Many people do not know this, but Hispanics (mainly Puerto Ricans) and Blacks (African Americans, Nigerian Americans, and Jamaican Americans) led to the creation of what we know today as Hip Hop in the South Bronx, New York.The original Tats Cru was a famous group of Puerto Ricans from The Bronx that are well recognized in many cities of the world. Crazy Legs is a Puerto Rican from New York that was part of a break dancing group called Rock Steady Crew.Dj Charlie Chase was a Puerto Rican that played Hip Hop records when Hip Hop originated.
Some black women have been so discouraged by this knowledge that they don’t pursue the men.I think a commentary from an “insider” would be good, so what say you?I mean sure, we identify with the oppression that all "colored" people have faced by white people..at the same time, it definitely is true that most Mexican guys I know wouldn't want to date a black girl (to be honest neither would I).Now I have known one Mexican girl and two white girls that have dated black guys, and two of those girls had really bad experiences.Now, that I live in Virginia people always think that I am mixed with Black and White.
They would have never guessed that I am Puerto Rican if I did not say anything to the people in Virginia.
So this is a kind of hypocrisy I think many cultures have, and it's not something that's going to be ever be eliminated you know.
Every race/culture just tends to look out for their own (and blacks do this just as much if not more than anyone else), but at the same time they do sympathize with how blacks have been oppressed by whites.
I love Black women have always like them since I was a kid.
In the Bronx, New York Hispanics and Blacks were the majority and still are the majority.
I mean it's like a kind of hypocrisy in the Latin American community I'll admit because on the one hand we identify with blacks that whites are the common exploiters, but on the other hand, we don't want our kids to all run off with negroes (and, yes we still call them NEGROES in Spanish by the way).
