How do people still not know this? Hispanic is an ethnicity not a race. You can be Hispanic and be white, black or whatever. I are so many women on here talk about their biracial kids or interracial relationships because their DH is Hispanic or the kids' dad is Hispanic but then you see a pic of the dad and they're white! If 1 white person is with a white Hispanic that is not an interracial relationship nor do they have biracial kids. Sorry, just a pet peeve of mine.

It's actually considered an ethnicity not a race because of the fact that Hispanics come in all sorts of races. Look at the US Census Bureau.

Even for hospitals when you register you choose race and then can check off "Hispanic decent." Same with school registration.

Those applications are flawed.
