Seth MacFarlane Hispanic Joke: Oscar's Host Can't Understand Latino Actors, Twitter Reacts

Seth MacFarlane Hispanic Joke: Oscar's Host Can't Understand Latino Actors, Twitter Reacts

“As far as I know, "Spaniards" are not "Latinos". Two of those three actors are Spaniards. Would it have been offensive if he used three French actors? I mean I understand that there are some issues between the "american white folk" and "latinos", but once the joke is involving Spaniards, I think it's not the same.”

“Spanish nationals are indeed Latin. They are Latin-European. Italians are also Latin-European.

I know that Spanish nationals like to distance themselves from Latin-Americans, but they are Latin. So are the Italians.”

“Dear author of this story/creator of the headline,

Your incorrect use of the term "professor" is confusing (as evidenced by several of the comments below). Please use the correct term, as used in your source, the Boston Globe, namely "lecturer" or "instructor". There is a big difference.”

“They are all educators. The titles just distinguish the pay level and degree of damage they do to society”

“She isn't tenured, as indicated by the term "Lecturer". You can even visit the bu math department's website and find her listed under "Instructors". The magic of the internet. Now, say sorry.”

“The last paragraph of this article is not only off-topic, but misguided. On wikipedia, reports from Reuters, NPR, and CNN are by definition "reliable sources" that are to be used for "verification". It is, in fact, against the "guidelines" of wikipedia for an editor to include their "original research" (such as independently verified facts that do not appear in any reliable sources). Information on wikipedia is meant to be verifiable from reliable sources, not looked into by random editors.

As an interesting comparison to other encyclopedias, I'd ask if there are any other encyclopedias that currently contain any content on this shooting.

Also, it should be pointed out that the use of "the site" in the final paragraph is misguided in that all actions described are simply taken by the several editors of wikipedia. For example, anyone in the world could post "a warning, reminding readers that the story was developing" on a random article.”
