From religion to art and cuisine Hispanic Americans have a huge influence on the diversity in the United States. A Spanish speaking person, from Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba, and the Dominican is represented as Latino or Hispanic to most. The content of this essay is to provide information on the political, linguistic, economic, religious and familial principles of four Hispanic American groups and how they add to the expanding variety of American culture. Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, and Dominican represent the largest growing portion of Hispanic population in the U.S. and are characterized by the many differences and similarities in their various life aspects. Mexican Americans presently have established themselves more in economic, social, linguistic and politics. They represent one of the largest immigrant groups in the U.S. Their tradition dates back further than other American groups. According to American Community Survey, a number of more than twenty eight million Hispanics are Mexican Americans which represents more than half of the total Hispanic population. The family is the single most important part of the life of Hispanics. The traditional concepts appear to be changing toward a more American standard with increased exposure to American society. Despite a strong pride of Hispanic heritage and culture, the primary language of Mexican Americans is English but their religion is mainly Roman Catholic. Although, many traditional cultural patterns still exist; Mexican Americans have strong ties to their home is the reason of their slow rate of conforming. Today many Mexican Americans are not excepted by their homeland because of the fact that many feel they are not Mexican enough but they are not completely excepted by Americans either.
