Differences Between AAs + Latinos

1. AAs are race-focused ---Latinos are culture focused
2. AAs are one race ---Latinos includes all races.
3. AA don' ID with England--Latinos ID with Spain.
4. AAs are monolingual--Latinos in USA are bilingual.
5. AAs harbor racial resentment against Anglos--Latinos don't.

BTW

When a Latino clarifies issues relating to Spain it doesn't mean he believes he's a Spaniard.
Among Latinos Spain is referred to as La Madre Patria-the Mother Country just as AAs see Africa as theirs. Accordingly Spain is defended when non-Latinos-such as AAs, insult it.
As simple as that.

In a cultural sense, all Latinos do. That doesn't mean they reject other cultural influences which vary in significance from one LA to another. Argentines, for example are quite different on the average from Mexicans.

European heritage predominates in one while Native American is very influential in the other. But regardless of such differences Spain is always spoken of as the Madre Patria in all.

Mexicans take great pride in being mestizo.

BTW
Are AAs black worshippers?

AAs doesn't = the entire black race.

Latin American can't be considered a race because it includes unmixed members of all races as well as mixed ones. Your attitude indicates typical American ignorance of world socities.
