This Washington Post article on Hispanics and race has gotten virtually no play in the blogosphere. I think it's more important than that, especially in light of the Grutter decision. While its main thrust is a discussion of how Hispanics of different complexions are doing in this country, the main point is that there's no such race as "hispanic." Protestations from La Raza to the contrary, this report in no way supports their basic contention; instead, it deeply undermines it. The whole question of how hispanics deal with race is a complex one, but if properly handled, it can go a long way towards pushing us back towards sanity on this issue.
