From wiki..."Latin America"

- In one sense, Latin America refers only to those 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. Latin America is, therefore, defined as all those parts of the Americas that were once part of the Spanish and Portuguese Empires. [9][10]

- The term may is often used, particularly in the United States, to refer to all of the Americas south of the United States, thus including (in addition to the above areas) English-speaking countries such as Belize, Jamaica, Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana, Antigua and Barbuda, St. Lucia, Dominica, Grenada, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and the Bahamas, as well as Haiti and Martinique, Guadeloupe, French Guiana, the Netherlands Antilles, Aruba and Suriname. In this context, it is noted that in the Netherlands Antilles and Aruba, Papiamento – a predominantly Iberian–derived creole language – is spoken by the majority of the population.[11][12][13][14][15][16] Given that the non-Latin territories about the Caribbean share a common sociopolitical history with their Latin neighbours in the region, the term Latin America and the Caribbean may be used.[17]
- In a more literal definition, which remains faithful to the original usage, Latin America designates all of those countries and territories in the Americas where a Romance language (i.e., languages derived from Latin, and hence the name of the region) is spoken: Spanish, Portuguese, and French, and the creole languages based upon these. Although French-influenced areas of the Americas would include Quebec, this region is hardly ever considered part of Latin America, since its history is too closely intertwined with Canada.



If you read the last one...it seems that Sotomayor might NOT be the first latina USSC justice.

Benjamin N. Cardozo...common Portuguese name.

Here's my analysis. ...about Latino.

When somebody says "Latino" they're almost invariably talking about ones from South America, the West Indies. Okay, they speak Spanish, a Latin descendant language, but how is a 100% Italian not considered "latino"? Or why is it that some "race" boxes say "white, non hispanic" because a 100% white Spaniard is considered Latino?

http://www.carolinah...=1&d=1243457236

this is Latium, the cradle of Latin. It's not in South America, it's not even in Spain. It's in Italy, just south of Rome. Here is where Latin originated and if it wasn't for the expansion of the Roman Empire Latin would have never reached the Iberian peninsula and develop into Spanish or Portuguese.

So as far as who has the purest "Latin Blood", Latin Europeans (Portuguese, Italians, French, Spanish, Romanians) have plenty more than their South American counterparts, but Italians are by far the purest. Perhaps a more accurate description would be Mestizo for most of the "Latinos" who have mixed American Indian and European ancestry. For how many times I've heard a South American who looks pure Native American called "latino" moreso than an Italian or Sicilian like me, this is wrong. But it's just another example of Anglo-Saxon American misconception in the western world.
