Must be tough to travel the world as a stateless person eh? Why would you give up citizenship of a wonderful, rich country with free healthcare? Didn't you say that in another post?

Yes, and they're Hispanic as well. Pope Francis is actually full Italian, but at least half of Argentina has some Italian ancestry.

A full Chinese person born in Panama is also Hispanic.

IMO, the only people from south of the US border who really aren't "Hispanic" are the people like me, folks of full Indigenous American heritage who resisted assimilating into Spanish/Hispanic culture for generations (Spanish ain't my language). I've never identify with the Hispanic/Latino label.

Last name is always a good indication.

Interestingly enough, many Mexicans do not identify with that term, they don't consider themselves nor call themselves "Latinos."

Of course they are. Why wouldn't they be?

I seldom hear the term Latino in California what I usually hear is Mexican and occasionally Hispanic but usually Hispanic from people who are mixed from various Latin Americans ancestries.

The majority of people who have Spanish last names around here where I live are Filipinos.

I hear you. A lot of them still mix the occasional spanish word into their dialogue.

Yeah, if you talk to a Mexican and you refer to them as Latino or ask them if they're Latino, many of them will refuse to identify with that nomenclature. They are Mexican through and through. In Latin America, on the other hand, everyone refers to themselves as Latinos, likewise in Puerto Rico, etc.

To me, "Hispanic" refers to anyone who has a Spanish last name (or one parent who does), who has Spanish blood, who comes from a culture that derives directly from the conquistador culture and who may share the language. I suppose "Hispanic" includes Spaniards as well.

so now that I think about it, how about the Italian descendents in Argentina? They are certainly Latino but are they Hispanic? I guess this is what Mouldy Old Shmo was getting on about. Good question. I'd probably say they are not, because their heritage doesn't come from Spain.

Don Francisco is from Venezuela, correct? So probably Hispanic. Pope Francisco I'm not sure about - he's probably Italian.


The gypsies in Spain I would definitely say they are NOT Hispanic. Their heritage is a whole different ball of wax.
