Ted Cruz's father is a Cuban immigrant, but Democrat Gov. Richardson said "I Don"t Think He Should Be Defined as a Hispanic". Isn't that a bit arbitrary?

-------------------------------

When ABC News asked Richardson, "Do you think he represents most Hispanics with his politics?"

The Democratic Governor answered "No, no. He's anti-immigration. Almost every Hispanic in the country wants to see immigration reform. No, I don"t think he should be defined as a Hispanic. He's a politician from Texas. A conservative state."

Defining people at all based on ethnicity or nativity is absolutely ridiculous. I'm a native American, because I was born in America. My "race" is a mixture of western European countries, which I've never visited in my life. I am "white" only in the colloquial sense, and that has no deeper meaning in anything I do. The only meaningful distinction I can make of myself is that I am American, and that has to do with my cultural practices, not genetics or nativity.
Beliefs in a nutshell:
- The Ends never justify the Means.
- Objectivity is secondary to subjectivity.
- The War on Drugs is the worst policy in the U.S.
- Most people worship technology as a religion.
- Computers will never become sentient.

Black Man =/= African American

African Americans are of African decent, while Black Men have black skin; one can be of African decent and not have black skin.

Ted Cruz responds to the ridiculous claim. Like a true worldwide debate champion, he tells Cavuto he's not into name-calling, he's into the substance of the arguments. When have you ever heard a politician talk like that before?

The word "hispanic" is about as arbitrary as it gets anyways at least as applied to Americans.
Hispanic is even LESS arbitrary than American, as American actually means from the Americas (ie North, South, or central.) Richardson is a sole-less POS that will sell his mother for political gain.
