    If a guy guy/girl dates a Hispanic girl/guy is it considered interracial? I ask this because there is this Hispanic girl I have been friends with for about a year now. The reason I never made a move on her is because she was in a relationship, well she broke up with him a few months back but has yet to fully move on but I think she is finally starting to as the other night she asked me if I was still interested in a certain girl and I told her no and then she started flirting with me. So it just got me thinking, if a white guy/girl dates a Hispanic girl/guy is it interracial?

    A hispanic person depending their background can be of any race; black, white, brown or mixed. I am Mexican so If I was dating a person who was white (non hispanic) or asian, then yes it would be interracial. Just curious, so what if it is interracial? You interested in her?

    No, not at all. Definitely not a racist person I was just curious. When everyone thinks of interracial relationships they usually think of black and white. I never hear people mention white and Hispanic so I was curious.

    Yes, very much interested in her California07.

    "Everyone" where I come from first thinks of white/asian when interracial relationships come up in conversation. If you consider white, black, east asian, south asian, hispanic, and native american (among other groups) people to be 'races' of humanity, than a relationship between a person of one group and a person of another group would be an interracial relationship. IMO.

    All hispanic means is your from latin america. 94% of people from Argentina are White for example, but all of them are hispanic.

    Yes, it is interracial; but only in New Jersey. :rolleyes:
    If it matters to you this much, maybe you should stick with your own kind. :redface:










    :irked: Why Lord are there so many stupid people having sex and I with an above average IQ am not. :confused: :mad:

    I feel you on this one, looks like I have to drop my IQ to get laid! *goes to pub*

    I think the whole interracial thing is to be silly to be honest. Unless you decided to date a different class of hominid, like a Neanderthal, I don't see why it matters if the person you date is darker, or lighter, than you. I am not saying you care, just that so many out there DO care and it is stupid, IMO.

    It doesn't matter to me it was just a question. Geez, some of you are so uptight here about everything but I guess no sex will do that to you. Well if you are trying to insult me by saying I have a below average IQ and am having sex but you aren't then you are wrong considering I am still a virgin.

    I was just curious because for example if you ever watch a porn with a white guy banging a Hispanic girl it usually is just like " hung white guy bangs Hispanic slut" but when it's a black guy it's like "interracial huge hung black guy bangs blonde white slut".

    Her being Hispanic definitely plays no factor to me I was really just curious. Like for example if I got with her and someone asked if I have ever been in an interracial relationship I wanted to know if that would count as one. Black and white is always talked about, white and asian is always talked about but Hispanic and white which happens to be very common is never really talked about as being interracial. Simple question, nothing more. Race doesn't play a factor in me dating her at all.

    Hispanic or latino/a is not a race! It is a heritage background. Hispanic means, you speak spanish, Latino, your language comes from Latin origin.

    There are white, black, asian, indian,what ever race hispanics/latinos but most are "Half blood" This includes, Mestizo (most of the latin america's population), mulatto, cholo and a couple more than I can't remember now. In my case, I am Colombian and 75% white, 25% native Colombian. therefore, in the U.S., I am considered white because the percentage of white blood is higher. For me, I am Mestizo! Do you know that the chances you have a mixture of two or more races is probably more than 90%? Then, what does interracial means? Interracial is between two distinctive races which most likely are not 100% pure. Most White and Black people in the U.S are not purely white or black. But there are Asian that most likely are Asian, Same with indian, etc.

    Yes its interracial dating evening if they look fully white or Black American. Please don't let porn tell you about race LOL!For the record black and Latin porn is interracial.What I see here is maybe fear of being with this woman because of race. In this day and age we date whom ever we want reguardless of what others think. Cause if you don't someone else will!

    I don't have fear at all. This has been way blown out of proportion. A few of my friends are in interracial relationships themselves so it's not embarrassment or anything like that. Whether anyone here wants to believe it or not I was just curious if it was considered interracial or not.

    Quick answer, yes.

    But I understand your question. You are asking if there are issues associated with this. Not really. You wont get a lot of anything from her family if she were to bring you home. It is not a mix that people get that startled about.

    Now if you were black, then yes, that raises eyebrows and you could run into issues, unfortunatley. Thats just life, and it sucks. We are not a color blind society yet. Or you could get lucky and it not be an issue at all. But I doubt it.

    Think about it, before you all send me your hate mail. Why is it that interarcial porn ususally means someone black, and non-black? Ususally a white. But if its an Asian girl is fucking a white dude, then its Asian porn. Same with Latin porn and everything else.

    OK, now send me your hate mail.

    Exactly man. I agree that interracial is always looked at as black and someone non-black. You never hear about a white guy and Hispanic girl as interracial. Usually it will just say "white guy bangs Hispanic chick", sometimes it won't even call her Hispanic and other times even though she's Hispanic they will refer to her as white if she don't look very Hispanic.

    "race" in and of itself is stupid.. there is only ONE race of human, with all members being able to interbreed with each other, if so inclined. This "race" thing is all a made up artificial notion to let some people think that they are "better" than some other people. The sooner all skin tones are shades of brown, the better. BTW.. I am of north Euro decent and about as white as you can get without being blond.

    AGAIN! HISPANIC OR LATINO IS NOT A RACE IT IS OF LANGUAGE AND HERITAGE ORIGIN! How can that be INTERRACIAL when hispanic or Latin o/a is not a race? Have you seen a black hispanic? I have! Have you seen a hispanic/latin person with blue or green eyes and white skin? yes! I have three siblings who are white skin and blonde hair. That is why when I fill up an application the race question are.

    Are you:

    White (Non from Hispanic origin)
    Black (Non from Hispanic origin)

    Hispanic and black IS interracial, why? Because Hispanic is considered white.
    Hispanic and white IS NOT, because hispanic is considered white. It cannot be interracial unless the % of native indian blood is above 50%


    Everytime I have got a traffic ticket, the police officers have marked my ticket as "White" and I am clearly hispanic. Do I get offended? No, because I have 75% white blood and 25% native Colombian.

    I have no issue with the "interracial" concept or relationships. We are all human beings of equal value, but, basically, they guys question is. Is a hispanic or spanish considered a race, the answer is NO it is not.

    That is NOT really what he was asking. Look deeper into the question the way I did and dont take it so literal. Ask yourself, "What is he REALLY asking?" Read my post above.

    BTW, all that stuff you have posted is true. No argument here. But we are still dealing with people's perceptions. I am still waiting for someone to use the word Mexican to describe a race.
