Well do to an accurate comparison, you first need to specify what you mean by "LA"... just LA city or LA country...

Because I read a comment someone post where they say East LA was 100% Hispanic. Why it is true, East LA is not part of City of LA.... so

LA proper or greater LA, Hispanics are still the majority. LA's population is very Hispanic, it's neither good nor bad. It's just a fact, known to all. Still, it makes people become defensive and turn to semantics to divert the discussion from reality to words.

I was just visited West LA and it was mostly white people and Asians. Beverly Hills felt mostly Jewish and Persian and other Middle Eastern minorities than anything else, I hardly ever saw a Latino out that way.

Census bureau states
Miami City is 71.2% Latino of with total population estimate as of July 1, 2016: 453,579
Los Angeles City is 48.6% Latino of with total population estimate as of July 1, 2016: 3,976,322

So LA is almost eight times as large with a Latino population considerably higher percentage. I believe that Miami is the only sizeable city in the entire world where over half the population was born in another country.

If you pick up a Spanish book, more often than not they call citizens of USA United Statesians or the equivalent in Spanish. The reason is that many scholars in Latin America think that the term "American" should apply to anyone who lives in Northern or Latin America. At any rate the use of the term American to apply to people from the 13 colonies that would become the US, seems to date from colonial times. It was their way of denoting to people that they were a unique part of the British empire. Canadians did not call themselves Americans. At any rate within a few decades after independence, the French started complaining that the word America applied to their colonies as well. It was not until later than Spanish speaking countries began to raise the same objection.

Only if the United States is a Latin American country.

You didn't visit much of Los Angeles, either the city or the county then.

It's like someone going to NYC and saying NYC is mostly Chinese because they were in Flushing or Elmhurist, Queens.

You know too little and saw too little to comment.
