Latino culture is a very wide-encompassing, diverse thing. That's why it's hard to speak with any real authority on anything Hispanic, Latino or Mexican-American because you're lumping an awful lot of people into these little narrow categories. Not all Hispanics are browned-skin, as the blond haired blue-eyed folks descended directly from Spain (sometimes in enclaves of Mexico) will tell you. (In Spanish). Not all Latin folks are from Mexico (as any Puerto Rican, Cuban or Dominican will tell you, likely with a baseball bat to your head).
Nevertheless, the fear of making broad generalizations has never stopped me before, especially since the International Institute for Hispanic/Latino/Mestizo/Norteño and Ricky Martin Fan Club asked me to compile a list to let the world know about our contributions to world culture. Here are some things you should be thanking our (mostly) brown asses, and things that we apologize for unleashing upon you.
