Americans seem unable to differentiate among:

1. Cultures
2. Ethnic groups
3. Linguistic groups
4. Nationalities

and

race.

Any mention of these means race to most Americans.

LOL!

Linguistically it does.
Calling populations which speak a Romance language,''Latino/Latina'' is a new world (Americas) phenomenon so such terms do not apply to Romance speaking Europeans or Africans (Latin Old World).

''Latino/Latina''= Latin American

As much as it annoys your anti Hispanic AA sensibilities many Romanians are very proud in referring to themselves as Latins.
In Spanish it means referring to themselves as Latinos in the general sense of the word.:)

Excerpt:

The term latino (feminine latina) in the Romance languages, such as Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish, literally translates as "Latin".(The cognate French term is latin, not latino.) Portuguese dictionaries define the demonym latino to refer to natives of Romance-speaking nations influenced by Roman civilization, and to the natives or inhabitants of ancient Latium (modern Lazio).[32][33] Italian dictionaries define the demonym latino as: the ancient Latins and Romans, and their language, Latin, as well as the neo-Latin nations.[34][35]

The dictionary of the Real Academia EspaƱola defines ten meanings for latino, including the ancient peoples of Latium and the modern Romance-speaking European and American nations.[36] In these languages, latino, just like any other demonym, is by convention not capitalized

In other words you're stupid, completely ignorant and prone to quoting Wikipedia.

Wikipedia provides reliable sources dimwit.
That your anti-Latino racism blinds you to their legitimacy is your problem.

A little correction here.
Is "A venit iarna" not "venid", even if sometimes the "t" sound like "d". In the South West Romania ,Oltenia, is "Venira iarna".

Both you and @Bigsmoke are right here. Yes, romanians are proud of their latin base lingo. But, from a "racial" (whateva that mean) point of view they're similar with their neighbours. Latino/a in our days means what U.S. racial policies teach us, not what it really ment.

I am not claiming that Romanians are Latin Americans.
As for racial, all Latin Americans aren't mixed.
If you don't know that then your education is suspect.

I react to attitudes not race. I don't believe that difference of opinion justifies violence. Only the prost behave that way. De ce?
Because they are prost and don't inteleg that such behavior is a sign of being prost.
