What race is Salma Hayek?

I don't get which box people with skin color like mine are supposed to check, and Salma has about the same skin color as me. That is not white or black and the other options (on forms) aren't even colors. Her ethnicity is Hispanic since she is from Mexico, but what race would you categorize her as?

Update:

Mexan, Lebanese, and Hispanic are ethnicities, but Hispanic is not a race. If that were true all these forms would not have two separate questions, and this includes the US Census.

Update 2:

Herb, you didn't explain why you think she is Caucasian. It didn't say on the web site you put down.

    Cruz is from Madrid, Spain and Hayek was born in Veracruz, Mexico so they are from different nationalities. To say they were the same would be like saying someone from America and England were the same.

    For the love of Margaret Mead, Salma Hayek is Caucasion as to race. Her mother's and father's national backgrounds are for defining ethnicity, which for Salma is Mexican. Her racial background is Caucasian, which is what you asked for.

    Um... Mexican is an ethnicity. Hispanic is RACE. But without further ado, you have answered your own question.
