    Proof that Puerto Ricans are black.

    • NOTREALLY says:

      A single person proves the ethnic constitution/makeup of an entire group? That’s a new one
      Puerto Ricans are hardly anything defined since they are a mashup of groups some of which aren’t even very homogeneous themselves, agendas to assert certain groups as X or Y are incredibly silly

      • charicew says:

        The agenda to “Whiten” Puerto Ricans is silly.

        • reese00 says:

          its just the common narrative, no one wants to look or be associated with sub-saharan african genes, they almost get offended by it…you see it on these sites where if its for a white american, they’ll name every nationality in the book, however for afro americans is just “african american”…afro americans/caribbean/latino(a) have sig. more genetic diversity, you could be from 5 different tribes at one time, but people don’t care, why? because they don’t care or want to know more about black people

          • reese00 says:

            they’ll say, “he/she doesn’t look black” dude, you should stop trying to insert yourself in other peoples cultures when you come from a place of arrogance and ignorance…you know nothing about black people, thats why you get so offended when you can’t just “tag along”

          • NOTREALLY says:

            what a useless rant, Tego Calderón looks black because he’s black, that doesn’t make ALL Puerto Ricans black, my previous post is pretty fair as to what Puerto Ricans are as a whole, a mashup, funny how you guys talk about agendas when you’re the ones with a clear agenda

        • NOTREALLY says:

          You know … it’s almost like PR was continuously inhabited by whites, natives and blacks for CENTURIES.
          Boiling down PR’s racial background to “white” or “black” is about the most disrespectful thing you could do, since you seem to care about it so much.
          Crying about agendas while claiming EVERY SINGLE Puerto Rican is black is beyong laughable.

          • porkarella says:

            The “whites” have part of non white roots they’re exotic like every “white”muricans, you and them are ——- non whites for CENTURIES.

    He’s dumb as hell, he is not a Black Puerto Rican. He’s a mixed Puerto Rican!

  3. Dropit! says:

    He was born in Puerto Rico but his roots are from Dominican Republic. Both his parents are Dominican. Besides he does not look anything Puerto Rican. Even black Pto Ricans dont look like that. He’s Dominican.

  4. jamekah says:

    But he always raps for Puerto Rico almost all his songs are about PR

  5. ashley says:

    no he is not he’s dominican! He even has a song called domincana that talks about his race.
