It's nationally advantageous for the dominant US socioracial factions.
The US is obsessed with the idea of a "white" and "black" national mindset.
Mestizos haven't the sociopolitical clout of black America is all.
Mestizos prefer to be labeled white rather than Mestizo.
Mestizos are culturally, politically "co-opted" by powerful socioracial factions into silence.
Sometimes I think we're alone. Sometimes I think we're not. In either case, the thought is staggering. ~ R. Buckminster Fuller
I don't care what you think about race. Not out of some biased sense but because there are actual scientific classifications on race. You don't have to "like how they sound". I don't care if you do or not frankly, they are what they are.
If your husband is mixed race then so what? There's no "white race". Arabs have white skin. You don't consider them European though do you? Of course not, neither do they. There is no such thing as white. You're either European, Chinese, Amerindian, African, Japanese or some other race or a mix of races. There is no "white race", there is no "yellow, brown, orange or Hispanic" race either, as much as maybe you'd like there to be, there isn't.
Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?
