I have friends from Spain, and they don’t consider themselves Hispanic. Same thing for my Peruvian friends. I’ve heard the term most commonly refering to people from Mexico, Central America and the Carribbean. French speakers in the Western hemisphere have distinct cultural and ethnic distinctions, too. Creole (usually black French speakers) Metis (a French/Native American hybrid culture) and Cajun. Other Mediterranean people like Italians, Greeks and North Africans never set up colonies here that might have developed new ethnicities.
