AAs = mixed

1/3 USA Anglos = mixed with black

others mixed with NAs Italians, Spaniards Jews, Asians.

I guess that makes most USA Americans a muttish people-no?

It's not 'bout European ancestry alone, it's 'bout acknowledgin' & acceptin' the fact that there are still many European & 'white' descendants in PR who haven't mixed w/ other PRs. ;-)

I'm Puerto Rican and I have wavy brown-reddish hair(looks black at a distance) and brown eyes and look like a mix between white/native indian(I guess-mestizo) but I won't deny i don't have any African genes mixed in somewhere. My current family also looks like a white/native indian mix and do not show any physical African traits and in fact one of my grandmas is white as can be and her mother had blonde hair blue eyes.

Just by looking @ Puerto Ricans in the U.S and on the mainland Puerto Rico - most are white/native indian looking than African with of course the occasional one looking more African( 1/10 look more African)but this doesn't mean the ones looking more white/native indian have no African Genes. But my point is there is a greater white influence(mostly from Spain) on Puerto Ricans than African.

I am really interested in this - I'ma study my family tree a lot more and see what exactly made my family.

Hi, I'm Spanish and I can answer this for you.
Puerto Ricans are partly White and part Native American.
There is some Black blood, but the majority are White and Native American.
The men usually look like tanned White people. Benicio Del Toro and Ricky Martin are both Puerto Rican.
Puerto Ricans consider themselves Mestizo, which is a mix between White and Native American.
I'm confused.. So is that a yes lol?
