Are French people Latino?

If Latino means you speak a language derived from Latin, then doesn’t that include the French?

* * *

I think I found the answer. In the U.S., Latino is actually short for latinoamericano, that is people from the Americas who speak a language derived from Latin, regardless of their racial origin.

So that means the whitest blondest person from Sweden should be classified as Latino if he or she grew up in Mexico speaking Spanish. Or a Japanese person in the same situation. (Cameron Diaz fits into this category. She’s pretty darn white, but also Latino, or maybe half Latino. Do people stop being Latino when they stop speaking Spanish? Will Cameron Diaz’s very white descendants be Hispanic in perpetuity because of one Cuban ancestor who in turn was descended entirely from white Europeans?)

So the next question is this: Can someone be Latino and still have white privilege?

  1. French is a Romance Language, so yes, all Romantic languages are derived from Latin, including Romanian, spoken by Slavic proles who somehow, became Latin infused.

    Ok, what, who's this again?

    July 30, 2019 at 4:51 PM

    • No, it’s the other way around – Romanians are Latin proles who got infused (enriched? LOL) with Slavic culture.

  2. For that matter, Italian and Romanian too. Heck, there is a romance language called Romansh that is spoken primarily in Switzerland. You can be Swiss and be Latino!

    Also Arabs are Semites, but we don’t call people who are anti-Arab anti-Semitic.

      • English is full of Latin-derived words. It started with William The Conquerer. He and his crew were from France but were descended from Vikings. Still, they were then speaking a version of French.

        So for several centuries, the peasants stayed speaking their Germanic language (it’s more complicated than that since Vikings invaded Great Britain too, including a whole bunch from what is now Denmark, who took over a whole section of England. It is believed that it was this that caused English to lose grammatical gender)

        Anyway, French was the language of the elites for centuries. French was considered more classy. Even as late as our era, France was thought of as being #1 in fashion and stuff. I’d say the influx of Muslims has finally destroyed that.

        So English is well over half borrowed words, mostly from French. Given this wholesale colonization of our language can’t we be considered Latinos too?

      • English is not mostly latin derived words. It doesn’t have latin cases or verb tenses. It has german cases and verb tenses. The cognate rate german to english is much higher than the cognate rate of latin to english. 90% of the most commonly used english words are german derived not latin. English also has phrasal verbs just like german, but latin does not. And on and on. There are lots of words in english that are latin derived that are somewhat redundant because the latin based words were added but the original english words weren’t dropped, like “put the fire out” as well as “extinguish the fire”.

      • @not too late As someone who has studied both, I beg to differ.

        The most commonly used words are Germanic. But it doesn’t take long to learn them in any language as they are so common.

        The “s” ending for plurals exists in German but it’s not the most common. It’s widespread in French. You can still see the old Germanic plural ending in “children” and “oxen” and that’s about it.

        The problem is with the large number of words that medieval peasants didn’t use. Here’s an example and this is extremely common scenario:

        English publication
        French publication
        Spanish publicación
        German Veröffentlichung

  4. Does being Jewish confer any victim Pokemon points or is Jewishness tantamount to being a stale pale male oppressor in the who-whom sweepstakes?

    Oswald Spengler

    July 30, 2019 at 5:10 PM

    • I believe this has been covered before. Being Jewish converts a tiny number of victim Pokemon points but only in comparison to Gentile whites; when groups much higher on the victim ladder like blacks, Muslims, or trannies are in the mix, Jews are seen as the same as Gentile whites. In response to Lion’s question of whether someone can be Latino and still have white privilege, I would say that works the same way. “White Hispanics” have a tiny bit of victim status compared to non-hispanic whites, but compared to groups much higher in the victim hierarchy, they are for all practical purposes lumped in with non-hispanic whites.

  6. From Diaz’s wikipedia: She recalled her upbringing as frugal, stating: “I had amazing parents, they were awesome. We weren’t privileged—very much the opposite. My family would collect [soda] cans to turn in for extra money, because $20 meant something to us.

    Do the PC police know she’s not “checking her privilege”? I’ll bet SC hates her for being poor as a child.

  9. There is also the category of latine or Romance languages that descends from a form of Latin spoken by lay people at the end of Roman Empire : Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Romanian, Catalan and French are the main Latin languages.

    French has been strongly influenced by Celtic languages (Galo-roman) and it’s the least « Latin » sounding of all Latine languages.

    At the same times, English is a germanic language that has at least 50% influence of latine languages in its vocabulary : 1) Old Norman (a Latin language from Normandy) 2) Latin itself 3) French

    As for the people, the DNA of German and French was the same before the 1870 when France started to get huge numbers of immigrants from Europe and then from Africa (starting 1950). English have quite distinctive traits from having been isolated so long on their Island. Same for Icelandic.

    Reich considers that differences among European are small. The 2 most homogeneous populations are 1) Finnish people (geography) and 2) ashkenazim (cast system). But ashkenazim are middle easterners with some franco-germano-italian blood from their history when they escaped the Roman destruction after the Wars against Judea and the Diaspora.


    July 30, 2019 at 5:41 PM

    • But ashkenazim are middle easterners with some franco-germano-italian blood from their history when they escaped the Roman destruction after the Wars against Judea and the Diaspora.

      European Jews (both Ashkenazi and Sephardic) are 55-60% European. 80% to 90% of their European DNA is Southern European, primarily Italian. The rest is a bit of German and Slavic, mostly for Ashkenazim, but also smaller amounts for Sephardic.

    • Admixture with Europeans mostly came to a stop around ~1500 years, which corresponds with the time period when the Roman Empire outlawed conversion to Judaism.

    • As for the people, the DNA of German and French was the same before the 1870 when France started to get huge numbers of immigrants from Europe and then from Africa (starting 1950).

      Genetically, the French are an almost even 50-50 split between Northern and Southern Europeans.

      Physically, they are harder to distinguish from other Europeans because their white ancestry is more heterogeneous than geographically isolated European peoples such as the Irish. This makes it possible for French to vary in appearance from blonde to more stereotypically “de Gaulle” looking.

  12. Wasn’t there a japanese president of peru?

    My father was born/ raised in south america and is completely european, as am I. I did an ancestrydna out of curiosity. Especially back when my dad was a kid there were insular european communities in south america with their own schools (in their native language), bars, soccer clubs etc.. Things are more mixed now.

    I for one was quite confused about what I was growing up. I didn’t speak english until I went to school and never spoke it at home. I wasn’t even sure if we were american, even though my mom is DAR.

    If my kids are to be considered latino that would be hilarious since they’re tracing paper white and don’t speak a word of spanish. My oldest took it in high school and he’s painful to listen to.

    If you ask my dad what he is he usually says argentine, so I guess birthplace beats ethnicity.

    Interesting anecdote, there are still insular german communities in brazil that are regularly scouted by modeling agencies. Gisele Bundchen hails from one of them.

  13. “Are French people Latino”

    In Canada, the French speaking population of Quebec is poorer, less educated and less employable than English Canadians and immigrant Canadians as a whole. Quebec is also the most left-leaning part of Canada and has by far the most corruption in its political and corporate spheres. It is also the province least accepting of immigrants, Muslims and Jews. If it weren’t for massive waves of investments in the province from successive Federal governments, Quebec might resemble a northern Louisiana. Having said that; the white parts of Quebec are also some of the most peaceable parts of the country to live in.


    July 30, 2019 at 6:25 PM

    • Québec bashing is popular among Anglophone Canadians like guido bashing is to readers of this blog. Lion once made an analogy that Québec is like Staten Island, with its residents who have lower educational attainment and lower incomes, hence its cheaper housing in comparison to Manhattan. Staten Island is indeed a cultural and an intellectual desert, and there is no dispute about that. But Québec is indiscernible to a non-French Canadian. One of its early settlers and founders attended the same Jesuit school as Rene Descartes in France, and founded the University of Laval. The province also scores higher in math and science from K-12, higher than Ontario.

      There is so much sh!t said about the Québécois that most of them are half baked truths. Québec is only a province of 8 million vs Ontario of 14 million. I can’t even think of a famous Jewish Canadian from Ontario or any other Anglo Prole region of Canada, but there’s Leonard Cohen, who’s plastered all over Montréal.

      Furthermore, I was shocked to see a few Arabic language bookstores in the suburbs of Montréal, which you do not find in Brooklyn with its community of Levantines (the White passing Arabs).

      Ok, what, who's this again?

        My daughter married a man whose father is from a northern Alberta town called Girouxville, a small French-speaking town. The father speaks English with an accent. He married an Anglo woman he met at university in Edmonton, Alberta. He is a retired engineer.

      The French deported all of their native proles to Quebec and Louisiana in the 18th and 19th century.

      Hence, those of French descent in Quebec and Louisiana are dumber than native French.

      However, Canada has more intelligent Scottish than America, apparently because Scottish Royalists escaped to Canada after the Revolutionary War.

      • Ok, but Québec isn’t a dumb province in Canada. It’s a pretty good place for an entity that isn’t Anglo with its parasitic arrangement of 3rd world immigrants. French Canadians don’t need to import a large contingent of 3rd world darkies and Asiatics to sustain a SWPL class, because Anglo proles are too lazy and entitled to serve their SWPL masters.

        As a rule, dumber people/proles are less healthy. The Scottish Canadians dominate Newfoundland and Novia Scotia, and both provinces score much lower in health measures than Québec.

      • “Canada has more intelligent Scottish than America, apparently because Scottish Royalists escaped to Canada after the Revolutionary War.”
        Yes absolutely, Americans who were loyal to the English monarchy decamped to Canada after the war, making Canada that much more royalist and making the US that much less. This event marked an important turning point in how the two countries started viewing themselves. The US became individualistic, doggedly revolutionary and relativity gritty. And Canada adopted the motto of Peace, Order and Good Government. Canadians and Americans are both amongst the nicest people in the world, but when held up for comparison, Canadians sometimes exhibit a distinctly patrician arrogance, which in present times manifests itself as SWPL progressiveness and a disaffection for all things American.


        July 31, 2019 at 4:29 AM

      • “Canadians and Americans are both amongst the nicest people in the world”

        When you speak of these Canadians and Americans, you speak of the Anglos. Anglophone Canadians would say the French Canadians are rude and arrogant with their separatist ways.

        There is a question being asked on Quora:

        Were the French nicer towards the 1st nations or natives in the New World than the Anglos?

But, more than that, torture and cannibalism were common practice among indians. I’m not overly concerned with how someone who tortured and ate other people was treated.

  16. I’ve known more than a few people who sort of muddle along the boundary between white and Hisoanic, and if they are constantly preoccupied with their racial identities it’s news to me. Somehow I doubt most of them pay it much attention at all.

    When it comes to determining whether a person is black or white there is a sharp distinction thanks to the One Drop Rule. Under the way of thinking in the United States, though not in most of the rest of the world, a person with any recognizable black ancestry is fully black, no “somewhats” or “maybes.” It has never been that way with respect to Hispanic ancestry. There is no One Drop Rule.

    But you’re not Latino if you are 100% of Spanish or Portuguese descent but were born in Spain or Portugal, correct?

There doesn’t seem to be a good reason to create a category to lump Spaniards, Argentine’s, and Chileans together with Dominicans and Puerto Ricans.

  19. The term “Latin America” was coined by Napoleon III as a way to advertise 19th century French goods to the Latin American market.

    To the extent “Latin” refers to linguistics, every Southern European nation except Greece could be considered “Latin”. If one means Hispanic, then only Spain and, to a lesser extent, Portugal, count as “Latin”.

  20. Both hispanic and latino are terms to define certain populations in the non English speaking parts of America, not in Europe. It has nothing to do with race or ethnicity and nothing to do with Europeans who still live in Europe. Hispanics are basically Spanish speaking Americans. It certainly doesn’t include Brazilians but the question is, does it include white skinned yet Spanish speaking Americans? I am not sure and that’s the only grey area. On the other hand Latin American basically describe any Iberian language speaking American regardless of their race, colour or original ethnicity.

    Therefore, a descendant of a French or Italian in America(the whole continent) who doesn’t speak an Iberian language is not a Latino, like a Quebecer or English speaking Italian but he will be a latino if he grew up in Argentina and speaks Spanish.
    A spanish speaking Spanish person in Spain is not Latino or hispanic.

    Saying that, this white Jewish Venezuelan has her own idea

  21. “Or a Japanese person in the same situation.”

    There are millions of them in Brazil. The largest population of ethnic Japanese outside of Japan is in Brazil. Japan gives preference to them for work visas to come to Japan and do menial work. A lot of Japanese-Brazilians go back to Japan to work in factories there. Most have assimilated too much as Brazilians, though, and often don’t speak Japanese and don’t fit in very well. There’s a lot of Portuguese speaking Japanese Brazilians in Osaka/Kobe Japan.

    I’m half Brazilian. DNA tests show I’m about about 94% European and the rest mostly indigenous with a little African. I’m blue-eyed and was blond until I was about 5.

    Most Americans are surprised to learn I’m half Brazilian. But white
    people are common in Brazil–a little over 50% of Brazilians self-identify as white. And in the southern states of Brazil it’s more like 80 or 90% white–whiter than a lot of places in America.

    I usually mark just “white” on forms, or sometimes “other”. Rarely Latino, unless I have an agenda (activists complain about not enough diversity in my industry/employer? Fine, then I’ll mark “Latino” to boost the numbers and help shut them up.)

    I didn’t use Latino to get AA to get into my top ranked grad school, marked “other”.

    • You have to give credit to the Spaniards who had one thing in mind when it came to the New World.

      Gold, gold, gold and nothing else. They went for the jugular. They sailed south to the equator and exploited the natives so they can get a hold of gold. That was their only purpose. And they created a bunch of insignificant sub-races along the way, who are now “invading’ the spaces taken by the Anglos in North America.

      When I was younger, I pondered why there weren’t any place names in Spanish in the Northern states like New York, but there were plenty of them in the Sunshine State, the Southwest and the Golden State. I couldn’t figure it out and I’m sure many others couldn’t either. It turns out the Spanish had their eyes fixated on the warmer land mass what we called Latin America in today’s term, after being convinced by a Northern Italian, Columbus, who studied “HBD” and its connection to gold. You have to thank an Italian who instigated the Hispanization of the New World.

        Me, I think it’s cool that upstate New York has small cities, towns, and tiny hamlets named after classical sources: Ilion, Troy, Syracuse, Macedon, Rome, Ithaca, Utica, Attica, Delphi, and my favorite, Romulus, the location of an army ammunition depot. None of those places had any Greeks or Italians in them when they were named. Most or all of their names came from an eccentric surveyor who was involved in setting up townships as part of granting public lands to Rev War vets after 1783, I think.

  24. I recently had a colleague who was half Puerto Rican, one quarter Scots-Irish and one quarter Norwegian. He looks entirely white and his hair has the exact same color mine had when I was young (kind of a dark blond, bronze shade), he even has the same ruddy, faintly tannish skin tone. Moreover, he talks like a typical white suburban daddy, has the same values and everything. Yet he can self-identify as “Hispanic” and thus escape the hate that is my fate. Lucky son of a bitch!

    • I wonder how many whites seeking to gain a few victim Pokemon points will pull a “Beto” and invent Hispanic sounding nicknames for themselves or Hispanicize their last names? Hispanicization will be a growth industry in the brave new world of Brazil Norte.

      • Right on – or, rather, left on. Call me Carlos!

  25. If only we had some sort of word such as mestizo that we could use to describe the difference that people notice between the average Latin American immigrant and, say, Alexis Bledel, or Louis C.K., or Eva Perón, or Alberto Fujimori.

    Just kidding. Noticing is evil.

  26. IIRC, Cameron Diaz took her white Cuban stepfather’s surname.

    The US is going to have to adjust its racial categories. The “one drop rule” kept a lot of the most talented Black’s within the fold, and probably stopped the country from turning into Brazil. It’s been stretched into ridiculousness these days. A lot of the most proud “blacks” are deeply pale, sometimes to the point of being white.

    It’s going to be pretty shocking once we import the white/Asian ruling class’s from Latin America and watch them claim victimhood status by coopting people they would spit at in their real home countries.

  27. And even better. A german nazi who flee to Argentina after the war can also be a latino and enjoy all the priviledges!

    • Good point. Although it would likely be his children or grandchildren.

  28. “White privilege” does actually exist in Latin America. Whites get all the best jobs and all the best girls.
