    Puerto Rico (pronounced /ˌpwɛrtə ˈriːkoʊ/ or /ˌpɔrtə ˈriːkoʊ/), officially the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (Spanish: "Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico" literally Associated Free State of Puerto Rico), is a self-governing unincorporated territory of the United States located in the northeastern Caribbean, east of the Dominican Republic and west of the Virgin Islands. Puerto Rico is composed of an archipelago that includes the main island of Puerto Rico and a number of smaller islands, the largest of which are Vieques, Culebra, and Mona. The main island of Puerto Rico is the smallest by land area and second smallest by population among the four Greater Antilles, which also include Cuba, Hispaniola, and Jamaica.
    Puerto Ricans often call the island Borinquen, from Borikn, its indigenous Tano name.[4][5] The terms boricua and borincano derive from Borikn and Borinquen respectively, and are commonly used to identify someone of Puerto Rican heritage. The island is also popularly known as "La Isla del Encanto", which translated means "The Island of Enchantment."

    Yeah that's because we're a multiracial people, although I don't generally see a lot of Indian traits pop up (which makes sense given our Taino ancestry is greatly diluted and Mongolid traits are recessive anyway). In my experience people here tend to range from white to quad to mulatto, leaning somewhat to the white side.

    If its greatly diluted then you can be certain that the influence is appreciable within the general population.

    Not if the admixture is too low to appear on the phenotype. Genetic studies have found the Amerind contribution to Puerto Rican genotype to be somewhere between 5 and 17%, if I'm not mistaken, which is pretty low.

    I read the PR census and it says that PR is 80% White, 8% black, 12% mulatto. What are the real %. Since you are from Puerto Rico. What would be the real percentages?

    I would say 45% quadroon, 30% white (including castizo), 15% mestizo or mulatto, 8% black and 2% other.

    We actually are one of the whitest countries in Latin America. By autosomals we're whiter than Chileans, although that doesn't show because our non-white ancestry is mostly African (dominant against the Caucasoid genotype), and theirs is entirely Amerind (recessive against the white genotype).
