Very true, although the statement "Creoles are a Latin culture" is just as incorrect as "Americans are white."

It depends. In a sense, a Latin culture can be described as originating from the places where Roman influences are strong and the Latin-based languages are spoken. Latin today often refers to Hispanics. Latin in its earlier days referred to anyone coming from France, Spain, Italy, Portugal, or any other place where Romance language are spoken.

I used to refer to Latinos the same as Hispanics, now I do not use the terms interchangeably and will soon drop Hispanics as well.
