This word is used by Spanish speakers to refer to Spanish speakers. This is the Spanish translation of “Hispanic”. P-P-T promotes the use of “hispano” as a designation strictly about language, to refer to native or highly fluent Spanish speakers to avoid the politicized identity connotations of Hispanic, Latin@, Chican@ and others. This is not to avoid politics, but to refer to what we want to refer to – people who speak Spanish.
