5 guys running around bouncing a ball just to throw it in a hoop. Wow, rocket science. HORSE is fun.

Football is more interesting and car racing beats that.

Yeah, and so many points too, with scores like 88 to 101
I like soccer where an entire game can end tied nil - nil

Are whites just whites? Or are they Italian Americans, Portuguese Americans, German Americans, Serbian Americans, Polish Americans, etc.?

I'm guessing non-player jobs outnumber the player jobs 8-1 in the NBA. If Larry gets his wish, a lot of white folks be out of a job.

Nope. The nba would still exist and many blacks would still play in it but the ones that want to be in the all-black league will be making way less money so it will never get off the ground. Look at the all the black colleges they have but they're all terrible in the sports field even though it's all black.

You are attempting to point out Europeans...fail.
To answer your question, whites are whites. None I know of hyphenate themselves. I don't dwell on my European heritage - I rarely think about it. Those who want to segregate themselves hyphenate.

Who coined the term 'White-Hispanic' when speaking of George Zimmerman?

Actually, the Hispanic thing is a messy sticking point for political correctness. Technically, 'hispanic' isn't actually a race (which is why government forms always have that 'white, non-hispanic' option). Many 'hispanics' consider themselves Caucasians, while others do not. So when the Zimmerman thing came up and the papers/news outlets referred to him as 'White-Hispanic,' they were just being good little media toadies toeing the line of their government overlords.

Plus, it made a lot better press if it was a white guy shooting a black kid who "might have been Barry's son."
