There is a big problem to teach about Colombia ethnic groups because the Census of the year 2005 only had in mind to minority ethnic groups as Africans, Gypsies and native Americans, so it never had in mind the Colombian population of Arab descent and other ethnic groups, but in reality Colombia has a large population of Arab descent especially on the Caribbean coast. There are at least 2 million Colombians with Arab ancestry. There are also many Colombians of European descent who were not taken into account during the Census.
Actually Colombia received much European immigration, Colombia was actually the focus of Spanish and Basque immigration during the 16th and 17th centuries. Colombia received an important community of Italians during the 20th century. Barranquilla in addition received much European immigration.

Colombia does have a significant amount of people with Arab descent. P.S don't listen to that Lorena troll, for some reason they like frequently bash Colombians on here.

Most Colombians look white?? Lmao! Most look indian and black and maybe just a touch of European. Whites makeup only 5% of Colombian. Typical Colombian loser trying to claim all white. Why do Colombians desperately want to be white??
