Look at our culture(American). 15-20 years ago, everybody was Blonde and/or White on TV. It wasn't until recently you started seeing more minorities on television in America.
Just the way it is. White controls the world, White is upheld as the vision of beauty.
And you also hold a very narrow concept of what a Mestizo looks like. Your race-obsessed mind should by now realize that Mestizos come in many different shades. I doubt there aren't a few if more people on those sets that have Indian blood in them. I don't know why you insist on the White supremacy of an entire country based on what they show on television.

And you talk about all of these supposed tensions between groups and the Hispanic community, you are clearly not just talking about illegals.

Sorry, but I'm going with ArizonaBear on this one.

Mexican media is pretty much all Spaniards, or majority Spanish blood. The blondes may be fake (along with the breasts), but you're not seeing a Mayan Indian woman in the lead role, and you're not going to find a guy who looks like the ones cutting grass in the medians of highways in the US on a telenovella.

It's kind of pointless, by the way, to say that "Mestizos come in many different shades." White people and black people come in many different shades too. All that matters is how one is perceived by society, right? Otherwise we'd refer to Barack Obama as "America's first serious mulatto contender for President."

JEFF FREDERICK (R), VIRGINIA GENERAL ASSEMBLY: Well I'm the member -- I'm a one-person member of the Hispanic caucus of the Virginia assembly, the first and only Latino elected to the --

DOBBS: I didn't realize that.

JEFF FREDERICK: In our 400-year history. And the fact is I've never really been associated with these groups. My mother from Colombia, I know a lot of people that are from South America, Latin America, and I don't know anyone who's a member or part of these groups or who participates in these activities.

So, frankly, you know, of all the people that I know, of all the Latinos, you know, from -- from Virginia to Florida and all around, not one of them are involved in these groups. And frankly, these groups just don't speak for the Latino community.

As for non Nordic White actors:

Desi Arnaz (OK, he would be Hispanic today-------50 years ago he counted as White)
Ricardo Montaban (refer to above)
Ida Lupino
Victor Mature
Anette Funicello
Frank Sinatra
Dean Martin

Etc.

As for Blacks: they have come a long ways in just the last 30 years between the end of the Jim Crow laws and that 'race' taking responsibility for itself.
So having whites on tv makes the whole country and people white supremacist?
Thats a heavy term, and you throw it around way too freely.

HAHA, you guys are incredible, Jeff Frederick the self proclaimed one person member of Virginia Assembly's hispanic caucus, on cnn said few people in the legal hispanic community embrace La Raza so that must be the absolute truth.
My point still stands.

I would expect nothing more from you; you're so incredibly predictable. I bet if I looked up the word “intransigent” in the dictionary, your picture would be displayed.

And thanks again, JDubsMom.
