Latinos and their families are mistakenly taken as a race instead of a nationality. The fact is that among these groups‚ who emigrated from different countries in the Western Hemisphere‚ there are caucasians‚ blacks‚ native indians‚ asians‚ and other races. We also have different native languages even though Spanish is the most used language. People from Brazil speak Portuguese; those from Haiti speak French. Hispanics also speak Chinese‚ Hebrew‚ Arabic (most I have seen are Lebanese) and other languages.
The majority of the Latinos are typically hard-working family oriented individuals‚ which is the core that this great country of the United States of America was built upon. We practice different religions with Christianity being the majority. It is not uncommon to see Latinos who speak Hebrew; descendants of Jewish Latinos that came to the Latin-American country during WWII to flee the Nazis.
We have a large population of newcomers or first generation Latinos who are not well educated and come to work in the fields. On the other hand‚ we also have a very large group of well educated people who came fleeing political or religious persecution from their countries or wanting to have the chance to evolve and properly support their families.
Most of us left our countries because something there we did not like.
