I know exactly what you mean, in Puerto Rico's year 2000 census, it said that Puerto Rico was 84.2% white (Caucasian) not mestizo or mulato, but flat out pure unmixed white...which is complete bullshit cause they've done DNA studies in several different parts of the island, and the European traces are the smallest except for in a few towns in the west coast...but hey...ah so di ting set...a lot of brown and mixed people in Spanish-speaking countries tend to identify as "white" on the census...as opposed to blacks in the states who even light-skinned ones still identify as Black on the census (usually).

isla grande is another scenic place, near colon, great for fresh seafood and CHEAP. I forgot to mention that in all coastal areas you can get some of the BEST seafood in panama for cheap. Our fried fish is on another level.

Nice!!! What about bacalao guisado? bake and shark? are they common/typical? Would you mind posting some pictures of the local cuisine as far as seafood goes?

Great photos. These are reminding me back in the days of stories of my parents, and relatives going to Panama to shop. Panama seem to have got the right mix of everything.

How's you all's carnaval?

The thing is, the "mejorar la raza" propaganda has really screwed with black people's mentality in Latin countries. Some of them would rather take the easy way out and call themselves Spanish, rather than work in the struggle for the upliftment of our people as a whole. That's one of the reasons why I hate to be referred to as Spaniard/Spanish.

Just different perceptions of so-called race. That's a major reason why Tiguere and SKBai were butting heads so much. Tiguere see more mulato/white and SKBai sees more mulato/black. The problem is with the concept of race itself.

this is one of the few mosques that i know about in the country






This is portobelo, the main settlement for true black panamanians

Contrary to popular belief Portobelo, Panama is not the main area or only area of settlement where "true black Panamanians" live. There are tons of settlements where true black Panamanians have settled and lived since the earliest of colonial times and post emancipation from slavery as well as following being displaced by the Panama Canal project. Colonial blacks are very widespread throughout Panama.
