I've found conservatives and whites much more willing to recognize that I'm Hispanic that I have been able to from liberals and blacks who've seen me as "white" and try to give me all the baggage that comes with it. Much more, the identity of "white hispanic" that seems to exist solely to try and mix both that I see come from a liberal perspective. To me, it's a sorry ass excuse to call hispanics white socially but hispanics when its time to take diversity census's.

The categorization of Hispanics is kind of an interesting concept to me. For whatever reason it was decided Hispanic was a label of heritage as opposed to other categories that were a label for race, but the problem is there is no label for race for Latin Americans or South Americans because of it. It’s the same way we seem to label Middle Easterners as Caucasian - they’re clearly distinct in appearance, culture, regional origins, and ethnicity, but we still categorize them this way. 

How we define and judge race in this country is absurd in a lot of ways. I still get a little bothered by categorizing “black” and “white” as it is, because neither adequately describe a persons actual ancestry. People who we define as black and white literally come from every corner of the world. Same with anything which groups an entire continent together. But that’s almost always what we do. People complain when Native American tribes are not recognized as individual cultures but we do this with every culture. We categorize them based strictly on appearance, which is not only very Western-centric but doesn’t even recognize the cultures within our own country that are derived from peoples’ heritages. 

The Hispanic label is one of the strangest examples, since it basically means someone who is Hispanic must self-identify as a separate race, none of which adequately define a Latin American or South American. You basically have to be Spanish (or biracial) to have a direct link to any of the races to choose from. But aside from the root language, Latin and South America are both very far removed from Spain, to linking them all together through that common heritage is about as foolish as having all Americans identify as British or all Canadians as French. 

But, that’s just my little rant on the subject. Either we need to diversify how we measure diversity in this country (what a novel concept there…) or we at least need to revise it so it isn’t as limiting and so we aren’t feeding into this continuing concept of “black vs. white”, putting people who don’t fall on either side of the color spectrum in positions like what you described.

Hispanic isn’t meant to be a race though! It’s an ethnicity. Latin Americas that are considered Hispanic are called so because of their shared history of colonization with Spain. Spain influenced those countries longer than Britain did America. Additionally, the effects of Spain on Latin America are far stronger than those of Britain in the US.

I find a common trait of radical-anythings is that they often refuse to be wrong. Ever. It's just one of the many reasons that being a radical is *probably* a bad call. I could be wrong, though.

Very wise observation, Mrs. Crowley.

I recall the debate between Bill Nye (the science guy) and the head of the department of Christian Science or some such.

Point is the mediator asks “What would change your mind.”

The christian scientist says “nothing”

Bill Nye says  ”Evidence.” 

That is the sign of a wise man, or woman, or whatever.

… with different degrees of struggles that we’re implemented by the pale skin via conquests using weapons such as warfare, religion indoctrination, and oppression. And then after pale skin set systems like this into our society, they go around and say things like “We are all human” and confuse “racism” with “prejudice” so that they can keep the system the same way for many years to come.

Shots fired.

More like you morons completely forget your ancestors did the same damn shit and then try to change the definition of words to exempt yourself from criticism. 

Yes because PoC have set up a system where People of Color have ~poc privilege~, don’t confuse “racism” and “prejudice”.

Actually yes they have.

Well look at that.

The weirdest thing about all of this stuff is they seem to think prejudice is fine. Diet racism. Racism lite. Skim racism.

This is how racist Tumblr is.
Not only do they have such an Americanized view of history and the world but they apply it to everything, where the world thing ever in the world was the white people claiming First Nation’s land and enslaving Africans (and yes, those are awful things, but other nations have done similar).
Not only that, they act like if you aren’t white, you were fucking helpless little lambs for all of history, incapable of evil, brutality or violence.  They’re treating entire ethnic groups like children, free of responsibility because of their skin color.  Only white people are apparently ‘worthy’ enough respect to be judged by their actions.
