[QUOTE=danieb23]Why not just put Latino/Hispanic? It's not a racial group it's an ethnicity, so one shouldn't need to specify whether they are a black or white Hispanic on the drop down list.
That leads me to ask. Why is Hispanic/Latino regarded as a race?[
Probably b/c when the word comes up, a lot of Americans get a picture in their head of what one looks like. Kinda like saying "African" (short-haired woman with dark skin) or Asian (slanted-eyed person with dark hair and yellow skin ....negating others such as Indians).
