I'm Hispanic, born and raised in Puerto Rico... Go Boricuas!!! (That's what we call ourselves: Puertorricans or Boricuas.) The native indians that lived in our island before the Spanish colonization named our island Borinquen or Boriquén so that's why we proudly call ourselves "Boricuas". So in terms of our ethnicity,we can say that we're mixed becuase we all have Taino (indian), Spanish and African (slaves brought by the Spanish) blood in us. It's pretty cool!!! That's why in Puerto Rico we all look so different. You can find blond, blue eyed puertorricans as well as black, slightly tanned or even ones with indian features. Nice!!

Oops, Ok, I'll stop with my history lesson now, hehe. Got a little carried away... Sorry!! :D

People ask me if I'm Spanish, but once I tell them my heritage, they go "OMG, you are a complete typical Italian." I guess I got more of the Italian side, although the two are pretty similar as far as physical features.


Oh, yes. I'm full Italian and I get asked if I'm Spanish all the time!

I am SO BAD at working out what country people are from (or their family is from) by their appearance.

I can basically tell what continent they're from - but I mix that up too. :?

Black/White aka "Mulatto".

Somewhere in my family I KNOW I have Indian, but never interested in finding out what kind. I'm nothing special, but I luv me!

And I live in Florida.
