why being a pale latina count as white everywhere exept America? Posted on May 23, 2023 by Anonymous I ask as a pale latina tranner.
Because being latino/a isn't really an identity in Europe
Facial features? I'm light skinned, but still have Native/Mestiza face. Like Mexicans say to each other, "tienes el nopal en la frente" - you have a cactus on your forehead. lol
that's because the usa is a shithole
It’s also white in America
"""white""" Latino isn't white in usa.
That's so retarded on the part of the US. Some latinos literally have 100% european ancestry, especially in south america.
Americans deep down believe that even the whitest of latinos is secretly like 0.000000001% black or injun which by American rules isn't white.
Don't US whites themselves have something like 5% black ancestry on average?
Yes it is, I live in LA
You live in glorified mexico.
No. Not at all.
American whites are 98.6% European on average with the vast majority being completely unmixed with non-euros.
The few that are mixed are white-passing Melungeons who only claim whiteness so they can conform.
Many Melungeons are rejecting white as a label and embracing that fact they're mixed.
One drop rule is a thing in the US.
eugh how can just your hand be so disgusting
I'm a fat ugly bastard. So it's a given
Because in america you can larp as an oppressed person who has been dealt many hardships due to racism and upbringing on college applications
Why don't know why Latin people would do that in conservative states.
Actually nvm, I think in "europe" they consider you white bc duh they do not care if you do not look out of place.
But in spain and portugal it is different bc there is a stigma to your origin
even if you aren't pale it's still white in america.
if you're latin american you have to circle both "White" and "Hispanic/Latino" on forms.
The hispanic/latino part is how they distinguish actual whites from latinx "whites"
Yes and No.
Historically, there are 3 races: Caucasoid, Negroid, and Mongoloid.
Because latina americans don't fit in there they've been defined as multiple different races throughout recent history. Since they have European roots (spain) they've been defined as Caucasoid. But, american natives don't fit in either (native americans have been occasionally categorized as Mongoloid because they kind of look asian).
So the US census came up with this alternative. Have them be Caucasoid but define Hispanic ancestry.
because the USA is racist AF so every single race has to be evenly divided, which is half about how you look and half where you come from. hell they differenciate between russian white england white and italy white they're just insane. i even heard that hitler modeled his own divisions on the usa's because they do it so much
As an australian, I've only known like 3 latinos and they've all been extremely white and considered white by everyone.
You all look the same ngl
american racism goes by one drop rule/ancestry and assumes all Latin americans are mixed race mutts
Its really weird. My mom considers me white even though when next to my white friends, I clearly am not white.
do latina trannies even browse this site? Other than Ksenia I never seen one, only black and white trannies.
The only reason it’s not consider white in America is because white hispanics especially 3 world retards online like to be racist to fit in more and prove their whiteness. it’s cringe especially when they attack other Hispanics. you see it happen in irl too. like bitch you’re Mexican too
I agree racism is bad, but your point is stupid beyond comprehention, so not being racist make you white ? Whites are known for being the ceo of racism, whites invented racism as we know today.
Also black Americans are also Americans and whites ameeicans even today hold a lot racism even the libs ones.
All the strutural barriers black people get and the reason a lot are poor is because even libs refuse to fix the the problems that keep black people in poor and marginalized. The racism between withe and brown latin people is nothing compared to the racism between withe Americans and everything else in their country.
I had a latina (cis) gf who was pretty light skinned and I did mostly just think of her as white i.e. I mostly didn't think of her race at all.
She didn't even know how to speak fluent Spanish somehow.
