a video my homie did about Puerto Rico's black roots

These concepts are socially constructed and have been given much weight. What are your thoughts?

That Rosie Perez movie didn't down play the African influence in PR. She was pretty open about all the different racial elements in the PR population. She even mentioned smaller influencs like Irish.

Good post man!

Truth be told! There are Puerto Ricans more connected to the ancestors than their counterparts here in the US. Just check out the Reynaldo Hernandez painting "Black Imperial Egypt, The Old Kingdom"

HOW DO " WHITE AND NATIVE INDIO " LATINOS ... TREAT THE ...........BLACK PUERTO RICANS ON THE ISLAND , LIKE THE AREA OF LOIZA "

THERE IS NOT THAT MANY BLACK LATINOS IN PUERTO RICO COMPARED TO THE WHOLE POPULATION ....OF OTHER RACES AND MIXES..

ACCORDING TO TEGO AND SOME OTHERS , I HEARD THE RACISIM IS THERE BUT NOT THAT BAD !!

I HEARD ROBERTO CLEMENTE USE TO GO THROUGH RACISIM ON HIS ISLAND OF P.R. WHEN HE WAS YOUNGER AS A CHILD , BECAUSE HE WAS A BLACK LATINO OF AFRICAN DESCENT ...

WHAT ABOUT THE AFRICAN CONTRIBUTIONS IN LATIN COUNTRIES ARE THEY NOTED AND GIVEN LIGHT TO THE PUBLIC ....

THERE IS STILL RACISIM ON LATINO T.V. CHANNELS ......NOW THATS CRAZY !!

I was at a house party and this Puerto Rican guy from the Bronx was there. He was drunk as hell and was trying to start fights with everyone.

Then more and more blacks showed up to the party and he left because he said "I didnt know this was a black party."
