Obviously, there is a culture and an ascribed ethnicity to being Hispanic/Latino but I'm talking strictly about race here. For example, I think of my ethnicity as Mexican American but I think of my race as mixed(Native and White European). Hispanic can also include those with African ancestors as seen in Cubans and Dominicans. There's also those that are pure native blood that some still consider Hispanic, but that's kind of a grey area...well,this all is but you know.


Do you guys out there think of yourselves as mixed racially or do you consider yourselves a third unique race?

Both of my parents are Brazilian, however if I was to trace back some generations then I will find that my ancestors are from Angola and Italy.
What would I be?

Hispanics are definitely a mixed race. There are latinos who look white, latinos who look asian, and latinos who look black. Scientifically there are only 3 race classes: Caucasoid (white), Negroid (black), and Mongoloid (asian). Hispanics are all a mix of Mongoloid (because asians crossed the Bering Strait and settled in North and South America ie Native Americans, Mayans, Incas, etc) and another depending on region.

I don't know man. Brazil isn't generally considered a Hispanic country because it was a Portuguese conquest instead of a Spanish one. Other people would disagree though. Had a sociology professor claim he was Hispanic based on Portuguese heritage.

It's vague as fuck who is and who isn't Latino or Hispanic. Ex: there are people like you who have ancestry from places other than Spain but there family has lived in Mexico for generations. If they came over to the United States people would consider them "White Hispanic". That means that it's more of a cultural thing than a racial one.

However, you could also have a Hispanic family adopt an Anglo kid, raise them as their own from infancy. The kid learns Spanish and all of the other cultural markers but would they be Hispanic?

When I worked at KFC, I asked all of my 20-30-year-old Hispanic coworkers why they worked there and why they wouldn't get an education and pursue better opportunities. Their response was, "because I'm Mexican." -_-

Spaniards are Hispanic though, and they might not be mixed.

Unless the distinction "Latino" implies mixed race and Hispanic doesn't?

Yeah nationality and race get blurred a lot. My friend's friend looks white as fuck. No one would guess he was mexican if he didn't tell you. He obviously have more european genes than other mexicans. Also, no one really has the exact same gene mix even in the same family. Some family members will get recessive european genes that make them look more white than their siblings.

^ That's my family to a tee. My mom is more mixed, but my dad's family comes from a region of Mexico that saw a lot less interbreeding than most parts. No one can tell he's Hispanic or really anyone from his side of the family by looking at them. I have uncles with green and blue eyes.

Yeah I had a friend claim he was Hispanic and he was Portuguese. Some might state that Spain and Portugal are the parents of Latin America so Portugal has the exception of being Hispanic?

This is me. When I ask people to guess my nationality these are the most common ones I get:
[LIST]
[*]Lebanese
[*]Turkish
[*]Greek
[*]Italian
[/LIST]

And my siblings are fairly darker than I am and have hints of 'Negroid' from our Angolan great grandparents, but I came out European looking.

I'm Puerto Rican. I see myself as mixed. I look more italian than anything else, but my moms looks pure white...my dad looks like he's from sri lanka, my grandfather looks like a mullato black dude, my grandmother looks chinese, I have two cousins that look irish (no BS, green eyes, red hair, freckles) and uncle that looks straight black, another that looks arab....So I see myself as a mix of everything.
