To remain correct Hispanic people can be Europid (Caucasoid). I think most Hispanics are in Florida, but not in California (Amerind Mexicans). There's also no "Middle Eastern race", for example search for Emile Lahoud or Ali Larijani - both of whom are obviously Europid, and there are many more which shows why the U.S census bureau question on race is correct according to physical anthropology.

If Dallas goes 60% Hispanic (it's well on its way) and 40% "other", I would not call that diverse...just as if the majority group was white, people wouldn't consider it diverse.

I know that, too. Where in my post did I say either was a race?

You didn't.

You wrote: "white, black, Latino, Asian, south Asian, Middle Eastern".

I suppose you meant "old Americans" with white.

Diversity can of course mean racial as well as cultural although one could argue what is "white culture". WASP?

You assume too much.

I'm white but not a WASP, so try again.

It was a question if you didn't notice.

Anymore; the term 'WASP' is taking on cultural connotations-----it refers to an individual who embraces the Anglo-Saxon rule of law.

IMHO; Colin Powell is a WASP despite being part Black.

So, what's wrong with being a White Anglo-Saxon Protestant? I am, and I'm a good person.

What's the deal? I'm worse than someone who is NOT "WASP"? For what reason?

I think ArizonaBear touched on how there's more to that label than the racial and religious identities. There is a culture that goes along with it, one that a person can embrace or not embrace, regardless of his race and religion. JMO.
