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.
also it means that your pictures don't prove anything other than, yes there are caucasian hespanics and latins. But there are also black hespaniscs - and other races as well. Many are mixed with different races primarily native, white, and african.
Wrong. He only gave them 4 choices and did not accept that first guy when he himself answered Hispanic.However due to American cultural influence they are instead choosing white or Hispanic, both of which are not races.
No, you don't. My point is pretty clear... white isn't a race but you used a video that tried to claim that white is a race indicating the video is crap.No, white is not a race (holy god I have to say that lol?). European is a race in general terms. White is a complexion. An Arab can be white but not European, and a European white but not Arab. You understand?
Do YOU understand?
European is NOT A race. Caucasian is a race. Asian is a race. Ultimately though, race is irrelevant. We are all humans (homo sapiens) that have varying skin colors and physical make-up due to geographic isolation or location.European is a race in general terms. White is a complexion. An Arab can be white but not European, and a European white but not Arab. You understand?
I'd say, from living in the South West US all my life, that yes, probably 75% at least, maybe higher, of Central American and or South American US citizens calling themselves Hispanic are in fact dark or not dark skinned Amerindians and or Mestizo mixes of Amerindian, Spanish and or other European ethnicity.
It's interesting though because for instance, and I assumed it would happen and sure enough it did in this thread, a good percentage of South America has heavy European immigrant populations that skew Euro in their racial percentage, if not outright pure Euro, as in some of the previous pics from Brazil. So you end up with this clash of societal views of what is actually true in the US.
South American Euro posters will come in and start screaming about how "Hispanic means white!" when they don't realize that here in the US every single dark skinned Amerindian, mestizo mix is calling themselves Hispanic. The South American Euros do not understand that in America Hispanic is not associated with "Caucasian" as it is in South America.
