Transcript of LATINO IS NOT A RACE

The term Latino generally refers to countries (or cultures) that were once under Roman rule. Latinos can be of any race or of a mixed race. There are Latinos who have European, African, Native American and Asian Ancestry. Some speak Spanish; some don't. Some are U.S. born; others are immigrants. Latino is an ethnic group, not a race category.
The term Hispanic is a translation of the Old World word Hispania (Latin) or Hispano (Hispanic/Spanish). Hispanic is anyone from Spain, or people whose culture and heritage have ties to Spain and, who may or may not speak Spanish. In the U.S. the term Hispanic gained acceptance after it was picked up by the government and used in forms and census to identify people with Spanish heritage.
Ethnicity: shared culturally distinctive characteristics based on race, religion, or national origin.

Race refers to group of people who have differences and similarities in traits that are defined in society. Society uses this as the bases to group people and defines how to treat them usually based on physical traits like skin color.
