujillo was in power Spaniards still didn`t want to come because he was a murderer and a dictator and Europe was in-thralled in WWII.
Since the Dominicans are such a mixed nation then where are these proud white ancestors of yours??? THEY EITHER DIED OFF, got out breeded or left the island. Who did they get out breeded by? Blacks and mixed race people. The DR doesn't have an old Spaniard population it`s a newer population of whites.
If a slave owner has a daughter with a slave and she get`s her freedom, then has a kid with a black guy who has a great grandfather who is Spanish and they have a kid, then what do you call that kid? Black. The kid could still be light skinned with green eyes, but genetically he is majority black. The DR just a lot of white men f-ing and whitening up the DR population. C`mon yo Trujillo made it LAW in the DR to whiten up the nation.
Ya're still full of deluded Yank backyard BS, while ya keep spoutin' utter nonsense w/o knowin' anythin''bout us L.Americans. ;-) Well then, ya wanna see white DomInicans?!

- here ya can see many, & even those mixed w/ Amerindians ;-D

lol omfg. what you just described is a "true quadroon". I have a quadroon baby cousin, but he's not creole he's AA. And he doesn't look "white". Most quadroons do not look completely white. There are a lot that can pass for white, but most you can tell they've got "something" in there besides white. That being said, White yanks are good at telling who is white and who is mixed with something if they've been in america all their lives. Most whites in america are not quadroon. 1/5 of whites have "some" black blood but it's more like 1/32 or some ridiculously small amount.
Yeah, sure, from 12% to 30% & all 35% of 'em present White Yanks, like the true Yank pass IViggers, although ya can't even recognize 'em. & if we apply ODR it'd be more than a half. ;-D

- one of his grandmas is an Afro-BRA woman, the other one was mixed Euro-Bramerindian (mestizo) & yet ya saw him pure White! ;-D

So true. But it makes me wonder where did they go wrong with these people defeated their enemies during the revolt. It's almost as if blacks around the world are too afraid of ownership.
