Common sense and logic and able to decipher things plays a big part in life , along with academics
i'm both black & latino, so i know the history & culture well.
latino is actually just a culture not a race.the definition of latino is, a native or inhabitant of latin america.
all these names like dominican,haitian,colombian,brazilian,mexican are nationalities, not races.
but alot of american people think they are races.
a mexican or puerto rican can be the a dark black person,a white person,a indian person & everything in between.there is also some asians in latin america that are considered latino.
haitians would also be considered latinos because french is a latin language like spanish & portugese.but their race is black/african, there is also a few white haitians.
check out the video my homie did about puerto ricos blacks roots.i posted it in this forum
