One thought on “An Interesting Spin on Hispanic Data #Hispanic #diversity”

  1. Interesting. Maybe they’ve always been white, and Spanish speaking since their Polish, German, Italian, French, Hungarian, Czech, etc. families immigrated to Latin America before some eventually immigrated to the U.S. Most of the Hispanics or Latinos (both U.S. words) I know are white but the U.S. Census typically has not offered them accurate descriptors. If you’re among the 40% of Venezuelans or Columbians, for example, who happen to be white, then you’re white when you immigrate to the U.S. or anywhere else. Latin American countries received immigrants from all over Europe well into the 20th century, and still do today. South America has a largely white and unmixed, 18th-20th century immigration history in addition it’s history of race-mixing conquistadores during the 14th-17th centuries. (Some pockets are heavily Asian, too, due to “imported” labor.)
