PR's grow up with Blacks, it's no surprise it's thrown around all the time with these young kids. You see mixed groups all the time, and some angry PR girls even be saying it twice a sentence. What's really funny is that it's white people who always question this, like, "Why can the PR's say it but not me?", on some real hurt shit. The point is whites trip harder on PR's saying 'nigga' than blacks trip on PR's saying 'nigga' from what I've seen. Don't trip, I know plenty of black folks who have to bottle in a comment after hearing a Spanish kid say it, but I don't think it's white people's place to be questioning anything that PR's do, because to them it's natural. When they're young they let it fly like crazy, when they're older it becomes less common. "They ain't even half black" is a real limited view of the situation.

ALL FROM MIL TOWNE NORTH SIDE REPN.


BUT ANYWAY AHYO ITS JUST LIKE US AFRO-AMERICANS WE PRETTY MUCH HAVE SOME KIND OF NATIVE AMERICAN OR (WHITE) ENGLISH, FRENCH, BRITISH ANCESTORS AKA WHITE OR WASHED DOWN EUROPEANS MEANING WHITES WHO ARE NO LONGER EUROPEANS LOSING THERE TONGUE AND THE WAY THEY SPEAK LIKE THEY DO IN EUROPEAN COUNTRIES. BUT BACK ON POINT TO ME JUT CAUSE RICANS HAVE W AFRICAN IN THEM DON'T MEAN THEY ARE BLACK MOST OF DEM ARE CANELLA(DARK WHITE) NOW THE ONLY BORICUAS THAT SHOULD USE THE WORD ARE THE AFRO-BORICUAS.


THINK IN PUERTO RICO THE SAME TYPE OF RICANS THAT YOU HERE SAY NI--A HERE IN THE STATES THAT ARE REALLY LIGHT WHITEISH LOKING ARE THE SAME ONES WHO ARE RACIST TO THE AFRO-BORICUAS CAUSE THEY ARE BROWN TO BLACK SKINNNED THATS A FACT


P.R IS 80% WHITE 8 % ABOUT 14% MIXED AND THE TAINO POP.IS UNDEER 0.1

In case of any confusion about my earlier post, I don’t think ANY minority should say the word. You can argue that word should be struck from the face of the earth. But many times you see a mixed group, blacks and PR’s, Blacks callin PR’s ‘nigga’, PR’s saying ‘nigga’ back, and maybe bring it home and calling they’re PR boys ‘nigga’ too. Fools say that shit to me but you don’t hear it from my mouth.

Some puerto ricans I've seen look blacker than wesley snipes so they must be more than 30% black. I don't really think itz nessecary to say it tho, unless they look more black than hispanic, my opinion.

DUDE THERE AINT NO SUCH THING AS LOKKING HISPANIC THERE ARE BLACKS IN SOUTH AMERICA, THE SPANISH SPEAKING CARIBBEAN- THERE JUST CALLED HISPANICS OR LATINOS CAUSE THATS WHERE THEY COME FROM THEY COMBINED ALL THE LATIN AMERICAN SPANISH SPEAKING COUNTRIES AS AN BIG AZZ ETHNIC GROUP WHETHER MEXICANS, EL SALVAS, CUBANS, DOMINICAN REPS, PUERTO RICANS ETC LIKE EACH OTHER OR NOT OR HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH ONE ANOTHER, I REALLY DON'T KNOW WHY THEY CREATED THE LABELS BUT THIS ALSO IS ANOTHER WAY TO ACCOUNT FOR IMMIGRANT POPULATIONS FROM THOSE AREAS BLACK-HISPANIC OR NOT


AND OF COURSE! LOIZA HAS ALOT OF JET BLACK PUERTO RICANS AND A FEW OTHER CITIES ASK ANY PUERTO RICAN ABOUT LOIZA, CAROLINA AND SEE WHAT THEY SAY OR THEY MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT IT!

Blacc is just a skin color not an ethnicity, there are plenty of blacc latinos. Puerto Ricans etc, being Latino doesnt exclude anyone from being blacc, just not African American

That right there is the root of the problem. A lot of folks who I work with are Rican and even though they look either straight up white or latino, they always say, "well i got some negro in my blood".

well all latino people have black in them and all the ones i know say nigga cept for prolly the mexicans. i live around ricans, dominicans, colombians, and brazilians and they all say nigga and the blacks dont have a problem with it they all live in the same neighborhoods as the blacks i guess thats why they dont care.


im 100% brazilian. half black brazilian and half white brazilian, im a moreno and i look black cept my hair is curly and i say nigga all the time noone has a problem with it cause they think im black but even if my skin wasnt black since im latino noone really takes it offensive. well i cant say noone, but noone in my hood.

just remember N.I.G.G.A.=never,ignorant,getting,goals,accomplished so if you from the hood and hang around the NIGGA'S that use to be called a nigger by the cracka slave owners and they don't mind you saying it it's cool with them just be careful when you come to my hood.

How would the spanish peolpe feel if I said what up spick?

I also wonder how a white dude would feel if I say what up cracka?

BUT AT THE SAME TIME THEY DISCRIMINATE AGAINST THE AFRO-BORICUAS OR MAY NOT LIKE THEM CAUSE THEY ARE DARK,RACISM IN PR IS A MOTHA JUST CAUSE SOMEONE HAS WEST AFRICAN BLOOD IN THEM DON'T MEAN ANYTHING IF YOUR GRANDMA OR GR GRANDA A NEGRO AND YOUR A WHITE RICAN YOUR WHITE WITH SOME NEGRO ANCESTRY. IT'S JUST AS CASTRO SAID MANY CUBANS THAT ARE NOT BLACK HAVE A FOOT IN THE KITCHEN. BUT NOT ALL OF THEM.

AFRICAN AMERICANS FOR INSTANCE PEOPLE LIKE TO SAY WE HAVE EUROPEAN BLOOD/WHITE IN US! SO WHAT! MY PARENTS ARE BLACK MY GRANDMA(FATHER SIDE) IS CREOLE AND MY OTHA 3 GRNADPAENTS ARE BLACK ALL HAVE DIFFERENT SHADES OF BROWN BUT BACK TO THE POINT.



WHY DO PUERTO RICAN SAY THAT THEY AINT EVEN HALF BLACK YOU ASK?

>>>> WELL SOME OF THEM ARE A AFRO-RICAN AND A WHITE RICAN MAKES HALF BLACK/HALF WHITE RICAN.


BUT NEVA THE LESS THE PUERTO RICANS I HERE IT FROM ARE DARK WHITE(CANELLA COLORED)


ONE THING I CAN'T UNDERSTAND IS PUERTO RICO IS__


Ethnic groups:
white (mostly Spanish origin) 80.5%, black 8%, Amerindian 0.4%, Asian 0.2%, mixed and other 10.9%
