Posted @withregram • @huffpost In honor of #LatinxHeritageMonth, were clearing up a common misconception.⁠
⁠
Anyone who uses the words “Latino” and “Hispanic” interchangeably is in for a rude awakening. These terms are often used to describe people of Latin American descent, but their actual meanings are a bit more complicated.⁠
⁠
In short, “Hispanic” focuses on Spanish-speaking origin. This means Spain is included, but Brazil is not because Brazilians speak Portuguese. “Latino” refers to people of Latin American origin. This includes Brazil and excludes Spain.⁠
