    15-II WHAT IS "RACE" DISCRIMINATION?

    Title VII prohibits employer actions that discriminate, by motivation or impact, against persons because of race. Title VII does not contain a definition of “race,” nor has the Commission adopted one. For the collection of federal data on race and ethnicity, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has provided the following five racial categories: American Indian or Alaska Native; Asian; Black or African American; Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander; and White; and one ethnicity category, Hispanic or Latino.(12) OMB has made clear that these categories are “social-political constructs . . . and should not be interpreted as being genetic, biological, or anthropological in nature.”(13)

    Were the Hispanics who were chanting USA racists?

    Yes. Correct. It's an ethnicity. Your point being that... what?

    Well then the other team should have joined in the chant, too.

    I think this thing is being blown way out of proportion - it was a bit inapropriate considering that they're all Americans but Beyond that I'm not going to get my panties a twist over what some highschoolers DO.

    Most Hispanics are white.
    It can't be racist.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Please don't be hasty, my friends.

    Definitions in the United States
    The term Hispanic, as dominated by the Office of Management and Budget, is used in the United States for people with origins in Spanish-speaking countries, like Mexico, Costa Rica. Hispanic is not a race, as the Chilean Nobel Prize Gabriela Mistral once said, "mi patria es mi lengua" (My fatherland is my language). Latino, from American Spanish, is used in some cases as an abbreviation for latino americano or "Latin American" and tends to be used interchangeably with Hispanic in the United States, despite the fact these two words are not synonyms. The term "Latin America" was used for the first time in 1861/1867, when the French occupied Mexico and wanted to be included in what has been known until then as "América Española" or "Spanish America". [30]


    "The terms "Hispanic" or "Latino" refer to persons who trace their origin or descent to Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Spanish speaking Central and South America countries, and other Spanish cultures. Origin can be considered as the heritage, nationality group, lineage, or country of the person or the person's parents or ancestors before their arrival in the United States. People who identify their origin as Hispanic or Latino may be of any race."[32]
    The U.S. Office of Management and Budget currently defines "Hispanic or Latino" as "a person of Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin, regardless of race".[33] This definition excludes people of Portuguese origins, such as Portuguese Americans or Brazilian Americans. However, they are included in some government agencies' definitions. For example, the U.S. Department of Transportation defines Hispanic to include, "persons of Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Dominican, Central or South American, or others Spanish or Portuguese culture or origin, regardless of race."
    Hispanic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Hispanicization

    Hispanicization is the process by which a place or a person absorbs characteristics of Hispanic society and culture.[38][39][40] Modern hispanization of a place, namely in the United States, might be illustrated by Spanish-language media and businesses.
    Hispanic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Being Hispanic/Latino is a culture, not a race. Knowing this, how can I be "reading-impaired," or "falling for other people's bull****?"

    My point being that since being Hispanic isn't a race, the people chanting "USA" during a game involving Hispanics cannot in itself be racist.

    This is what happens in a world where "sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me" doesn't exist.
