Media coming up with new racial types

A Hispanic man kills a black teenager. Not much of a national story until the media invent a new race -- white Hispanic -- and doctor a 911 call to imply the white Hispanic is a racist.

Now the media circus can fly. The circus clowns have three or four months to get the racial pot boiling and turn this into some serious corporate profit. But who is complaining. This is capitalism in its finest form. A job well done.

As a side note: Next time you see one of your Hispanic friends demand to know whether he is a white, Asian or African Hispanic. I'm guessing after you pick yourself off the ground, he will tell you he is a Hispanic Hispanic. That's a new race I just created.
