I cant remember which martinez fight it was but it was recent, in the post fight interview he dedicated his win to all latinos little did he know he shouldve been dedicating it to all whites... How can he be so dumb?.

So much for Canelo, and Chavez Jr. being latino. . .


So much for Edison Miranda being "latino"

So much for Rigondeaux getting dedication from Sergio! Gamboa? **** HIM! He's not latino either! He's black!

Yeah it does. You never see anyone calling Obama white, or Tiger Woods asian.

Sammy Sosa was never a latino either. . He just went from being black, to white

Right. But since he was born in a Latin american country it does make him white and hispanic.

Exactly! Your typical white boxer would not do that.

just like an American black dude like mayweather or hopkins wouldn't; but a guy like miranda, gamboa, rigo would dedicate to latinos. .

martinez is smart - he knows the biggest boxing demographic fanbase in USA is latino. . so he wants to get all the mexican-americans on his back. . .

Gamboa is black, cuban, and latino; martinez is white, argentinean, and latino.

Exactly. That question has no answer because whiteness is socially constructed and varies across space and time.

Decades ago, the Irish and Italians were not considered white by any stretch of the imagination.

Martinez is white in his own country, but were he to travel here, he would not be treated as the equivalent of a domestic white American/European. Globally, whiteness is tied to dominant cultural norms. There is no objective "white" because race isn't objectively real; it's a social construction that uses both cultural and phenotypical associations to classify social groups.
