Black Nicaraguans[edit]

This article is incorrect in that it states Nicaragua has 0% black people. This is not true, about 10% of Nicaragua's population is black, it has the most black people(in terms of numbers not percentages) of any Central American country.


List of cities by population is incorrect.[edit]

Please use this to update list: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Latin_American_cities_by_population

As an example, Santo Domingo, capital of the Dominican Republic is actually the 7th largest Latin American city but it is not currently present in this article.

Latin European racially based Casta system? What?[edit]

I read that in the "Inequality" section. It says the inequality is due to a historical casta system. The sentence is followed by a ton of citations, so it is likely that the author knew it was controversial. Anyway, that's absolute nonsense. Sure, there was slavery in latin america, and blacks always had less opportunities and all, but that's not a casta system! Incendiary Iconoclasm 07:15, 11 December 2015 (UTC)

Everyone is encouraged to copyedit articles, add content and remove content if they have knowledge about the topic at hand or are willing to do the necessary research to improve the article. If your not sure ...best to leave as is . Bellow are some books on the topic. -- Moxy (talk) 07:32, 22 December 2015 (UTC)

population[edit]

I updated population numbers to match the numbers listed in the 2015 World Population Prospects. Since other articles for individual countries may report population from different sources, these numbers may be inconsistent with other articles. -- phoebe / (talk to me) 01:41, 7 January 2016 (UTC)
