Latinos voted for President Barack Obama over Republican Mitt Romney by 71% to 27%, according to an analysis of exit polls by the Pew Hispanic Center, a Project of the Pew Research Center.1

Obama’s national vote share among Hispanic voters is the highest seen by a Democratic candidate since 1996, when President Bill Clinton won 72% of the Hispanic vote.

Most(Hispanic's) from my hometown wear very light make up and wear blue colored contacts, which I've never understood due to a rally happening in my town to get rid of the Hispanics Confused

Yes, I did. If you look at the trajectory of minorities' opinions on a variety of social issues, they align almost in lock step yet are far more progressive than the majority of whites. Look at what's going on with the immigration reform debate? You don't think Latinos hear the dog whistles and slurs hurled at them on the regular? Immigration reform is also an issue that many on the forefront of the modern civil rights movement have taken up as common cause. That, and because I don't think Latinos are somehow self-hating as a people, is why I don't even begin to believe they will shed their heritage and start trying to be white anymore than any other group. 

Also, American pop culture today is increasingly dominated by blacks, Latinos and olive skinned people and white folks that either want to be black or Latino. Why would Latinos want to go back to the white standard? Why would they do that to themselves? I can't imagine that they're not as sick and damn tired of white domination and privilege as we are. 


"Latinos voted for President Barack Obama over Republican Mitt Romney by 71% to 27%, according to an analysis of exit polls by the Pew Hispanic Center, a Project of the Pew Research Center.1"

Thanks for bringing in some facts. Just look at some of the Latino Decisions polling and it's clear that the divide between mainstream whites and Latinos is growing bigger, not smaller.

As part of the enrollment paperwork that we do w/ new students at the career school I work at, students are asked, (they can decline), to select the racial category that they identify with.
 
The 1st question is" Do you consider yourself Hispanic/Latino?"
 
The 2nd part of the question is:
In addition, select one of more racial categories to describe yourself:
 
   American Indian or Alaska Native
   Asian
   Black or African American
   Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander
   White
 
It's about 60/40. Some don't select and other category and the rest in fact, select White. The ones that are darker than me, usually. LOL
 
I don't care, I just find it..interesting.
 
Strangely, the ones that are Black/Mexican mixed, rarely claim their Mexcian side.

they will/do see themselves as another kind of white and buck for the privilege that comes with. 

"traditional" whites, however, will feel hispanics are sorely mistaken, but are willing to deal as long as they look the part and stay in their place. 


This is very true. I have met Hispanics who cannot speak Spanish or worse: will act like they can't, just to fit in. I have met some who don't even know where their immigrants parents are from, because they never wanted anything to do with their own heritage.
A lot of hispanics here in LA are doing that. The lighter they are, the more they try. I have met way too many Latinos/Hispanics kissing as$ of whites .

But a lot of Latinos are white. They've always been white, not a new white. The majority of old school Cubans in Miami are white people. Shakira and Nina Garcia are white. Look at Univision and telemundo and tell me what you see...white people.

Latinos have the same issues and divides as every other group on the planet.
