One thing no one points out, "hispanic" is an ethnicity, not a race. Hispanics like Marco Rubio and Senator-elect Ted Cruz look white, are white. Half of all hispanics in this country, approximately 25,000,000 identify as "white" on the Census. Ethnic or racial identity, is based on how an individual chooses to identify themselves on the Census. A whole lot of "white" mothers with "white" hispanic children identify their children as "hispanic" on Census. Asian mothers married to "white" men, identify their very "white" children as Asian on the Census. I cannot understand how these very "white" "white" so called hispanics, about 25,000,000 can claim to be a minority.
