How Latinos/Latinas/Latinx people became Hispanic #HispanicHeritageMonth #LatinxHeritageMonth

The word Hispanic is vaguely defined and applied extremely broad. Different terms grow and shrink in popularity to try and define a massive group[s] of people. NPR takes an honest look at the origins and entymology of Hispanic Heritage month.

But it’s not too late to pose the following thorny questions: What’s the harm in lumping together roughly 62 million people with complex identities under a single umbrella? Is a blanket pan-ethnic term necessary to unite and reflect a shared culture that is still largely (infuriatingly) excluded from mainstream popular culture? Or the more basic question: ¿Por que Hispanic?

But approached in the right way, he adds, even these stories can be ultimately seen as happy. “Because the historic struggles of Chicanos, Mexican-Americans, other Latinos are happy stories … because only through those struggles have we been able to achieve more social justice in this country, more education.”
