No, it’s not the belligerent American empire, the spying police state, never-ending military aggression in the Middle East, cops gone wild, unlimited government, public debt that can never be repaid, the impending bankruptcy of the welfare/warfare state, etc., etc.  It’s the outrage — outrage! — expressed by some in the “mainstream media” that the new “bachelor” (on the ABC television show by that name beginning in January), a Spanish soccer player, does not appear to be Hispanic enough.  According to a “panel of experts” on the subject, anyway, some of whom are upset that a “white Hispanic” was chosen.  (A friend of mine who was born and raised in Spain once asked me, “What is this ‘Hispanic’ word that you Americans use, anyway?”).
