Being from New England I grew up around A LOT of PRs.
The 36 years I spent around them, has definitely NOT made me a fan. If I had to give a %age of them that were just plain dogsh*t, I'd say 80% because I'm trying to be nice.
If a room has more blacks in it, then they try to "be down".If there's more whites in it then yes, they try to identify as white. It was so funny to watch this PR guy say so emphatically and proudly "I'm white!", and watch the expression on people's faces...everybody else knew what he didn't. Just laughable.
I don't doubt the stats, but my opinion of them is based on what I've seen them do, based on their own actions. Indefensibly and criminally stupid.

"Venezuelan and Brazilian girls got the best lookin women..."?????
or do you want to post that "...Venezuela and Brazil got the best looking women..."?
Or that "...Venezuelan and Brazilian girls are better looking than Puerto Rican girls.."?
Your original post is extremely confusing.

You can dispatch this whole nonsense,

This person is referring to Puerto Ricans, certainly NOT stateside Ricans who master English.

So you shouldnt feel alluded.

Actually, I don't feel any kind of way. There will be stereotypical accusations no matter where you go. What can we do, right? Being totally honest however, there ARE those that do make Puerto Ricans and latinos on a whole, look bad. But since that's something that also applies to EVERY race and culture - I wouldn't be ignorant and judge an entire race/culutre.. At the end of the day, I love my culture. I love the spirit of my people. But it's always fun to mess with mental midgets.:)

That would be people like Jorge making them look bad , you can see how he tries to create a divide between Puerto Ricans based on their geographical location.He also likes to use derogatory terms like "gringo" and others, He and people like him will always be part of the problem, never part of the solution

For starters, some of us make a clear distinction between Puerto Ricans and stateside Ricans.
Puerto Ricans are those born and raised in Puerto Rico.
We all, stateside Ricans and Puerto Ricans alike, have a responsibility to preserve our distinctive Hispanic culture.
We, Puerto Ricans, have to insist on our close ties with Latin America and Spain for obvious reasons. Our main language is Spanish, our culture is Latin American.
We owe so much to each and every stateside Rican who insist and demand that we do so.
Stateside Ricans, while being loyal to your states of origin and contributing to Puerto Rico's US influence, demand from us, Puerto Ricans, that we preserve Puerto Rico's distinctive culture and Ibero American ethnicity.
What I still am unable to understand is the fact the US insists on having a colony here in Puerto Rico, while the vast majority of us voted against it on Nov 2012.
Can you think of anything more undemocratic as having and insisting on a colony against the will of the colonized?
Why does the US have colonies, in the first place, under the disguise of territories, in the 21st century?
It makes no sense!
That's the reason I distinguish between gringos, ugly US Americans, from real US Americans.
Gringos insist on their colonies, neo colonies and a US' imperial views of the world, while US Americans are appalled at any US leaders who insist on "playing the role of a 19th century empire".
Hey, by the way, I firmly believe that the only way to bring both stateside and Puerto Ricans together, under one nation, is thru statehood.
Regardless, when we become a state-islanders will still be Puerto Ricans, while stateside Ricans will be from their own states of origin.
Always remember, Latina-that it was the US which came to Puerto Rico, not the other way around.

We are all people , all Americans , there is no need to distinguish ourselves any farther than that unless one has an agenda.There are good and bad people in the world but you seem to feel the only good ones are the ones that agree with you in ALL aspects , otherwise the childish 1/2 truths and derogatory names come out in high drama.I really enjoy how you twist the actual results from the Nov.2012 and try to say that the US insists on a colony... Very funny, the only thing keeping Puerto Rico as it is are the Puerto Ricans, The President has made that quite clear and you keep referring to colonies, where are these colonies where the people are being forced to endure such hardships at the hands of the evil "gringos" ?
The simple fact is that you resort to the name calling like a small child with no viable argument.Always remember that the reason the US is here is not because they were not forced or voted out but because the people of Puerto Rico didn't tell them to go. The Puerto Rican people are united under the US flag, the only thing separating them are the bigots from both sides.And also remember that the US came to Puerto Rico during the Spanish American war was because they were one of the two main possessions of the Spanish in he region. Spain ceded Puerto Rico because it knew it had stripped the island of its native population and easy to get resources. When the US granted citizenship to the island few if any said said no.
Popular referendums in 1967 and 1993 and 2012 demonstrated that the majority of Puerto Ricans still supported their special status as a U.S. commonwealth.
Apparently few think " the fact the US insists on having a colony here in Puerto Rico, while the vast majority of us voted against it on Nov 2012.
Can you think of anything more undemocratic as having and insisting on a colony against the will of the colonized?"
Seems to those not filled with bitterness and anger that the people of Puerto Rico want to keep things just the way they are.

I guess not everyone loved the Spanish a wiki C&P since some love to use them

In the early 19th century, Puerto Rico had an independence movement which, due to the harsh persecution by the Spanish authorities, met in the island of St. Thomas. The movement was largely inspired by the ideals of Simón Bolívar in establishing a United Provinces of New Granada, which included Puerto Rico and Cuba. Among the influential members of this movement were Brigadier General Antonio Valero de Bernabe and María de las Mercedes Barbudo. The movement was discovered and Governor Miguel de la Torre had its members imprisoned or exiled.[37]

With the increasingly rapid growth of independent former Spanish colonies in the South and Central American states in the first part of the 19th century, the Spanish Crown considered Puerto Rico and Cuba of strategic importance. To increase its hold on its last two New World colonies, the Spanish Crown revived the Royal Decree of Graces of 1815. Printed in three languages: Spanish, English and French, it was intended to attract non-Spanish Europeans, with the hope that the independence movements would lose their popularity if new settlers had stronger ties to the Crown. Hundreds of families, mainly from Corsica, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy and Scotland, immigrated to the island.[38]

Free land was offered as an incentive to those who wanted to populate the two islands on the condition that they swear their loyalty to the Spanish Crown and allegiance to the Roman Catholic Church.[38] It was very successful and European immigration continued even after 1898. Puerto Rico today still receives Spanish and European immigration.
The Original Lares Revolutionary Flag

Poverty and political estrangement with Spain led to a small but significant uprising in 1868 known as Grito de Lares. It began in the rural town of Lares, but was subdued when rebels moved to the neighboring town of San Sebastián. Leaders of this independence movement included Ramón Emeterio Betances, considered the "father" of the Puerto Rican independence movement, and other political figures such as Segundo Ruiz Belvis. Slavery in Puerto Rico was abolished in 1873.[39]
Flag flown by Fidel Vélez and his men during the "Intentona de Yauco" revolt

Leaders of "El Grito de Lares" went into exile in New York City. Many joined the Puerto Rican Revolutionary Committee, founded on December 8, 1895, and continued their quest for Puerto Rican independence. In 1897, Antonio Mattei Lluberas and the local leaders of the independence movement in Yauco organized another uprising, which became known as the Intentona de Yauco. They raised what they called the Puerto Rican flag, which was adopted as the national flag. The local conservative political factions opposed independence. Rumors of the planned event spread to the local Spanish authorities who acted swiftly and put an end to what would be the last major uprising in the island to Spanish colonial rule.[40]

In 1897, Luis Muñoz Rivera and others persuaded the liberal Spanish government to agree to Charters of Autonomy for Cuba and Puerto Rico. In 1898, Puerto Rico's first, but short-lived, autonomous government was organized as an "overseas province" of Spain. This bilaterally agreed-upon charter maintained a governor appointed by Spain, which held the power to annul any legislative decision, and a partially elected parliamentary structure. In February, Governor-General Manuel Macías inaugurated the new government under the Autonomous Charter. General elections were held in March and the autonomous government began to function on July 17, 1898.[41][42][43]

Gringos insist that the US owns Puerto Rico while Americans believe that Puerto Rico is a separate nation, and as such has two choices, either share the US sovereignty with the other US states, while preserving our Latin American identity, or own a its sovereignty as a separate nation.

Good points,bro.

True. If we demanded independence like the Phillippines. We would have been granted independence. Our best shot was under Munoz. But, he sold us out.

Our only viable choice is statehood. We have come too far. However, It's too late for independence and i don't see the current status quo changing anytime soon.(Outside of some major world catastrophe such as a war or something along those lines where Pro-USA sentiments may be running at full blast)...The status of PR will remain as it is.

The position of Washington could easily be "Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free"

The U.S.A. makes a tremendous amount of money from PR....What's in it for them?. They could play a hold out this game for a while

Rosello was under the mistaken impression that getting rid of tax code 936 was going to facilitate bringing about statehood a whole lot quicker. It didn't quite work out that way.

Because Puerto Rican men knock women up left and right and leave them once the kid is born (or before then). And they cheat their women... even when they're pregnant! They have no morals or class.

How do I know? Ask my half- Puerto Rican, fatherless daughter one day.
