I agree with you 100%. It is also a class issue. The two become entertwined at times.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.
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.
