    These stereotyped Spanish names are very common on Spaniards, Portuguese, Central-Southern Americans and Filipinos and some of them on Southern Italians like Carmelo/Carmela, Rosario/Rosaria, Mario/Maria, Carmen…. in every Spanish lands.
    As if I don’t already know Spaniards -and Portuguese too- are Hispanics haaah, Spaniards deny it cause they don’t accept to be related to Latin Americans they’re so ———.
    Maybe you can be a Latin American living in Spain or a immigrant who feel native Spaniard not a real.

            It’s so hilarious to me how this dude keeps using stereotypically Spanish names as some form of insulting Hispanic/Latin-Americans xD
            Like … brother … what names do you think people have in Spain? Our president is literally called Pedro.
            Also yeah I’m Hispanic, Spaniards are literally Hispanics, Spain was called Hispania during Roman rule, that’s quite literally where “Hispanic” comes from, that’s some history for ya
