I agree with the previous post. When I came to my first job, I was straight out of graduate school in Poli. Sci. and full of the ideas of diversity and what to call minority groups, etc. The school where I taught was 60+% Hispanic but none of them called themselves that (or Latino). They called themselves Mexicans and they didn't seem to identify much with Cubans or Dominicans or Puerto Ricans when we talked about those other groups in class.
