What Is in a Name? Hispanic or Latino?

The Latino/Hispanic population is growing in the United States. It is estimated that by 2030, 30% of USA citizens will be of Hispanic descendants. When referring to the Hispanic culture it is common for people to use either Hispanic or Latino without really knowing what are the differences between these two terms. In this video we try to answer two fundamental questions: 1) Is there a difference between these two terms? 2) Can they be used indistinctly?
