Hispanic ain't a race. Argentina has many white Jews and the'd be "Hispanic" in the US.

I'm def Ok with using the words "illegal alien". I also say "legal alien" for a NON US citizne living in the US with proper papers.

Colored or Negro ain't gonna cut it. Black is just fine. But you already knew that.

I don't see what's so hard about that. Surely you don't call blacks colored or Negro in their presence, so there's really no need to be contrarian about known etiquette.
Uh "person of color" is now Ok for some "Black" people. You're right that "Negro" ain't Ok in 2013.

I dont know. Eduardo Saverin is a Brazilian Jew and while it is only a movie, I think most people that saw Social Network would identify him as Jewish, not necessarily hispanic. Considering he joined the jewish fraternity, and hung out with other jews, his country of origin became secondary.

BTW, I say illegal alien too. I dont know why anyone who is not one would have a problem with it.

Yes but it is only the weak, and the gullable, that fall as the prey. Democrats and we all know this as truth, love to use emotion and love to use scare tactics as well, and their is no guidling light where the democrats are concern, or they would mind their p's and q''s and let people make their own choice in life, without the big hullabaloo.

They are a bunch of hullabloo, and even my democratic friends are now tired of the nonesense. They honestly and sincerely are, tired of the bull, and the tactics they use, in which to get their nonesnese across. I see it as this, only the weak, have got to put others down who do not agree with them, or else, they may succumb to the truth. Gosh forbid in life you have your own mind, but it is a mind that disagrees with the whacko status quo, they put you down, and throw you to the wolves, that is not how democracy is suppose to work.

Where politicians are cocnern, there is no right way or right party, because not a one of them truly cares for the middle class.

Call me a 'negro', I'm fine with it.

However, don't expect it to get you anywhere. I'm good regardless, it's in the rules.
