I know not all Caucasians are Americans. I know there's dark skinned French people. My grandfather is from France. He moved to Puerto Rico, got married and had my father. My father was born in PR and identifies with being a Puerto Rican. I was born in PR so I am Puerto Rican. My kids were born in America so they are Americans and they know their Puerto Rican culture.
I'm giving up now. Apparently, I'm stupid and I keep digging my hole deeper and deeper. I'm going to find a ledge now. See you later.
Ok now that I got you guys all riled up let me clarify a few things. I did put a warning and said that it was going to be ignorant...so stop telling me. I already know. Secondly I do know that not all "white" people have the same views as my "friends", they're actually dh's friends. My problem is not with being called Mexican, it's with being called brown. I am not brown. I do not refer to all "white" people as white because white is a fucking color. Just like "black" people are not black they're African American to me. No one is actually black. I refer to "white" people as Americans. If I'm really that curious I would just ask where they parent's are from and then I'll get my answer. Another thing that I do not like is when people say that they are Jewish. That's nice of you to tell me but I didn't ask about your religion...that's a whole other post.
So if you must, go ahead and continue to bash away.
...think that all spanish/hispanic people are Mexican? Do they all call us brown people? I'm Puerto Rican and I'm really light skinned. When I had blonde hair, people who didn't know me didn't know that I was from PR. My husband is Puerto Rican too but he's really dark compared to me. Our kids are in between. Lol. We have friends that are from the south, we live in NYC. When they came to visit us they kept referring to us as brown people. My dh had no problem with. I on the other did. A big problem. So to go back to my question. Do white people think that all Hispanics come from the same country? I do know not all white people think the same.

I cannot speak for the rest of my race, but I do not. I just call them Hispanics.
by AnonymousJanuary 8 at 11:32 AMNope, you can tell a Mexican a mile away, they dress horrible.

Nope, I thought all Hispanic people were Latinos and came from different countries.
