It's pathetic that people in the USA know so little about Latin America. The English speakers, I mean.
Mexico is next door, has a long common border, and has 115 million people. Yet most gringos don't really know the difference between Mexican and Spanish culture. Or Puerto Rican. Or Peruvian. Or whatever.
Damn. With so many Castilian speakers around, I learned it at an early age. Yet the USA is notoriously monolingual. This should change.

uhhhh excuse me...brazilians ARE NOT HISPANIC! ask any of them, they do not claim to be hispanic. They do not speak spanish, they speak portugese.
Hispanic comes from the old term Hispania which referred to the Iberian Peninsula which is composed of Spain and PORTUGAL. So yes, brazilians can be called HISPANIC! Get your history correct.

Cubans are not the same as mexicans, etc. The majority of us are pure spanish-european, unlike mexicans and brazilians, etc. We have a higher literacy rate among many other countries. As well as even with our communist state Cuba is in better condition than many other 3rd world countries. I emphasize that we are not Mexican not even close!!!!!!!!!!
I'm half mexican and half puerto rican. And my mexican side of the family is beautiful...nice tan, big eyes , tall,
And my puerto rican side are all kind of ugly. Just saying cubans and puerto ricans can be ugly.

Tag-Teaming Time?

This thread is just an AA or Anglo American racist, mindless, diatribe designed to elicit an emotional rise via insult and to provide a venue in which other AA or Anglo American racists can participate by submitting their equally mindless racists remarks.

On this forum posing as an ignoramus is considered a virtue.
Wonder what culture encourages that?

We tend to be brainwashed in this country about "Hispanics". Well along with other things as well.

1) Hispanic is NOT a race. But rather an ethnic group created in the USA in the 1960's.
2) Not all the people living in certain Latin American countries are the same race.(ex. white Cubans, black Cubans, Asian Cubans etc.)
3) Latin America is a melting pot. So imagine people saying everyone from the USA was a single race. Because that's basically what we do with everything south of Texas and Miami.

Then we have regional stereotypes. For example whenever a Cuban or Puerto Rican is portrayed on TV 9 times out of 10 they're half black/white. And Mexicans they're always Indian. Both stereotypes are just that. Just stereotypes as the countries within Latin America are diverse places.

I remember there was an actress I forget her name but she was a natural blonde but the producers of her show made her dye her hair black to "appear more Hispanic". So we grow up thinking All Cubans are the same race, Puerto Ricans are the same race, Mexicans are the same race etc.

I've been guilty of this as well. I remember 10 years ago when I was a young teen I went to Mexico on vacation with my family. I remember expecting to see a bunch of Danny Trejo's but I was surprised to actually see white people and even Chinese people. And the same thing happened when I went on vacation to Puerto Rico a few years back. Was expecting to see Rosie Perez's all over the place but was surprised to see mostly Spanish looking people.

In other words you can't believe everything you see on TV. There's a big difference between make believe created by the media and reality. Broaden your horizon's. Travel, make up your own mind on things etc.

If you were really Argentinean you wouldn't say that drivel.
In fact, no real Latino would ever utter that nonsense because all Latinos know it's drivel.

The term Hispanic is the most used term in this regards because that term itself, covers a broad selection of people who happen to speak Spanish &/or have ancestral decedents from The "Americas"(namely but not always mind you). It's hard to guess specifics so we use broad terms. I'm Mexicano with Spanish blood, but you could put me in a room full of Boricuas or Cubanos or Dominicanos and you'd never know the difference...but then again definitions are relevant.
In relation to the human species there are currently only 3 recognized "basic" or "stock" genotypes: Mongoloid, Negr*id & Caucasoid
i dont care what color , what race, or what religion ,or where you come from if you treat me with respect ill do the same . People are people we need to respect all of them and stop being so raciest becouse there different.

The way I understand it:
Hispanic is a culture that speaks Spanish. Hispanics can be of any religion, not solely Roman Catholic as you state.

We are different by culture. Take black Americans and Africans. They (we) share the same blood line, heritage, and origins but by culture we are totally different. The only thing that might bring Africans and blacks together on a common field is history. Can't even say the food or music.

Could this be "Amelia"? I took a guess , so I hope I'm right. Anyways , there is something that I want to let you know , and I'll try to be brief.

Today I received an extremely bizarre PM. Your name came up in it. In it , I was accused of being part of some racist/identity thieving/vicious thread making "crew" which has been harrassing the poster who sent it to me. I am ALLEDGEDLY part of some "crew" which is harrassing this person , making nasty threads about her , and posting under her screen name. Yeah , I know , I was totally like W...T....F??

This "crew" or gang that was mentioned? It consists of........you........me....... Lucifer (isn't he your friend on here from Jacksonville?)......and , get ready for this one..........AISLING !!

I SWEAR TO GOD ON MY GRANDMA'S GRAVE that I was sent this. I just read it about an hour ago. I was also warned about disclosing the sender's name , as she stated she was preparing to take legal action against us if the abuse continued. I don't give a fuck about threats such as that , as I haven't done a DAMN THING , and have no idea what any of this is about. I will tell you that the poster is out of California. I don't think any of this bullshit actually occured , but since your name was dropped , I thought I'd let you know.

This place has gone completely BAT SHIT crazy.
