    They SAY that.
    I don't think they're being very truthful.

    How about... because he IS Hispanic ONLY.

    Why do so many people have a problem with calling a Hispanic, Hispanic?

    You ever had to fill out a survey or something and noticed the two boxes that say "White-not hispanic, Hispanic-not white" or something to that effect?

    Which do you think he'd mark? He can't mark White nh, because he is Hispanic. His only choice could be Hispanic-NW.

    They do have bi-racial but Hispanic isn't a race.

    In your avatar - why is your mouth open, as if in the "receive" position?

    Do tell, what is it that you're hoping to receive in that orifice??

    Hispanic is a race now?

    How about German?


    How about grow a brain?

    It's not a race, but hispanics normally identify themselves and are thought of as hispanic or Latino, In terms of race, but technichaly you're right.

    How is it so many wanted to quickly identify him as white and the 'victim' black, and claim it was not about race??
