And yeah, the media just happened upon it in the last month.In the 2010 United States Census, 50.5 million Americans (16.3% of the total population) listed themselves as ethnically Hispanic or Latino. Of those, 53.0% (26.7 million) self-identified as racially white.
Commonly used in the census, research and surveys, but how many times have you heard "white hispanic" actually used in describing someone in a news article before this case? I mean really this isn't that hard, I personally have never heard it outside of a census or research setting.
That would be the part where I mention that the media just happened upon it in the last month.
My mistake, thought you were being sarcastic. Then yes we agree.
