I think its fair to differentiate between someone who's family is from Europe and someone who's from Mexico or to the south.
I believe there's some benefits to diversity. For example, I think its perfectly ok to seek out a qualified minority candidate even if there's several white candidates just standing right in front of you. Not that you should be forced to do so; but the choice should be yours. However, my initial impression of Sotomayor is that she's just not good enough. Its one thing if there really wasn't much of a difference between her and the very best legal mind available; but I'm concerned that there is a rather large difference and that makes this choice wrong IMO. Obama is no longer perfect in my eyes
Then again with Clarence Thomas on the bench, I suppose the Democrats deserve a mulligan too.
You are missing the point? It's not differentiating Mexicans and Europeans. Spaniards are ALWAYS considers hispanic. The definition traditionally meant people that traced their roots to Iberian Peninsula, which means traced their roots to either Spain or Portugal. Doesn't make much sense to drop Portugal from the definition, because that also drops Brazilians from the definition to.
So someone from Peru or Ecuador would be hispanic, but someone from Brazil would not
Makes not sense. Lots of stuff we do doesn't though, so that is just par for the course.
