      @luckystar I always get confused when people talk about Puerto RIcans like its a race. I live in NYC where there are millions of puerto ricans and honestly they all look so different from each other. I’ve seen some that are black, brown, some that even look asian, some that are white as scandinavians etc. I wonder how many people still think Latino is a race. I mean look at Rosie Perez, Jlo, Ricky Martin, Josh Segarra, and Ricardo Rossello, they are all puerto rican but they look different from each other. Different phenotype, different colors, likely different genetic makeup etc.
