nucrash: I think I am going to sit this one out.
Thunderpipes: Can you imagine a little miss White beauty contest? Why is this crap acceptable?
Ex-Texan: Well, what ethnicity do you think she is, then?
Valiente: Hilarious, in an ironic sort of way. It reminds me of the six Miss Jamaicas: http://sites.davidson.edu/anthro/global/2013/05/14/ten-types-one-peop l e-construction-of-race-in-jamaica/
Whatchoo Talkinbout: 'there was no proof she had at least 25% Latina blood.'There's a blood test for that?
Thunderpipes: 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?

tokyogirl79: 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.
letrole: latino is masculine, latina is femininewhen 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.
SmithHiller: Did she forget the Sharpie eyebrows?
umad: Whatchoo Talkinbout: 'there was no proof she had at least 25% Latina blood.'There's a blood test for that?Yes. You watch the blood cells to see if they start shooting eachother during a Quinceañera.
edmo: Thunderpipes: Can you imagine a little miss White beauty contest? Why is this crap acceptable?It isn't but somehow it's tolerated.If only it were the only double standard in America.
boinkingbill: 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.
CWeinerWV: 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.
