1) Well, it depends on who you talk to. Ignorant people just say people from Latin America are latino. But if you talk to people from Europe and Latin America, you learn that it's people of LATIN decent. AKA t3h Romanz, lolololol.

Yes, people of LATIN decent. For example, in Europe, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, and believe it or not, Romania. Of course you have like parts of Switzerland and like Southern Germany. And basically Latin America, since they were all raped by Spaniards and/or Portuguese settlers, so they're Latinos too.

Not to be confused with HISPANIC, which is of just Spanish/Portuguese decent. Because we know they're the same because they're in the same peninsula.

Either way, people have different definitions of what a "Latino" person is. In short, it's a person of Latin decent.

ANother debate is whether if Quebec becomes its own country if it would be included as part of Latin America. Seeing how it's of Latin decent, and it's in North America, I personally don't see why not. And don't say that it's entirely different from other Latin American countries, because all Latin American countries are different. Compare Argentina to Brazil. Completely different cultures.

2) Someone very passionate during sex. AKA Italians and French men.
1) Guy 1: I'm Italian, does that make me Latino and can I get scolarship money plz?
Guy 2: Dude whatever, we're all humans.

2) I slept with a Latino last night.

new world latin america pan idenity or Latino for short, is an individual whose culture or blood is derived from the romance world, in other words of south european/iberian orgin. all latino counries share similar past, culture, iberian heritage, history, Independence, & influences..which are found to make these new world nations to be like brothers

latinos are a complex set of peoples of diverse origins, whose main origins are Europeans, Amerindians, Africans, and others in that order. However, the largest majorities are not "pure" peoples but mixed, in which the mestizo (Euro-native american mix) is the numerous majority in the Hispanic American world, while criollos (pure euro Iberians) are the 2nd largest population after, tri-racials and mullatos are quite numerous in the Caribbean, and the South Americans northern coasts too. However, in matter of identity, Latin Americans are nationalistic, and identify themselves more with the country they live than with abstract races and people from overseas.

for most Latin Americans and Latinos the concept of mestizaje (mixed)— the blending of two or more cultures to produce a third — is so fundamental a part of identity as to be "like breathing."

Diverse people who know how to make killer music, amazing food, and dance like nobody's business. Extremely attractive. Punish using una chancla. Racially united under nationalism and customs, no matter what those who try to classify us eugenically have to say.
Carlos: I am black and from Puerto Rico-Soy Latino.
Maria: I am white and from Argentina-Soy Latina.
Pedro: I am indian and from Guatemala-Soy Latino.
