Ruby Aguirre thinks the term “Latino” is too vague.
The term is a blanket descriptor to describe a group of people that often share a language, but don’t always share culture. It’s often used interchangeably with the word “Hispanic,” which is used in the United States census.
“I was confused on how to fill out the census, because what is my race?” the Sacramento voter asked. “It’s a tricky question — are we Hispanic? Are we Latino?”
