ANSWER #4 of 14

Latin America is more of a concept then a geographical entity- when people who live in Latin American countries (like I do in Honduras) say "Soy Latino-Americano" they mean that they are descendants from Spanish & native forefathers.

If you want to get a real sense of the Latino-Americano lifestyle read 'Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent' (in Spanish Las venas abiertas de América Latina) a book written by Uruguayan journalist Eduardo Galeano in 1971.

It will open your eyes (and hopefully your heart) to the sadness of some of the f**cking screwing that has been practiced on this segment of the world by 1st world countries.

Hispaniais the latin name for the Iberian Peninsula, where Spain and Portugal are. The people from Latin America are called Hispanic because ther ansestery is from one of those countries, and they speak one of those languages.


ANSWER #14 of 14

Latin America refers to territories in the Americas where the Spanish or Portuguese languages prevail: Mexico, most of Central and South America, and in the Caribbean, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico — in summary, Hispanic America and Brazil. Latin America is, therefore, defined as all those parts of the Americas that were once part of the Spanish and Portuguese Empires.
