I agree about the white pop not being as large as it's said to be, Tri racials are definatley the majority and judging by some tests they seem to Euro, native and African in that order. From what I've read afro Venezuelans(blacks, mulattos) seem to be around 15-25% of the people.

Since we are talking about all of these new world ethnic groups, who do yall think are the least racially mixed group from the new world ? It has to be a toss up between Black Haitians and White Americans.

What is even funnier is when you meet a person who is as White as the blond and blue eyed nordic Thor, yet he/she still claim to have some Cherokee in them.

Hey adirondackguy123: After 312 posts, haven't you figured out by now that "The Source" is probably a 12 year old kid trying to **** you off? Even a monkey with a typewriter can write more intelligent posts.

Good point, I really shouldn't respond to his ignorant posts but I just can't help myself, I'm trying to help him out from sounding like someone who rides the short bus to school.

i know right. it's always white people who are straight up anglo exclaiming to everybody they're part native. even the real natives don't make a big deal out of it as they do. lol.

I bet ColombianaBoricuana and Adirondackguy123 would refuse to admit that these 2 Afro Colombians have phenotypes that would look right at home in Haiti. Instead they will insist that they look Triracial with signficant Spanish and Amerindian admixture.

WRONG, they do look typical for Afro Colombians. Most Afro Colombians do not look like Prince or Alicia Keys.
