2. Afro-Latino is not either/or.
The U.S. Census defines Latino as an ethnicity and black as a race. So you actually don’t need to choose between identifying yourself as black or Latino. However, according to Pew Research, “[M]ost U.S. Hispanics consider their Hispanic background a part of their racial makeup. For example, 69% of Latinos ages 18 to 29 say their Hispanic background is part of their racial background, as do 68% of those ages 30 to 49, 63% of those ages 50 to 64 and 66% of those ages 65 or older.”
