I remember seeing somewhere that Latinos are encouraged to register as White & Native American.

I wonder what Half Latinos and Half Whites register as? Hispanic? White?

Virtually all Latinos (80%) are majority white. The only ones who don't agree are the hard core Chicanos and the Right wing fanatics - both those groups insist the Hispanics are 80% Indian.

And; how would White Hispanics who are members of the gang Blood and Honor Chile be counted?

That is a Neo-Nazi organization-------which likely would murder 'brown' Hispanics for laughs.

That is a damn good flashy website. But that is just surprising. A Latin American country with a Neo-Nazi organization. How about that?

Chile's ethnic structure can be classified as 30% white, 5% Native American and 65% predominantly white mestizos
Their German immigration is fairly small.. I believe Mexico's german immigration was larger than that of Chile's, and you don't see Neo-Nazi' organizations in Mexico

Remember too after WW II many of the German Nazi's fled to Chile and especially Argentina.

And; Spain's Francisco Franco was backed by Hitler and Mussolini during the 1936-39 civil war in that country. Franco was a Fascist which was basically a Nazi Lite.

So, yes there has been a significant totalitarian presence through most of Latin American/Spain------with strong White supremacist overtones.

As for Neo-Nazi groups in Mexico; probably little 'need', that country is White supremacist already so the 'morenitos' (little brown ones) stay in their socially assigned place SOB. Pretty disgusting that a Mestizo or especially an indigenous Mexican national has more de facto rights here in the USA illegally than back home as a citizen.
