Black people love to complain that everyone is racist against them. You would never know that they could harbor racist feelings by the way that they talk. I remember working in a mostly black office environment. The racist stereo types that they would freely express about Puerto Ricans was something that I have never heard even from whites. I would hear how we Puerto Rican men like to molest our daughters,beat our wives etc. Black People always refer back to the J Lo P-diddy relationship to demonstrate how racist Puerto Ricans really are. Its funny that they never mention when P Diddy's mom called her a rice and bean eating drop out or when Kim Porter called her that little Puerto Rican girl. Puerto Ricans have always supported black athletes and celeberties. Yet when a Puerto Rican gets famous they start to hate. I do not consider myself racist. But I feel those Puerto Rican women that freely get knocked up by a Tyrone or Leroy has only herself to thank when she is going to court for child support,is in a homeless shelter and or on food stamps and welfare.
I agree with you 100%. It is also a class issue. The two become entertwined at times.

AA's people can be quite prejudice. They are the ones walking around with complexes. The consistent tenor of negative comments towards Puerto Ricans or Hispanics in general is indicative of that.

Sour grapes!

While blacks and ricans look different, Puerto Rico also has always had a strong hip-hop culture and have been the trend setters of the Latin countries.
PR basically founded Salsa and then DR founded Merengue. PR founded spanish rap and ragga, and now has founded Reggaeton.
I think the youth of each ethnicity are close cuz of that
<---- actually africans gets credit for merengue bcuz merengue is a rip off of an old old OLD african song/beat called makru...alot of hispanic music/beats and many other music from different ethnic groups are samples of african beats that has been around for many centuries only difference is that africans dont write down there music, but pass it down orally/visually to generation. so basically they play a beat & u repeat, learn it, remember it.

any ethnic group can be prejudice.no ethnic group is more prejudice than the other peroid. i totally disagree with AA'S always having negative comments against PR'S or hispanics i go to a hispanic school and ther are alot of AA'S that go there to and we get along fine. and anyway hispanics has negative comments toward other cultural groups so u just cant say its AA'S cuz its cultural group period.

I have often argued with you on many issues but where there is common ground i will acknowledge it. I dont think its a matter of who is more racist because i have seen racism in both directions and i dont like it either way. I live in brooklyn so for the most part i do see both aa and pr together more than any other group. I guess because for the most part we grew up together. While there are diffrences there are also similarites that both groups have. I question the people on both sides what are they accomplishing by showing these sour grapes when we have people that hate both of us.

Hey that's only true about some of my people. I personally love Latino culture. I only date and marry Latinas and leave the average "aight" looking sistas to the broke a** brothas that have to settle for them and have no options like myself. That's why broke brothas settle for ugly fat White girls.

no blacks heavily influenced hip hop not puerto ricans puerto ricans follow in the foot step its not to diss any puerto ricans but lets get the facts straight people often like to steal black ideas or ways and call it their own or say they contributed to the reason why blacks and puerto ricans and brazilians get along because we have african ancesrty slaves were brouth to the americas and the caribean even salsa was influenced by blacks salsa is purto rican thing but it started in NY puerto ricans having african descent r sometimes mistaked for being black so they r treated like blacks forced to live in black neighbor hoods and were around jazz and influenced the salsa movement along with other influences that r not black but u see some prl praising white ppl because they do not want to be treated as if they were black this country is white and black we were the first to ethnic groups here besdies the native americans

Why wouldn't they. All original ppl are dark skinned. They seem to except the truth. Cause they are more in tune with natural origins. Europeans created the world wide deception. In order to appear the dominant human race. Yet all they know came from the original ppl. Although math was the hardest to crasp until shortly before colonization.

Who the heck made this? Who even said I think that puerto ricans are sexy? These fricken options suck I mean serious "because we just do" and "because we're both sexy" that's the only 2 options your going to give us?? I hope a hispanic person made this because this poll is mad dumb. As for the reason hispanics & blacks get along it's because they've grown up very similar often rocking the same hoods often both being discriminated on more so then the other minorities( such as asian and native american etc.) Hispanics & blacks have more in common both pretty spiritual but I have to say the hispanics are definitely more of Jesus freaks than us blacks they even name their kids Jesus blacks get stereotyped as being religious but in all honesty hispanics have outchristianed us along time ago...

I don't know if your stuck up but it sounds like you have issues and drama and just a whole lot of mess with you no offense. Honestly I think it's the fact that you live in Orange, NJ try bringing your behind in areas we're blacks are sophisticated like Englewood cliffs or West wood and maybe you wouldn't keep running into a bunch of hood rats which btw come in any shade theres some black hood rats white hood rats hispanic hood rats asian hood rats the hood distorts your mentality and apparently the ghetto ways of it have rubbed off on you.Travel just a wee bit and you might just find out that you shouldn't judge a whole race based on where you grew up. As for the spanish thing this is America the primary language is ENGLISH if you don't like that relocate to puerto rico and quit your b!tching.

My experience with Puerto Ricans has been totally positive. I have much love and respect for them. When I meet them I always address them as if they are black. they are cool as hell. It is a different story with Dominicans. While Dominicans have African blood, they deny it. They often bleach their skin. I have a problem with that.
