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.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
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[COLOR=#252525][FONT=sans-serif] 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?
In this country at one time, there were three racial categories listed on the census, white, black and mulatto. Mulatto covered any mixed race person whether they were Indian and white, black and white or a combination of all three, Mestizo is not an American term, but was used by the Spaniards to define mostly Indian/Spanish mixed people, The Canadians use Metis which is recognized by the government as mixed native american and French ancestry..
[B]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
The category of Mulatto was eventually eliminated, and all mulattos became black........
