Sometime around the next 50-100 years Cuba, DR and Puerto Rico, would be dominated by mulatos.

Cuba: There has always been heavy Euro-Cuban immigration to Florida. Because of Cubas communist environment, there is little in-migration, with the exception of Haiti, and increase in race mixing. Haitian emigration to Cuba, and Spanish-Cuban immigration from Cuba to Florida is both increasing. To add to that, Cuba already has a large mulato population, around 40%

Puerto Rico: As of recently there has been an increasing number of Spanish-descended Puerto Ricans migrating to the states., unlike in previous decades when it was the mixed race Puerto Ricans who were leaving. On the flip side there is increasing immigration of blacks from the DR , Haiti, and the eastern Caribbean. Now we all know PR is a small island about the size of Connecticut, so there is bound to be some race mixing . And giving, Prs economy, it is not the hot spot is once was. PR already has a large Mulatto population, at around 40% as well.

Dominican Republic: DR is already a "mulato" country, making up about 80% of the country. To add to that , many white and mixed raced Dominicans leave for the US and Spain. While many black and mixed race Dominicans leave for Puerto Rico and the USVI. Also, there is large and increasing Haitian immigration to the DR. So there is definantly some movement going on.

Sounds more like an Africanization of the Carribean if you ask me. Whites are all leaving and have low birth rates. Africans have very high birth rates and are replacing them.

Also, most ''white' Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, and Cubans already have African ancestry and Indigenous ancestry too. Mulattos already dominate the Spanish Carribean.

Dont you mean Africanization? The Spanish Caribbean is already largely mulatto.
Though, I do see these countries SLOWLY getting blacker... then they already are.

That seems to be happening too in some South American countries.

I am Hispanic and let me just say:

They might face a harder time being accepted as one of them in parts of Mexico, Central and South Americas (hears so much racist jokes regarding blacks).

The way its going , its not just the Caribbean that's changing. By mid century the U.S. will be on it's way to Mulatization, with Afro- Blacks, Muslims, Latinos and Asians making up most of the population leaving the once dominant whites a dwindling minority.

DR and PR are actually mulatto-dominated. In PR they are simply whiter than DR, but most people in both places are of mixed ancestry and they wear this mixture on their faces!

Whites definitely make up a larger percentage of the PR population than in DR, but I doubt they actually are more than 50% (many near-white mulattoes in PR identify as white and that explains why many official figures for PR have whites as 80%.)

According to some sources, Cuba is already a mulatto-majority place.
