Killing Moon, I reiterate, you are a moron. You are overly sensitive, you construe malice where there is none, you fabricate mental constructs that allow you to attribute racist undertones to other peoples speech. You are a Politically Correct twit. You clearly have the analytical capacity of a cashew and should probably be barred from interacting with other humans until you can successfully process adult conversation without panicking over perceived insults.
Edit: I'm twice as white as Wolf.

Semantics aside, what he said can be construed as racism. Hell, I was watching the event with no Latino friends around (other than myself) and it was noted just as well

Besides which, the fact that one sloppy definition is not absolutely contradictory to your position (but still, as I've demonstrated, can be interpreted in such a way that it doesn't support you) doesn't change the fact that most definitions of "hispanic" are:
1) Of or relating to Spain or Spanish-speaking Latin America.
2) Of or relating to a Spanish-speaking people or culture.
Online Etymology Dictionary:
Hispanic: "pertaining to Spain" (especially ancient Spain) 1584, from L. Hispanicus, from Hispania "Iberian Peninsula," from Hispanus "Spaniard" (see Spaniard). Specific application to Sp.-speaking parts of the New World is 1889, Amer.Eng.; esp. applied since c.1972 to Sp.-speaking persons of Latin American descent living in U.S.
1. related to a Spanish-speaking people or culture; "the Hispanic population of California is growing rapidly"
That's just what I found on dictionary.com.
Hmmn, even without giving a definition, last I checked, Brazilians ARE Hispanic.
I'm not trying to be an asshole here, I just like the precise use of language. I don't have any opinion on Forrest Griffin's comments. And if I'm wrong about the word hispanic, I'd like to know it, since this is how I use it.

It could be Martial artists.
