Define white since you seem to be the expert.

Don't be thrown off by the language he speaks or the fact that he lives in Argentina. I am talking about his DNA.

This is true. . . Sergio looks like he's about 90/10 white caucasian european/amerindian.

Technically, he's white, but then again, by cultural standards, he's not. . . I don't know how people in Argentina consider themselves; in Uruguay I know they consider themselves white (if they are white).

It's ****ed up, but whatever. . . It doesn't really matter. . .

He's not even that slick. . . Balance is just OK. . . He's just got fast hands, and feet. . .

Chavez, a white latino, is going to beat his ass come September 15th anyway. . .

And this hype train is going to end, just as quick as it started.

Chavez is Mexican, as is Canelo. . . They don't seem to be as concerned about "race," as they do nationality. . .

Latinos (mexicans, cubans, etc.) run the gamut from midnight black, to soapy white. . .

Chavez is definitely on the soapy white end of the spectrum, along with Canelo. .

But as long as htey are classified as Mexicans, I don't think they care if you called them white.

I will say tehre is racism just the same in Cuba, Mexico, etc. . . It's not overt or anything. . . But if you look at socioecnomic status, there is a undeniable correlation between "whiteness" and "wealth/power"

I know there are very few 100% pure race people anymore (maybe some Asians since relative to other races they do the least amount of mixing). My point was that the three pure races are black (negroid), white (caucasoid) and Asian (mongoloid) and Latino is a mix of white and Asian (Native American) with occassionally some black mixed in. I don't care where a person lives or what language they speak, if they have European ancestry like Sergio does they are white.

As far as mixed race people like Ward, Obama, and Halle Berry are concerned, the only people that can "claim" them are other mixed race people (black and white) because they are 50% white and 50% black. Lastly, I love how in 2012 here in America people still enforce the racist Jim Crowe one drop rule and someone could be less than 50% black and will be labeled black, but if someone is 90% white and 10% something else people will go "they're not white". How absurd! Pete Sampras is of Greek decent, are you telling me he isn't white? I guess because he is American and doesn't have a Spanish last name he's white but if he did he would be considered "Latino" or "Hispanic". Anderson Silva is from Brazil and speaks Portuguese, are you telling me he isn't black? Look at him!
