Jury of your peers...... but where are they gonna find 12 white hispanics???
There is no such thing as a white hispanic. You're either hispanic or white, not both. You're only helping further discrimination by spreading that term
I'm a white Hispanic, but I'm also a Texan.
Is obama a white black, then?
Sorry I left off the sarcasm icon.... thought it was obvious. Agree there is no such demographic term except when racially convienent for the MSM.
Or is he a black white?
So all the Americans I know that are descended from Italian, Irish, Russian, or Polish ancestry are not white either?
110 years ago, all these groups actually were NOT considered "white" by large segments of America. It is time to stop classifying Hispanics as non-white.
P.S. Just caught your followup post; sarcasm IN PRINT can be very trickey! The odd thing is, though: vast numbers of Americans believe your non-sarcastic version.
Sorry, I've just heard that term used excessively in the past few weeks

Seems to me it only takes one juror to hang a jury ....
"THEY" had to get white in there somewhere to make it racial and get Al and Jessie some free fired chicken.
Term white hispanic is so contradictory. That's the same thing as a caucasian hispanic. Inherently, caucasian and hispanic are two different things. If a person should be from both a white and hispanic parents, then that person will be bi-racial, not a white hispanic.
And besides, the term white hispanic is being used as a derogatory term in the Zimmerman case.
I remember the uproar during the 2000 census. It was "ruled" that Caucasian was a RACE, Hispanic was an ETHNICITY, and White was sort of a RACE but with many bureaucratic exceptions. Black was still a RACE, but no longer an approved term in census usage. Twelve years later, we are still stuck in administrative purgatory on the subject; it will take a few more generations to get things sorted out.
I believe the term "White Hispanic" is being used by folks on the GTPI with a note of irony and derision directed at the MSM, race agitators, and other leftists who tried to paint a narrative of the shooting before all the facts were known.
Initially, all reports were that a "White" person shot a "Black" person. When photos of Zimmerman began surfacing, and his Hispanic genealogy became known, the MSM wouldn't back out of their own narrative, and transformed Zimmerman into a "White Hispanic."
Those here on the GTPI, and elsewhere, noted this blatantly racist manipulation by the MSM/ agitators/ leftists with disgust and disdain.
A supplementary observation: There was a two-week period AFTER the actual shooting when little was noted in the press about this incident. THEN it took off. I believe that what fueled the emergence was the name "Zimmerman", an obvious (to most people) WASP-type name. If Z's name had been, say, Martinez, the story would have stayed on the Police Reporting List, and faded.
I thoroughly agree with your observations.
You're exactly right. Without even knowing the facts, the jury pool has already been corrupted by racial slurs
i live in the uneducated southeast where there are five races not counting nascar.
if youre russian, french, polish, canadien, german, wisconsinian....you are White.
if youre venezualan, puerto rican, brazilian, spanish or portugese.... you are Mexican.
if youre japanese, filipino, thai, cambodian, vietnamese.....you are Chinese.
if youre "black" and from zimbobwaian, camaroonian, jamaican, rhodisian, ghanaian....you are African.
if youre "black" and from the projects or the country, you are Black.
