    When it's not? I have this friend(more like an acquaintance) that is latino. She has very European features - straight light brown hair, thin nose slight tan skin etc... but she says she's not white but latina. This confuses me because Latina isn't a race? Like can't you not be black and latina? or asian and latina? I am confused because if she isn't white then what exactly is she?

    I'm just wondering lol

    technically latina is a race, but you are correct, Latinos are southern European immigrants from a while back, who if they live in central/south America or move from there to north America, are called Latinos.
    'Latin' as in Roman/Italian
