chicano vs latino vs hispanic :

chicano or latino or hispanic

“Chicano” means “Mexican-American,” and not all the people denoted bythis term like it. When speaking of people living in the US from various otherSpanish-speaking countries, “Chicano” is an error for “Latino” or“Hispanic.” Only “Hispanic” can include people with a Spanish as well aswith a Latin American heritage; and some people of Latin American heritage object to it as ignoring the Native American element in that population. Only “Latino” could logicallyinclude Portuguese-speaking Brazilians, though that is rarely done.
