Mexican is always Hispanic. Not all Hispanics are Mexicans, but all Mexicans are Hispanic. You asked what makes a Mexican a Mexican....being from Mexico makes a Mexican a Mexican.

How would that work? People from Latin America - "Hispanic/Latino" people, come from literally every race on Earth. How can you have a "race" that comes from every race?

Please tell me. What edge do you get?

No misrepresentation - the owners are all white. The players who make them the most money are the ones who play. If any owner thought they needed to get more players from Asia (such as Yao Ming) or anywhere else, they would go out and get 'em. The best players are the ones who are playing. Sports is our society's only meritocracy, at least in terms of race.

How do you determine who is qualified and who is not?

What basis do you have for making this statement?
Actually, Brazil has the highest number of Japanese outside of Japan and there are Chinese all over the Caribbean, Central America and even in South American countries. A lot of people do not know that that the US is not the only country in this hemisphere that got immigrants from all over the world and these countries still get immigrants from all over the world. For instance, many people do not know that there are quite a few Lebanese in Colombia, Brazil and Venezuela, as well as the Caribbean. Some have even become presidents of said countries. I met a girl who's parents come from a Lebanese/Syrian background, but she and her parents were born in the Caribbean(She was from Trinidad, to be specific).

Taino Indians are considered Nattve Americans. Also, All Mexicans are Hispanic, but, not all Hispanics are Mexican. All Hispanics are Latins because the Spanish language comes from Latin. Hispanics is a term given to all Latinos by a Texas Gov. who thought it was okay to lump all people conquered by the Spanish has Hispanic.
