(Q24N) We hear people use Hispanic, Latino, and Spanish interchangeably when describing someone’s race, in actuality, all three terms mean very different things.

In this video by Bustle, Youtube personality Kat Lazo clarifies the difference.

In the video, Lazo says “Hispanic is basically based on whether you or your family speak the language of Spanish whereas Latino is focusing more on geographic location, that being Latin America.”

It’s important to note that just because people speak Spanish, it doesn’t mean they’re Spanish. It’s a language, and it’s also a term referring to nationality.

And there you have it. They may just be three words, but they pack quite a punch!
