Rasism in Argentina

And by the first quarter of the XX century they were pretty much non existent......apparently Spaniards and early argentines sure knew how to eradicate certain races from the territory, i often wonder if this had something to do with the sympathy of members of certain European country seeking refuge here in the late 1940s
We have the wars against the Spanish Crown between 1810 abd 1816. San Martin came back from Peru after defeating and annihilated the royal army with only 80 grenadiers.
After that we hace 44 years of civil wars alike the sengoku period of Japan. Later we had the was with Paraguay and the yellow fever. It is true that President Sarmiento was super racist. According to him the gaucho who was Spaniard, Indian and black, should be exterminated.
By the time the immigration was open about 1880, the local population was very low. The “argentine” race, according to the local nazis, is a “superior” blend of Spaniard, jude, indian and black.
So, this is why there are almost no african argentines. Those who survived were integrated for 200 years, and the african gens in argentines is the evidence of that.

I see black people all the time. On the subte. On the street selling sunglasses. Walking down the street.
Right, but those are not Argentines. You can tell immediately by the accent. Actual Afro-Argentines with actual Argentine heritage (or at least accents) - down in Buenos Aires, I'm not sure I've ever met one.

All true but what you see in the streets are: Mulatos, Tercerones, Quarterones, etc all Afro descendants have blended with the European, and natives..! according to the Ministry of Culture report.

The Apartheid here began in 1949. Whoever has old argentine blood has indian and african gens. While in North America they made first a genocide of natives and later an Apartheid of Africans, here the Spaniards marry them.

Being An afro descendant woman in Argentina today.. ! read below her statement


"For more than 500 years that men and women of African origin inhabit the territory that is now Argentina (read the note The Afro Origin of Argentina). During the nineteenth century Argentina was intended as a white and homogeneous nation creating the myth of the disappearance of the Afro-descendant population product of wars and yellow fever. But the children of the slaves and the various migrations that began in 1920 are on the streets, in the towns, in the cities of the country . Today the organized Afro women who raise their voices, to eradicate the racial violence that survives since the time of the colony, and to make visible and combat the ethnic, economic and social inequalities, which are growing and oppressing women of African descent."

The Greatest contribution of the Spaniards to Latin America was the Genes, creating a mestizo race , Cortes married all his soldiers to Indian women, Same thing en Virreinato del Rio de La Plata. In addition to the Law, the Religion, the City Planning, the Language , and the Culture.
The Brits never mixed (officially) with the natives in Australia, S. Africa, India, USA, Canada, etc

Why are we talking past instead of present and future? No one gives a rat's ass about what happened a lifetime ago. It's a luxury we can't afford.
In the here and now, blacks are welcome.

A defensive pistol instructor in the US once told me "stop demonizing the Black guy. They likely stand out in your area and you are more likely to get hit by a space station fragment than mugged by a black man.
Beware of the ones that have been screwing you your whole life. The ones that lie, cheat, steal, backstab you, etc. are the ones closest to you. bf/gf, husband, wife, friends, boss, coworkers, etc. Get the picture?"

I'd venture that in modern/contemporary Argentina, the issue is not race related but social class determined.
NdM applies to anyone below you in the collective imaginary.
Those (poor enough but) with jobs use it to describe the unemployed, even when living in the exact same location, as well as those with the highest income apply it to any midlevel subordinate.
