Most folks making a claim of special privilege for hispanics really don't know their history since EVERYBODY born in the USA was born in a part of NA which was subject to the authority of the KIng of Spain.
While employed by the federal government I regularly put in appeals of my categorization when the boss would send in a form every year saying I was something else.
They'd ignore it.
One law suit by someone demanding privileges and being denied those privileges where Hispanic status is at issue would seem to be ripe.
I always laughed at the native born (”white”) South Africans who would try to claim being an “African-American” here in the US. Drove the HR folks nutz. LOL
