      Cardozo had no HISPANIC (Spanish) background and did NOT consider himself
      Hispanic or Portuguese (he considered himself Jewish ethnicity)

      A distant ancestor of Cardozo lived in Portugal for a while centuries
      before (and did not speak Portuguese as his primary language).
      Portugal in the first place is not considered Hispanic (there are
      many people of Portuguese descent in the US and they do not consider
      themselves Hispanics)

      background has to include
      a) significant participation in the culture
      b) recent enough so that it impacts the person
      c) acknowledged by the person
