you’re disgusting.

Most Puerto Ricans are MIXED. Just because the census says that 75 percent of them are just white does not mean its true. I come from a Puerto Rican family and know all too well that they all wish they were white with blond hair and blue eyes. Even the ones who have tan skin and clearly look mixed, when you mention to them that they have African in them they look at you like your crazy. The census is something you fill out on your own so I know lots that love to fill in they are white cuz they believe its better. theres nothing wrong with being white or being black or mixed just wish people wouldn’t deny their roots or favor one over the other

Im Puerto Rican and yes the majority is white skinned I know I have lived there .M family is 95% fair skinned and a few tanned skinned !! So whats the big Deal . Just Because you see alot of Tan skinned Puerto Rican living here that are tanned skinned does not make the entire race dark.
I have many members of my family who have have blonde hair blue and green eyes including myself !!! If you dont know what you are talking about . dont say anything at all!!!

Well I’m an italian American from NY and I’ve been to Pto Rico, Dominican Republic and Mexico and I can say that Puerto Rican women are more beautiful and mostly white a european look. You do find the typical latina tan look but mostly are white. The Dominicans tend to be more mullatos or black while mexican have more indian features.

puerto rican chicks all fuck with black dudes. specially black dudes from the projects of new york. they’re getho as fuck.

Hope Moretti September 25, 2012 at 1:26 am

That can’t be true. You r a liar. Go to the North of Mexico and then tell me if they look indigenous.

Hope Moretti September 25, 2012 at 2:21 am

What a liar. I bet you haven’t even visited Mexico.
Mexico; North, Center, Coast and South
Go to the North of Mexico and then tell me if we all look indigenous. If you go to the South of Mexico, then you will find a lot of people with more indigenous blood.
Go to GUADALAJARA, SONORA, CHIHUAHUA, Sinaloa, Durango, or any other state in the North of Mexico and then tell me if we all look indigenous. Last but not least. We have that horrible stereotypes about Mexicans because most of the immigrants in US are from the South of Mexico. Not all of them but most of them. and they think we are all like that. Please if you hate Mexico and Mexicans just say it “I HATE MEXICANS” but don’t tell lies. Mexico is a huge country with different types of Mexicans, accents, cultures, features, words, and history.

miss universe, what else can i say

monica June 23, 2011 at 10:19 am

in the dominican republic there are some areas where there are more full black people than other areas like in the south. e.g. san pedro de macoris, that place is full of afro-dominicans [excluding mulattos] most are either descendants of african slaves or haitians, so i think pr is the same. some areas could have more people from one race than other areas, and i think that fixed look rafael is talking about are mulattos or mestizos? i dont know much about puerto rico, but this is what wiki says

White (mostly Spanish origin) 75.8%, Black 12.4%, Asian 0.2%, Amerindian 0.5%, SOR 7.8%, other 3.3%

i dont know if i believe this, because most puerto ricans do not look white like ricky martin, they either look mulatto e.g. rosie perez, la la vasquez or mestizo e.g. ramon rodriguez, roselyn sanchez

no June 26, 2011 at 7:23 pm

No way is Puerto Rico 75.8% white. Somebody is suffering from inferiority issues. And the black% population looks awfully low.

rafael June 26, 2011 at 7:26 pm

thats right keep denying,i guess youve been to the island,remember spain was there longer,and they settled

rafael June 23, 2011 at 6:53 am

hey fuzzybear,you must be confusing my posts with someone else,ive posted that we come in all colors,those puerto ricans that deny black blood still arent as bad as the ones who are black and tell everyone and their mother that all puerto ricans are black,what everyone here has to realize is that all kinds of people still move to pr and call it home,so they are prs and so are their kids born on the island,but it doesnt mean that now we all share their,bloodline

Fuzzybear June 23, 2011 at 9:23 am

To Rafael

I understand very well,but it’s no different than the ones,stating that all PR’s are white. Also how do you know those PR’s that are saying that,don’t share the same historical bloodline.I mean no offense,but didn’t you say you don’t live in PR?From my studying some areas are more populated by certain coloration,so maybe those people are coming from those areas .However I gotta say from the pic I googled,these people look pretty mixed to me.My nieces family are PR’s and they are without a doubt mixed

rafael June 22, 2011 at 9:06 pm

so what your saying is that edward james olmos and ricky martin look the same, really? im not even talking skin color,forget all that if you saw these 2 you wouldt be able to pick out the mexican by the shape of his head?you dont see danny trejo and think mexican?

Selena Garcia-Martinez June 22, 2011 at 10:01 pm

My point was that Puerto Ricans like any other latinos are all different, some look alike & some dont. Not that fixed look that you were talking about.

Fuzzybear June 23, 2011 at 5:25 am


Come on now,that’s not a fair comparison.There all kinds of Mexicans,just there all kinds of Puerto Ricans.How about :
damian chapa
Ricky Martin:
That’s more fair.Now to tell the truth,I wouldn’t have known.

Selena Garcia-Martinez June 22, 2011 at 8:34 pm

I loved her shes a very beautiful latina women. :D

WoW June 21, 2011 at 7:40 pm


Why would you assume that?There is no fixed look for them.That something I think you ignore.

rafael June 21, 2011 at 8:56 pm

wow yes there is a fixed look,thats why most puerto ricans can spot another

WoW June 21, 2011 at 9:04 pm

There is no fixed look,I work with a few puerto ricans and I couldn’t tell them apart from some of the other latina women there.There some that also live in my neighborhood,their different color,some are black or what I call black.I don’t know why your trying to fool people

Mercy June 21, 2011 at 9:17 pm


Where do you come up with that nonsense,there is no fixed look for Puerto Ricans.I hang out with Puerto Ricans,you have dark ones,light ones.Some with curly hair,some straight.Get out of here with that stuff.

Fuzzybear June 21, 2011 at 9:28 pm

To Rafael

There is no fixed look for PR’s.Let me guess,only the white ones are Puerto Ricans to you

rafael June 22, 2011 at 3:43 pm

no fuzzy bear my point is puerto ricans come in all colors,from the whitest to the blackest,but every time there is a white one all i hear is they must be mixed with white,but every time there is a black one, well see puerto ricans are black,you cant have it both ways

Selena Garcia-Martinez June 22, 2011 at 8:42 pm

@ Rafeal

Are you an idiot? Theres no fixed looked for Puerto Ricans? They look like any other latina women from Mexico,South America,Cuba,etc. PR’s like any other latinas are tan,light,dark,curly hair,straighten hair,short hair,long hair. Fixed look dude what the hell? I am Mexican from my dads side & puerto rican/italian from my mothers side but my moms grandmother & her family which are full puertoricans look like normal latina woman/men. They dont all look like multiplied twins who look exactly alike with a “fixed” look. Stop being ignorant.

Fuzzybear June 23, 2011 at 4:50 am

To Rafael

It’s funny out of the 4 people who commented,It’s me you reply to.Anyhow I never say all white Puerto Ricans had recent black heritage.I said going by your own DNA expert,1 in 3 did.However you guys go out of your way to deny it.I’ve seen PR’s that are obviously part black,who look you right in the face,and tell you there not.Then there others on this site that say the African blood in PR’s should have never happen,but they will take the benefits of having the black blood;but hate the source.

rafael June 21, 2011 at 6:19 pm

let me guess a whole bunch of people who are not puerto rican are going to post how she couldnt possibly be puerto rican and keep ignoring what puerto ricans really look like is that about right?

SparkleTime March 17, 2012 at 8:16 pm

She looks white.

andrew March 14, 2013 at 10:12 am
