This has to be connected to George Zimmerman somehow.

Something tells me the little girl's mother told a lie to get the girl into the contest in the first place.

Can you imagine a little miss White beauty contest? Why is this crap acceptable?
 
2013-09-28 01:32:18 PM  
Is she related to the Zimmerman family. They're lily-white.

It isn't but somehow it's tolerated.

If only it were the only double standard in America.

You know... if you have to prove your Hispanic-ness and you're somewhat suspicious that someone might have lied to enter a contest, better to ask for documentation up front. Otherwise it's a little late to be asking for documentation after you've already handed her the crown.

This isn't like an athletic competition where the contestants shoot themselves up with a little more Hispanic-ness just before they walk out on stage. I'm pretty sure that biological racial and ethnic heritage is a static thing changed only by sudden Maury-esque revelations where someone reveals that they're not the father and the true grandfather was Chris Caucasian over in Idaho.

'there was no proof she had at least 25% Latina blood.'

There's a blood test for that?

They keep a vampire on staff to test? Mmmm......tastes black.
 
2013-09-28 01:41:46 PM  
I would think that if one is entering into a contest that has certain requirements the first thing would be proof of said requirement.

Of course I would also require the contestants to have the ability to speak beaner.

Will we ever get over this absurd, imprecise social construct that we call "race?"

what's a latina blood? perhaps I didn't pay enough attention during HS science but I didn't know there is 'race' marker in human blood.
 
2013-09-28 01:49:24 PM  
Besides, thought the one drop rule applied? That only for afro-kin-americans? I have about 1/8th or so Indian blood (tomahawk kind), can I get free stuff and casinos?

That was an interesting read. Race is a weird thing and minorities in any location (whether they are racial minorities, cultural minorities, ethnic minorities or any other kind) can be really defensive if someone claims they are a part of that minority and might not quite be "black enough" (or Hispanic or gay or whatever enough). Plus in the Americas there is a discrimination against darker skinned individuals within nearly all racial groups, black, Hispanic, whatever.

I was talking about racial divisions in Miami with a Korean friend and an African American friend (I'm white) the other day. The Korean friend pointed out a few places she wasn't comfortable going and so did the African American and not many were surprising. The black guy said though that the only two places he actually FEARED to go were the Jamaican and Haitian parts of Miami, because although he is very dark skinned, he is not the RIGHT KIND of black. A very cultural problem for him, not exactly racial

They should have blocked her from competing if they thought there was an issue.  They let her run, she won, get over it and move on... da fuq is wrong with some people?

Mama June is going to be furious. Spent all that money get Honey boo boo's hair corn-rowed, not to mention using up a tin of shoe polish on the black face... And the hours of finishing lessons in cigar rolling. All wasted.

Of course it's about the color of her skin.  All of Central and South America were created by white Europeans mostly from Spain and Portugal (yes they are hite people) if you ever took a gander at the elected officials of these countries you will notice that they are overwhelming white.  White Spanish people with black hair are white people, they are not "black Spanish".  As a matter of fact, most of the illegals that have been crossing into the US are those mixed race mulatto people who the ruling class Mexicans as well as all the white Mexicans want out of the country.  They insists that the "racists" US take them and unfortunately, a whole lot of ignorant people in the US who are racists but don't want to show that they are not racists, agree with the white Mexicans.

Because minorities deserve special privilege because whites have the advantage in this politically-correct country where minorities get special privilege...  or some such nonsense...

when i hear the word latina, i think of that star trek episode where they went back in time to the civil war, and lincoln calls uhuru an enchanting negress.

I was under the impression that entering the competition without qualifying for legal entry was proof enough of being Hispanic.

Latinos and Hispanics are by definition white. This was drilled into me by reading the zimmerman threads.e

Gosh, I'm glad other white people don't go around holding a paper bag up to my face to decide who I am.  Honestly, races are never, EVER "pure", so if someone self-identifies as black or hispanic or whatever, that should be enough for others to respect that identity.  Unfortunately people are almost universally dicks to each other about this stuff.

I was in the supposedly liberal bastion of the world, San Francisco, and I was heard speaking Spanish, and a guy said "dude you are the whitest mexican, I ever saw".  Evidently in California if you speak Spanish you are automatically a Mexican.

When I did the census over the summer, we spent a very long time on making sure we got the difference of "black Hispanic" and "white Hispanic" and why hispanic isn't a race so you shouldn't say it that way, and so on and so on.  Basically comes down to the white Hispanics want no association with the black Hispanics.  Hell they don't want association with other white Hispanics if they aren't from the right country.  I don't know why we accept and encourage such ignorance, that is as long as it's not coming from a white person.

To be fair, Lincoln or any other progressive of the time would have used that term without malice.  Also, I don't think they went back in time, it was an exact simulation of Lincoln generated by aliens.

There are actually words in Spanish that do not follow the gender rules that you would think normally apply.

El agua, la radio, dentista(el o la), modelo(el o la), y el problema.  Of course there are tons more.

Really? Tell me how. I'm 1/2 Choctaw and I get nothing because I live in the Creek Tribal area. Ok, I am able to get free healthcare, but if Obamacare is gonna be anything like that, they can keep it.
