SUPPOSE you were a Spanish tourist in the U. S. or suppose you were an oldline Spanish-American whose ancestors had settled here many, many generations ago. What would your feelings be toward the Chicanos, Hispanics and Mexican-Americans whom the media currently hold up as representatives of Spanish culture? An interesting answer to this touchy question was printed recently in the letters section of the National Observer. Starting out by saying that the biggest problem the Hispanics “have is the identity of themselves,” the letter, written by Stephen Aponte of Colorado, goes on (ILLUSTRATION: Spanish sports fans):

As an American of Spanish descent (Galicia, Spain), I cannot agree with their banner of identity; i.e. Spanish heritage, culture, etc. In my associations with Mexican-Americans and other Latin Americans in the United States, I have found that little is known by them when it comes to Spanish culture, heritage, and customs of the Spaniards. With the exception of religion and language, no other significant factor of identity can be claimed.

Perhaps it is admiration for the old country that makes me resent the misrepresentation of Spain by a people whose physiognomy, mode of speech, and national characteristics are alien to the Spanish scene. The misconception shared by U. S. Hispanics and other Americans as well, that to be of Spanish background you must be brown-skinned with dark eyes and jet black hair, is absurd.

Well how, then, do we account for the Spanish surnames in the Americas? In the new world the intermarriage of Spaniards with the native Indian played a part, but it was mainly the conversion to Christianity and not the result of direct lineage, as many U. S. Hispanics are led to believe.

Likewise, the American negro, who has been on this continent around Whites for almost 400 years, has interbreed with some Whites (willing to do so). But they only used names that Whites have invented. They regress to their own nature with names such as Anqwan, Shaniqua, Shaquita, Lashonda, Vonte, Deshonte, and other such gibberish. Sounds like they are reverting to “type”. They only use English but it is readily seen that they are, again, reverting to “type”: ebonics, which is degenerating to gibberish. And after 400 years on this continent around Whites many of them can barely speak properly. They turn dance, something that was about grace, form, symmetry, beauty etc, into what appears to be a close semblance to African tribal dance i.e simulating copulation. They adopt Christianity and… Read more »

I guess there must be quite many White Spaniards and Portuguese, who must be quite angry and offended to be lumped together with the seething masses of mongrels, who are polluting the once magnificent Central and South American Continents!… Likewise, it also a great insult to call these regions “Latin America”!… “Latin” in name only!
The first White Explorers and Conquerors of Central and South America had an absolutely wonderful, unique opportunity to build a splendid White Tropical Paradise in these amazingly beautiful regions. Instead, they choose to turn it into a new Hell on Earth!… This is what I was thinking while I was traveling on a passenger boat, through the grandiose Delta of the Amazon River, a few months ago.
