“Mexican” is not a race!

I guess France was just being racist when Germany invaded France?

Actually, “hispanic” is not a race.

To wit: I have seen this on “voluntary” race forms for human resources: Persons of Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Central or South American, or other Spanish culture or origin, regardless of race.

Since its official adoption in 1997, the definition and usage of the term by the Federal Government is strictly as an ethnic, as opposed to racial, identifier, used together with the term Hispanic.

So pretty much, if you have a Spanish sounding surname, or can’t say more than “no habla English,” you are considered “hispanic” and bundled off to a bilingual ed course to ensure that you never do learn English.
