Heard on Univision

There are as many Americans from Latin American ancestry who despise the term "Hispanic" (my Dad is one of them) or "Latino" (he doesn't even know what that means and neither do I) as those who like that Nixonian label.

I think that Univision newscasters have begun a semantic revenge upon Non Hispanic Americans of European ancestry; lately I've noticed that they refer to this group as "Anglo-Saxons".

That ought to piss off Scots, Italians, Spaniards, French, Russians, Bulgarians, Greeks, Welsh, Irish, Swedes, Norwegians, Estonians, Finns, Laplanders, Andorrans, Belgians, Poles, Danes, and all the other folks who live from Portugal to Russia, etc. as much as being labeled under one label pisses me (and a lot of other gente) off...

You describe a Scot as an Anglo-anything; you better be ready to fight...

Heh, heh... makes my head hurt.
