Most of european descendants are italian and spanish descendants (there are german, irish descendants too) so you won't find so many blond/nordic looking people. There is some racism but not US style racism at all. There are not different subcultures or things like that. It is mostly an income/education thing. What is weird about Martinez is that he sounds (in spanish of course) as a very educated man despite coming from a poor neighborhood. As an example Maidana has a very small voacabulary, he doesn't talk too much and he is from a poor origin too. Regarding Martinez "ethnic" origin, nobody cares at all. And Latino is a US label for their inmigrants, not used outside US, it is not like a chilean or paraguayan think of themselves as latin.
Oh shut the **** up.

Trust me, if you have visited Latin America, then you know that racism is alive and well. Talk to folks whose lineage traces back to purely to Spain, and not Spanish-Indio, and you'll find plenty of racism.

And this is coming from someone of Spanish ancestry.

Yup.

Idiots on this site seem are under the misapprehension that Europeans only emigrated to what later became the United States.

Here's a little heads-up to those folks:

Amer-Indians, mestizos, castizos, and the various black and black/white/Indio folks of Latin America speak SPANISH.

And just how the **** do you think that happened?

Canelo is Latino and about as white as is humanly possible.

Why can people not accept the fact that there are white latinos,black latinos, mixed lations, amerindian latinos.....?

Its baffling

I also don't understand. Canelo is OBVIOUSLY white and yet you have people that say "he's not white, he's latino!".

Also, Edison Miranda is not black!, he's latino!.

maidana = mestizo
canelo = white
sergio = white


" latino " " hispanic "= made up terms by The U.S. Office of Management and Budget to group all spanish speakers regardless of race under one banner. because they thought mestizo , mulatto etc... were not politically correct .

the only "hispanic people " i know were from the ancient land of hispania , in southern europe .. you know .. HADRIAN .. TRAJAN etc...
the only " LATINS " are the italic people who lived in central italy thousands of years ago , and founded the roman culture and civilisation .

hispanic is inherently white.
latin is inherently white .


seriously how stupid are you people ? that's like some retards in the bronx " i'm not black, i'm dominican !!! " when they're darker than wesley snipes

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Bleach Sergio's hair blonde in the above photo and you have a young, handsome Robert Redford lookalike. The dude's white and a damn good athlete like Wlad, Vitali and Joe Calzaghe.

EXACTLY. This tread is truly a litmus test for retardation.. Latino is not a ****ing race!! How ****ing retarded does one have to be not understand this concept?


Is Gamboa black? Abso****inglutley, he's Afro-Cuban, and the Brothers on here quickly claim him as their own, but another Latino fighter can't possibly be Caucasian.

Not that all this race shit even matters, but goddamn we have some ignorant mu****as on here.
