    Kollektiv said"A benefit and a disadvantage of looking white is that most people treat you as though you were white. And so, because of how you've been treated, you come to expect this sort of treatment, not perhaps, realizing that you're being treated this way because people think you're white, but rather falsely supposing that you're being treated this way because people think you are a valuable person.

    So, for example, you come to expect a certain level of respect, a certain degree of attention to your voice and opinions, certain liberties of action and self-expression to which you falsely suppose yourself to be entitled because your voice, your opinion, and your conduct are valuable in themselves. To those who in fact believe (even though they would never voice this belief to themselves) that black people are not entitled to this degree of respect, attention, and liberty, the sight of a black person behaving as though she were can, indeed, look very much like arrogance. It may not occur to them that she simply does not realize that her blackness should make any difference."

    Why would you like to be treated as anything else? Being treated as white is only an advantage.

    Because race isn't just about how you look physically. And even physically, there is often ambiguity. A lot of Latinos and Middle Easterners can pass for white.

    I think you are a bit confused; Latin is not a race, it's a word to describe people that live in Spanish speaking countries; in some of these countries the population are entirely western and white, so obviously they're gonna be treated as whites no matter where they go.

    I get what you're saying though, some light brownish latins or middle easterns could dress, speak and act as their original cultures OR act like whites, and people will automatically treat them as whites too. That I agree with you.

    I think you are a bit confused. For a start Latin is not a race, it's a word to describe people that live in Spanish speaking countries; in some of these countries the population are entirely western and white, so obviously they're gonna be treated as white.

    I know Latino/Hispanic is not technically a race, but race, especially in the United States, doesn't care about truth or fact. We think Hispanic is a biological racial category that is an indicator of intrinsic racial differences.


    Racial biological category? People from Argentina or Uruguay are direct descends from Europeans, with no black or native blood, them being completely white. They are latins because they live in spanish speaking countries but they're biologically and culturally white. If they travel to other countries and even if they have a strong accent (that ussually gets mistaken by italian accent) they will be foreigners for sure, but still white.

    No it does not. Along with thinking you're in charge comes the responsibility to be a good steward in that pisition. When you think you know it all (any race) then you have missed out in so much from other races/cultures that you will never know what you could have had.

    No one has a right to act like a douche.
