IMHO the black "leadership" now acts to keep the inner cities as they are to ensure a permanent voting block. If blacks get good educations and moved out of the inner cities then Jackson and Sharpton would have no power base.

As far as Hispanics go they aren't even an actual different race as opposed to Caucasians since Spain is a European nation! It a fraud invented for political reasons again. They haven't been suppressed any heavier than the Irish or Italians were at one time. They aren't even really much of a minority any more and in many parts of the US are the majority.

Stop generalizing about race and handle the bias incidents that occur as individual events. Stop blaming and stereotyping.

I can give plenty of incidents where I was discriminated against because I'm white or I ride a motorcycle or I don't listen to country music or.... well, no one has it easy. You gotta take responsibility for your own life because you are the only one who is going to solve your problems.
With all due respect I have to disagree. I think the confusion is natural over Hispanic origin because this group speaks Spanish. However, strictly speaking "Hispanics" are usually from Latin America or more predominately from Mexico This people are not just of Spanish descent but are the product of the indigenous people of South, Central America and the Spanish. I know because I am Hispanic.

Last I heard from science guys, their is no "race", just different physical characteristics.

That means I not a Mongoloid anymore, just some dude with yellow skin and epicanthic eyefolds.

I think its fine that Harley Davidson recognizes this certain Hispanic group although its main reason Iam sure is from a sales perspective, and being that the Hispanics are the majority now its quite simple to understand why their doing this sort of promotion.

Just wish they wouldn't cop such an attitude when they walk in the shop and no one speaks Spanish? I mean you are in America not Miami!
