"The term has also been used to denote the culture and people of countries formerly ruled by the Spanish Empire, usually with a majority Hispanophone population. Collectively known as Hispanic America, this region includes Mexico, the majority of the Central and South American countries, and the Spanish-speaking island-nations of the Caribbean. "Hispanic" is also used by people in the United States who are of Hispanic American origin (Hispanic and Latino Americans). Cultural elements (Spanish names, the Spanish language, Spanish customs, etc.) and people known as Hispanic can also be found in other areas that were formerly part of the Spanish Empire, such as in Equatorial Guinea in Africa".

Hispanic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
What's funny though - people in the Phillipines should be considered "hispanic" but are not.

Even in the article itself they speak of taking back lands that they claim were stolen from them by the U.S.

Yes, there is a hispanic culture. Look it up in the dictionary. It is ethnic/national groups joined together mainly by the common language of Spanish. They have many cultural similarities also. Some that are different also.

Europeans are not joined together by a common language nor common cultural practices. Each country has its own language and culture so that isn't the same thing as a hispanic culture where there is a common language. Geez, are you kidding me? Curious how old you are. These are things taught in grade school.
What "cultural similarities" do all hispanics have beside the language? Be specific if you can

I know what Aztlan means. And just because a few extremists want to use it for their personal agenda doesn't change it's definition.

But please point out all these cultural similarities all hispanics have, as I'm sure there are a lot of them
