On paper, you are an Hispanic. In another country, you would be an American. In America, you may say American, however, as to ethnic...Hispanic. be advised Latin refers to Latin America. Hispanic refers to Spain. Spanish is the primary language in both and the Hispanic may apply to Mexican heritage. Sixty or 70 years ago, the Census used White-Hispanic to define born in America and Latin ancestry. The need to be ethnically correct is still debate material for those in identity crisis.
