Oh, yeah! It was about damn time someone said the truth! I agree with Lobito Triste on this one folks. The Americans have a huge misconception about Puerto Ricans. They think we are like Fat Joe, or Jlo and those Newyorkricans. Puertoricans are a nice breed of people that are way more different than those ppl you see on the streets saying stuff like YO! WhAD UP DAWG? In order to understand what a puertorican is you must visit the island or meet people that actually came from the island. There's a difference between newyorkricans and Puerto Ricans (newyorkricans is how people from the island call those puerto ricans that were born and raised on the U.S. regardless of where they are) And like Lobito Triste said there are is an increasing number of Headbangers and skaters on the island. (It's rare to find that kind of puertoricans on the U.S. and I happen to be one of them thank you very much.)

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.
Not all Puerto Ricans are ghetto, that's exactly what gives the puerto ricans such a bad name. :D

A person born in the island of Puerto Rico. Puerto Ricans born in the island on or after January 13, 1941 are born US citizens. Those born before that date but on or after April 11, 1899 were granted US citizenship by the Jones-Shafrat Act of 1917.

Many people who were not born in the island, feel or consider themselves Puerto Ricans because one or both of their parents were born there.

I happen to be Puerto Rican myself and I've noticed that there seems to be a lot of misconceptions about us. We're not all stupid dirty cacos like some dumbass hick would have you believe and some of us actually have real goals and lead honest lives instead of selling drugs and living off welfare.

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.

An island smaller than Rhode Island but with the ability to produce incredibly good looking people :) and PLEASE do not judge them for what a "newyorican" do or acts like. Meet a real one before making your decision.
such as small island can produce 5 miss universe (currently) while as big as the US is they only have 7. That should tell you something about puerto rican women
