Hispanic versus Latino(a) versus Chicano Hispanic is rooted in  Hispania , The Roman name for the Iberian  Peninsula ( Iberia  is from Greek). Refers to people who originate  ethnically in the Peninsula (Spain), and by extension, Latin America.  The  film  Brown is the New Green  contends the term  Hispanic  was  artificially invented by politicians* Many Spanish people (from Peninsular Spain) refer to themselves as  White European , and never consider the term  Hispanic  for themselves.  They sometimes use the term  Spaniard  also Some Spanish-speaking individuals do not like the term  Hispanic , or  avoid it since some social circles look down upon Hispanics. Ethnicity  can cross issues of social conflict. The term  Latino  generally refers to people of Hispanic extraction who  were born in the States (and may know no Spanish, or have some  knowledge, or be bilingual) Chicano is an ethnic, political, and cultural term used to refer to some  Mexican – Americans (of Mexican origin)
