Alright, I erred on the Muslim part.
Still Hispanic is not a race, but a culture, and you can be "Hispanicized." Furthermore, Hispanic includes a background from numerous countries. Isn't Asian/European also and ethnicity, but not a race, like Hispanic?
Guys, do some research. If we want to be accurate, Hispanics are neither an ethnicity nor a race (although for practical purposes we sometimes include them as a race category). Neither is being Muslim a race or an ethnicity for that matter.
And while it might not be accurate to call it "racism," there is certainly bigotry against Latinos/Hispanics. This entire thread has becoming an idiotic semantic debate.

- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
