They do ? Actually Lumpia is not really Filipino. It is something we got from the Chinese immigrants in the Philippines.

Interesting and informative comments from everyone.

Philippines has a wealth of Spanish colonial architecture too.
I really wish Spanish was still spoken in this country.

Hey joelaldo do they use vosotros in EG?

Everyone keeps mentioning Spanish and hispanic...

Here is my question: What About the Brazilians?
They speak Portuguese,so does that not make them hispanic?

What about forth generation Nyc Puerto Ricans who no longer speak Spanish?
Can they still be considered Hispanic?

Brazil is not part of the Hispanidad for starters and the history is with that or Portugal, not Spain so I'm thinking no.

In the US yes they can still be considered Hispanic. The US census does not stipulate that they have to speak Spanish.

People that are Brazilian can still check "Hispanic" on the census forms.

That is really quite confusing. Hispanic comes from the word Hispania. Brasil was not colonised by Spain but by Portugal. They didn't get their culture from Spaniards but from Portuguese and when you look at the members of La Hispanidad, Brasil is not there. There should probably also be a separate group for the Portuguese speaking countries to avoid confusion.

Most census statistics list "Hispanic and Latino" as one cultural group. Like it or not, people of Portuguese descent fall under the Latino category as well. Also the Spanish and Portuguese languages have a lot of similarities.
