About 40% of all Puerto Ricans are exclusively of European descent, which would make them white. Seems the rabble rousers in the black communities want to sucker hispanics into drinking their kool aid and robbing them of their individualism. They want to make latinos feel as if though they too are an opressed race.

If you are Anglo American, why not concern yourself with your suspicious percentages? You claim that only 30 million so called whites have black ancestry and yet don't apply the one drop rule to them. Those thirty million one drop-Ango Americans are spreading their Sub Saharan black DNA heritage your Anglo Amnerican community.

In short, the rest of your so-called lily white society is interbreeding with them. Then you have the hord of blacks who have and are successfuly passing undetected into your Anglo American community anbd the reason why American Anglos have a higher sub African Back DNA genetic Markers than all Eastern and Southern European nations becomes obvious.

If you are an American Negro the same applies. You are all mixed with whites and Native Americans and yet demand to be considered black. That is OK by me. After all, that really isn't any of my concern. Each ethnic group will have its customs and values and those are yours. However, your constant demands that your values be respected while disrespecting the Latino community's values can only cause a rift between the two communities. If you want respect-then give it. If not, then your claims to blackness are drivel from where I stand and should be considered drivel by any Latino who is aware of your fanatical effort to force your values down their throats.

let me just add that being light skined, hair, and eyes, has been a difficulty. My father grew up in Hato Rey, San Juan and in Mayaguez. No one ever believes me untill I speak spanish. Then they look at me like I have six arms. La Gente Boricua is changing fast but was at one time mostly white castillanos from Spain. The puerto rican people now see (white) people as un dueno- como los reconquistadores. Most claim not to be white because the don't want to be seen as an oppressor. VERDAD ES UN FRACASO NO PUEDO BUSCO MAS QUE LLAME MI GENTE.DIOS LE BENDIGA

In 1765, an official sent by the spanish crown to take a census of the puerto rican people reported back to the King: "the races are mixing like crazy! I am descendant from that mixture, thank you!

If you are an Anglo:

Pray tell, what have Americans been doing all that time? Why are their 32 million Anglo Americans mixed with blacks and remixing with mixed and unmixed unmixed Anglo Americans on a constant basis? Where are all the blacks who passed into Anglo society detected and undetected? Why do the USA Anglo American so-called whites have a higher sub Saharan black DNA percentage that any European nation? Could it be because they have been mixing like maniacs all this time? What do you think? Or do you purposefully place you brain on hold when it comes to you?

If you are an Afro:

Who the hell are you to be talking about mixes? You aren't racially pure no matter how much you swagger about being black and struggle to identify yourselves with African blacks who are ashamed of the comparison due to your uncouth ways. If indeed Latinos don't mess in your shit why do you persist in messing in ours? Stay in your goddamned places and but out of our cultural business! Otherwise you come across as demanding respect but unwilling to give it. It doesn't work that way amigo. Try to get that through your unusually thick skulls!

Admixture in the United States

See also: Genetic history of indigenous peoples of the Americas

Admixture in European-American population

% European admixtureFrequency90–10068%80– 89.922%70–79.98%60–69.9< 1%50–59.9< 1%40–49.9< 1%0–39.90Some claim the vast majority of African-Americans possess varying degrees of European admixture (the average Black American is 20% European) although studies suggest the Native American admixture in Black Americans is highly exaggerated; some estimates put average African-American possession of European admixture at 25% with figures as high as 50% in the Northeast and less than 10% in the south. A recent study by Mark D. Shriver of a European-American sample found that the average admixture in the white population is 0.7% African and 3.2% Native American. However, 70% of the sample had no African admixture. The other 30% had African admixture ranging from 2% to 20% with an average of 2.3%. By extrapolating these figures to the whole population some scholars suggest that up to 74 million European-Americans may have African admixture in the same range (2-20%).

I was wrong. Your little lustful screwing around party with Africans has gotten you as high as as 74 million, mixed with black Anglos! LOL!

If an official was sent to Puerto Rico by the Spanish crown to take a census of the Puerto Rican people and report back to the Spanish King, that would make that official a NATIVE EUROPEAN SPANIARD. How can he, a native Spaniard European, be "descendant from any mixture" other then European when his as a European his descend would have only been European Spaniard? Seriously some you make such oxymoron comments that they are beyond ridiculous.

He's right! Fuirhertmore, eben on the colonies only Spaniards born in Spain were allowed to occupy high government positions. That's one policy which provoked the revolution and eventual overthow of Spaniard rule.

Brainiac2, what happened in the South & Central American European (Spanish, Portuguese & French colonies was no different than what happened in the English & Canadian colonies to the north.

When the "native-born" whites decided they didn't want to be governed by their European brothers, they declared independence and fought for it. In the case of Puerto Rico, Spain held it til almost 1900 (1898), so logically the influence of Spanish culture is srongest there than in ANY other former Spanish colony.

Unfortunately there are cyber-idiots in these sites that continue to portray PR as another Aztec nation, which any student of western hemispheric history knows is nothing more the current revisionist politically-correct nonsense, But nonsense gets a lot of traction in the minds of the uninformed, unsophisticated and ignorant....welcome to the USA, where stupidity always trumps intelligence.

The question of this "African-American" thread...

"Are Puerto Ricans White?" only displays the typical lack of intelligence, information and inspiration that continues to dominate ALL "African-American" dialogues in the USA.

To ask this question is as ignorant as to ask...

"Are Americans White?"
"Are Canadians White?"

I won't even include "Are Mexicans White" because the racist brainwash in the USA about ALL of Spanish-speaking America is that if you speak Spanish (or Portuguese) you are immediately non-white.

And we wonder why the rest of the planet laughs at our endless ignorance and arrogance.

What a waste of an "educational" system that continues to produce idiots with big mouths, big egos and microscopic understanding of the rest of the planet.

Puerto Ricans consist of Indian puerto Ricans(Taino), Hispanic puerto Ricans, and African Puerto Ricans. Thats their history. If there are whites in Puerto Rican, they probably immigrated, but they aren't a part of the history o PR

All of them are practically clones of one another. Look at Roberto Clemente and Ricky Martin and Trinidad compared Jose Ferer. Why they, they could all be be twins! Right? LOLWROF
