Exactly how is being called the country your from a race? I know it's easy to insert Mexican in , but it's still not a "race". Are Canadians a race? Americans? British?

Now if you used something like "damn Spaniards", it would be racist. Just because they're from Mexico doesn't mean their a race.

*insert ensuing "plane on a treadmill" type debate here*

I thought the Baja 1000 was a race, and being Mexican an ethnicity? But then again what the **** do I know... I'm just the social scientist in the room.

Do some of you people go looking for reasons to get your panties in a wad?

Speaking of panties in a wad ... stop posting threads to these places that force you to have an account, I don't want to sign up just to see what you are talking about. At least cut and paste the relevant parts.

FAIL!

Hispanic is an ethnicity. Black and White are races. You can have Hispanic Blacks (e.g. Many Puerto Ricans and Mexicans) and Hispanic Whites (e.g. Many Cubans, Chileans, and Argentineans)

From Wiki:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Hispanic


Hispanicity, which is independent of race, is the only ethnic category, as opposed to racial category, which is officially collated by the U.S. Census Bureau. The distinction made by government agencies for those within the population of any official race category, including "White American", is between those who report Hispanic ethnic backgrounds and all others who do not. In the case of White Americans, these two groups are respectively termed "White Hispanics" and "non-Hispanic Whites", the former being those who report ancestry from the people of Spain or Spanish-speaking Latin America, and the latter consisting of an ethnically diverse collection of all others who are classified as White Americans that do not report Hispanic ethnic backgrounds.

wow, that might be one thing from WIKI i don't agree with at all. Saying 'Hispanic black' for people from Mexico and Puerto Rico , yet 'Hispanic-White is "being those who report ancestry from the people of Spain or Spanish-speaking Latin America"? Then where did the Hispanic Blacks come from? Hawaii? What other Spanish origin is there other than Spain?

Hispanic is an ethnicity.. but if you are from Mexico are you not still a Mexican? I guess the correct term would be Hispanic American just like Asian American or African american
