May 12th 2011 2:50PM Not sure if this has been clarified, but he doesn't say he looks like a "full-blown" or, as the translation implies, "purely" Cuban. A "puro" in Spanish is a cigar, so in this case, he is referring to, yes, his coloration. "He looks like a Cuban cigar. When his hair turns white, he'll look like an extinguished cigar".
There are still very few Afro-Mexicans (something which isn't changing, demographically), and this is a Mexican show, not a "Latin American show" Univision is primarily a Mexican channel and caters to a Mexican audience.
As for Mexican/Latinos being racist, living in LA, I can tell you that Blacks have been just as racist to Latinos/Mexicans. The demographic shift to Latino, primarily Mexican, in South LA (South Central) is the primary cause of the tension, with the African American population feeling pushed out of what have been "traditionally Black" neighborhoods. Goes both ways, folks. Just my two cents, probably won't be back to this thread.
