“Hispanic” is a cultural ethnicity based on language, NOT a “race”. Now, my friends growing up who were “Mexican” were actually proud of their Maya INDIAN history, it was closer.
Sorry, but “invented” and “hyphenated” “races”, drive me crazy. My CAUCASIAN friend who emigrated from South Africa is NOT an “African-American”- He’s an American. The recent basketball flap as about an AMERICAN basketball player, who’s parents came from Taiwan, but he was born here, a “natural born citizen”!
Maybe when we do away with phony “race” or “hyphenated” citizenship, and say we ARE “Americans” (United Statesans IS awkward) we might get along better??
