Missing countries on the list[edit]

Falkands Island, Guayana (non-French), Suriname. Daniel Souza (talk) 19:52, 19 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Quebec too. (talk) 12:40, 27 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Quebec is not in Latin America, at least not according to most definitions of it. Nn88nn88 (talk) 23:40, 11 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Technically, it could count, but traditionally it doesn't. I guess you could say the same thing about European nations. Evenite (talk) 05:24, 14 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Funny how you always want to overlook Non- lEuropean Countries that are NOT in the Americas. Angola Macau,Goa,east Timor, Mozambique, equatorial guinea to name a few & by the way Quebec is not a country! What in the world is quebec canada have to do with ecuador peru? You can make a bigger case of philippines and guam as big more "latino/Hispanic' but Quebec is as white as it comes. You all want to make Argentina whiter than Canada which is absolutely abomination. In that case let's make Los Angeles Las Vegas & Texas "Latin America" then If you want to play the technicality card. Because los Angeles Is sure as hell ALOT more hispanic than quebec ever was and ever will be. Not to mention it's close to the Mexican border whereas Quebec is thousands of miles in the northeast. By the way, French is spoken in northern New England and Louisiana or are we going to count That as "Latino too"? look at how ridiculous you sound. Ku klux Klan in that region used to speak Cajun French.Even the names in the southwest are mostly Spanish yet you conveniently pretend to overlook it. 2607:FB91:184:BAE:B9C8:7498:69C3:608A (talk) 16:27, 16 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Well given the fact that Quebec is not a country it's not going to be included. But yes, Quebec has heavy Latin/Latino influences as a providence. Quebec is about as "Latino" as Los Angeles. It has nothing to do with being "White" but being a descendant of a population that uses Latin languages in the Americas. There is White Non-Latino people in South America (Entire isolated German communities in Brazil and Chile), there is also Amerindian people who wouldn't be considered "Latino" either, sense they speak native languages. There is also plenty of White, African and Amerindian "Latinos". The "Latino" designator has 0 to do with race. A White German from Chile, an Amerindian Mexican,an African from Ecuador, and an Asian from Peru could all be considered "Latinos" if they all speak Spanish even though they are all different races.

Improve sentence logic/grammar, and add countries' languages[edit]

The sentence "In addition, countries not former colonial powers in the region, but many of which had populations immigrate, there are part of ECLAC, including Italy [...]" is not structurally sound (and also hard to read).

Suggested: "In addition, a number of countries not former ..., but many of which had..., [delete:there] are part of ECLAC, including ..." To be implemented (or further developed) by someone who can verify that the proposal has the correct meaning and is well formed.

Also, the table of countries should include a column of (dominant) language, since that is what assigns countries to the region names in question in the first place! (talk) 20:38, 13 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
