  • Xincas
  • Garifunas

  • Avatar CLARENCE R Are Latinos an ethnic or racial group? Or is it a bunch of cultures made up of different racial groups?
    Apr 08, 2008 by CLARENCE R | Posted in Other - Cultures & Groups

    I Know that Latinos can be anything depending what country they are from. For example, many people in Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Brazil, and Venezuela are of African descent. The countries argentina, uruguay, and ch …is mixed (Indian and European of mostly Spanish/Iberian) and unique to the Latin American countries. I do agree that Mestizos are a racial group, but I don't think Latino is a racial group. What do the rest of you think?
