Notes:
Here is a big bomb. What people need to do is to examine the number of people who list themselves as Negro in Central and South American countries. Then cultural shock sets in. Spain imported in its possessions, Negroes by the thousands. Mexico, Peru, Panama, Columbia, and Argentina, all had large Negro populations. Today many of these Negroes have assimilated into the population, and are no longer distinguished as Negroes.
