    Almost no black characters on Telemundo or Univision.

    Do the participants with the Caribbean accents on El Corte del Pueblo count?

        I think that the Spanish language program in the US with the most black participation may be on Fox.  

        Fox Deportes, that is; when they show the Serie del Caribe baseball games.

        Yesterday, I think that the Spanish language program with the 2nd greatest amount of black participation was on.  (Mexican soccer, with its numerous Colombia and Central American imports.)

      about 30% of Colombians are black (3rd largest black population in the New World) yet they are invisible. There are some people of color on the news on  Telemundo and Univision but that about it. Now granted 70% of Latin Americans in the US are Central Americans, but most black characters continue to be the help, athletes, or reformed criminals.

      -1.63/ -1.49 "Speaking truth to power" (with snark of course)!
