The Next Few Weeks, We Celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month
Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15th to October 15th. During this time, we celebrate the history, cultures, and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central American, and South America.
Do you know the difference between the references Hispanic, Latino/Latina, and Latinx?
Hispanic refers to native Spanish speakers or those with Spanish-speaking ancestry.
For example, a person from Chile’ is Hispanic because Spanish is the primary language spoken there. However, a person from Brazil would not be Hispanic, because Portuguese is the primary language there. Latino/Latina refers to people of Latin American descent
Therefore, a person from Ecuador is considered Latino or Latina, but a person from Spain is not. And Latinx is a gender-neutral alternative to Latino/Latina.
Thought of the Week
Wildcats, let’s think before we act. Destroying restrooms has never been and never will be something to be proud of. Think for yourself rather than follow a silly national trend.
