Jeff, I am from Puerto Rico and my family is of European descent (Basque/Galician, Canary Islander, Corsican & Irish). I have grown up ON THE ISLAND. My family has been on the Island since the 1800s when they all IMMIGRATED to Puerto Rico when it was STILL a Spanish colony.
I have attended undergraduate and graduate school in the U.S. and in Europe and in the former location, I encountered nothing but the most INCREDIBLE stupidity about Puerto Rico. Probably the MOST offensive were the knuckle-dragging, pants-hanging-below-their- asses ghetto-Ricans who identified primarily with American ghetto blacks.
These losers are the sad off-spring of mostly 50s and 60s immigration to NYC ghettoes and for sociologically obvious reasons they DO NOT have an authentic Puerto Rican identity.
BUT, they do have a sold-out imitation wannabe-black-ghetto identity. I understand how this happened to them because they had to survive in the ghettoes of NYC and part of that survival required that they "become negro-wannabes". And believe it or not, some of these afro-centric losers actually have the nerve to tell those of us they meet FROM THE ISLAND, our history, our ancestry and our identity.
We used to feel sorry for these morons. They have been brainwashed and hi-jacked by schools and communities with ignorant afro-centric agendas worshipping pyramids and african kings and queens wearing 100% "authentic" polyester loin cloths. Very few have survived this personal, psychological and even physical onslaught of ghetto blacks who don't even know who their fathers are but tell these idiots about their "black roots".
However today very few of us in Puerto Rico feel sorry for them.
Today we feel nothing but contempt for these ghetto-banger whores who couldn't find the island on a map unless it was spray painted on a subway platform.
Slavery was NEVER a dominant social dynamic in Puerto Rico. If it had been, Puerto Rico would be another Hait or Jamaica.
WE ALL KNOW THIS, but these weak minds in the "rican" American ghettoes are weak, un-informed and have NO grasp of our REAL history. All they have learned is about ghetto poetry, prison culture, ghetto grafitti, street violence and family dysfunction.
We have a saying on the island..."cuando la persona pierde su verguenza, NADIE se la devuelve".
TRANSLATION: "When a persona loses their sense of "integrity/honesty/decenc y" ,NO ONE can return it to them."
Not all Puerto Rican-descended people in the States have "lost their verguenza" but MOST have and MOST Of these "sin verguenzas" are black, mulatto and mixed race Puerto Ricans who CANNOT be white, don't want to be just another American black, but are trapped in ghetto black identity.
I have met many Puerto Ricans who KNOW who they are because they come from families who shared it with them, but MOST in the STATES were not that lucky and learned about "rican" culture from graffiti sprayed in ghetto alleys and on the side of abandoned subway cars in the South Bronx.
They are truly lost and the internet provides them with a venue to spew their stupidity so that others like "skiza" can add his/her 2 cents to the pile of "rican" trash on the internet.

@balmoral-medina you shouldent be talking bad about black people because its your kind of people that are the monsters. your people enslaved the black people and shipped them off to other plces in latin america. you whites also raped the women and treate them with great brutality. the government later put them in low income areas to keep them down while the whites can get rich. so your kind of people are the bad ones. you whites also slautered alot of indians and raped there women. so before you go talking about how bad black people are look at your own people bitch.

I'm not a Latino, dummy, and there are NO racist anti-Latino laws. There are a FEW fruitcakes who don't want ANY immigration, be it from Latin America or Asia or Europe or Africa, PERIOD.

its not really 76 percent white. most are mixed. most puertoricans indentiy as white because there in denial of their african and their indian ancestory. we were taught by our white spanish settlers to deny our ancestory. i think the white population in puertorico is 30 percent. from my families experience on the island

hey "star" if you are so proud of being black then YOU go back to Africa, pendejo sin principio!

And tell the Kardashians your ignorance about their big asses. They are ARMENIAN, which is a CONTINENT away from Africa, but of course you knew that didn't you. Typical internet rican loser.

Why don't you go pet your pit bull or ride a subway to nowhere.

Puerto Rico had da opposite of the 1-drop rule.. 1-drop of white made u "white".. so even doe most ricans are mulattos and tri-racials most tend to follow this rule til dis day and consider themselves "white".. this law was made in da 1800's when PR had very few whites.. thats also why Spain allowed many whites from many white countries to immigrate to PR.. both those things were done to make PR "whiter".. u could look that shitt up if u think im lyin

i agree 100%
I have lived in both PR and NY. I identify with white, black and latino cultures and agree with a lot of Hector's post as well. The only issue I have is the census part. The census sucks and is Black or White. It does not have and desperately needs a mixed race option that represents most Puerto Ricans.
The attack from puerto ricans on nuyoricans and vice versa is senseless. The pr culture is mixed race - has always been and will most likely always be. The discrimination here against blacks in pr along with the need to feel 100% white is depressing and embarassing. Puerto Ricans that associate their whiteness with Spanish ancestry tend to forget that African Moors inhabited Spain for 800+ years. The Puerto Rican is a beautiful mix of cultures and races. Accept it for what it is.

I will agree with that. That's what happens in a lot of Hispanic countries. The number of whites is highly exaggerated. Most of these whites are not pure whites because most of the whites have varying amount of Native and African admixture in them. For example, some one who is, say, 85% white and 15% African in Puerto Rico, will regard himself white and be be counted as one because his phenotype will likely be closer to white than African. But in some cases, even those with much higher African admixture (say 40% will in many cases are counted as white). In the case of Puerto Rico, its mostly African admixture rather than Native that dominates, but in Mexico and most other Hispanic countries it is Native admixture over African dominates.
The pure whites (i.e. those with none or very negligible admixture) make up very small percentage of the population in many of these countries. Even in countries like Argentina and Chile where there is much less admixture, the number of pure whites is exaggerated because those with small Native admixture often regard themselves as white and so does official stats in those countries.
Argentina & Chile what? ;-) Just b/c ya dun see their blood doesn't mean they are less mixed. ;-P Both Argentina & Chile are almost as mixed as Mexico or Honduras. Where Chile has much bigger Amerindian population than Argentina. ;-)
