I been posting on topix lately, and had found, that many puertoricans speak embraces and some even glorifies, the spanish ancestry, tolerate the indian heritage, and vehemently deny the african ancestry, like is something wrong or shameful. What is your point of view??

Some like El cacique are actually Irish mixed with Scottish but with Hispanic names , so El cacique claims.

El cacique told us in the JW forum that his lineage comes from the William Wallace lowlander Klan with some Irish Celtic blood mixed in.

Topix is Topix.

Dont go by it.

The only Puerto Rican proud of his Indian heritage is Bhattia and the guy is of Pakistani origins.

So, he doesnt tolerate it, but embraces it.

On the other hand, most Puerto Ricans I know are extremely proud of their indigenous heritage...

This topic is incorrect. Actually people from Puerto Rico are the few Spanish speaking Islands that actually embraces there African heritage rather than deny. I mean there is always going to be racism amongst a few but that is everywhere.

Well according to I have noticed here in topix there is a strong trend to deny the african ancestry, by that I meann that they admit the african influence is part of our history, but vehemently deny to have african blood, some even claim to be Irish.

No estoy de acuerdo.

Los puertorriquenos no negamos ninguna de nuestras raices.

Claro que me cogiste carino....si yo soy una chuleria....LOL...en pote....

Pero, seriously, si nosotros tenemos mas de un DNA racial running thru our systems and some people decide to embrace one DNA over the other, what's it to you?

That has always been my question to you since day one.

Si en Jayuya deciden ensalzar nuestras raices tainas, en Loiza, nuetras raices negras, en Barranquitas las criollas y europeas...no veo cual es el problema.

exacto si se quiere resaltar una raiz no es problema pero lo que me MOLESTA es cuando la gente niega la existencia de nuestro mestizaje como si fuesemos una raza pura y eso no es cierto.
