Hispanic: Literally meaning Spanish. The Latin word for Spain is HISPANIA like the Spanish word for Spain is ESPANA. So scientifically speaking a douche bag white person from Spain like Cortez would be classified as Hispanicus. Since people don't speak Latin all too often it easy to ignorantly use the word to describe and or classify native Americans from places like Mexico, Guatemala etc. just because they speak the puke language of Spain.
There is a Hispanic male driving a stolen car on the 101. haha
