Thank you for proving my point as it is said to be that Cleopatra was not black. She was Egyptian and Greek mixed.
The word " Egypt" is a Greek word. Look up what it means before you say that Cleopatra was half Egyptian and Half Greek. You might as well said that she is mulatto, meaning half black and half white, but more black because once you mix with black, you're not considered white anymore. So she was a beautiful black princess who never identified with Greece but always considered herself Egyptian ( black)!

Am I a white woman? No. By the way, I am not Mexican. I'm just not a desperate black person looking for desperate ways to say that ALL latinos are black haha. First you claim all blacks are Egyptians, then you claim blacks were native to the Americas. Learn your own history and leave Mexicans history alone. They know their history.
Yeah! And their history is that they didn't build the pyramids in Mexico and they came from Spain! They know the truth! They just choose to lie! The elite in Mexico know the truth! The ignorant ones in Mexico, about 95%, don't know sh!t! They've been lied too. You've been lied too as well. You're so lost, you don't even know that your comment was stupid! You're just going off of what you know, which ain't sh!t! Learn the truth or mind your business!

It's not that American Blacks claim Mexicans are mixed with Blacks. It is that history claims it. The sad thing is that Mexican leaders from the 1920's through the 1940's tried to erase the fact that throughout the Spanish Empire, Mexico was once considered a Black country. In fact, more than half of all Africans brought to the New World passed through the port of Veracruz.

The two men most responsible for Mexican Independence from Spain were both Black - José Maria Morelos and Vicente Guerrero. Guerrero went on to become Mexico's second president. He abolished slavery in Mexico.

The reason most Mexicans don't LOOK black is because the Catholic church did not (and does not) oppose miscegenation, so the races freely mixed in Mexico - even during the period of slavery. In the U.S. however, the Protestant church was extraordinarily racist and so laws were past (that were not struck down until 1967) against interracial marriage. So, in the U.S. the races were by law and institution kept apart. With the exception of New Orleans, which was first Spanish, then French (both Catholic countries), there was no large scale race mixing before the end of the 20th century.

The comedian George Lopez used to have a segment on his late night show, where he did DNA tests on many of his guests. He started doing that after he found out that he is 11% Black. Yet, his abuela was famously racist against Blacks!

Just a couple of other items...
At one point during Spanish colonial times, half of the entire population of Spanish controlled Mexico was either pure African or Mulatto. Even with all the race mixing (White, Black, Indian), most Mexicans were decidedly dark-skinned. This bothered the small, mostly White ruling class, who decided to change that.

The Mexican government, through cash payments and tax incentives, encouraged immigration from European countries, primarily Spain, in an official effort to "whiten" the Mexican population. This effort continued from the late 19th century into the 20th century, until the the 1947 "Ley General de Población" (General Population Law) was passed.

One other thing. The current problems between Latinos and Blacks in San Diego is essentially a turf war with criminal roots. These people have no real sense of their own history. It's sad, but it certainly is not representative of the long standing history and relations between both peoples.

Most Mexicans I've met don't know much about their own history. Most Blacks I've met don't much about their own history. Therein lies the problem.

many angry black activists such as Sharpton often envisioned the idea of indoctrinating naive immigrants, whether illegal or not, in efforts to help supplement the American black male's meager population.

however, such activists are certain to face an uphill struggle as most of the common general public with average-to-above intelligence recognize that most of America's criminals per capita are black males.

This just goes to show your ignorance of putting ALL blacks in one group.
I'm MEXICAN and BLACK. 50/50
I can say for the most part, black people aren't even concerned about Mexicans "being on our side" most "problems" from the Mexican & black is mostly gang related or just pure ignorance. You can relate to the ignorance part, I'm sure.
Now. Seeing that I'm both, Mexican and black. I explore and love both cultures. Which are totally different. Not being "important" to the system" is the only thing we have in common. With experience I CAN say that some Mexicans are MORE concerned about blacks, than blacks are with them. But both races can be full of sh** at times.
With that said.... I hope you realize that your ignorant for putting a entire race in one group.

black males in America are categorized in a class by themselves and have no natural connection to even their own race of women, let alone other minorities such as Hispanics. at best, black women can be considered a transition strip between the 7 and the 93 blankets.

BW have a unique position of power to choose which direction they wanna go but black males unfortunately do not.....not til they can prove to the American people their crime capacity is only environmental, not genetic.

it's unfathomable how any Latino would wanna identify himself with the race/gender who's been proven to commit the most crime unless he's been visited by some divine spirit saying there's a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for any person who decides to label his/herself as black.

I honestly thought you were talking about whites because they have committed more atrocities than all other races combined.

I agree that there is somewhat a kinship between the blacks and the Mexicans but only when it comes down to the racism we both experienced.
Other than that, we are not black,....

Other than that, we are not black,our cultures are totally differend and also,i find that the so called respect the blacks have for the Mexicans is only temporary!
Black people don't respect no one but themself, especially after what they've been through and they like to use other races who aren't white to help them get powerfull gainst the whites.Then,they gon(like they always do)show us their true colours.Black people think that the Mexicans are a joke, physically were small, our accents are funny, were never taken seriously and this is a fact.
On top of all this everythin is cool between us all till theres a conflict and the blacks must always win, can't lose to no Mexican.
This comment This just informs me that Hispanics need to come out of the Catholic Church. If you actually read your bible with understanding you'll find that Mexicans and Blacks come fromt the same blood line...You'll also find a prophesy stating that Hispanics and Blacks will have a hate towards one another. But as a Black Female who once lived amongst and had Hispanic friends it's to my understanding that many hispanics have the "Slave" mentality and hate us because we remind you of how some "whites" really think of you. You don't want to be labled as us because that would mean you're considered second class by whitey as we are but somewhere in your mind you think they look upon you slightly better than they do blacks. You all just like the Uncle Tom Black Negro have been taught to hate your brother, hate your selves and worship your masters. Come out of your slumber and wake the HELL UP!

A small population yes. So instead of blacks being so desperate to latch on to someone else's heritage, they should say Mestizos with African blood should reason with blacks. And that's blacks asking because they're not slaves to blacks...no obligations. Blacks are a desperate bunch of leaches who can't fight their own battles so they try forcing other minorities to fight for them or with them. Maybe latinos just want peace. Just like mulattos want. Blacks need to find solice in their own heritage...West Africa.
Are you serious. We have been fighting battles befor there was a United States of America. As a matter of fact we faught in American battles for our freedom! Our ancestors (the ones of slave ancestory) faught so that all nations (world wide) can enjoy the "American Dream". Yet we or pi**ed and shi*ed upon by all nations. We are given the lowest education, lease opportunity, and most pressure.All this and we still overcome! One thing I can agree on is that we came from "West Africa" on the other hand you need to do some real research and find out where we were before "West Africa". You also need to do research and I mean deep research and find out the relation between Blacks and Hispanics. you'll find that they come from the same blood line.....

They're not black nor white. Mexicans identify with their heritage...mestizo. Some have African blood in them. Choosing sides is pointless because at the end of the day...they're grandparent is Spanish (European) who I'm sure they love dearly. Not their fault what their mix is. Latinos are a proud people. That's what everyone love about them. What will they gain by choosing sides? Nothing but a self hater title. They're latino point blank, not black.
"Latino" is a linguistic term and only means that a person speaks Latin. There are Moorish latin speaking peoples and white Latin people.
"Black" is not a nationality so who are you talking about?
"Mestizo" is a term educated Mexicans don't like to use because it refers to the nomadic population amongst the Africans in Mexico who chose to side and even mate with the Spanish conquistadors and were considered sellouts by their peers. They were looked down upon by the majority in Mexico until they became the majority. The pyramids in Mexico were built by people of African descent. Fact!
Modern Mexicans are a bastardized people mixed with many cultures but who want the Spanish culture to remain dominant even though the African influence is undeniable. We don't want you to side with us. We as Moorish Americans don't need that love. We just want you to realize that the Africans ruled Mexico before the Spanish arrived! Fact!
These fake @ss Mexicans need to learn some real history about their own country or STFU!

Blacks desperately want to claim every single group as black. It's really pathetic. They say Asians are black lol, Mexicans are black, Puerto Ricans are all black, Hindus is the black man's religion lol smh, Hondurans are the secret tribe of blacks smh. Get a grip people. Are you that insecure to just be proud to be black without dragging other groups into your heritage?
My co-worker wanted to call dominicans black the other day, I said they are dominicans, and they are mixed race. She said everyone wanted to deny they had african in them, I said thats not the case, it may be their case, but thats their heritage. She told me I was african, and anyone mixed with african is african, including Mariah Carey lol. She then told me, mixed people are everywhere, and all over africa!
