their the same thing
Most Helpful Guy
The literal translation of negro is black, so I don't believe it's the same. Obviously there's a similarity in the word but even if it meant the same it just doesn't have the same weight/context in Latin America as it has in the US, given that the history and background of the words are completely different.
Also, I've been in several Latin American countries and the white vs. black thing is basically non existent since there is so much variety in races and ethnicity. If anything, I did notice latinos have their stigma and towards Asians. I saw a lot of people mocking Asian people and making up stuff about their cultures, super weird.0
