Natives of French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique, and Puerto Rico are also considered Latino.

Latino is often used interchangebly with the word "Hispanic", although they are not the same. The term "Hispanic" refers to a person from any Spanish-speaking country, whereas "Latino" refers to a person from a country in Latin America.

A Latino can be of any race. For example, an Argentine is Caucasian, and a Dominican is Black. But they are both Latino.
I am from Argentina, so I am Latino.

The best city in Florida; home of some of the chicos y chicas mas calientes in the world! Rated the 9th most dangerous city in the United States, due in large part to the area surrounding the University of South Florida, where crime rates are very high.

There are separate areas of Tampa:
-NORTH TAMPA is primarily lower-middle class Caucasians and Mexican-Americans.
-SOUTH TAMPA is primarily upper class Caucasians.
-INTERBAY, which is the area south of Gandy Boulevard, is primarily African-American and is another haven for crime.
-UNIVERSITY WEST, also known as SUITCASE CITY by the locals, is primarily African-American and Latino, and is the area that has brought Tampa to the #9 slot on the list of Most Dangerous Cities in the USA.
-WEST TAMPA, which includes the areas of BON AIR and COURIER CITY, is a primarily Latino area where not much goes on.
-CARROLLWOOD is a neighborhood which is technically in North Tampa, but it is home to the upper-middle class "yuppies".
-TAMPA PALMS is an area out in the middle of nowhere, almost to the Pasco County line, where a lot of rich people live because they want to be as far as possible away from Tampa because they don't want their precious children to be exposed to real life.
Tampa is the best city in the world.

A talentless, gray haired man who won America's votes by dancing around the stage like a drunken idiot. The American public didn't consider that when they hear him sing on the radio, they won't see the hair or dancing. So, they threw away their votes and he won American Idol, stealing the throne that rightfully belonged to Katharine McPhee, Elliott Yamin, Paris Bennett, or Mandisa.
Taylor Hicks has no talent.

A Florida ID is an alternative to a driver's license - it is an identification card issued to those who can not drive by the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles. It is issued when a person, usually a teenager, has waited a ridiculous amount of time to get their license, and has grown older to the point where they can't legally function without some form of identification. Therefore, they obtain one of these "Florida IDs" and use it in the same way they would use a driver's license for identification purposes.
Dat ain't no permit... dat's a Florida ID!

Girl: Well all men be illin' anyway.
Guy: Shut up La Toya.
