Vill. of Freeport v. Barrella, No. 14-2270-cv (2d Cir. Feb. 16, 2016).
Is “Hispanic” a race? If you discriminate against people because they’re Hispanic, then you’re a creep, or Donald Trump (but I repeat myself). Have you also committed racial discrimination under 42 U.S.C. § 1981 and Title VII? The Second Circuit—looking to social understandings and to history—holds that discriminating either against, or in favor of, Latinos does indeed qualify as racial discrimination.
