And there are Blacks who have said nasty things to/about other races. Or there are Blacks who say nasty things about other Blacks based on religion/national origin/ethnicity. Prejudice exists everywhere. Its still terrible, but making things out to be one sided is ridiculous.

Agree. My experiences have been that many hispanics don't like to associate with blacks. Not all but many don't. Not saying black people don't feel the same way, but not nearly on the same level as hispanics in general. Pretty sad if you ask me. Think things would be different if people actually made the effort to befriend people of races other than their own. But for many...I guess that is completely out of the question.

puerto ricans and blacks just have tolerance for each other because they live side by side.
there is still a language barrier there tho, so it's not always a cordial relationship. it's like
dealing with any other group of people. Some you can deal with and some you can't.

Most puerto ricans that live in neighborhoods with black people know English.

This thread is dumb...and trying to make sweeping generalizations is pointless. Most groups get along with eachother because they have to...the end.

NO they don't. Many Puerto Ricans mock poor Black people in there manner of dress and speech and even mannerism yet they are still very prejudice. They appropriate black culture styling and never get check on it. And the sambos out there go around talking about black and latino unity. Spare me.

The only Hispanic group that has deep seated, cultural bias against all things black is by far Dominicans. And that's driven by the wars/conflict with Haiti for 200 years. Walk down the street with "natural" black hair and oftentimes women are berated and humiliated for it in DR...that didn't just disappear when they moved here in large numbers. Ironically so many have similar phenotypes as Blacks I find it hard to reconcile how someone can look in the mirror, look at their parents, family, friends, and not see the strong black influence. It is really a fascinating psychosis the country and people are under.

Black people need to start looking out for Blacks and stop trying to "friends" with everyone. How many immigrants come to American looking solely for the purposes of "integration" and "friendship"? They mostly come here to built communities and make money, forget being your friend it's all about economic competition from the door! How many Latinos own businesses in Black neighborhoods?? We all know the answer to that and it's a lot! Now how many BLACK OWNED businesses are frequented by latinos? Think about that. Back on the PR's, when are Black people going to wake up. Just because you stuck in Ghetto asylum with another group doesn't make them you friend.
