All my mean-spirited cynicism aside, Puerto Ricans have had a rich history and harbor a very unique culture. From Africans, the Puerto Ricans have obtained the "bomba and plena", a type of music and dance including percussions and maracas. From the Amerindians, Puerto Ricans have kept many names for their municipalities, food, and other objects. From the Spanish they got the Spanish language, the Catholic religion, among other influences. Francisco Ayerra de Santa María was the first native born poet of Puerto Rico, documenting the history of the island. Cayetano Coll y Toste a celebrated historian and journalist of the island has also gained recognition in the development of Puerto Rican literature. Hell, even George Perez, Marvel and DC comic book artist, is a Puerto Rican.
Don't listen to these morons who spew garbage about Puerto Ricans being gangster or uber sexy people. They're the ones that make us look bad. We're better then the stereotypes.
Not all of us listen to reggaeton and talk with that urban accent. We can speak both spanish and English properly. I just want to say that we are a race that we have a little bit of white, indian and black blood in our veins and that's what makes us so diverse.

Also known as Boricua, Puerto Ricans are amongst the most bangin peeps in the world.
I have a Puerto Rican Flag on my wall, right above my bed.
The Puerto Rican Paradeis in two hours, so don't be late.
Boy, Those puerto ricans sure are friendly.
Puerto Rican is not a race, it's an ethnic background.
The Puerto Rican culture is so spunky and Beautiful.
And no, not all of us like reggaeton and have bad taste in music, a good number of us listen to a variety of music including rock(in fact there's an increasing number of headbangers and alternative types here in the island).
And we don't ALL hate the USA or Americans. Sure some do, mostly the right wingers from the separatist party hate the US but not all us, in fact, a good number of Puerto Ricans would like nothing more than to make Puerto Rico a state of the US but that's not likely to happen any time soon.
