Latino/Hispanic is an ethnicity, which is different from race, which a lot of people don’t get. One is tied to geography/religion/language the other to skin color. Both are social constructs that tell us more about the people who use them (particularly how they use them) than the people they actually apply to.

It’s fascinating to me. I’ve noticed it even on the micro level even within my SiL’s family. That family tree is one I would love to research.
