    LATIN is a language, and comes from ROME... therefore it's European.

    If you're asking about "Latinos / Latina" - it is NOT a racial term, but an ethnic / linguistic term.

    It is used to designate ethnolinguistic groups in the United States with origins in the countries of Latin America or the Iberian peninsula - SO, it would, in the main, refer to South / Central America since that is the point of origin for most IN the United States.

    EDIT... after a second peak at numbers... it comes from North America in the main since 63% of the "Latino" population in the United States is from Mexico which is a part of North America.

    Difficult query! They oftentimes do do a Europe Vs leisure of the world sport and the rest of the arena workforce, if i am not improper, commonly wins it, in order that must reply the factor. I simply believe they have better gelled avid gamers and the soccer played in South america is very equivalent and the total nice higher in terms of number of gamers. So, judging with the aid of those Europe-ROW games i'm going for Europe losing.

    it comes from europe, latin is an old European language, spanish, french, italian, romanian and portuguese all come from Latin and are european languages..mexican is a nationality, arab is like latino/hispanic, a none sense umbrella term that shouldn't exist.

    latin americans come from all races

    they're either white europeans, amerindians sort of like native americans, africans or asians, or even arabs of latin american descent.

    saying your race is latin american, is like saying your race is american.
