Hi everybody.

When I first came to this forum I had some great discussions for a while, but at some point I began to realize that there is a serious dislike and hatred toward African-Americans by Puerto Ricans. I never realized that there was any animosity between Puerto Ricans and African-Americans but the comments that I have gotten on this forum have shown me otherwise. I have been called the N word, an "ugly black boy", I have been told to go back to Africa, and one poster even told me he was better than me because he was a "White" Puerto Rican.

Where does this come from? Have any of you ever had negative experiences with African-Americans? Is there a part of your culture that is anti-black? Why do Puerto Ricans hate African-Americans?

Puerto Ricans do not hate African-Americans, so stop trying to be the victim.

People just don't like YOU and it has nothing to do with your race.

You are a hate-filled bigot and you have posted a plethora of denigrating racist personal rhetoric about Puerto Ricans. I can attest that you have insulted me numerous times, for you have respect for no one, especially anyone who contradicts your distorted philosophical views on race and especially about your patronization of Puerto Rico and Puerto Ricans.

You started the thread "Why do Puerto Ricans think they are Americans?" and then YOU began your tirades and bigoted rantings against them.

Puerto Ricans do not hate African Americans. Frankly, it would be hypocritical of any Puerto Rican to hate anyone Black. The reason why you're getting the reactions that you're getting is because of the way you're addressing your audience - it's simple. I mean, think about it. If a Puerto Rican started up a post about Blacks that more or less served to discredit the black people - as a whole, wouldn't you be reactive? At the end of the day, you and anyone else is entitled to their own opinion. It is what it is. Either way, most Puerto Ricans aren't phased by outside negative views of our culture.

I didn't know that Puerto Ricans hated Blacks. I'm Black. I just thought that Puerto Ricans were just like us. I grew up around them and I love to hear the language. I never had any issues with any Hispanic because of my race when growing up. Now, maybe they could call me a N behind closed doors, I don't know. But, where I grew up, we stuck together. I ran into a lot of racism when I was traveling, like in Chicago, Los Angeles, Cleveland, and St Louis. Blacks hated Blacks. Blacks hated Hispanics. Hispanics hated Blacks. Whites hated everyone.....and so forth. It just depends on where you grew up. Bottom line.....we all came from one man and one woman. We are all the same.

Don't mind this guy.

He's always trying that we, state and island Puerto Ricans, defend ourselves by insulting our Black Americans sisters and brothers (as if we, Puerto Ricans, do not have African DNA).

That guy's way off (so don't pay any attention to that troll).

This is a ridiculous thread.. Puerto Ricans have the best relationship with African-Americans of all hispanic groups.... We were a huge part of the creation of "hip hop culture"

This thread was started by an African American complaining about the ways he has been treated.

I wouldn't call a personal experience "ridiculous".
