'Latino, Si--Hispanic, No'

November 24, 1985

Del Olmo objects to the use of the word Hispanic, and I am just as annoyed by the word he prefers: Latino.

Writing in an English-language newspaper, he quite properly refers to Mejicanos as Mexicans and Cubanos as Cubans, so why should Latins become Latinos?
