My people get talked about badly through stereotypes cause of the so called NUYORICANS (Puerto Ricans in NY)!!! They lacked almost all cultural traits of those people in the island! Like these stereotypes:
1) We're all Dark (no, we ain't; we are a good of light to dark skinned (or black) skin tones; most of us are tanned or born with dark skin)
2) Stupid (the youth of today pretty much stupid anywhere but Puerto Ricans, most of us are smart; least the ones I've met anyways and are always looking to further their knowledge)
3) Ghetto (Ok, I'll partially give them that xD; most of us are known for being "ghetto" but not all of us; we either grew up in a ghetto neighborhood (or a caserio) or were in prison to be considered ghetto really; that's why they say Puerto Ricans will cut you lol)
4) We don't Speak Spanish (Pura Mentira!!! (Pure Lie!!!! Lol))
5) We're Lazy (Not really, we work hard and always look for any means of income; most like to live rich while being poor so yeah....lol)
I'm sure there's more but those are some of the more common ones.
