Shocked Because there are Afro Latinos?
That is the idiotic statement I just ran into on the YouTube discussion section. He claimed that it was because he didn't see any blacks in soap operas or literature I responded to it in the following way.
Shocked? Strange! The existence of Afro Latinos has been common knowledge for centuries. BTW: I watched Venezuelan Soap Operas while living in New York, and black Venezuelans where always present. They are also present on Puerto Rican TV programs and soap operas and literature. Cubans living in Cuba give great cultural importance to their black heritage.
Of course there are Latin American countries where Mestizos predominate, such as Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru Chile and Mexico. So it's not surprising that their TV programs reflect that predominance. In Argentina the predominance is of European people. So that's what you see in their TV shows and movies. Uruguay and Paraguay are also predominantly Mestizo and European.
BTW If indeed black Latinos are being discriminated as harshly as you describe, then why aren't they marching, protesting constantly, rioting and burning down cities as they are doing the USA in response to injustices? They seem very contented in comparison. Strange!

Radrook Admin: Yes, sooner or later this entire website will disappear with everything posted on it for lack of finding someone to take over when I croak. But it won't be because you folks are refusing to respond. That I can guarantee.

Radrook Admin: That's one reason why I stopped providing long insights into the chess games I play. It's like speaking to the wall.

Radrook Admin: Funny how I can have approx. 400 people at one point browsing, and not one of them wants to give feedback nor participate in any way manner or form. Not even a simple click with a like.

Radrook Admin: Funny how these discussion forums were all the rage once until Twitter and YouTube and other such discussion venues came along.

Radrook Admin: I wish visitors would say something instead of just reading and leaving in silence. Or at the least, at least have the courtesy to rate the material.

Radrook Admin: Thinking that doctors are beyond criticism no matter what is a cultural trait I do not share.

Radrook Admin: Reporting physician malpractice might save someone else from getting murdered.

Radrook Admin: Funny how nobody believes you when you describe physician malpractice until it happens to them-isn't it.
