Roughly 48% of Latin America is black. According to a Pew Research Center survey, “one-quarter of all U.S. Latinos self-identify as Afro-Latino, Afro-Caribbean or of African descent with roots in Latin America.” Yet, Afro-Latinx identity is constantly being questioned. There’s this sense that you can’t be Black and Latino, when that’s entirely incorrect. The two are not mutually exclusive. In fact, you can be of any race and also be Latino. We all know this by now, right?
