We’re Closing 2016 And People Are Still Doing These Things When Meeting Latinos

Here’s some solid advice to share with your non-Latino friends to keep them from putting their foot in their mouth when meeting a Latino family…

Saying the obvious Spanish words eeeeeveryone learned in pre-k doesn’t make anyone think you’re fluent.

Don’t make Latino jokes. Just don’t.

Don’t assume all Latinos are all Mexicans.

Drop the term Spanish.

Don’t drink too much.

Eat all of your food.

Avoid the topic of religion.

Learn who the family roots for.

Don’t call anyone “papi” or “mami.”
