Dispelling Certain Erroneous Anti Latino Rumors
Yes, there is racism in Latin America and I myself have been the bitter victim of it just like you from family members.
Black presence in Latin America is kept a secret, you say? In what way? The history of Afro Latinos is taught in Latin American history books and taught to the populations. It is part of their basic education. So how is their presence in Latin America a secret?
Was your Puerto Rican dad an Afro Latino? If so, then you are black on both sides. Also, as a Puerto Rican I heard the term moreno and morena, but it was neer intended and never understood it as a racial slur. Just a description of the person's race. Nothing more. Just as one might say el Chino, for a Chinese, or el Arabe for an Arab. But maybe among the PR's you associated with it was a racial slur? After all, customs sometimes vary from location to location ad from one family to another.
True, the Mexican novelas reflect the unjust and unequal social reality in Mexico which has the European types in socially advantageous scenarios. However, . the Novellas of Venezuela don't follow that social depiction pattern . Neither do the novelas in Puerto Rico. I watched three three types and saw the differences.
About platanos, yes, I did hear my mom saying that Dominicans eat a lot of Platanos. But she never used it aa racist term. Neither did I ever hear any other Puerto Rican making any racist comment about any other Latino nationality. Political criticisms. Yes. But never racial. So I guess our experiences differ in that area.
Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

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.

Radrook Admin: Just restored the History section. Hopefully this one won't disappear like the last one did.
