Solo existen dos civilizaciones en el mundo occidental: la hispanica y la anglosajona. El encuentro de Espana con las gentes y tierras de America fue un acontecimiento que transformo las bases geograficas, revoluciono la alimentacion, indujo cambios demograficos sustanciales y genero un nuevo espacio cultural que se extiende sobre mas de quinientos millones de personas. Los logros mas conocidos de esta Civilizacion Hispanica son el mestizaje y la extension de la lengua espanola y el cristianismo. Tambien el intercambio de nuevos productos y alimentos entre ambas orillas del Atlantico, que mas tarde Espana extenderia al resto del orbe a traves del Pacifico; la implantacion del ganado y del manejo ganadero a caballo; la creacion de formas mestizas de musica, urbanismo, literatura… y, ademas, la conformacion de una identidad hispana, basada en similares caracteres y costumbres. La Leyenda Negra ha destacado los casos de abusos sobre la poblacion nativa y falseado la realidad de Espana en America. Sin rechazar la innegable existencia de esos abusos de manera individual, la postura de Espana fue la que se deduce de las Leyes de Indias, que protegieron al indio a ultranza. A largo plazo, esa realidad llevo al mestizaje biologico y cultural, a la mezcla de costumbres, caracteres, principios y valores que conforman el alma de la Civilizacion Hispanica.


There are only two great civilizations in the Western world: the Hispanic and the Anglo-Saxon. The meeting of Spain with the people and lands of America was an event that transformed the geographical bases, revolutionized food, induced substantial demographic changes, and generated a new cultural space that extends over more than five hundred million people. The best known achievements of this Hispanic Civilization are the interethnic or mestizaje and the extension of the Spanish language and Christianity. Also the exchange of new products and foods between both shores of the Atlantic, that later Spain would extend to the rest of the world through the Pacific; The implantation of livestock and cattle management on horseback; The creation of mestizo forms of music, urbanism, literature ... and, in addition, the conformation of a Hispanic identity, based on similar characters and customs. The Black Legend has highlighted the cases of abuses on the native population and falsified the reality of Spain in America. Without rejecting the undeniable existence of individual abuses, the position of Spain was deduced from the Laws of the Indies, which protected the Indian at all costs. In the long run, this reality led to the biological and cultural fusion , to the mixture of customs, characters, principles and values ??that makes up the soul of the Hispanic Civilization.
