anyway yes he's up there...

Willie pep...
another Argentine nicolino locche could be considered...


oh and lets not forget one of the most athletic slickest white boxers of all time, Tyson Fury!!! that man makes Martinez look like Reginald Denning...

I will now show you three athletes who are HISPANIC, but obviously different races.

"Big Papi", baseball player for the BoSox [Obviously of African descent- i.e. BLACK]
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Juan Manuel Del Potro, tennis player from Argentina [Obviously of European descent- i.e. WHITE]
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Maradona [Mother was Italian Immigrant and Father was Native Indian, so he's a Mestizo Mix]
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


All three of the people above are Hispanics/Latinos, but they are different races.

So, yes, Sergio is a Hispanic/Latino, but as far as his race goes... he's definitely European (White). He might have a Native ancestor somewhere in his lineage, though, I don't know his whole history... but just by looking at him you can tell he's of mostly European descent..

Class is now over. F'ing Christ.
Bump for all the uneducated folks.

in the social sense, race is a reality, in the scientific sense, it is not.

Southpaw is right. . .

"Latino" is not a race. . . "Argentinean is not a race" "Mexican is not a race."

There are black latinos, mexicans, cubans, brazilians. .

There are white latinos, mexicans, cubans, brazilians. .

Then there are mestizos - mix of amerindians (the natives of whatever latino country before the whites conquered). . or mix of european, black, and amerindian (lot of this in brazil).

Sergio Martinez looks white to me . . . Maybe a distant mix of "amerindian."

But whatever. . . It's not important. . .

I don't think skin colorr has anything to do with it and Sergio is not white. He is one of the best athletes in the sport regardless to his skin color or what country he hails from.

listen, you arent the end all be all on race. the fact that so many people have contrasting opinions in this thread does nothing but lend to the erratic changeability of racial identification. there is no across the board understanding of racial identity, and for anyone to believe that he has mostly european blood based on his looks alone is preposterous. skin color is not the sole determining factor in someone's origin, and every other potential factor in the form of physical traits is unreliable due to a wide range of variations that undoubtedly exist, in small or high number, across races. "pure race" huh?

This would be like saying Breidis Prescott is not black. . .

He is black latino. . Black columbian. . .




Same wtih Canelo, and Chavez Jr. . . They are Mexican, and "latino," but they are clearly white.

migration blends the three into different breeds of people all over the planet.
