  • It depends, if your grandparents were Asians but gave birth to your parents in Puerto Rico, then no, they're Asians and therefore, you're Asian too (this is just an example).
    It's not about where you're born, but about your ancestry, your genes.

  • Through ethnicity, yes. It's your blood. However, you are born as an American. This means nothing though, since you're not American by blood, unless your parents are and just had you there. ... To make it short and a lot less confusing, yes you are.

  • Depends on if they were Puerto Rican or if they were some other race just born there.
    Yes you are whatever your lineage is. If my grandparents were born in Italy then I'm Italian even though I was born in America
