    Because it's been clearly demonstrated to you that you can be racist toward ethnicities and yet you continue this charade.

    Actually they did not. Your perception of what occurred tells you they did.

    They razzed the other team? Maybe. Any person white, green, purple or otherwise will soon realize that life is tough enough and someone shouting USA USA is not a fatal blow. Maybe when they have real problems they will wish for those glory days at high school when they lost the big game and got all upset over nothing.

    we gerrymander school attendance areas just as we gerrymander political districts

    so much for a melting pot. it's actually the un-melding of America

    That's silly: we ended busing in 1999 purely because it was a waste of taxpayer dollars. No one is FORCING them to live 'with eachother' or something. You cannot force people to LIVE in a mixed - race melting pot if they don't want to. where you live is up to you - if you want to live near family that's your business, no one else's.

    So - the real problem is that you see a natural means of existance in which people choose to live and THINK there's something wrong with it.

    You're right. I made an assumption, as I stated in the second post of the thread. It's an educated assumption based on what normally occurs at sporting events and the ethnic/racial makeup of the teams. My assumption, based on those two factors, is much more likely than the assumption that they did not imply that the Hispanics were not American.

    They razzed the other team? Maybe. Any person white, green, purple or otherwise will soon realize that life is tough enough and someone shouting USA USA is not a fatal blow.

    This has nothing to do with what I've said. I see we've gotten to the part of the discussion where you start talking to me as if I've made a bigger issue of this than I have.

    I've already exaplained to you that your Wiki link on Racism and my Wiki link on Hispanic directly contradict eachother. Furthermore, I've included links from our Government census and certain other sites that show Hispanic is an ethnicity, not a race. Furthermore, you seem to think that any ethnicity can be considered a race, such as being Muslim.

    This entire debate is shut down by the fact that race is social construct and people and societies have different boundaries for race. Once upon a time, Germans and Italians were considered separate races. Race is a dynamic word - stop trying to make it static.

    thanks for confirming you are definitely wearing wadded panties


    nothing says the white neighborhood kids all have to go to the same school
    and the black/hispanic children in those other neighborhoods don't have to go together in a different school
    re-draw the lines - gerrymander - to achieve integration of the schools
    then this kind of minor crap would not happen, since the hispanic kids would be attending both schools, and the white kids would, too, instead of their separate but unequal schools
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
