Fact: Each and every inhabitant of the Americas is a descendant of
immigrants. Everyone. Including the "aboriginal peoples." "What's your
point?" you say? Nothing... just thought I'd mention it.

Another fact: Nestor mentioned Latin Americans (not Hispanics). Anyway,
a Latin American can be of any "race:" there are Latin Americans of
European descent, of African descent, Amerindians, etc., etc. I doubt
that you took this into consideration as you formulated your response...
