    hi everyone a correction needs to be made here Carlos Arroyo is NOT mulatto or bi-racial and neither are the majority of Puerto Ricans! nothing is more upssetting to me than when some people of european or African American ancestry presume to speak for Hispanic people or cultures. Recent DNA testing on the island has shown that a MAJORITY OF PUERTO RICANS 68.9% HAD MORE NATIVE AMERICAN OR “AMERINDIAN” TO QUOTE THE WEBSITE, ANCESTRY THAN ANYTHING ELSE SO PLEASE STOP ASSUMING THAT. The reason i say this is becuase i found him under a posting for Blake Griffin who is “bi-racial”(European/African). NOT TRYING TO BE A JERK JUST SAYING :)
