23. This is off-topic, but

one glaring flaw I see with this pie chart from Mother Jones is that they included "Hispanic", even though Hispanic is NOT a racial group like how Blacks and Whites are. It really drives me nuts how so many Americans (including my own family) believe that Hispanic is both a race and a look, when they can come in many different shades. There are White, Black, Asian, American Indian, Pacific Islander, and mixed people who are of Hispanic descent. Look at the singer Shakira and Victor Cruz of the NY Giants, for example; they look nothing alike.
Being Hispanic has to do with one's culture, not anything biological. This is why it is listed separately from the racial question in the U.S. Census.
