Benefits Of Minority Status A Draw For Many Immigrants

I wonder if Spanish speaking people claimed minority status in their countries and Islands of origin, when they or their families lived there? The Spanish speaking people from Mexico, Central America, South America who come to America, did they also claim minority status in the countries they left?

Did current black African immigrants claim minority status in the African countries they left to come to America?

Do the Arabs and Muslims coming to America claim minority status in the countries they left?

I wonder if Asians like being called yellow people by Hispanics. I wouldn’t think so.

Do native Indians like being called red people by Hispanics?

Just today, Russell Contreras an Associated Press race and ethnicity writer referred to people by color category as if everyone does it. Africans demanded to be called black. Hispanics demanded to be called brown. I don’t think anybody else demanded to be called a color.

It appears that the people who come to America en masse, do so because in their own countries they didn’t have the benefits of minority status.

I’m pretty sure that Asians who collect social benefits in America get deported. I never saw them protest being treated differently than the other color peoples who demanded to be called a color.
