In the book Boricua: Anthologies of Puerto Rican Writings, it was pointed out that many Puerto Rican parents told their sons and daughters not to bring blacks home.
Maybe I’m biased because I’m Puerto Rican myself, but Boricuas simply do it better.
Word got around the church that Gwen's mother did not want her getting involved with black men; only whites and non-black Latinos; preferably I've heard of other cases where Latino parents threatened to disown their daughters if they were to marry a black man.
As disgusting as this sounds, it seems to be only a minor example of Latin American racism, which so many Latinos I have met deny exists.
It may look like they’re just randomly mixing stuff in a bowl but in reality, they are really brewing perfection. And when you try to ask for the recipe, they don’t have it. Why they include the guacamole’s seed is another mystery. They always want to know what’s in the food they eat. Sometimes, I come to think, “do Mexican men ever lie to women? They can even say a bad word and it will sound good to you. I am trying to move forward.” They will obey by letting you be and not talking to you. You will always be that special girl in their life.If you can count on one thing, it’s that Puerto Ricans will arrive hours later to anything.Don’t expect punctuality to be a recurring thing throughout your relationship. My boyfriend and I were having a conversation about black men vs. (He is black and Puerto Rican.) It started getting intense, and I said, "You don't get it! Even on social media, my heart will sink as I see black women I've known from high school or elementary school now say they're "black and Filipino," "black and Puerto Rican," "black and [whatever race]" -- just don't say you're fully black! I am intelligent, can hold a conversation and come from a background more like The Cosby Show than the PJs. I digress.) I know how to cook, and I am known for being "everyone's cheerleader" (that is, supportive). I don't mean races felt this way about black women, but the fact that my own men do has made me consider turning my back on them multiple times. It would be one thing if it were true love, but some are just doing it because they see it as a prize. For some reason they think only black women wear extensions. I have a degree -- two, actually, including a master's. And, most importantly, why are our own men making us feel this way?
