forget em.
I'm from all over, I don't even reside in Philly anymore. But everywhere I been with PR's they are pretty much the same. Thing is it's always black people who claim some weird allegiance to Puerto Ricans. Why I don't know?!

When I lived in Washington we had neighbors who were a mixed couple, white male, black female.

You could not say "Hi"" without the women telling you she was from Jamaica and not an American Black. I could not have cared less, but it was a hoot. After two years, she would still tell you she was Jamaican......

It is really a fascinating psychosis the country and people are under.

I've heard PR's say EVIL things about the racial make up of Dominicans as well. Just the other day I heard some say some awful things about Black people in spanish and didn't think I understood. Yet every other word out of a Puerto Ricans mouth is the yo,yo N-word more a many times they say it more than Blacks! Puerto Ricans as a group don't if there are coming or going. They dislike Black people yet copy off us.That's plain disrespect in my book. The blame fall on Blacks for being too accepting and not building an economic and culture wall of protection around ourselves.

Because most black women don't take good care of themselves. It sounds generalizing but I've been proven right too often. Why don't think they complain that another women of another race is stealing their black men. Take a look in the mirror and sign up that one month free gym membership please.

It because the media has diluted Black men to thinking that Latinas are just an extension of Black women. Much of the media aimed a black men (especially young urban men) is saturated with latinas. They ate held out as some type of Ideal. It's brainwashing simple and plan. Here is a perfect example:

Anyplace "white" Spanish (Spain) or Portuguese (Portugal) Europeans went in the New World they exported their Eurocentric values with them, sort of like White Protestant England's "White Man's Burden" with a Latin twist.

It was the Spanish who first came up with "quadroon" and the other names as part of a caste system denoting how much white/European/Spanish blood (or lack thereof) a person had versus native Indian and later and or African.

All over South America, Cuba, Puerto Rico, etc.... there is the same thing you often see in the United States. A high value placed upon those with European/white ancestry as shown by their appearance versus those with Indian or African. Blacks, negras, n***er, or any of the other names are found all over those countries just as they are in the United States and used by the same persons; those whom have a white/European background and or look the part.

Go down to South Florida and more often than not the Blacks (African Americans, Haitians, dark Dominicanos, etc....) are often treated worse by the "white" Cuban population than white/Euro Americans. When you consider the history of race relations in Florida that is saying something. In fact when one was a teenage once had a Cuban neighbor who told me flat out there were no "Blacks" in Cuba. This woman was every bit racists as Italians, Irish and other whites living in our town.

Telenovellas rarely have actors with "black" features in lead roles. When they do appear it is usually as domestics or lower/working class persons. The few "darker" women you do see are just like many in the United States. Hair weaves and or "good hair" down their backs and facial features more in common with Europeans than Africans, all to suggest they are something of "mixed" race.

Families that would rather see their son or daughter die before they marry an African-American are quite happy with a Euro appearing Latino or Latina. Ricky Martin, Jennifer Lopez, Sofía Margarita Vergara Vergara etc... would be welcomed however. Even the Bush family gladly accepted Jeb's Latina wife. Indeed you *NEVER* would have had 'I Love Lucy" on American television if Lucille Ball had married a "darker" Cuban. Aside from his accent and last name you'd never have known Ricky Ricardo (Desi Arnez" was anything else than a very good-looking white guy.

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.
Why do I need to look out for Blacks?

I didn't make all Blacks in the world. If a Black person wants a business, its not my responsibility to make it run. Do a good enough job with your business, and you'll get customers. Do a ****ty job with your business, then you have no customers and you go out of business.

Its plain and simple.

But to be completely honest, when it comes to food and other products, people of all races go to big retailers like the major grocery stores, WalMart, Walgreens, CVS, etc. No small business can compete with that period.

And its not like you make a lot of money in a ****ty small business or have the opportunity to go up in the first. Managers in places like WalMart or McDonalds do get benefits and they make considerable more than the minimum wage.

That is because holding out a Euro/white woman for African American males would and does drive some persons up the wall. Tiger Woods and a few others not withstanding the idea of a black man laying up with a white woman sends off all kinds of warning bells.

Latinas OTOH can be a different story since they "technically" aren't *white* so they get a pass.

Friends of ours who work in LE and the courts relate all kinds of things from the prossies they come in contact with and apparently at least in NYC white and or many Latina hookers won't accept African American customers. This goes for genetic women and trans. At least for LE this means when working undercover a white male is usually sent as "bait' as AAs won't usually get a foot past the door.
