The Difference Between the Terms Latino and Hispanic, and How They Overlap | The Oprah Magazine

latino and hispanic

Believe it or not, there is a difference between the words  Latino and Hispanic, according to the Associate Pres (AP) Stylebook. Not only do the words have their own definition, but each word can be used in a different way. According to the AP’s distinction, when it comes to the Hispanic culture in particular, to debate Latino vs Hispanic is to barely skim the surface of the centuries that led up on how we have come to define these terms today.

David Bowles, a writer, translator, and professor at the University of Texas Río Grande Valley, tells us that the definitions are primarily concerned with geography/location. To be considered Latino/Latina/Latinx, you must have come from a Latin American country.

On the other hand, “Latinx is an ethnic and cultural category whereas Hispanic is a linguistic division,” according to Dr. Luisa Ortiz Pérez, Executive Director of Vita-Activa.org. People who live in or are descended from a Spanish-speaking culture can define themselves as Hispanic. For example, Spanish people (people from Spain) could be described as Hispanic, but not Latino/Latina/Latinx.

So, how do you identify? Latino or Hispanic? Both?

What Innovation Looks Like for Black and Latin Female Founders | BRIT+CO

women innovation

Women of color are leading entrepreneurship and innovation. They are the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in the United States. Although they are growing, they are still facing obstacles and difficulties in reaching their maximum potential due to a lack of capital. With this capital, a right combination of resources and community, can develop an innovative space created for a pioneer.

Women demonstrate, not only they have the potential to be leaders, yet that they are leaders. They are leaders all over our communities – in businesses, in schools, in politics, in hospitals, in homes, and so many other places where women are leading their arenas to excellence. Many have had to achieve these levels of success without the right combinations of support. Just imagine what could happen when women receive all the financial and staffing support they need to reach their visions.

Inclusion in entrepreneurship is a must because through diversity, inclusion, and equality, we can engage the world, Through incorporating an intercultural contextualized marketing strategy in entrepreneurship, we can properly engage our target markets and reach our maximum potential.

Lessons on Diversity From a Century Ago Still Resonate | CSUF NEWS SERVICE

What is Patriotism?

Saturday is the celebration of our nation’s Independence. It is a day that for many means fireworks and BBQs. However, for others, it is a memory of the incredible fight, the lives that were taken, in order for all that would inhabit the land to live freely and no longer be owned by another; that we would have the freedom and liberty to rule ourselves. This article, written by CSUF News Service, details the long road individuals from diverse backgrounds have had since the birth of our nation.

This is historical diversity.

The article begins with a quote from Ralph Ellison in 1972, “I believe in diversity, and I think the real death of the United States will be when everyone is just alike.” Undoubtedly, a powerful statement. Real death of an entire nation could result from similarities and clones. What will keep the country moving forward, as it has, is the development and integration of our differences into creative strategies for continuous growth.

The reality is cultural diversity is vital today, just as much as it was a century ago. This overview of the work and platform of philosopher Horace Kallen details his stance on cultural pluralism during the 1900s. Besides being a time when “Americanism” and the demonizing of people of color erupted, this philosopher published articles and a book to demonstrate the power and beauty of diversity in America. Kallen, a Caucasian male born in Boston, knew the importance of diversity and how it would revolutionize our world. He became friends with fellow cultural diversity enthusiast, Alain Locke – an African American male. Together, they formed a friendship that would intensify and defy all stereotypical bonds. Despite the color of their skins and the origins of their ethnicity, their friendship empowered others to celebrate cultural differences and embrace pluralism as the highest form of patriotism.

How will you demonstrate your patriotism on Saturday, as you celebrate Independence Day?
