    I think they love 'em.
    Especially Italians. Just about every Russian woman I've met has said they like Italian language, culture... men

    And most of them, I guess, have made such impression from Italian movies… :Ы:

    To be fair, it was a pretty strange question; you could equally ask: 'What do Inuit fishermen think of the Welsh?' I doubt that there's a prevailing attitude.
    А если отнять еще одну?

    No group of people hates or loves another group of people. I don't think you will find the answer you are looking for with this question, because one cannot speak for an entire group of people. Perhaps if you were to rephrase your question to "What do you, as a Russian, think of latin people?" you would get a response that you want.

    And I have no idea where you guys got that Italians are Latin, heh.

    You said you know one person can't speak for everyone so why do you keep pushing the question? If the next Russian who answers happens to say he hates Latins and the next one says he likes them, that won't leave you with any more than what you would have if you had some common sense. Any given group of people will have people that like, dislike, and are neutral towards another group of people.

    There aren't exactly that many Latin people in Russia in the first place, so it is a bit hard to have feelings about people you rarely see. There is probably a greater percentage of Asians living in the US than Latinos living in Russia, and how often do you see Asians?

    Why don't YOU tell me what white Americans think of Latin Americans?

    Personally, I don't really care about this race or that race. I must admit, though, I am extremely prejudiced against people who cannot use proper punctuation and spelling in their posts or have broken Caps Lock keys.

    Maybe it would help if you read our posts out loud into a tape recorder and played them back.

    @joysof: Those damn Welsh....grrrr....get all the publicity do ye? I can say one thing for sure, every red-blooded Inuit hates them Welsh with a passion!

    Come on, I'm just being playful. Don't you think more Russians would have answered by now if they had any sort of opinion on it?

    NGel_3, I am Russian and I don't think anything about Latin people (had never given this question a moment's thought until you asked us). I don't think anything about Innuit fishermen or Welsh sheep farmers either. I just don't meet them in my daily life. I don't know anyone Latin or Innuit, or a Welsh farmer (mind you, I do know one girl who happens to be Welsh). This is a pointless discussion, as most people do not think of other groups of people as a whole. I do not think anything about Americans, I can only think something about those few Americans I've met living here in Russia and I think of them as individuals.

    Can I ask you one too, NGel_3? What do you think about Saami dog breeders and Karelian forestry workers as a group?

    SAAMI DOG BREEDERS!??! How dare you mention that name on this board? We of the mixed Karelian-Inuit ancestry have a sworn blood feud against the Saami and Welsh!

    OK let me just add one more thing.

    Well, the concept of 'Latin' is very different in Europe and America.
    In Britain, we think of 'Latins' as those people who live near the Mediterranean - the Spanish, the Portuguese, the Italians etc. Not really the French - we see them as kind of 'half-Latin'
    Now there are of course racial stereotypes that we have for these people but let's leave that aside 'cos you're not interested..

    Then there's the American/ US 'Latino' concept which relates to people (immigrants or not) with roots in central and southern america. I understand that there's a huge and rich cultural complex around this. There's racism, stereotypes, music , language etc.

    Now, FINALLY, on to Russia...
    Russians know bugger all about Latinos. They've heard a few Ricky Martin pop songs but that's about it. Of course there are some who know Western culture intimately (the type who inhabit these boards, for example), but believe me the average guy on the street doesn't have a clue. They're vaguely aware of Mediterranean 'Latin' culture .. but hey I've said enough

    Finally I would mention that if a 'Latino' came to Russia he or she'd generally be very much welcomed, except that depending on their looks they might be hassled in Moscow by the militsia who mistake them for Caucasians

    Now...I just happened to stumble upon this conversation but i'm also a bit curious about this whole topic. I'm Mexican and am studying to become a teacher *wanting to teach in Russia* and well...would I really be harrased? I have light colored skin, brown eyes (although a bit asiatic-looking, almond shaped), and dark brown hair with reddish kind of natural highlights...i'm a bit worried. Do any of you think that I might somewhat be able to blend in? Please please answer!
    Oye chica! De donde eres tu? Porque estas interesada en Russia? Cuales son tus planes? Si quieres mandame un mensaje privado ok? A y otra cosa, no dejes que te desanimen los demas! Se portaron un poco groseros pero no te desesperes ni te frustres ok? Bueno...ahi nos vemos! Hasta pronto!
