Hispanic (Spanish: hispano, hispánico; Portuguese: hispânico, hispano, Catalan: hispà, hispànic) is an ethnonym that denotes a relationship to Spain or, in some definitions, to ancient Hispania, which comprised the Iberian Peninsula including the modern states of Andorra, Portugal, and Spain and the British Crown Dependency of Gibraltar, and Morocco (Hispania Ulterior Tingitana).

Today, organizations in the United States use the term to refer to persons with a historical and cultural relationship either with Spain and Portugal or only with Spain, regardless of race. However, in the eyes of the US Census Bureau, Hispanics or Latinos can be of any race, any ancestry, or any country of origin.

By the way Reeder, do you know how Mexicans came into being?

"Wayne, USABorn said Mexicans not Mexican-Americans and it would be Hispanic. USABorn is the bigot."

And Reeder is ignorant! I wasn't speaking of hispanics, but of MEXICANS. You might want to check the definition of hispanic.

His·pan·ic [ hi spánnik ]

1.of people of Spanish descent: relating to people descended from Spanish or Latin American people or their culture

2.of Spanish-speaking people: relating to Spanish-speaking people or their culture

3.of Iberian Peninsula: relating to Spain, or its language, people, or culture

"Makes you the bigot there USABorn."

First of all, since I didn't say anything derogatory about them, you are full of crap!

Secondly, it's no different calling a Mexican a Mexican, than calling an American an American! You are such an idiot. Just another feeble attempt on your part to bring racism into the discussion.

Third, not only do a number of states allow illegals to vote, but the government wants to allow ALL illegals to begin voting. With or without their SHAMNESTY.

Take your pills Reeder, your liberalism is working overtime.

Mexican, Mexican-American... what's the difference? They both think of Mexico first, and your side wants to make sure there's no distinction between them, that they're both permitted to vote, collect welfare, etc.

POST-racial???!!!!

You newly-naturalized Americans need to understand...you can't assume EVERYTHING (that "conservatives" tell you) is true.

We ARE making strides, towards a "post-racial America", but...presently..."conservatives" (typically "White") are overly-sensitive to their fast-approaching "minority"-status.

"Stop with the racist card already, it's worn out!"

Then I suggest you all stop with your racist, bigot remarks. If anyone is wearing it out it is you all.

Chuck,

"Makes you the bigot there USABorn.."

Stop with the racist card already, it's worn out!

By progressive standards, when ethnicity is on any legal form, I would like (no, I demand so I'm not offended) for the provision of Native American/French/Irish/German American.

Christie is arrogant and proud. He is, IMO, a compromiser for the sake of self. Dr. Carson is a Godly, humble servant with a brilliant mind. But, then the first part of his great character will no doubt shatter any dream of getting to first base.

Christie won't run with Paul. Why pick him? he doesn't need him. Christie can peel off some dems. he will lose them with Paul. Stop with the Lincoln analogy. Everyone knows why the 'old republican party" became "the new "democrats" and the dixiecrats became republicans.

You do know that 'Mexicans' can not vote in US elections. Don't you?

Of course they do, especially all those so-called, "Mexican-Americans" who are US citizens!

Ritty77 - What is needed in a President is not someone who understands finance and economics, but someone who understands the limits of their power granted by the Constitution. Congress is where you need those who have an objective understanding of finance and economics and an understanding of the limits of their power granted by the Constitution.

"Mr. Pitts states that the GOP has a legacy of bigotry. Mr. Pitts would do well to familiarize himself with the history behind the party of Lincoln and its role in advancing the rights and freedoms of all Americans"

So for an example of Republicans not being bigoted, the letter writer had to go back 150 years?

"the liberals have been brainwashing minorities since '65."

Blacks and Mexicans have voted primarily democrat for the past four decades, and Mexicans are a huge focus for democrat campaigns. The Immigration act of 65 actually worked hand-in-hand in securing a permanent voter base for the democrat party.

As Obama pushes for yet another amnesty for people who are not interested in sharing our ideals, we have to ask, based on this information, if it wasn’t all part of the plan. If not, it sure turned out to be a beneficial coincidence for the democrat party. What happened is that the same race baiting that we see every day in an effort to get others to feel humiliated or shamed for the purpose of advancing an agenda was used to get th 65 immigration bill passed.

Ted Kennedy and his cronies, the supporters and pushers of the bill did everything in their power to ASSURE us that what we see happening today would NEVER OCCUR AGAIN.
