Where are the Black Spanish speaking neighborhoods in the US ? I have only seen two neighborhoods in the country where I saw a lot of Black people speaking Spanish: Allapatah in Miami and the South BX in NY. I don't know if the Black Panamanians and Black Hondurans have their own neighborhood in Brooklyn? I know there's a lot of Black Colombians in Houston and DC but again I don't know if they have their own neighborhood. From what I heard about Houston, the Black Colombians are all spread around.

I would imagine Washington Heights since it is a Dominican neighborhood and a large majority if them are black. I think black Spanish speakers are sprinkled a little bit of everywhere, woke identify with their nationality or ethnicity more than their race. Maybe DC I know there was an Afro Colombia festival there.

I believe that Los Angeles has some Black Mexicans, as well as some Black folks that came from Central American countries(i.e.-Belize, Honduras, Costa Rica, Panama, etc.).

There are quite a few Dominicans in cities in eastern Massachusetts, especially Lawrence.

I didn't really cite Dominicans because most do not identify as such and didn't want to start an identity war. I was bringing up people who self-identify as such so there would be no issue. In LA, do they live in African American neighborhoods? I know Los Rakas, Panamanian group, lives in Oakland. Oakland is predominantly African American right?

Oakland isn't predominantly Black and it may barely be mostly Black in terms of plurality. It is the Blackest major city in CA though.

Also, I wouldn't count out Dominican neighborhoods, as many do identify as being Black.

I'm not sure about Los Angeles, but I know that they are there.

Dominicans are mulatto you one-droppists.

There are black Dominicans, white Dominicans, native looking Dominicans. But for the sake of the thread, I would agree with Washington Heights, also the western Bronx. We do have more blacks than just about any other hispanic group.

There is no such thing as the "one drop rule", as everyone in the world would be Black and "Mulattoes" would have way more than just one drop. With that said, many Dominicans are Black and identify as such.

Brooklyn's got many. My friend was half black, half Puerto Rican and spoke Spanish fluently.
