    Default South Americans

    We don't often talk about the white people in South America. We should ! It's sort of a giant SouthAfrica with still millions of white but many blacks, mestizos threatening.

    I did some research on wikipedia about all the countries there with a signifincant white population :

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Latin_American




    Country % local Population
    (millions)
    Brazil 49.7 or 53.7[7] 93 or 105
    Argentina 97[22] 39
    Mexico 9[23] or ~16[9] 9.6 or 18
    Colombia 20[24] or 25[1] 8.9 or 11.2
    Cuba 65.1[10] 7.3
    Venezuela 20[11] 5.6
    Chile 30[12] or 52.7[13] 5.1 or 8.8
    Peru 15[25] 4.3
    Costa Rica 85[14] 3.8[14]
    Puerto Rico 80.5[26] 3.1
    Uruguay 88[27] 3
    Dominican Republic 16[28] 1.5
    Bolivia 15[29] 1.4
    Ecuador 10.4[15] 1.4
    Paraguay 20[13] 1.3
    Nicaragua 17[30] 1
    About 200 millions. Which is still almost the entire white population in the United States.
    It's never too early to start beefing up your obituary.

    The definition of 'White" is different in Latin America. An octoroon (1/8 Negro) or Castizo (1/4 Amerindian) could be considered White in Latin America.


    Rafael Correa, president of Ecuador, considered White in Latin America.



    Augusto Pinochet, the White guy who use to rule Chile.

    There was a great poster on Skadi who was from Argentina. I forget his username now.

    How did I ever forget. There is also the greatest metal band to walk this blessed Earth that came from Brasil.

    You are thinking of Mazorquero. His avatar was of Juan Manuel de Rosas, who looks like an Englishman.

    Argentina has a high percentage of Europeans. Also Uruguay & parts of Southern Brazil. But many Brazilian Whites have significant Amerindian &/or Negroe admixture. And Whites in the Andean countries have a high degree of Amerindian admixture.

    Due to historical reasons it's true in Latin America the concept of race is much more blurred than in USA , a concept where also USA is heading , but still there's a lot of whites over there and many of them are racially conscious thou too many times richness and whiteness overlap and are mistaken each other , in short it happens whites are almost always the richest and they tend to live among themselves i.e. whites but also ligh skinned mestizios and semi-whites as well.

    I doubt that data since the U.S. absorbs nearly 80% of all European immigration to the Americas, look it contradictory.

    Very true. The Latin American definition of "white" typically includes light-skinned people with Amerindian and African ancestry. The one-drop rule has never existed in that region the way it did in the USA.*
    Plus the Spanish and Portuguese settlers brought fewer women, so they often had intermarry with indigenous women. The places where self-identified Europeans or whites make up the biggest majorities are those that experienced mass immigration from Europe after independence (Argentina, Uruguay). Even so, a plurality or small majority of Argentines probably have at least a small amount of Amerindian ancestry (average about 18-19 percent) as single male immigrants married Argentine-born women. (1)

    (1) Seldin et al, Argentine population genetic structure : large variance in Amerindian contribution, American Journal of Physical Anthropology, 2007, vol. 132, pp. 455-462

    *In the USA the one-drop rule did not necessarily apply to Amerindians the way it applied to Africans, so it is hard to believe that all white North American claims of distant Amerindian ancestry are apocryphal.
    On the other hand, compared even to Argentina (one of the 2 "whitest" Latin American countries) a significantly smaller percentage of white Americans have Amerindian ancestors (these are typically old-stock Americans in the south and west, or people of French Canadian origin). I don't know of any studies on this topic though.

    South America has been nothing but a struggle between colonists and natives. It's an excellent example of the failure that we call multiculturalism.
    Due to my heterosexual toxicity, I only do female classifications upon request.

    Default South Americans

    If there's a South Amerika pictures thread, i don't saw it. And we are strongly represent on this forum. Since we are interesting culturaly and racialy, i'll begin posting Brazilian pictures. I don't find a regional forum, so, i'll post it in this area. If I'm doing something wrong please warn me.
