First of all, this type of question is the reason why labels are dangerous. Ppl should not be divided like this. Secondly let me present you with some FACTS, not opinions.

While people from many countries migrate to the Americas, most common people of Puerto Rico are on a mixed continuum between black, european and native american.

Likewise, a good number of mexicans are on the continuum between european and native american while a slightly smaller number also have black thrown in there. There are also mexicans who are fully native, fully white and fully black and I am sure the same can be said of puerto rico. I have been to Mexico, I have seen people with curly hair and hazel eyes, and I have seen very dark skinned people as well. My husband is an apparent european/native american from veracruz and has in law cousins who look black and mixed with black like me (I am black and white).

So my point is that these facts render your question to be silly.

Even if you were going to compare Chinese people to Mexicans or Puerto Ricans, your question is still silly for a number of reasons

1) You cannot generalize beauty. Beauty can be found in any "race" as can homeliness. Who looks better between jane and sue, maria and shamieka, that all depends on what each individual looks like, and it depends on the person you are asking and his or her definition of beauty. There are ppl who would think I am ugly for whatever reason but my husband thinks I am the most beautiful woman he has ever seen.

2) Puerto Ricans and Mexicans, in many cases, share a similar if not identical racial DNA.

3) Everyone is African, like it or not. We all originated in Africa and race is just a socially constructed myth. We are all one race and can look many different ways. But we all came from Africa, even Asians confirmed themselves on a youtube video that they are direct descendants of homo erectus in Africa.

So in conclusion...you should go and get a make over, fix your hair, put on some make up, eat healthy and exercise. Your looks depend on you, not your "race."

I doubt that any rational person on this thread was actually here to SERIOUSLY argue the validity, one way or the other, of this thread's question.

You do, of course, seem very much to be a decent enough person.

That having been said, however, I must comment that although at first you did say that you wanted to "present [us] with facts,[and] not opinions",

what immediately preceded from you was actually overwhelmingly laced with what can only be described as stale non factual and untenable "OPINIONS" born of shear Afro-Foolish contrivance.

As an example, I can quote you as stating that "[only] a (((slightly smaller)))->[???] number [of Mexicans] also have black thrown in there".

¿¿¿"SLIGHTLY SMALLER"???

¿¿¿(((SLIGHTLY)))???

ARE YOU SERIOUS!!???

•••

There is NOTHING "slightly", in comparison to Puerto Rico, about the damned near ZERO admixture of Congoid-American DNA in Mexico.

Some Afro-Fool posts on YouTube that there's a lot of Congoid blood in Mexico and all of a sudden some very silly Congoid-Americans end up 'thinking' that it has been proven to be so.

All legitimte DNA studies have shown that there is less than a 3rd of 1% Congoid DNA admixture in Mexico.

This is coming from a biracial American female (black and white). I think Mexican men or mestizos in general are the hottest men on the planet. But I live on the west coast so I am bound to see more variety than you. My hubby is Mexican. I also have to disagree that PR women look better than Mexican women because you just have not seen enough of the ones who are well to do with or without white or black features, Mexican women in all shades can be beautiful...and to me MORE beautiful because a chic like me gets sick of seeing America's washed out idea of beauty all the time. Some blonde hair blue eye anorexic white chic and a mixed chic who only has pretty hair and no face. Besides, I like straight hair to whom it is due. Just not on myself.

No sorry buddy but you are wrong. I think you overlooked the fact that I have been to Mexico. I saw black with my eyes. Not only black but also mixed with black. There were too many people who fit the description. With all the whitewashing and misinformation written on history, I can understand why this seems to be a debatable issue for you. However, it is a
fact. Many Mexicans are black. Not only by means of African slavery, but also by the
Spanish themselves who have intermarried with Africans in Spain. In fact I have read
that the black in Mexicans is far more likely
to have come from Spain than from slaves brought to Mexico. But both are true nonetheless. You cannot pick those ppl apart because black ppl have intermarried so much in Mexico. Why do you think many of the blacks have the face of a more typical Mexican but the hair and skin of black people?

It is also true that every Mexican family has at least one person with the African phenotype. I live in a community that is predominantly Mexican and just about every single household has at the very least one family member or close friend who is Mexicand looks like he or she is mixed with black.

YEAH!?

I'VE BEEN TO MEXICO TOO.

You 'say' that you've been to Mexico, and if you 'WERE' it was probably the 'Black' quarter in Veracruz or some such similar ethnic exception but YOU obviously read only Afro-Búllshít books, and the Official MEXICAN anthropological reports make you out to be nothing but A VERY IMAGINATIVE BUT ASININE LIAR.

Yeah, sure, I've seen Congoids in Mexico but who cares!?

They are mostly in Southern Mexico and they are most all mixed with the Mayans.

So, VERY few are Mulatos.

Please, show us the actual anthropological reports that prove this imagined taking of 'Congoid brides' in Spain.

There is only an 'autosomal' trace of 2% Female Western sub-Saharan African DNA in Spain and far FAR less of any 'autosomal' trace of Male Western SSA DNA in that same Spanish genetic profile.

CONTINUATION:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afro-Mexican

"Mexico Estimated at 450,000'(those with mostly or visibly significant black ancestry)[1]"

That amounts to, roughly, about 1/3 of 1 percent of the population of Mexico, and no more, being of Congoid ancestry.

How in the HÉLL can that EVER be reconciled with any of your EXAGGERATIVELY WILDE AND ABSURD ASSERTIONS ABOUT THE AMOUNT OF CONGOIDS IN MEXICO.

Heh...very funny, now,

cut the BÚLLSHÍT,ÁSS HÓLE.

I rightfully corrected the wild an absurd assertions of someone who is obviously nothing more than a very exaggerative and quite likely habitual LIAR, nothing more.

The subject of MEXICO or anything surrounding it is NOT the place for any Afro-Fúçkheads to be meddling, unless they can provide legitimate, sane, and cogent substantiation.

It's a 'FREE WORLD' but it's not the kind of ~FREE~ that fools like that 'think' they can have.

dude stfu ur such a racist asshole and you know it, you think being white makes u better than anyone else, mexico and rest the of America is a colored mans land, then the fucking white man took shit over like the savages they are ,did everything they could to kill the natives, such as bring diseased covered blankets, then on top of that the white man stole black men to do labor for them because the white man are such a lazy piece of shit. Whites are no better then anyone else, even the poorest darkest african in africa is better than any Whiteman,get my point, so fuck you mexinazi.

BTW, little Miss IMMATURE KNOW NOTHING,
your absurd accusation that I had resorted to "insult" merely bespeaks of YOUR ignorant immature frame of mind.
Why else would you have taken offense at my merely having pointed out that there are many Negros and/or Mulatos in the Caribbean.
My 'TIT-FOR-TAT' was never really meant as an insult.
That would have been tasteless and highly immature,
which is exactly the manner in which your silly little reaction ended up implicating YOU.
••••••••••
Mexico has next to (((ZERO))) African blood, unless you want to count Maghribíyan Berber, Jewish Sephardic, and Moroccan Arab.
There are MANY times more pure blooded Spanish in Mexico than in ALL the Caribeo, and the Mestizos that are mostly of Spanish blood also outnumber all the Mestizos in the Caribeo regardless of blend ratio.
It's even kinda difficult to find a Puerco Reekin' that isn't Mulato.
stop with the fucking jealousy against us puerto ricans we cant help it that we were born hot while you look simalar to spongebob lol so go back to the fields and keep on picking up corn and the tomatoes or else you wont get your green card you mexicant lol

How strange. I live in Spain and encounter numerous “moros”, as the Spanish call them, and they are immigrants from Morocco. But Afronazis in here are telling us that Spain is loaded with “black” DNA and the Moors were all black! I did not see Spanish people at all who looked the slightest bit mixed with Africans (blacks). Why is this? I was not everywhere in Spain, but the larger regions of León, Castilla la Nueva, Aragón and Cataluña. So am I to believe that everyone in Sevilla and Málaga is black? I don't think so...

I've been in most of Mexico's states. And not at the Club Med. On the trains, buses, in towns, at the markets, on the road... usually where there were no tourists. I never saw black people. Not in Tampico, not in Veracruz, not in Guadalajara, not in Hermosillo, not in Aguascalientes, not in Tuxtla, not in Mérida. In Tijuana I saw some, but they were AA tourists.

I am aware that there were Africans especially in Veracruz, and African-American runaway slaves from Texas who ended up in the area of Monterrey, Nvo. León, and I've seen Mexicans in the USA who looked like they were part black.

But I think what is coming here now is yet another attempt to claim Mexico and Mesoamerica generally...

Yet, archaeological evidence confirms that the Olmecs were from Soconusco... another area I've been in, and saw no black people.
