Write a 625- to 850-word paper organized with introduction, body, and conclusion paragraphs.
Discuss each of the following topics:
• When the Hispanic census category became official (the first time it was used in the United States Census) and how its definition has changed over time.
• The ethnic and racial variability within the larger “Latin American” group, as defined by the U.S. Census.
• At least five distinctive subgroups that belong under this broad category.
• The language variability in the larger Latin American group.
• The religious variability in the larger Latin American group.
• The cultural variability in the larger Latin American group.
• How Africans in Mexico, Central and South America were absorbed into the Hispanic population, in contrast to being kept separate in the U.S.
