"Italo-compatible". I hate it when I bring a brand new Pope home from the store and he won't plug into my Italian popesocket.

A "Latino" is anyone who self identifies as "Latino".  I, for example, am a German-Latino-American.

WippitGuud: irsquareamads:

Yet we call all black people in America "African-Americans" pretty much regardless of where they were actually born (US, Haiti, etc), so technically wouldn't he be an "Italian-Argentinian"?

What do they call black people in Europe?


Usually by their first name, except in formal occasion, where the surname is usually preceded with title.

It doesn't matter that he was born to Italian parents; the Pope is a trans-Latino: he has been presenting all his life as a Latino and he's clearly capable of passing as a Hispanic. His birth certificate says Argentina. Please use the pronouns and origin adjectives that he prefers.

A Latino is someone who speaks a Latin based language. Like French, or Portuguese.

A Hispanic is someone from the Isle of Hispaniola. 

A Chicano is, hell, something that was made up.  Like Kwanza.
