    Hispanics are not white according to our country. yes thousands of them pretend to be white by filling out the census as white but they really are not. If that is the case the border debates would not exist. Yes hispanics with more white features can get away with blending into white society but they still are not considered white by society.

I''m not even sure dude is of spanish descent but alot of spanish muthafuckas look at themselves as white men in AmeriKKKa, so they do 🤬 like this to prove to white people that they are "different than the rest of the minorities".

    And while i think they need to allow more legal immigrants from latin america these illegal immigrants are killing black folk too. people who soley think white folks is the only people racist trying to 🤬 black folk are erroneously misled. Hispanics hate us as well as some arabs too.

    I hear what you're saying but remember 'Hispanic' is not a race. There are Black hispanics, White hispanics, and everything in-betweeen:
    A black Hispanic:

    A white Hispanic:

    I see people still don't understand the difference between Hispanic and Latino. If you come from a country that speaks Spanish, you're HISPANIC. Mexicans are HISPANIC and also LATINO at the same time. Me being Nicaraguan, I'm Hispanic and Latino. Brazilians aren't hispanic since Brazil wasn't conquered by the Spanish they were conquered by the Portuguese, they're latinos.

    Thanks for the knowledge drop.

    For the record Zoe Saldana the first chick is Dominican and Puerto Rican, and Andy Garcia the second dude is Cuban American.

    The terms "Hispanic" or "Latino" refer to persons who trace their origin or descent to Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Spanish speaking Central and South America countries, and other Spanish cultures. Origin can be considered as the heritage, nationality group, lineage, or country of the person or the person's parents or ancestors before their arrival in the United States. People who identify their origin as Hispanic or Latino may be of any race.

    not saying you should trust white people is ignorant (and i dont have to bold that to add a false sense of signifigance. You can name call me all you want but the same brother who is the reason we have the freedoms we have, Dr. King, never judged an entire race of people based off what some people from a race felt and acted on. If you don't learn to give people a chance to earn your trust because of their race you will suffer greatly in this ever global world. In this world its hard to trust many people black white whatever but there are still people you cant trust.

    To keep it real and truthful, Spaniards are Europeans so they are white and Spain is in Europe they were slave traders and conquered Latin America, killed the Latins and The Native Indians of land, 🤬 them, colonize them and taught them a new language and married into their family. What happen with the Black Egyptians happen to the Latin and Native Indians of Latin America.

    Spainards dont have love for the Latins in latin america. Hispanic means you are your family if you latin have the conquer blood in you and mean that you a european from spain

    Hispanic? Latino? Or What?

    By PHILIP B. CORBETT


    Notes from the newsroom on grammar, usage and style.


    The nomination of Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court prompted discussion about our use of “Hispanic,” “Latino” and related terms. It’s not a simple issue, and I consulted with a number of reporters and editors here who offered good counsel.

    Here are some key points to keep in mind:

    • While both “Latino” and “Hispanic” are generally acceptable, some people have a strong preference. We should respect those preferences as much as possible in referring to individuals and groups; reporters and editors should routinely ask.

    • Specific references like “Puerto Rican” or “Mexican-American” or “Guatemalan immigrant” are often best.

    • Judge Sotomayor clearly uses “Latina” for herself, and we should respect that preference whenever feasible. In more detailed references, we can note that her parents moved to New York from Puerto Rico. Once again, remember: they were not immigrants.

    • In describing one distinction she would attain if confirmed, I think we have to say she would be “the first Hispanic justice,” despite her own use of “Latina.” Calling her “the first Latina justice” isn’t quite what we mean, and several people I consulted agreed that calling her “the first Latino justice,” while perhaps grammatically defensible, seems awkward or wrong.

    • I will adjust the current entry in The Times’s stylebook to clarify that “Latina,” like “Latino,” can be used as an adjective as well as a noun. We should be aware, though, that for many English speakers the use of inflected adjectives may still be unfamiliar.

    • As always, references to ethnicity should be used only when they are pertinent, and the pertinence is clear to readers. One reporter pointed out that many second- and third-generation Latinos regard themselves as simply “American” or “Texan” or whatever. If ancestry is relevant, phrases like “a lawyer of Mexican descent” or “a New York native of Puerto Rican descent” might serve.

    • Our stylebook defines “Hispanic” as “descended from a Spanish-speaking land or culture.” But be aware that opinions vary on how broadly to apply these terms. Can “Hispanic immigrants” describe a group that includes Brazilians or other Portuguese speakers? Can “Hispanic” describe immigrants from Spain itself? Once again, being specific will help minimize confusion or ambiguity.

    • We should avoid constructions like “President Obama has nominated Judge Sotomayor to be the first Hispanic justice on the Supreme Court,” or “Judge Sotomayor is hoping to become the first Hispanic justice.” That phrasing suggests that their primary goal is to have a Hispanic justice. We can note the potential distinction parenthetically: “Judge Sotomayor, who would be the court’s first Hispanic justice, …” (Similarly, during the presidential campaign, we tried to avoid phrases like, “Senator Obama is campaigning to become the first African-American president” — that wasn’t the point of his campaign.)

    A brief report from the Pew Hispanic Center offers some interesting background (including more on the Cardozo question). Here’s one section:


    Q. How do Hispanics themselves feel about the labels “Hispanic” and “Latino”?

    A. The labels are not universally embraced by the community that has been labeled. A 2006 survey by the Pew Hispanic Center found that 48% of Latino adults generally describe themselves by their country of origin first; 26% generally use the terms Latino or Hispanic first; and 24% generally call themselves American on first reference. As for a preference between “Hispanic” and “Latino”, a 2008 Center survey found that 36% of respondents prefer the term “Hispanic,” 21% prefer the term “Latino” and the rest have no preference.

    Q. What about Puerto Ricans? Where do they fit in?

    A. Puerto Ricans are U.S. citizens by birth — whether they were born in New York (like Judge Sotomayor) or in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (like her parents). According to the Census, some 97% of all persons born in Puerto Rico and living in the mainland United States consider themselves Hispanics. Overall, Puerto Ricans are the second largest group of Hispanics in the 50 states and District of Columbia — they make up 9% of the mainland Hispanic population, well behind the Mexican-origin share of 64%, but ahead of the 3.5% share of Cubans. In 2007, the 4.1 million persons of Puerto Rican origin living in the mainland United States exceeded Puerto Rico’s population of 3.9 million.
