in Puerto Rico

So now someone from Trinidad is the same as being from Puerto Rico. Let me explain. A coworker of mine said that there were 3 hispanics in the office today. That I knew of, there were only 2, me included. So I asked, who’s the third? Said person pointed to one of the student assistants, who I know is from Trinidad. Hmmmmm – He’s not hispanic, he’s from Trinidad! Then this person proceeded to tell me – Well, it’s close enough, isn’t it? Suuuuuureeeee! It’s in the Caribbean and it’s an island – so let’s just say from now on that all people from the Caribbean are hispanic. Why not??!!

Some people are so ignorant.
