Yes or no. It's like all Hispanic people are the same in your mind?

Doninicabs and Puerto Ricanís in NY BOSTON CT RI NJ have a very discernible Accent. Still a little sounds carribean Hispanic with more of a northern black sounds with the complimentary urban lingo.

In Baltimore, 2nd genration Hispanic kids have a totally black Baltimorean Accent. On the phone you would think they were black. Idk about Philly.

I dont understand the relationship between having a foreign accent and being assimilated.
Do people with accent have not yet assimilated?
under that logic Arnold Schwarzenegger has not assimilated yet!
I know lots of people in the Bronx that have no accent and have not yet assimilated to the mainstream american culture.

This whole question has no logic.

Hispanic Americans don't need to be "assimilated" or diluted or compromised. Like all groups, they are as they are. Nothing further. We don't need labels and boxes to put people in (verbal cages).
