I meant to type Hispanic. But I feel you though. Thanks for the info.

Take it easy

Anybody that looks at me and doesn't see my "Spain" heritage is obviously blind. I got a family tree traced all the way back to the canary islands, where the Mendoza family was noble, than we migrated to Cuba and became farmers.
If that's the case I don't think that everyone was referring to you. It's great that you can trace your blood back like that. I need to dig deep to find people that can even know where to begin. If you're Hispanic and that's that you Rep, do it to death.

Take it easy

Because we do not know which country or tribe we come from.

One symptom of genocide.

A lot of blacks label themselves similarly. Ethiopia is like land of the blacks I think. Something like that.

peace

in this day and age, it appears a very large portion of us latinos are of mixed heritage. Also, it must be noted that "white" refers to Spanish (spaniard) ancestry, which most likely has Moorish influence.

Belize is 48.7 % Mestizo (AmerIndian & White)

Bolvia has 30% Mestizo

Brazil is 38% mixed black and white

Cuba - 51 % Mulatto (black & white mix )

Dominican Republic 73 % mixed black and white

Ecuador is 65% Mestizo

El Salvador 90% Mestizo

Guatemala is 55% Mestizo

Honduras is 90% Mestizo

Mexico is 60% Mestizo

Nicaragua is 69% Mestizo

Panama is 70% Mestizo

Makes you wonder why there aren't more Mestizos in the USA, here its 75% white.


PEACE

I've read that there are over 800 Arabic words in the Spanish language...

Definitely a product of the Moors.

not surprised about the arabic being apparent in spanish..

i also learnt that... many of the poor spanish people who assiated in maintaining the ships etc.. doin the dirty work.. were muslim spanish people.. who were oppressed by the christian rulers..

so many of the spanish influences in americas of ordinary spaniards are islamic..

ill get an article of this soon.

Some Arabic proper names among Hispanics are: Medina (last name), Omar, Ismael, and Ibrahim. I knew a Yemeni kat from my local bodega I caught him reading El Diaro. (a Spanish Newspaper here in Now Why)

Teckinikel - You sound like a Spaniard whose family moved to South America, that means you would have alot more Spanish in you than South Americans.

Spaniards don't look like south americans. Even the people in my family who are dark resemble Arabs, not latinos. And besides that we are often not really dark.

As for this bullshit about "latinos" having spanish blood - Phillipinos are probably more Spanish and we don't change their names.

My family look nothing like south americans, act nothing like them, are culturally nothing like them. They share a language because of some nasty history - that's it.

As for the Muslim thing....I am pretty sure that my family is probably Morrocan in origin. I don't know about a muslim influence in south america though.

I heard that the dark people down south aren't liked by the rich people up north or something....

Also by the time of the expiditions to South America Islam was banned. They were conquering souls for the Roman Catholic God, So I doubt Spanish Muslims were very open about their practices.
