I don’t think these people understand that being latin or hispanic doesn’t exactly have anything to do with one’s skin color. We’re quite varied in that regard.
There’s a misconception that someone who doesn’t look Indigenous to a specific country (i.e, Mexican -> Mayan) isn’t Hispanic/Latino.
Funny because the other day I was told by someone that I’m too white to be Puerto Rican, go figure. Little do people know that Puerto Ricans are a diverse group of people, having a mix of Spanish, African, and Indigenous (Taino) blood. Some have more of one than the others so we all look different. But Puerto Rican all the same.
