This paradox shows the complexity of the Puerto Rican society and the contradictions surrounding its identity. It also opens the door for many more questions tied to different types of oppression, not only related to race but also to gender and social class.
So, I decided that in order for me to understand better the Puerto Rican identity and subsequently my own, I should try to look deeper into what it means to be an Afro-Puerto Rican.
This is the beginning of a long-term project.
