Question and answer
Q: How does Hispanic and Latino differ from other ethnic groups (such as differences in ancestry, language, or culture?)
A: Hispanic or Latino Americans are Americans with origins in the countries of Latin America and in general all persons in the United States who self-identify as Hispanic or Latino.[2][3][4][5][6] While the two terms are sometimes used interchangeably, [ "Hispanic" is a narrower term which only refers to persons of Spanish-speaking origin or ancestry, while "Latino" is more frequently used to refer
more generally to anyone of Latin American origin or ancestry, including Brazilians. [7] [8] [9] [10] Reflecting especially the Latin American population, which has origins in all the continents and many ancestries,[11] Hispanic/Latino Americans are very racially diverse, and as a result form an ethnic category, rather than a race.[5][12][13][14] The choice of name is associated with location: Hispanic and Latino Americans who reside in the eastern United States tend to prefer the term Hispanic, whereas those in the west usually prefer Latino.[4] ]
