“The USA is an awesome place. I believe it’s a nation founded on (and always perfecting) the idea that we can all learn to get along. But in this great human experiment, I think we learn something beyond tolerance. We actually find ourselves, as Americans, embracing aspects of different cultures, both consciously and subconsciously. As free people, we can adopt or simply enjoy cultures other than those that we are born into.”*
That’s what being a Gringo Latino is all about. More specifically, it might be someone who is married to a Latina/o, studied Spanish, travelled through Latin America and speaks Spanish (or Spanglish?). Or, it could be someone who believes in the fusion of cultures, who is truly multicultural and can switch between American and Latin American cultures as well as translate between and speak both the English and Spanish languages.
