Mensagem:  Miguel, Regardless of my sloppy spelling, you are just plain wrong - as usual. I was raised in the south and am there as I write. The so-called "one drop rule" doesn't mean anything, and never did. If a person doesn't have any obvious "black" characteristics, then "white" people view them as white - unless they speak with a "black" dialect; that is the reality whether or not you are aware of it. There are many other dialects in this country as well, both regional and classist, and they have a large effect on how people are viewed by others. It is an interesting subject, and I don't think it exists so strongly in other languages, but I am hoping someone who has direct experience will comment on that. "Hispanic", just as with the term "Anglo", has various levels of usage by people. Most properly it is a cultural and linguistic descriptive, but less precisly it is commonly used to connote the ethnicity of a person. In that sense it would describe most Brizilians. I'm sorry that these subjects bother you, but these differences between people do exist and to ignore them or to exaggerate the situation in certain areas doesn't help anyone. Do you have any first hand knowledge of the south? Have you ever been there? I have a feeling you only know what you have read about it.
