More than 10 Million black African slaves were sent to several islands throughout Latin America during the middle passage. There were only 400,000 slaves sent to the United States. The native population was nearly wiped out due to disease and mass murders. The descendants of those black slaves in Latin America have not disappeared. Their faces can be seen on television sets and in movie theaters around the world.

Note: According to the US Census, neither “Hispanic” nor “Latino” refers to a race. Latino/Hispanic is an ethnonym that only denotes the ethnicity of a person, not their actual race.
