    Again I repeat my question - exactly who do you mean by white?
    According to the Census Mexicans are White.
    Blacks only account for 20% of the population, so why are we having these meaningless Black vrs White arguments when we are talking about immigration?

    A white person is anyone for whom the majority of the ancestry is European, who considers themselves "white" and is considered by most other whites to be "white."

    I realize the government lists Arabs and Mexicans as "white." We could call O.J. "white", too, and it wouldn't change the fact.

    Another definition: anyone kept out of affirmative action on grounds they're "white"!

    We could also ask,

    "Who's black?"

    "Who's Hispanic?"

    "Who's Jewish"?

    But the NAACP, La Raza and ADL are not troubled by these questions.

    Whites are the ones who don't qualify for Affrimative Action.

    My parents are both of Northern European descent. My father was 100% Swedish and my mother was 100% Irish. They were both third generation. They married and I was born in Minneapolis MN.

    I'm Native American.

    Whenever I want to know who is White I can always consult with my local Brownshirts.

    They keep track of this issue far more than I do.

    They're experts in this kind of issue.

    AHA!!!

    So race is not only a biological concept but also a cultural, psychological one.

    Well... the biological component of the terms race, caucasian, white, etc... is real but the "cultural" part is bullshit.

    Example:

    Saeb Erakat (palestinian negotiator) is a white person no matter how many times people in Europe and the US call him an "arab".

    Erakat's ETHNICITY is arab but his RACE is white, he's clearly a caucasian individual.

    This is an actual conversation between the posters High_Gravity and Foxfyre:

    HG: "I traveled throughout New Mexico and most people I saw there were whites."

    Foxfyre: "Most of the "whites" you saw here were in fact hispanics."

    HG: "Oh, no, sorry!! I didn't see that many whites in NM!! (just kidding here... Gravity didn't say that.)"

    :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    You can't make this shit up!!

    Hint for High_Gravity:

    You "thought" those Mexicans/Hispanics were whites because that's what they were!!!!

    "WHITE PEOPLE BORN IN LATIN AMERICA OR IN THE US WITH HISPANIC SURNAMES!!"

    When will the american people flush this garbage down the toilet? The idea that whites are not whites just because they or their ancestors happened to be born south of the Rio Grande?
