    It’s my perception that many white Hispanics discriminate against black Hispanics in the Latin community, especially in Puerto Rico. Why is this?

    Racism exists in Latin America for the same reason it exists in the United States. Despite the typical American view that all Hispanics are one monolithic group, the reality is that there are Hispanics from every race, religion, and even nationality as in the United States. (for example, there are an estimated 100,000 citizens of Japanese descent living in Peru alone.) Because of this, Latin America has many of the same social issues as the United States including racism.
