Why Are There No Black People in Argentina?

THIS IS THE REASON WHY THERE ARE NO BLACK PEOPLE IN ARGENTINA
As I watched the Argentina and Iceland match today and wondered why there were no black players in the Argentinean team when other South American teams had black or biracial players, I remembered a conversation I had last year. It was while I was on a cruise from Florida to the Grand Cayman Islands in the Caribbean.
