No, jabaos are white complexion I mean light complexion some can be white complexion, coarse hair, sometimes they have green or blue eyes, but their hair is extremely kinki. I guess an example of how they look like in American culture would be Sinbad the comedian--that is the prime example of how a jabao looks like. There are tons of African-Americans that have that same complexion but of course they are not hispanics they are African-American,same as mulatoes. When you see an African American that is not dark in complexion,yet they are called themselves AM that's exactly how mix Cubans look like--example--Alicia Keys would be what we consider mulata-and like that many others.

Most mulatos(as) are brown-caramel complexion but some and many have beautiful hair, it can be beautiful curls, some have straight and nice curvy bodies.
Now, Cuba is full of black and mulatos(as), there are some provinces where the white presence is more noticeable,but Havana is full of black people and a mix of races.
There are tons of black Cubans here in USA but most of them do not live in Miami because it's said to be a prejudice place for them,therefore, some opt to live in the norteast like New Jersey, NY,etc.
Thank you Ami for the explanation ... English isnt my first language so it gets hard sometime to explain race differences

Yeah but hes a dirty stinking hippy who only moved there because it was free.

Jokes aside I was only using that video as an example, I've met a lot of Black Cubans and Dominicans living in African American neighborhoods and my thoughts that Black Hispanics often live with Black Americans was confirmed when I read a study about it. I can't find it anymore, tho.

Well Hialeah would still be the first place that comes to mind when thinking of more multiracial Hispanics/Black families/folks

Absolutely wrong .. Most living in Hialeah are either old cuban people or "white" cubans ...

In fact I can say that black community in Hialeah is very limited to a few . There is just a small town in the middle of Hialeah next to 4 ave and 21 st ( nw74 ) is all black community , most afro-americans

well, I always thought of mulatto as the mix of white and black... like cubans. White skinned people with full lips or broad nose, for example, are a very common sight here.

Perhaps in Cuba they have more names, like the ones you guys mentioned, because of the variety of mulatto breeding and different physical results. Mulattoes nonetheless...

One mulatto is darker than other mulattoes; some were born with blond hair, others with brown skin...whatever... It has become a trend to see a variety of them, therefore is much more easier to classify them in different groups... especially in a country like Cuba.

I was in Little Havana 3 days ago and saw old black Cubans talking to each other... and there was one that looked like from a tribe. I've had my share of seeing black cubans or african tribes before, but the lady I saw that day left me speechless.

Do you still have African tribes in Cuba?

The Cubans in Miami who are "white" probably have some African ancestry some where down the line, let us not forget the Moors/Murainos
