Like for example: do you consider a person mixed with African American & Puerto Rican part of your culture?

IMO I don't.

It depends on what country you are talking about in Latin America. In places like the Caribbean, there is a lot more mixed blood. There is African, European and Indigenous (even though those are very few now).

In Puertorico, Dominican Republic, Cuba, places like that, the blood is basically the same. They mixed very well with the Europeans that came and conquered them. In Mexico for example, they didn't.

Mexico for being such a large and populated country, still has a very high population of native indians, something you are finding less and less in the Americas.

There is a large percentage of what we call Mestizos (mixed with European and Indian blood) in Mexico but there is also like 40% pure blooded inidans living in Mexico as well.

That's why I argued in another thread that the term "Latino" doens't apply to us very well because there are some countries or Islands that have a lot of mixed blood and the term Latino doesn't describe them very well.

exactly...

african americans are descendants of WEST AFRICA, Afro-Latinos are of EAST-AFRICA descent.

you can tell just by looking at the difference of their body physiques.

wait what are you talking about?

are you talking about african american/puerto rican or african blood in puerto rico?

there are subcultures within our cultures. for example, PRs who been raised in NY and those who been raised in the island. Mexicans raised in Mexico and those raised in the states, same with Cubans, Dominicans, you name it.

so are chinese-puertorican decendants, same goes for german and italian.

the simple thing here is the puertoricans ARE the decendants of a mixture between europian(mainly, heavily spanish)-africans(there are still sections with an abundant black community and Native indians. so yes almost every puertorican(even those who are white) have african roots.

It depends on whether they identify with their latino side. There are some mixed latinos that are more familiar with their latino culture than many full latinos.
