    Latin America is so confusing….if someone is german and they move to spain it still makes them of german blood and descent but argentinians and mexicans are both hispanics so either way it doesn’t matter.

      What are you talking about?Spanish are Also hispanics.The most hispanic people in the world.Hispanic.is a person whose first language is Spanish,it is not relationed with blood or race. USA is who do it confusing. It is like Americans can be considered Anglophone,becuase English is the first language there, that doesn’t mean that the ancestry of Americnas change, that they are not of german or italian or polish or African or japanese or Any ancestry beside English.Also, in Latín America, The word Hispanic is barely used, and when it is used is about language, Spanish language, so not all people born in hispanic countries are considered hispanic, it would be considered whitewashing to call hispanic to a indigenous (although people in USA think the contrary).I am from Latín America, and I have never heard a person saying “I am hispanic”, that word is more used in USA, and not in the right way.In the same way that it is.not very common ti heard that Americans saying they are Anglophones or French that they are francophones.You are confusing ethnicity with language.
