The definition of white changes over the years- for example people of Irish descent were not originally considered white.

Whoa that's a new one on me. I knew they were terribly oppressed along with Italians and others. I lived in Boston for a few years and picked up a lot about that, but yeah, not white? Got a good link about that?

I bought a monitor stand recently and the back mount does not fit perfectly with the back of my monitor.

A good pair of tinsnips could make short work of that, or maybe even good (like pro linesman quality) wirecutters.

It's not really true, or at least it depends on a particular definition of whiteness. Book here: "How the Irish Became White" and discussion of contemporaneous laws here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news...jews-and-so-on/

...otherwise it would have been literally illegal for Irish to have married British Americans...

It’s a short story called The Man Without a Country, by Edward Everett Hale. It is entirely fictional.

Thanks! I'd forgotten it was fiction, so that explains why I couldn't find it.

Someone explained to me the whole non-hispanic checkbox thing we have in the US at one point in a way that didn't sound insane, but I forgot wtf it was so it still sounds insane. There was some weird, but super utilitarian reason behind it but there is no way it wasn't probably dumb and racist.

well part of it is that there are hispanic people of all races (black hispanics mainly from the caribbean, white hispanics from all over depending on when their ancestors arrived to start killing natives, asian hispanics, etc), and the societal conditions for two people of the same race where one is hispanic and one isn't might be different, so it's useful to know, even if only to know that this group of people of whatever race will need government services in spanish

they do let you check multiple race boxes (I check white and asian) so they could add hispanic there but I think the view is that "hispanic" is a linguistic classification rather than a racial one, although if you live in let's say texas the vast majority of hispanic people you know are going to be mexican so that will make you automatically think hispanic = brown

not only are there hispanic people of all races, there are also mexican people of all races. it's a nationality not a race, there are white mexicans and black mexicans and asian mexicans, but a majority of those who emigrate to the us are of mixed native american descent. there are also many hispanic people in the southwestern states who are native american, spanish speakers, have spanish surnames, and who's families come from the us, not mexico. this comes from spanish colonization and the mission system.

Plenty of hispanic people donít speak Spanish.

Itís also possible to speak Spanish as a first language without identifying as hispanic.

The census form doesnít ask about language, but the American Community Survey administered by the Census Bureau does.

Race isn't a thing. That "black hispanics" are "black" is completely arbitrary, they're only "the same race" because some racist in the 1700s decided so

Back in the day, I used to make animated videos using Macromedia Flash, which had a super idiotproof frame by frame system for drawing and animating videos. Is there a modern day equivalent to that?
