a word created by the united States Census Bureau that is now commonly used to lump spanish speaking people into one broad category, for better or WORSE. Also this word was incorrectly used today by the officer who decided to identify my "race" on the speeding ticket he gave me.
Officer, without asking me, you wrote down that I was hispanic, but actually I am South Asian.
