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 65.23.253.222 (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 69.112.103.196 (talkcontribs) 27 November 2006‎

DNA citations[edit]

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

There are over 100 Puerto Ricans living in Kuwait. How can that be verifed? 37.231.36.110 (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 37.231.36.110 (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)

Move discussion in progress[edit]

Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

Pictures of notable Puerto Ricans in info box[edit]

For the sample photos of notable Puerto Ricans in the info box, Why do you guys intend on putting the whitest-looking Puerto Ricans up there??? As if there are no mixed-looking Puerto Ricans or Afro-Puerto Ricans who are notable, famous, and worthy of recognition. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Spreadofknowledge (talkcontribs) 06:37, 14 December 2015 (UTC)
