1) it groups Latinxs together with spaniards. I’ve heard on many accounts that many spaniards dislike Latinxs and think that they did us a ” favor” by colonizing us. We’re different from spaniards and many of us don’t want to be grouped with our colonizers.
2) it excludes latinxs who dont speak spanish at all or spanish as their native language like brazilians! Hispanic refers to people who are from Spanish speaking countries/speak Spanish as their native language.
Someone once told me: “It will be easier for you to get into graduate school cause you are not white”
I told them: “And you are more likely to get the job, whether you go to graduate school or not, because you are white”
