Puerto Rico is nowhere near 70% White, unless you consider Puerto Ricans that look like this for example to be White.


If that is what you consider to be White, than yeah Puerto Rico is 70% White.

Exactly, couldn't have said it better myself.

once again afro Colombians make up around 20% of the population, and yes Mestizo's in Colombia are the majority because the majority of Colombians are mainly Amerindian/white mixed, not mulattos. Native ancestry is predominate over african for most Colombians the same with most Venezuelans.


All the Hondurans you know are probably Garifunas and their a very small portion of Honduras's population among the Indio-mestizo majority.

Source please stop talking you just sound ridiculous.
yeah, i agree. i think he's confusing colombian mestizos for mulattos or triracials because colombian mestizos have a little bit more african presence in their dna compared to mexicans or central americans (whose african presence is pretty much null). but seriously, colombian mestizos have no more than 10 or 15% african blood. it's really tiny. the indigenous and white components greatly outnumber the african component. i think colombian mestizos have a little bit more white in them which is why you'll see a lot of fair and eurocentric looking mestizos, but it really depends on which city your in. you can be in one city and see a lot of euro looking mestizos and in another one, you'll see more native looking mestizos. most of the mestizos i know and have encountered look like an even mix of both native and white ancestry.

Yeah I agree about Colombia's mestizo's being whiter than say Central americans/Mexicans or Ecuadorians, And for african admixture in Mestizos is probably between 1-10%, The Mestizo majority remained for the most part isolated in the andean Mountains away from the afro population.

African presence in Central America is null. You never heard of Panama and Belize.

Compared to South America. And I guess I should've excluded Panama,. Nicaragua, and Belize from my statement, but really other than those 3 countries, African blood/presence is null in the majority native/mestizo countries Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, and Costa Rica (majority white/mestizo).

yeah mexicans, central americans, and ecuadorian mestizos are mostly over half native american, the rest being euro ancestry. i think on average colombians mestizos are slightly over half white (55-60% euro) and 40-45% native and whatevers left (1-10%) is african. mestizos and blacks rarely mixed after colonial times due to lack of communication.
