    Am I supposed to read your mind? You typed "negro." So now you're backtracking.

    This probably makes me eligible for that 'La Raza' movement, too. Ya'll get outta my country
    And I was born in the USA, which makes me a native American. Moreover, anthropologists tell us that the human race evolved in Africa, and I'm human, so I'm also African. That makes me a Native African American.

    [QUOTE=Ryan5;1063434783]

    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........

    I did answer in a perfectly cogent manner. Sorry your "gotcha" question didn't have quite the kick you'd hoped.

    Dehumanization is something we need to stay vigilant against.
