This Week On “Being Latino”: Hispanic Or Latino?

Being Latino, the largest Latino community on Facebook, is a communication platform designed to educate and connect all peoples across the global Latino spectrum. They also have a fascinating online magazine. Every week, we’ll be featuring a story we feel you should read.

Hispanic or Latino? To paraphrase Shakespeare, that is the question. On a personal level, we’ve always felt that “Latino” is the preferred nomenclature. And yet people still insist on calling us “Hispanic,” a term that reflects more on the mutual language and history of colonization that Latin America shares. In this week’s selection from our friends over at Being Latino, Adriana Villavicencio proposes a compromise that welcomes the usage of both terms.
