    you might want to read what defines the caucasian race - light skin does not cut it for qualifications. Those men look like they are the result of vast generations of mixed racial mating.

    No, especially to that last. Yes, where Brazilians largely will claim at least one white European ancestor when asked, a large chunk of that is Portuguese. When asked they self-identify as "Brazilian", the culture being so ancestrally diverse.

    A tell tale sign of someone who is purely caucasian is a narrow face, narrow nose.

    A flat broad nose and round face would indicate that somewhere along the line interracial mating took place. Thinner lips are also typically Caucasian - any physicalities that where benefecial in extreme cold climates & high altitudes.

    Re: Will America ever acknowledge Mestizos or continue to push the White/Black dichot

    People in the USA are only concerned about whether someone is Hispanic (AKA Latino) or not. We define someone as Hispanic or Latino if they, or their ancestors, are from a Spanish speaking American nation. (Portuguese speaking Brazilians are close enough.) It is reasonable that we lump together Hispanics by nationality, rather than by color or race, because color or race does not tell us much about the person, while their nationality is more relevant as a indicator of their language and culture. Even when color/race is an indication of language or culture, most residents of the USA do not have the knowledge to know that some people with certain physical features have a specific culture or language that is distinct from the dominant Hispanic culture or language.

    The last one doesn't look white sorry. You know I can just as easily point out darks skinned people from each country you are apparently posting pics of.

    America has more Mestizos than African Americans now yet one would never know this through American media. You will never hear the word Mestizo in the US. Ever. This is even more odd when you start to realize that A 2012 study published by the Journal of Human Genetics found that the majority of the current Mexican population (~93%) is mixed race to some degree, counting the Mexican population of the US.

    Why is this? Why do we constantly read about black and white America in our media but never mestizo America?

    Is this intentional? Is this cultural? Is this sociocultural conspiracy? The media? Is this lack of care about said Mestizo population compared to the black, white populations? Is this simply that Mestizos are thrown into a black, white categorization based on their skin color and that's why? Do Americans just not focus on Mestizos enough to care to even acknowledge their existence? Is it simply that Mestizos haven't built up the clout yet of black America?

    I find this "erasing" of Mestizos from all facets of American conscious fascinating either way. I mean really, you never hear "A Mestizo man, a black man and a white man were arrested today." Why not?




    I never heard of the term Mestizo although by what you said I assumed it was a person of mixed parentage. I looked in Wester's 21st Century Dictionary and it defined Mestizo as Hispano-Indian. So I went to another dictionary, abet older and it said The offspring of a Spaniard or Portuguese and an American Indian.

    Now I can see Brazil having a bunch, a Portuguese Colony or Mexico and Central America, Spanish Colonies. So you think there are more than 13% of this offshoot, Mestizo in the United States?
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
