Basically, most puerto ricans and mexicans don't get along yet thats not always the case either. First off even though they both latino groups they are two different ethnic groups they have their own beliefs their own slang mixed in with broken spanish. Puerto ricans and mexicans don't get along number 1 because of a whole territorial thing (my country, your country) 2nd because they speak 2 different kinds of broken spanish and 3rd they are two different countrys may i point out once again and they compete in sports lik boxing and soccer last but not least people in the united states mix almost all the ethnic groups up with mexicans or guatamalian, puerto ricans or other latinos just dnt want to be called mexican out of the blue especially when they are not mexican.

I've been mistaken for a Puerto Rican a few times.. Heck I've been mistaken for a Dominican too but I'm neither. I'm Mexican and damn proud.

At first I didn't really mind but as it became a routine for people to tell me "Oh I really thought you were Boricua" or "You look Dominican" I kinda got annoyed by it. I don't speak that crappy Spanish they speak. I don't eat rice with every meal.

Grr!! I guess I should just print a Mexican flag on my forehead.

There is a lot of ignorant people who think that if you speak Spanish they assume that the person is Mexican.They do not know how to distinguish the difference between Latinos.

The whole thing is sad; Mexicans want to work, and do, while potta reekins, by culture, are just waste. Look at hector "macho" camacho; just another cocaine dealing potta reekin punk. It's just the way of life for them. Look at the NYS prison population; mostly potta reekin and they ALL belong to the latin kings, a wanna-be-bad gang of wanna-be-bad gangsta's. Even the wimmin are trashy. Sad but that's the way they are. It's their lifestyle & culture. They provide NO contribution to society; they just leech off the system and for some reason think they are better than anybody else, including Mexicans. Mexicans have well deserved pride. NOT potta reekins.

Ignorance, will be the end of us all.
I'm Puerto Rican and I get along with everyone. I'm proud to be Boricua, but all people are the same. People are people.
