No. In Angola, Portuguese is the first language. It's firmly rooted there. Most do not speak any of the indigenous languages.

Why does it matter when black was the original race in which everyone's gene can be traced back too.

Angolans aren't Portuguese living in Africa. They are multi LINGUAL Africans, who speak Portuguese. Get out of Luanda and loads speak the various African languages.


And I get back to the fact that unless one considers a Nigerian Anglo Saxon, then Angolans and others who speak Iberian languages are African.

Equally nonsensical as those who wish to pretend that Africans are chocolate colored Spaniards or Portuguese.

This while the vast majority of Equatorial Guineans speak a variety of languages, with their ethnic language most often the one most used. No one here will contemplate describing Kenyans as Anglo Saxon, so why are these people Hispanic?
Trinidad and Tobago is largely English-speaking. All Hispanic means is Spanish-speaking.

If they consider themselves Hispanic, what's the big deal?

Yes understood but those of us who know better know that it is not.

Doesn't it just depend on what you class as being 'Hispanic' then? Ethnicity or language?

I'm not making the claim that they are portuguese.

The fact remains that Portuguese is the native language of the majority of Angolans. Most do not speak any indigenous african languages.

Depends on who's "us"
To me, they're hispanic but what's more important it is what they consider themselves.
