oops..guess there were only 4 pages. lol.
*ahem*...JohnnyQ...who tha fuck are u?? always sumone tryin to come a sound "educated"...but u sound very ignorant...where does ur nutty professor ass come of tryin ta state tha "facts". I bet 1 outta 10 ur not even hispanic. better yet ur not even puerto rican. who tha fuck are u callin us bastards of tha Tainos?? bitch we are Tainos. Puerto Ricans are a mix of tha Spanards, Taino indans and tha Africas brought over as slaves. so don't go off callin us bastards. u wanna sound all smart but get ur shit straight first.
and like I said before...Puerto Ricans from tha states are tha same as tha ones from island. remeber that tha upbringing isn't tha same. in tha united states there is alot of racism...when u are raised around dat kinda enviorment it effects tha way u think and feel about other races...it like brain washing. tha people u choose tha hang out with or even date. it also have to do with WHERE u were rasied...me being born and raised in tha Bronx I can tell u this from experience because I use ta be one of those ignorant ppl. but when I moved to PR when I was 17-18 I opened mah eyes. I saw how different we were from tha PRicans from tha island. yea im not gonna lie. there's like a 10% or so if ppl here dat are racist...but its still so rare. and believe me when it comes to women PRican men don't discriminate...we love buffets...try alittle of everything.
so for tha gurl who started this topic. if ur really into Puerto Rican men...I suggest u move or take a vacation down here. u'll love it. its like a new world...and u'll have sleepless nights.*wink wink* lol jus jokes
Wait, wait..."you ARE the Tainos?"

The Taino genes survive...in a mixed form. The Taino culture persists and the language (the original being lost to time and colonialism) is being rebuilt by people that want it preserved. And is SHOULD be preserved...But that does not mean that the Puerto Ricans ARE the Tainos. They are what is left of them.

Are there any REAL, genetically homogenous Tainos left? Maybe. I don't know the answer. But I know for an absolute FACT they Tainos - FULL BLOODED TAINOS - if they exist at all in Puerto Rico, are so rare as to not be germane to this discussion.

lookie here little nutty professor...ONE when I said that the puerto ricans from the states aren't the same as the ones from the island, I ment their upbringing NOT whatever u where talking about. TWO I can back up my opinion of the racism in PR for the simple fact that 1...I am one so there for I think like one and 2 I liv in PR and for many years...and believe me when I say racism in wheather ur a "white" "black" or tan Puerto Rican has never been an issue here. im not saying its not existant...there are 1 or 2 ppl who think ignorantly...but at all or even close to the racism in the US. matter of fact I've been living here for over more than 7 years and have never seen something on the news or let alone in my own neiborhood about a fight...gang on gangs...killing or any type of violent conducts that has to do with racism. we simple just don't that much about it to stress over it...but I do stress about it when someone comes and tries to point fingers, talk bad or lable Puerto Ricans or our belief when ONE...im guessing ur not Puerto Rican TWO you've never lived in Puerto Rico and THREE im 100% u got this false information out of a book or website. you state ur opinion with what u have read and "learned" and I state my FACTS with what I have seen and felt and lived....not with what someone wrote in a book but from my everyday experience. because I am Puerto Rican and I live in Puerto Rico and I CAN say that ur opinion is just that...YOUR OPINION!! u can't talk about a curtain race or their beliefs if u aren't one of them or if u haven't experienced it first hand...and for the record...yes I AM TAINO!! becuase Puerto Ricans are made up of 3 cultures...the Spanish settlers that came over here. the African slaves that they brought with them and the Taino indians that where living here before. and its true maybe there isn't even 1 full-blooded Taino indian still living. but thanks to this unique mixture that is a Puerto Rican...they still live...through US.

Ya know what, esco? Have it. There are only 1 or 2 racists in ALL of PR, and they're probably dead. EVERYBODY knows that Puerto Ricans are a mix of Spaniard, African, and Taino. You are not schooling anyone. It is also well known that Black Puertorriqueños and mulattoes have historically been disadvantaged on that island. This is not an aspersion, it is the TRUTH. Don't feel rained on- the same phenomenon exists in Cuba - even communism couldn't eliminate it. How do you explain the protest music of the Puerto Rican 1960's? And yes, I have known, and know many Puerto Ricans born on the island. Some Afro Latino, some mulatto, some more Indian. And one, in particular, was quite fond of calling her one mulatto son the good old n-word. So, you are not going to pass off my own personal experience of Puerto Rican people as irrelevant. If I can find ONE Puerto Rican bigot here, there more than the "1 or 2" that you mention on the island. I'm afraid you are not going to get anywhere trying to paint PR as a utopia. Racism is there, just as it is here. Of course, you probably never experienced racism on the mainland either, right?
Thank you for confirming my point about the Taino. They are dead, victims of a vicious European genocide, and Puerto Ricans (SOME of them) are all that's left of them. A few unique squiggles of nitrogen lined up on strands of protein - cohabitating with squiggles from Africa and Europe. I am glad that PR holds the memory and some of the culture. I'm glad that they are rebuilding the language. The world loses something great when peoples are forgotten. But, in reality, the Taino are extinct. And, I am sorry for that.

Now, esco - if you disagree, try AGAIN. But, be honest with YOURSELF this time. No one here is going to drink the Kool-Aid about PR being free of racism. Own it. Otherwise, you're just another "Good German" that doesn't recognize the flaws in his own society and does nothing to help those for whom discrimination is still a very real problem.

Maybe the poster isn't somebody Puerto Rican men or non-Puerto Rican men wanted to talk to.What is she a special women because she's black?PR men have to adore her?Maybe those PR men didn't like her personality.

I've dated many black women and not all were 100% perfect but because you have meet one or two bad people in life doesn't mean all PR men are bad.If you set your mind on one race or culture you will be dissapointed at some point.

<quoted text>Don't try to sterotype hispanic men, that is being very hypocritical and disgusting. how would you like it if a white men told you " oh That black women only wants to date me because she wants a free meal to kfc". I'm half puerto rican and that comment was bull, plus 5 yr olds know that puerto rico is a part of america. Where the hell have you been at?
lol, I would be tight if they said that about black women. In some of those foreign places like PR and other parts of the carribean, some of the natives do be waiting for tourists with money to manipulate. Weither its for green cards or to get you robbed it definitly goes down so yes I'm very skeptical of men when I'm in far away places. When I went on a cruise to PR, even the captain advised that people take their jewelry off so that is not a good sign. Plus that is a really smart 5 year old to know that PR is apart of american or puerto rican themselves. At 5, I definitly didn't know that. I knew Virgin Island was but that is because thats were my family is from and I think I learned that older like 7 maybe.

I remember I made a thread saying how sexy they are but im kinda having regrets.
I did a test on myspace to see how they would respond. I requested like 8 Puerto Rican men for a friend request and all of them denied me.
I also requested like 2 afro latino men and they were the only two that accepted my request.
What y'all have to say??
Feedback???
What is the point of this thread? Why are there so many threads saying... this type of man does not like black women????

Men have preferences, just like woman. For some reason those men do not like you or black woman. I prefer slim over chunky but that doesn't mean I won't talk to a chunky girl if I thought she was cute.

aiight all yall should stfu...I'm black-rican my madre was full blooded latina(not white, not black) Pale skin latina...theres are african ricans, which most of them are multi-rical or like to be called latina. I don't know if you guys are talking about Hispanics in general or just puerto ricans, but I have alot of latino/latina friends, one of them don't really like black girls or white girls he stricly like latinas, but I have heard him say comments on him saying stuff about sexy black girls which all the ones who he thought was attractive was actually multi-ricail. To be honest alot of people I have talked to don't like black girls unless they really sexy or multi-rican, alot of people will say they dont date white girls expically hispanics and they'll do it. I had a friend who told me he dont date black girls when he was currently with a light skinned sexy black female, Hispanics like black girls but only if they look really good but they mostly prefer there own kind in men we speakaing latinas as the ones I was with are stictly on latino or black men. BTw, on the comment to freedaridal is right, I had alot of hispanics friends in New York who was with alot of black women.
