Puerto Rican Man in New York, Pissed Because 'Hispanic' Is Not a Race

Laura Martinez

I thought I had heard everything about the 2010 Census, including NALEO's efforts to get us off our tía's couch and the Jesus-Caesar Augustus connection. But this one takes the cake: Turns out a Puerto Rican security guard in Bronx, New York, this week refused to fill out his Census form, because "Hispanic" was not an option under the Race box.

"For me to see this I feel kind of offended," Richard Robles told WPIX.com.
And, why wouldn't he? After all, for reasons I yet have to understand, the U.S. Census considers "Vietnamese," "Korean" and "Japanese" a race. So, continuing that logic: If Korean people are of the "Korean race", and "Vietnamese" people are from the "Vietnamese race," I urge Mr. Robles' to check himself as a proud member of the Puerto Rican race.

As for myself, I was truly offended "Human" was not an option; so I had to use the "Some other race --print race" space to spell out N.P.I. (Ni Pinche Idea)

Buenisimo. Naturalmente, NPI significa Ni Puta Idea... pero Ni Pinche Idea lo tropicaliza muy bien. En el ultimo Time Magazine, hablando de internet penetration, sin embargo, ellos ponen cuatro razas: White, Black, Hispanic, Oriental. El boricua en cuestion haria bien en leer Time
