Fat Joe sparked a discussion after he paid homage to Black people's influence on music and Latinx culture.

Last week, the "Lean Back" rapper discussed race in Latin America during an interview with Hot 97's Ebro Darden. Joe argued Africa's influence is prominent in Latinx music.

"All the music is African," he stated. "Brazilian music, Dominican music, Spanish drums, but you right even in Puerto Rico when you go to the Caribbean."

In Joe's eyes, all Latinx people are Black.

"Alright, let's speak about Latinos not being Black," he continued. "Latinos are Black. In Cuba, at one time, there was eight million Cubans. Five million, unfortunately, were slaves. Three million were actual Cubans, and they integrated and had babies."

The Terror Squad OG also brought religion into the conversation.

"Same thing with Puerto Rico when you go to Loíza. You talk about Santeria, that came from the Motherland Africa," he said. "Sometimes, Latinos might even identify themselves with African and Black culture more than Black people. This ain't no crazy thing. Fat Joe ain't on crack. He know what he talking about."

Joey's opinion sparked a debate about Latinx people and race.

Many agreed with his views.

 Others weren't feeling it.

Pose star Indya Moore recently told Remezcla they don't identify as Afro-Latino although they are of Puerto Rican and Dominican descent.

"I think we definitely need to come to a place where the African diaspora needs to understand that the African diaspora is the African diaspora," Moore explained. "Black Latinos don't necessarily have the same experience as Latinos who are not Black. I, personally, do not identify as Latino because Latino means Latin and Latin, it means white. And I'm not white, so I just call myself Afro-Taíno 'cause that's what I am."

Moore wants everyone to know the "boat stops" during slavery "were harmful to everyone." They want Latinx media and pop culture to reflect the diversity of the diaspora.

"When I watch Telemundo, yes, I'm here for Spanish content," they said. "But I just see only white Spanish people on Telemundo. I don't really see Black Hispanic people because Black people are also Hispanic. I think Intersectional inclusivity is important because inclusivity affirms that you belong, and I think that's something we should be pushing for in the media that we create, in all forms. For Afro-Taínos, for everybody. Everybody that's marginalized."
