Visigoths should not be considered Hispanic
Debate Rounds (4)
Those people have always in the history of racism in America been considered white. The first documented case of racism against Hispanics, was against man named Longoria, not a Gomez, a Sanchez. Visigoths are Germanics, from the Germanic tribe named the Visigoths who conquered Spain in the Middle Ages. Not Spanish.
First of all, those people typically act white, cause they are white. They don't say "bro" the way a Rivera (which I am partially) or Santiago will. They act white, they are white. I don't understand how people consider them Hispanic names. Also, it should be noted that of all who started the "Classificacion 80" it was all with true Spanish names like Estess, Garcia, Delgado, Rivera. The Visigoths also love "Friends" too, just for a note, unlike us "Seinfeld"-watching Spanish.
But anyways, for those reasons, they should not be considered Spanish or Hispanic.
Seeing as the Visigoths are in fact a Germanic tribe, they themselves are not Spanish. Yet the descendants of the Visigoths would have to be considered Spaniards seeing as they were born into the country of Spain. I have no idea why you brought Hispanics into this debate seeing as they are more of a culture than a race. As for the entire "acting white" proposition. Please clarify how someone exactly acts white.

Thank you. It was an error. Visigoths are not Spanish at all. They're white. In the USA, until recently, Visigoths were considered white. Mexican surnames for the 1950s were typically Rodriguez, Sanchez, Gomez, Lopez, etc.
The first case of actually documented racism in the 1950s against Mexicans was against a non-Visigoth with the last name Longoria.
