The drastic drop surprised many, and theories abound as the U.S. territory's 3.3 million people begin to reckon with racial identity...

Black men love them some ricans.


I mean I can understand if you couldnt get white women back in the old days, but last time I was in NYC the streets were full of slim waist hairy Italian women. Go there.

Weirdo. :crazy:

Go on over to Bensonhurst and say that out loud on the streets and see what that gets you...I'd love to be a fly on the wall when they chase your arse into the sea. :lol:

You just say crap to say it. Ain't got the common sense the Lord gave a Billygoat. Sometimes it is just better to keep your pietrap shut.
