    This whole line of reasoning is astounding. For an entire election we heard how bad crooked politicians were, and how we needed a non-politician. Now whenever one of these conservatives does something its a shrug and "meh he's just being a politician". So they were either being completely disingenuous partisan hacks then, or you are now. Which is it?

    people here are actually defending a politician blatantly using a racial slur?

    wait, what?

    let's not go back to George Wallace times. Elected officials get into routine trouble for infidelity, certainly overtly racist remarks qualifies as 'removal from office' worthy? How can you honestly represent even the most gerrymandered district (outside of say 98% white Vermont) while having inherently racist views that you have outwardly expressed?

    It's 2017 ffs

    When I was thinking non-politician it was along the lines of President Neil Degrasse Tyson, and VP Bill Nye.

    I'm not sure if you're joking or not (I suck at detecting sarcasm) but you can look at the CDC's Fatal Injury Report (s) and Hispanic isn't listed as a race.

    I do not define it racially of course, because "Hispanic" IS NOT A RACE.

    Hispanics are a group of people who share a certain common culture and heritage derived from that of Spain, generally by virtue of originating in countries that are former Spanish colonies.

    Since Hispanic people can be on any race, it is entirely possible for a person to be both Hispanic and white. They are two overlapping categories.

    Didn't you learn about sets and Venn diagrams in school?

    [​IMG]

    One circle represents white people, the other circle represents Hispanics, and the people in the red area where they both meet are White Hispanics. Comprendes?

    Of course you are correct. Hispanic is not a race. It is a cultural denomination.

    The point of that post was to clarify that a person can be both Hispanic and white, the same way a person can be Hispanic and black, or Hispanic and Japanese, Hispanic and Naive American, or Hispanic and a a mix of all of the above.

    The insistence of folks in the US in speaking about Hispanics and Latinos as if they were a race is a pet peeve of mine, because it is remarkably ignorant.

    Whats so hard to grasp about this? A white Hispanic is someone whos ethnicity is entirely or largely composed of peoples from Spain.

    Spain is in Europe, Europeans are white ergo.....

    hold on to your pannies for this shocker too

    THERES EVEN BLACK PEOPLE IN HISPANIC COUNTRIES!

    Besides his Spanish surname a google search tells me he is Cuban-American and grew up in Hialeah. I may be stereotyping a bit, but the odds are very good that his parents or grandparents migrated to Miami after the Cuban Revolution.

    That makes him Hispanic.

    Might be stereotyping? White. Grew up in America. So let me ask his then: if he's Cuban what's the issue? Just the white part? That's a difficult spot. When does the white apply and when does the Hispanic
