    But the same applies with Hispanics. Some are white, black, or come from various, different countries.

    Hispanics are an ethnicity, and so are Muslims. You would have to hold Muslim to the exact same standard as Hispanic, and you would have to treat both as races.

    No. Holy ****. Muslim is a religious term. Muslims are made up of many different ethnicities. Those ethnicities are made up of different races.

    Being Hispanic is an ethnicity. Being Muslim is not an ethnicity.

    Re: Racism against Hispanics?

    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?

    Hispanic is an ethnicity. You can be racist towards ethnicities. Do we have it yet?

    what language, do Asians speak?

    what language, do Europeans speak?

    Hispanic is a culture, partially due to its common language.

    Just as Jews have a common language, and Arabs have a common language.

    Re: Racism against Hispanics?

    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.

    Nobody 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.

    Spot on!

    It doesn't really matter if you call it "racism", "ethnic prejudice", "chauvinism" or "xenophobia" -- when the sentiments behind it are the same as in case of racism, it doesn't matter how you call it, it's just as bad.
