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.
That's pretty spot on.

A good example of this is ethnic Chinese poeple that live in Thailand are considered "white people" by the much darker indiginous Thais.

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.

/THREAD.
Of course. The simple answer really is that he is a white latino, plenty of them I have seen before. Its not uncommon at all.

Have the "race s a social construct" bitches shown up yet?

That would be a great question to ask Martinez, if he consideres himself white. I would do it in a heartbeat, rating's gold...

Then I would ask Chisora if he considers himself himan.
