Well I want to say that my father is caucasion and my mother is from El Salvador, I tried reading through this whole thread but after page 7 i said
Now while my mother Does have indian ancestry, I am curious as why hispanics are considered Non-white?
People do realize that south america was Populated by Europeans along with north america right? Are you all not understanding the difference between
ethnicity and race? I mean people have the idea ingraned into their heads just because they don't speak english down south that they are a different
race or mixed race?!?!?
the majority of people in those countries are as mixed as americans are. NE wayz i just wanted to get that out there,and let people think about it.
How bad is the labeling when one caucasion looks at another and marks them as a totally different race just because of the languange and
personally i'm glad i'm mixed, and race shouldn't matter unless you make it matter, growing up I have had white people look at me and tell me i'm
hispanic, and i've had latino's look at me and tell me i'm white
I'm happy that my ethnic identity didn't tell me who I was supposed to be or not to be in life, some people tell me its sad that i don't have a
race that i identify with, but to be honest, As long as i have loving friends and family i'm ALL GOOD! Because it's them i identify with, It's
their accomplishments that give me strength, its my past with them that i look to when i need to remember where i came from.
Whats the big deal anyway?
We all get drunk at parties no matter what race we are
We all dance like idiots when we drink too much
We all drool over a beautiful woman no matter her heritage
And we all get scalded by our girlfriends when we get caught looking at that beautiful girl
