The majority written here about Puerto Ricans is a lie. PUERTO RICANS ARE NOT MIXED WITH BLACKS. THE BLACKS WANT TO BE PUERTO RICAN, SO THEY ARE SPREADING FALSE LIES. PUERTO RICANS ARE PREDOMINANTLY EUROPEAN. THEY HAVE THE BEST OF THE EUROPEANS IN THEM: Spain, France, Italy, Ireland, Germany. Probably why there is so much prejudice against them here. Also, many are educated, and living prosperously. I wish the black race would stop trying to take credit for them. They are pathetic, and died of diseases in Puerto Rico like most of the Indians there.

Go to parts of the worst Bronx today, and you will mostly see blacks. No, not black Puerto Ricans. Just blacks.

So many are educated, but all we hear is how poorly Puerto Ricans are doing.

Sick of the prejudice.

If you know anything about European history, you will understand why there are different hues of white people..Ex. Nordic and Mediterrean. Ignorant people tend to falsely consider white people who have olive, to be of mixed races, and that is not always true. Original Italians were never pale skinned people. They became white after mixing with the celts and Germanic people. Tshere were non white Mongolians and gypsy Roma people in Europe, but not all whites mixed with them. As for Italians being black due to mixing with Moors. The moors were originally an Arab-berber white people. There were many blond Moors, as well as ones who mixed with blacks, but NOT all moors mixed with blacks. Like I said, original Italians were medium toned people. They were, as far as I am concerned, the GOLDEN RACE, NOT WHITE RACE.

Americans should adore Puerto Ricans, because they are Americas brothers and sisters, and most integrated.

Huge Mistake[edit]

This article says there are 3.9m Puerto Ricans in Puerto Rico, when this is the population of the island, and not everyone in the island is Puerto Rican. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 10 June 2007‎

Amerindian influence[edit]

Anyone who goes to Puerto Rico can see that the Taino/Amerindian (Native American)presence lives. Lets not be so careless in such an important aspect of our ancestral history. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 27 November 2006‎

DNA citations[edit]

Hi guys, there are not many references. This peer-reviewed article deals with the dna issue.

Semi-protected edit request on 13 November 2014[edit]

There are over 100 Puerto Ricans living in Kuwait. How can that be verifed? (talk) 00:07, 13 November 2014 (UTC)

Does Kuwait have a census? Stickee (talk) 00:18, 13 November 2014

Yes it does but it does not factor in ethnicity. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)

Then unfortunately without a source we cannot add it in. Plus I'm not sure 100 people qualifies for "Regions with significant populations"; I'd want to get rid of the other countries in the list with <1000 too possibly. Stickee (talk) 01:52, 13 November 2014 (UTC)
