As disgusting as this sounds, it seems to be only a minor example of Latin American racism, which so many Latinos I have met deny exists.

I wonder; however, how many of those Puerto Rican boys and girls took their African-American girlfriends and boyfriends home to meet their families over dinner.

From my personal interactions with Latin-American women, here and in Latin-American countries, it is usually the fair skinned ones, like Gwen and the white ones who seem to take more of an open interest in me. The black ones, as a rule, didn't seem to take me too seriously, with the exception of a couple who wanted what was in my pants [wallet] because I'm a gringo.

My great grandfather was a blackman who married by the church a blond blue eyed Spaniard. Yes she was snubbed but that was as bad as it got. Yes some people need to reevaluate their racsist attitudes and there is always room for growth. As to the word trigueno.
Later on when some Blacks in Puerto Rico showed displeasure at being called Black because of internalised insecurities, others began to call them trigueno for fear of offending them.
