    even though he's also Hispanic.

    So I'm curious to know why Zimmerman can't be white....even though he's also Hispanic.

    Because able-bodied, straight, male white people aren't a protected political identity group.

    So when posters on this forum insist that Zimmerman isn't white it's because they want to classify him as a protected political group?

    Why does it have to matter what race he is or isn't?

    Why the fuck can't we all just go with one label.... 'American'?

    Probably not.

    It's because the media and the leftist political class are going out of their way to make the shooting about race, rather than merely a terrible tragedy....A hispanic shooting a black doesn't sell newspapers, draw viewership to tabloid cable programs, and play into the hands of race hustling rabble rousers like Sharpton and Jackson....I believe that is the point that the aforementioned posers are trying to make.

    Who the hell insisted he wasn't white?

    We've only been over this subject forwards, backwards and sideways. Hispanic is a culture/ethnicity.

    Races are:
    White, black, Asian, Pacific Islander, Alaskan Native, Native American.

    Hispanics can be any/all of those races...but is still Hispanic. Because Hispanic references the culture and language. Not the race.

    This isn't rocket science.

    Race and ethnicy are thought of as the same in America, hence the question " what is your race or ethnicity"?

    This was the first time I can remember anyone being refered to as a white hispanic.

    I can't help that.

    It's a federal distinction, if you've applied for foodstamps, there are separate boxes for "race" and "ethnicity". Race is the above listed races....ethnicity is just hispanic or non-hispanic. You don't pick one or the other, you answer both.
