Frank, are they Hispanic islands? No they aren't. You guys are confusing geographic proximity with what I'm saying. Being Latin is a nationalistic/cultural thing..not a geographical thing.

But the point I was making, is that by putting Brazil in the equation, you take out the cultural aspect of 'Latino' and make it Geographic, which you admit yourself, it is not.

Yep. Even if you never had a class of spanish in your life Iīm pretty sure that any good portuguese speaker can understand well 80% or more of a text written in spanish......without a problem.
You guys mentioned a point that I donīt know as well, about countries like Jamaica. Iīm pretty sure that Haiti counts as a part of Latin America though because French also is a Latin derived language, which was the reason to why is named Latin America (Spain, Portugal and France in the case of Haiti).....
If Iīm not mistaken anyway.....like I said before we are taught in school that we are Latin Americans, I donīt know about the others....

nah, all euro languages are from latin.
i would have thought has something to do with the fact some of the countries are in north america so saying south wouldn't be accurate, so the name latin america came about because there was no word to describe the grouping of countries with the similar racial makeup.
but you from there so i aint telling i am logical guessing

not at all. from what i know latino's have a mixture of spanish/portugese and indigenous ancestry. or if african descendents can be called latino i was chattin shit and guadaloupe ect would all be latin countries

what i meant is that anywere needs a name. If the word Britain didn't exist before england scotland ect it would have had to been invented sometime.

No way, itīs much more vast than that......
Iīm not exaggerating when I say that there is people with ancestry from every part of the world in Latin American countries....
Locche was from italian ancestry, Jofre from french, Valdez from african ancestry like many other latino fighters like Cervantes, many and many cubans, brazilians like João Henrique (beat Eddie Perkins) etc, etc, etc....
Kid Gavilan is not latino ??

Funnily enough even with all this diversity it is a place where people donīt give too much importance to such things, thatīs why there isnīt even a controversy about if Locche is latino or Valdez is......itīs accepted that both are latin american guys.....
