Out of curiousity, how do brown skinned PRs deal with those examples your describing? See what broke Black Americans out of that mindset was the fact that back then the KKK didn't see skintones, they only saw non-whites period! Does the Island of Puerto Rico have this much diversity among people: check out website->

    Well that is precisely the difference between Latin America and the states. In the states, you are viewed as just another n****r no matter what if you have black in you, so you have no coice but to band together. In LA, you can have a black grandmother, but still be considered white, so there is less of a chance in this case that the people will come together. So this is the problem for the brown skin people on the island.
