I don’t really know about the racial makeup, but what I’m finding is that many come from systems where colorism (light skin/dark skin) are in effect, so they’ve simply immigrated here and instituted the same racist attitudes and castes systems they used in their homelands. After researching how racist some Latin American countries and Spanish speaking territories are, I have lowered my expectation that they’ll come here and get on the right side of history. They come here and act as another oppressor, on the backs of Blacks. I just shake my head. One day, America is going to teach them who they are too. They always do.
