someone may already have stated this...but these "titles" do nothing but confuse and separate...what is a Black non-Hispanic or Hispanic non-white? These titles at most only identify us by nationality or culture...but not by ethnicity...there is a HUGE difference...while i was in high school this Egyptian cat, who never identified himself as being Black, said that he was African-American on all his college applications so he could get money...technically he is African-American...he was born in Egypt, but now lives in the US...but he is not black...see how the name game works now? it's all a game...
