In particular, the conclusion considers the longer history of Puerto Rico in the Southern U.S. racial imaginary complicate recent studies that depict Latinidad as a new phenomenon in the region. Finally, the chapter also briefly ponders why race continues to matter in Puerto Rico for different state actors and activists given the failure of economic and colonial policies that have left the island facing one of its largest economic crises in history.
