Race and Racism

Postby John » Wed Jul 10, 2019 7:48 am

This is a place to discuss race and racism.

Although the posts will be about race and racism, they should not be racist.

Racist posts may be deleted.

How to read it: for all U.S. inhabitants that are 1 years old, about 65% of them are white alone

Actually those numbers are skewed due to how people are counted in that analysis. Hispanics, Jews, Turks, Persians and Arabs are considered white for census purposes by the government in it's the "race alone" questionnaire. However They are Non-European and not actually considered white even though the official numbers include them. The actual Numbers are about 40 to 45 percent white. Popular opinion defines "white" as being of "European descent", thus the above groups previously mentioned are usually not included.


Remember George Zimmerman, the "White Hispanic"

How did you insert an image into this stone age comment section? I have 2 from the 1940 and 2010 census that will make a key point.

I get into this argument all the time with college students that don't understand race.

White = European

Caucasian = European, plus North Africans, Arabs, Turks, Iranians, Armenians, etc.

Hispanic = being from Spanish-speaking country. HISPANIC IS NOT A RACE. You can be any race you want and be Hispanic. You can be 100% white, 100% black, or 100% Native American and be Hispanic. If you are white/Native, you are mestizo. I would also argue that you could be from Portugal or Brazil and be Hispanic, since the word "Hispanic" comes from the Roman Province "Hispania," which contained the entire Iberian peninsula.

So yes, it IS possible to be a white Hispanic (although you are correct, I had never heard of that term before George Zimmerman).
