Perhaps some Hispanic organizations do but as a whole the Portuguese have no interest in being accepted by Hispanic organizations or by Hispanics(with the exception of some politicians) . I'm very aware of the current discussions. I just don't think the communities are similar enough culturally and culturally there are too many differences. It's actually moving in the opposite direction their is more interest advocating our own interests as it relates to politics, the Portuguese language and culture. Portuguese is taught in some University departments as part of the Hispanic department because usually the Portuguese department isn't large enough to be separate. The only one's currently advocating for an alliance with Hispanics are those that are arguing that a boost in numbers is beneficial because of increased connections I have a cousin who is a prominent scientist who has made this argument and the other group of people advocating this are losers who thing they could benefit from a minority status.
