There is no block to check for black Hispanic vs. white Hispanic, it's just Hispanic.

None on a government form? Sure. In biology? Yes there is. Dude - most Hispanic people know there are white and black Hispanics. I know we live in a world where we're supposed to pretend people are whatever they say they are, but there are black Cubans and white people living in Mexico. What if a black couple moves from the US to Cuba? Are their children not black? I get it. I get it. If we find a one-celled organism on FUCKING MARS it's life but a 24-week-developed fetus isn't life, I get that's the BATSHIT CRAZY pretend world we live in, but for fuck sakes, there are different races in the Hispanic population.

Again I ask you - tell me why it's different for Hispanics than any other group? Why are there blacks, whites and Asians in every country except Hispanic countries? In fact, don't tell me. Because I'm out of this conversation. You're just flat out wrong.

Lighten up Francis. There is in fact a difference between people of African descent and people of Spanish descent.

We don't but a lot of them do. Actually, I'm not sure if it's that or they simply think they are neither.

Honestly, who gives a shit. If they want to think whatever they are, who am I to argue with them.

Of course, we know who started this crock of racial shit.

Agreed, thank you.

You do sometimes hear about very dark-skinned African-Americans being viewed differently by their lighter-skinned counterparts, and vice versa. But they're still all considered black, regardless of the level of blackness.

If that his how they see themselves, ok. Many people, usually athletes, from the Caribbean or Latin America don't see themselves that way. I guess it depends who has authority to assign race roles. Again, who cares how others see themselves or how we see them.

Again, look at who brought us down this rat hole and look at his motivations and his body of work.

My post wasn't intended to take JA's or any side in this discussion. I simply am saying I had never considered it, which may be admitting a sort of "white privilege."

Who am I, the whitest guy in the room, to tell someone else what race they are?

This is exactly my point, with or without the adjectival colorization.

Panzy.
