Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush once indicated he was Hispanic on a voter registration form in that state, but the likely 2016 Republican presidential contender says it was unintentional.
In a 2009 voter-registration application obtained by The New York Times from the Miami-Dade County Elections Department, Bush marked a circle next to “Hispanic” in the field labeled “race/ethnicity.” The next circle, “White, not Hispanic,” was not checked.
“It’s unclear where the paperwork error was made,” replied a Bush representative in an email to Yahoo News. “The governor’s family certainly got a good laugh out of it. He is not Hispanic.”
Not going to lie… I’m pretty sure I have marked myself down as Native American from time to time. First, because I was born in America and am a native. Second, because I hate the incessant need to categorize all of us. I’ve never tried Hispanic before… maybe I could be one of those White Hispanics.
