Dude where's my libertád?[edit]

There's no sources for the banner and, specially, it's moto "Justicia, Paz, Unión, Fraternidád" (I find this somewhat disturbing, as the motto doesn't mention "freedom" as the vast majorty of similar mottos). I'll flag the article for references. NeedABrain 02:28, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

poor reasoning[edit]

If this is your reasoning for flagging the article for references, it's a very poor one. Being displeased with the fact that Liberty is not included in the flag is not a reason to flag it, and especially not the entire article. By doing that, you make it seem like you're flagging something because of a personal preference. I'm removing the tag (though I'll leave the 'citation needed' in the picture caption). 19:59, 6 April 2006 (UTC)

Found it[edit]

Maybe you are right, but I was more conceived about the existence of the banner itself and its motto. I found an external reference in Spanish, so I've placed it in a new 'external links' section and unflagged the image and this discussion list. NeedABrain 00:07, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

very unappropriate expression[edit]

The expression "latin nationalism" is very very unappropriate expression to describe a movement that refers only to the Hispanic cultures and peoples of the Americas. Since this movement doesn't take pride in [[latin culture], culture rooted in Rome (south Europe cultures), but in hispano-American cultures only. Especially when taking pride in what is not latin in those countries such as indigenous or black african herency. see Latin Union, latin Europe, latin peoples, latin culture --Fabb leb 19:51, 23 May 2006 (UTC)

The word Latino often becomes "Latin" when used as an adjective.--Rockero 20:16, 23 May 2006 (UTC)

References Needed[edit]

Nothing here is referenced - There is some degree of truth here, but a lot seems innaccurate.

Latin doesn't refer to race... And I don't know what Chicanos have to do with "Latin Nationalism".

Also, let's not confuse the words Hispanic with Latin or Latino. Deepstratagem 19:54, 30 June 2006 (UTC)

This is U.S. Centric. There are no Latin American organizations listed here. Perhaps the article should be titled Latin American Immigrant politics in U.S. Deepstratagem 07:33, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

Yes, this article is written completely backwards. The first nationalist movements in Latin America were anti-colonial. Pan-Americanism (Bolivarianism) was an important part of those movements. Mexican American ethnic nationalism didn't come about until well after WWII. I disagree with the rename--this article just needs to be purged and rewritten from sources that actually discuss Latin nationalism.--Rockero 08:05, 2 July 2006 (UTC)
I Agree. Deepstratagem 23:25, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

Latin/o or Spanish-Speaking[edit]

I just want to ask: is this only about spanish-speaking peoples? I read above that latino often becomes latin when used as an adjective, but latino is an adjective. If we go by the meaning Latino has as only Latin American (I think that it isn't being used in the Latin european meaning in this article), why is Spain coloured and Brazil is not? If we go by the Latin word, in English that word refers to the latin europeans. Maybe the name of the article should be changed? Thank you.

Is this article the result of KKK paranoia?[edit]

It's hateful, incoherent nonsense. SamEV 05:57, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

What stupid article, I would recommend it for deletion , it doesnt meet encyclopaedic criterias.

Also there are NO SOURCES to this "latin american nationalism" (which i NEVER heard of before , even though i studied spanish/latin american politics and history.--EuroHistoryTeacher (talk) 21:08, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

I think it's long overdue for deletion. SamEV (talk) 21:12, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

How long will the charade continue? When the article was nominated for deletion a year ago it was decided to keep it. In the end, all that was left were three statements which had all been challenged for two years. I challenged them. And so I've just removed them.

Most of the people who voted keep are presumably waiting for someone else to write an article about this subject. It won't be me, though. I have nothing but disdain for this nonsense.

And apropos, if the subject exists, but is not notable, it shouldn't have an article. Right now this is but a disambiguation page. But even that is too much. SamEV (talk) 23:00, 1 January 2010 (UTC)


Why do people think of Argentina as Hispanic hello there are more whites there then in America!! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bakerboy4 (talkcontribs) 20:31, 26 September 2006

Firstly, Hispanic is not a race; it is actually a word that describes people associated with Spain. Secondly, there are, in fact, more whites in the United States than in Argentina. See United_States_Census,_2000#Population_profile. Picaroon9288 20:51, 26 September 2006 (UTC)
Hispanic is an ethnicity not a race.--Jersey Devil 02:43, 1 October 2006 (UTC)
