There are dozens Puerto Rican gangs in the islands, who cares about stateside Latin gangs?

And who calls themselves "Latinos" in the first place?

That's a minority term coined by US' Anglos for federal classifying matters.

In Puerto Rico (as well as in every Latin American place, from Mexico all the way to Argentina) we're all Latin Americans (not Latins and definitely NOT Hispanics, either).

Are US stateside and Puerto Rico born, Americans or NOT?

Is about time every "Latino and Hispanic" claims their Americanness.

I agree, with the "Latino and Hispanic" labeling it's wrong we are Americans but we will always be called Hispanic or Latino.Obviously some people care since there's a forum about Latin Kings. I was a bit shock to see that but hey this is Topix after all.

We, all of us, can change it...and stop buying into it!

If women were able to change their self image, and gays are NOW doing it; its high time we, Latin Americans in the US start reclaiming our space everywhere IN OUR OWN NATION!

I know this Is off topic but since you have more knowledge than me about the whole Hispanic and Latino labeling, do you mind posting a thread about the discrimination of filling out forms about being a " White Hispanic" or "Black Hispanic" what about those that are neither or? If you can't if anyone has more information about this please post a thread.

How many "white" or "black" Americans are multi racial?

Multi racism was legalized so recently in the US that most Americans, of all races, have a lot of problems swallowing the concept (starting with Americans, here in Puerto Rico...all of us-not just our Anglo minority).

I check out "other"...and write multi racial next to it.

Washington is what we, as Americans, want "it" to be, not the other way around.

It is the American way to change life in this US of ours.

Washington exists, only, as a reflection of what we, the people, want it to reflect.
