That comes back to the different Latino ethnic groups have differing relationships with Black people the few Blacks in Mexico and Central America minus Belize and Panama compared to the expeireinces of Caribbean and South American Latinos that are more dominate the eastern US. When Latinos started to live close to Blacks in the aftermath of the Simpson Mazzoli amnesty there became social conflict over jobs and with Blacks fleeing their home because of their boys own gangs eventually housing and political power

Blacks and Latinos, for the most part, live in the same areas, hence the reason why it's not uncommon to see couples. I'm Black, and a good number of people in my family have dated/are with Latinos.

He says that those are not counted because the census considers them white. Is this true? I don't even know if a Hispanic/white person would be considered mixed. The only mixes that I can tell are mixed are Asian/white and black/white people.

The only reason I am bringing this up is because we are having our first child and this topic came up. I hope it is not offensive to anyone.
#1. Your question is offensive.

#2. It should be of no concern of yours how someone defines theirself ethnically.

#3. People need to stop using the term race it is an outmoded social construct with no scientific basis.

#4. Live your life as you wish and don't worry about what other people think.

#5. Nobody looks twice at multi ethnic people.

#6. Raise your kid to see people as human beings and not racial categories.

#7. From the context of your question I doubt you can do that because you see people as races and not as human beings.

#8. You posting this question means you're a racist.

I'm sure the OP meant no harm. I think you're taking this too seriously.

I think you and I see things differently because of a generational bias. When Blacks and Latinos started living in close proximity is when the percentage of Blacks in the city started dropping. I see more Black/Asian mixtures since I grew up with interment camp returnees staying when the White folk fled.

1. Blatino is the most common
Then

2. White/Asian
3. Black/White
4. White/Latin

By White/Latin, I mean a real Hispanic living in a Hispanic neighborhood and a person of European descent mixing. That is pretty rare. But a lot of Hispanics have European blood, though the ones in LA definitely skew more native.

Did you leave your safe space today? You are having a lot of micro aggressions.

As far as Hispanics with non-hispanic whites it mostly involves Hispanics that look white so you would never really know unless they told you their last names. On a side note I do find asian/white and hispanic/white mixes the prettiest as I find black mixes retain very noticeable black features like hair texture which I find unappealing. When you see a non-black wonen with a black biracial child you would assume she adopted it as there is absolutely no resemblance to mother.
Yet another troll.
