You may be right moe, this isn't my feild of much interest but I do know that the media is now using the "hispanic" term as oppose to "white". Piers Morgan on CNN even told one of his guests that (and I'm paraphrasing) .. "this isn't white on black crime, the guy is hispanic, that's minority vs. minority".
In N. American the term "white" is mis-used a lot. I have had people tell me that I'm not white, cause Eastern Europeans are a "different" white. wtf does that mean? I guess this was the response I got after calling people out on using the word "cracker" and/or other kinds of rhetoric. It's a little strange but I kind of do understand. White people in America who are a few generations old are a lot different than us Europeans who were born/raised/ in Europe and/or recently migrated to the Americas (first generation).
You are right UZ, white= European. Not all Europeans look white either, but the vast majority do.
White is racial, which means biological=blood. If a Swedish couple gives birth to child in China, the child is white, not Chinese. Confusing geography with biology is jewspeak, and meant to confuse.
I think some American whites are part native Indian, which explains why they get so obese.
