Latino/Latina, Hispanic or Spanish….

Do you know the difference?

In the video below, Kat Lazo Of TheeKatsMeoww brings us through the difference between these culturally distinct and ethnically diverse groups of people.

She interviews (random) people by asking them what they believe the individual terms mean and even goes through some visual exercises to help demonstrate her ‘experiment’.

In the end, I think viewers are left with a bit more knowledge when it comes to differentiating between Latino/Latina, Hispanic and Spanish people as well some food for thought as she ends with self identifying as an “Indigenous Latina”.

Did you find this video helpful?  What other cultural or ethnic terms confuse you or just don’t seem clear?  Leave a note below to discuss!
