I don't think "race" matters nearly as much as "culture" .. you can introduce a new race into a population and they can get on fine, assuming they assimilate. You can mix 2 cultures in one population and you may end up with distrust, violence and segregation.
The biggest reason why Hispanics are more often than not targeted in this debate is that they simply don't care about our culture, American culture, it's more of a massive cultural pole shift going on in many states. Whereas Asians increased 43% (never mind Hispanic is white/Asian mix or just Asian in it's self...) and you don't see people on TV complaining about the huge increase in the Asian population. Perhaps it's because we are used to it, Asians have been slowly trickling into the country for over a century now. The cultures of the Asian population, mostly Chinese, Japanese and Korean, are very different than the culture of Hispanics, mostly Mexican .. I think perhaps we Americans actually identify more with the Asian culture, the only real barrier being English, and even if they have a bad accent I rarely meet an Asian immigrant that doesn't speak English. Or a Middle Eastern immigrant that doesn't speak English. But I can go to the store, the gas station, a restaurant and be served by someone who can't speak English at all.
Though I still think there is an institutionalized hatred of Whites specifically as a race, not a culture.

Nice title. Should get you the 'Thread of the Day'.
The only thing that needs to go is the ideology, imho. I'm tired of the constant ethnic self-flaggelation over racial purity/dominance. I wish I could be alive to see this odorous disease completely disappear in a sea of generally great year-round tans.
It's so 16th century.
