Is “American” a race? No! Neither is “Cuban.” Born in the U.S. to Cuban parents who descend from white Spaniards, I’m white and blue-eyed. Most Americans are still behind with thinking anyone of Hispanic background is automatically “brown” or “Mexican.” It’s not as if Europeans ONLY migrated to what became the U.S. and Canada. Just like the U.S. and Canada are composed of people of all races, the same applies to Latin American countries…and whites are no exception.
