"Is Rick Sanchez a minority? What kind of minority would that be? He is whiter than I am."

I don't get this pontificating about who is "allowed" to be considered a minority and object to it, especially if judgments about skin color are going to be brought into play. Yes, there is a stereotype that Latinos are "dark." But melanin level is not a defining factor in Hispanic identity. Does Jon Stewart need to have "a swarthy Middle Eastern appearance" before he may be considered to belong to a minority?

Ferdinand,

I would say the Sanchez was an EEOC minority, when it suited him, skin color not-withstanding.
"Hispanic" is hardly a homogenous term if one is actually looking for a cultural descriptor.
