Just as don't read the New York Times for cultural issues, since let's just say my knowledge of Latin America is beyond newspaper clips.

In fact newspaper clips are just that, news, not actual research.

Having written real academic papers, you interview people in the field, you may or may not use written sources to back you up, you consult with experts. You don't use the news.

Researchers are decently paid, and as noted you can't afford my research fees.
We are talking about Spaniards, who are from Europe, not Latin America. Maybe you can start some research there. Not for anyone else but your yourself, not for any compensation but your own sake.

Even some Cubans and Argentines don't necessarily want to be included in the "Hispanic" label because they don't want to be put in the same category as Puerto Ricans and Mexicans.

People really over estimate the "advantages" of affirmative action these days. Since the Supreme Court became active in blocking it, there are steadily fewer instances where affirmative action significantly helps nonwhites.

So I don't know why some one who is pursuing a "white" identity will want to be classified as Hispanic. As much as people may wish to pretend otherwise to most Americans a Hispanic is a brown person. In fact Melanie Griffith allegedly claimed that she was refused access into a coop by a board who didn't want her "brown Hispanic" husband living in the building. This man being Antonio Banderas, who may be "brown" but is certainly a European.

I have two degrees from two top universities in the US. In short, I don't need to do research for my own sake. If I do research, it's for pay.......

Not sure why either. Anyone who has visited Spain will see the distinction is made between Spaniards and Latin Americans. It's common knowledge that many Spaniards do distance themselves.

That's what they mean by New World Order, the "new world" plantation identity politics gone far & wide & global.

That's how some people still view things they're mind is incarcerated on the plantation. Some are still trying to play the role of massa and some are still in mental chains.

It has been ruled illegal by the Supreme Court. I see no reason why some one from Spain will check "Hispanic" when there are scant advantages to gain.


Maybe blacks and Hispanics now get into college because they deserve to be there? Quotas have been illegal for quite a while.

No need to worry anymore, since 2011, they have made Portuguese their official language in addition to Spanish.

Do you mean that Spaniards are prejudiced against Latin Americans?
