Hispanic American encompasses a rich group of different cultures. Mexican Americans, Cubans, Puerto Ricans, and Guatemalans are different groups within Hispanic American. This is a summary of their linguistic, political, social, economic, religious, and familial conventions or statuses.

This leads to grouping different subgroups into the same social class. There are many Hispanic Americans that are born here not all immigrated here. Guatemalans prefer not to form a group or be part of a subgroup. They do not conform nor do they have to. They tend to use American only or before Hispanic, but Cubans prefer Cuban over Hispanic.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
