Again, this adds to my theory that the majority of posters here never leave a selection of barrios in the center of the city and do not see the real Argentina. You've never heard "Negro de Mierda" or similar and have never seen a black person here. I am not trying to be offensive, I just find that quite amazing.Personally, I have never seen an African negro in Argentina. What the locals call negros de mierda are those with mixed native blood.
Negro (not the mierda) has become synonymous with "villero". Those who live in a villa Miseria are all negros, by definition.
Perhaps I do move in enlightened circles - must be my good luck. Hope it holds.
Please ready my post again, this time with an open mind: I did not say I "never heard "Negro de Mierda"" - I SAID it's been a long while since I heard it. Perhaps because I socialize with the masses, and they don't refer to each other that way. In fact, my own extended family has two branches which would qualify as "negros" - definitely not European looking. And there's a Negrito among my cousins.Again, this adds to my theory that the majority of posters here never leave a selection of barrios in the center of the city and do not see the real Argentina.

Yes. this is pretty funny. The "negros de mierda" is pretty alive and well around where i happen to travel. And.......really....the "argentinidad" that you may find appealing and a reason to even be here in the first place is totally lost on these immigrants...wouldn't you say? You don't have to say it in public, but think about it.It's been quite a while since I heard anyone say "negros de mierda". My ancient aunts may do it - they are awesome ladies, firmly entrenched in their 1940s prejudices. But most of us have accepted that a large part of Argentina is peopled by "negros". That includes practically all labor leaders, and most Peronist politicians. The "negros' (de mierda or not) are here to stay - get used to it. Argentina is now a true Latin American country.
Let me add that today, many negros de mierda no longer "live in poor neighborhoods". They now own luxury homes in Puerto Madero, posh gated communities, or in Martinez's most exclusive neighborhoods.
It's a Brave New World.
"At first, the ARG gov't had appointed Luis Bellando, a career diplomat, who was quickly rejected because he was a divorced person. Faced with that situation and on the eve of a diplomatic visit by President Fernández to the Vatican, the appointment of Silva was made at the end of January 2020. Her appointment was accepted in early February 2020.
