From Merriam Webster
Definition of Hispanic

1 f or relating to the people, speech, or culture of Spain or of Spain and Portugal
2 f, relating to, or being a person of Latin American descent living in the U.S.; especially ne of Cuban, Mexican, or Puerto Rican origin

Definition 2 fits the way it is being used here

What don't you understand that "black" is just another word for "Negroid?"
Why was the word Negro commonly used prior to black become more popular? It take a linguist to make the connection between Negroid and Negro?

These white supremacist assholes want to play games with the definitions of terms like 'race' because experts in genomics and sociology are also divided on what the minor morphological distinctions in traits between different groups of humans really mean in the grand scheme of things.

Race is more of a sociological construct than it is anything physical or biological, but as long as people become categorized and discriminated with based on superficial characteristics like skin color and hair texture, then race becomes very real for people trying to go about daily life.

And Hispanic is just another word for Mexican, or Latin. That should help you.

Precisely. Let me translate for the Right. Facts, definitions, and details are only necessary when THEY decide they are necessary---like the word race...but here comes the challenge for the RW.

The number of mixed-race Americans is increasing three times faster than the population of the United States as a whole.
That information comes from the Pew Research Center in Washington, DC.
In the 1970s, one percent of all American children were of mixed race. Now, 10 percent are.

The U.S. Census Bureau predicts that, by 2060, the number of multiracial Americans will be three times larger than it is now. OH DEAR!! What to call "THOSE" people now?? They aren't exactly black OR white OR BROWN OR pink OR GREEN--eeeh gads!!

What to do?? What to do!!

What we have as 'Mexican' food in this country is mainly Tex-Mex.
Sorry, not in Cali.
Not in Western Colorado, either.

And a cold Corona on a hot Mexican beach is hard to beat.
