Rareviews go inside the lives of those in America whose stories we don't always hear.
Imagine growing up and to have your family, friends, neighbors, community look at you as the other - maybe because of the color of your skin or the texture of your hair - even though you saw yourself as one of them.
What if you then tried to identify with someone who looked like you - someone who shared your ancestry - but they said you didn't belong to their community either?
That's the experience for some Afro-Latinos, who said they grew up knowing they belonged to both the black and Latino communities, even if others disagreed.
The 2010 Census showed that among 50.5 million Latinos living in the United States, almost 27 million identify as white and just 1.2 million identify as black. Three million said they identify as two or more races.
These three black Latinos said they often felt forced to choose one side or the other.
