What a joke!!!, you try to keep portraying what a hispanic should look like, but that's an impossibilty, they could be white, predomintly white, predominantly native american and all shades in between, now lets ponder
what an american should look like: black,like our commander in chief?? native american like Geronimo, white like Timothy McVeigh.
In many countries abroad people honestly think that the majority of people in the US are black, because that's what they see on TV- our athletes, entertainers, etc. are mostly black. So lets not fool ourselves
we are not the only ignorants.......:smack :

Jesus Christ was played by a European White, and the multi-talented Dustin Hoffman played a retarded guy.

In western movies, Indians spoke native dialects when meeting with whites...then went home, where they spoke English. Mexican bandidos always 'giggled' as they robbed travelers...then apologized profusely as they rode away. Strangely, though bullets must have been expensive, these bandidos never shot their victims.... instead they shot randomly into the AIR as they rode away....what a waste. And no matter how hard they rode, they ALWAYS had time for a "fiesta" at night (and someone ALWAYS just happened to have a guitar handy....even in the wilderness).

Cowboys in the movies NEVER went into a saloon without having a fistfight. And even when they broke all the furniture up, and threw each other through the window, nobody EVER got a concussion, and the broken tables and chairs were ALWAYS replaced immediately.

Evil Roman emporers in movies ALWAYS spoke with a cold, sneering British accent. They NEVER sounded Italian.

With all the dishonesty that goes on in Hollywood, it seems to me that a "Mexican actor playing a Frenchman or Italian" is about the LEAST of our worries..

I still don't see what your point is, our commander in chief is anglo-american and phenotypically black, ours is a multi-cultural, bilingual society, we just need to get used to it.

I suggest you get over it: the reality is that Obama is a WASP culturally-----------despite not being all White. Anymore, a 'WASP' can be of any race/ethnicity in my eyes. It, like 'Hispanic' is little more than a cultural label.

As for the bilingual part: that is showing classic signs of dying out with the growing anti illegal alien sentiment------------most of whom are Latino. It is time for the 'hired help' to go home.

Assimilate or be left behind!

Obama's wife would punch you in the face if you called him a WASP...

I think you're confusing "Wasp" with "madder than a Hornet"...two different insects....

Regardless, Obama is not in anyway culturally W.A.S.P. What about him culturally makes him white anglo saxon protestant?

He doesn't live in the "Black House", does he?......nor "la Casa Blanca".....that's proof enough for me....

Seriously (assuming there even IS such a culture as "WASP", which I doubt) what, in YOUR opinion, would define its members? How is one a WASP, or not? And exactly where is the line drawn? What do WASPS eat? What are their core values? Can you name a WASP restaurant, and if so, would you dine there? Name a WASP holiday. Do you know any half-WASPS?...if so, do they still 'act WASP'?

Is that how white people justified voting for him?

He is not culturally W.A.S.P....he was raised in many multi cultural settings...He went to a Muslim school in Indonesia. Calling Obama W.A.S.P is like calling Bill Richardson WASP...which I think that AZ Bear did at one time. Had to remind him that time that Richardson was raised in Mexico City...

You're right, of course....how embarassing of me. Since, as you've pointed out, we have an Indonesian Muslim for a president, and a Mexican as a State Governor, how can we possibly have a problem with 20 million people living here illegally?

Thanks for pointing out the connection. There's lots to learn here, and I'm going to get busy...
