That is something that MEChA et al will never admit to......the link between Fascism/Nazism and White Hispanic culture.

Did not Latin America invite the fleeing Nazis to come to Latin America to help "whiten" up their populations. I know that Argentina destroyed her black and most of her Native American populations and Brazil tried to do the same though it was much harder to "clean up" a population that at one time was almost 90% black.

Even though I love Brazil I have seldom seen black or indigenous characters on tv except for the stereotypical buffoon roles. I have been in malls in predominatly black neighborhoods where all of the dolls were blue-eyed blondes and even a television commercial featuring a local store featured models that looked Scandinavian when most of the residents of the town looked anything but.

Both Pele and Gisele Bundchen are Brazilians: he is Black and she is Nordic White.

Can anyone say Manuel Noriega ? I'm convinced it has something to do with the geography of the regions and the law of the jungle and tropical climates on the mainland.

Francisco Franco (Spain) was an example of a cryptofascist (Falangist)------remember that Adolf Hitler supported him in the 1930's.

Falangist sounds like something form a Stephen King novel. Thanks for reminding me of that , from what I recently heard at a lecture the Spaniards were amazingly cruel to the SA natives , I seem to recall them feeding their dogs with them in some instances... Interesting way of looking at it all , look at the lands conquered by the Spanish tongue and see what kinds of volatile cultures they foster. Hmm those soccer stadiums are quite the venue .

Frankly; I find it very sad that 'brown' people SoB are NOT perceived as being of the same class as White Hispanics..........many Mestizos/Indians are quite handsome/beautiful.

LOL, guy, have you ever even been to Mexico?

I would like to know that too. So far all I can see is this term being used as a temperature raising keyword that has little to no substance behind it. And there is no sarcasm here, I really would like to know where this came from.
Yac.
