You will never call a Spaniard,hispanic

Hispanic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


I guess you are not Spanish, neither from the peninsula or the former empire.
Hispanidad was revived during the 20's by a Basque priest in Buenos Aires to replace "Día de la raza" for "Día de la Hispanidad".
Now the word is not popular in Spain because it sounds to Franco, Falange and Nodos, which were Franco's newsreels.
Americans only see Mexicans, they see Mexican, everything that speaks Spanish is Mexican.

On the ethnic level, 95% of Paraguayans are mixed with Spanish, 52% of Peruvians are either mixed with Spanish or are overwhelmingly of Spanish ancestry, 85% of Ecuadorians are either of Spanish descent or are mixed with Spanish; and only 45% of Bolivians have heritages that connects them to Europe whether fully or mixed. As with the language, it tends to vary. For example, Lima, which is the capital of Peru, is essentially a Hispanic city with most of its population being mestizos and a significant minority are whites and most people speak Spanish as their mother tongue, but once you go into the mountain areas that's another type of Peru that has little to do with the Peru of Lima.

This contrast with Equatorial Guineans because roughly 1.4% of the population actually has heritages from outside Sub-Saharan Africa and that includes the mixed types that probably makes up most of that tiny minority. The remaining 98.6% are 100% of Sub-Saharan African extraction, albeit from different ethnic origins or tribes. Equatorial Guinea's situation is similar to the Philippines with the exception that the latter was part of Spain for many more centuries than the former.


A culture, not a race. You seem as obsessed with race as the bushkiman from Torremolinos and her 170 accounts.

Not really as there are many people that speak Spanish that are not Hispanic.
