  1. If certain Latinos – or anyone – decides to “consciously reject these definitions” – God bless ’em! I just don’t see a problem here.

    One of the things I noticed when I was in Mexico City was the way that missing persons were described on fliers in subway stations, post offices, etc. There was no indicator of “race,” but there was an indicator of “skin color,” which ranged from light to dark. This isn’t to say there was no conception of race – the presentation of Mexican history, as puts a lot of emphasis on the conflict between and eventual merger of Spanish and Mexica peoples. But it does seem be thought of somewhat differently than in the U.S.
