  8. 8. Concluding ThoughtsMy two main issues:• Classifications of Latin@s? •If the U.S. census does not designate Latin@s as a race, how are mixed race Latin@s classified?•Language? •Most of the literature uses the terms “minority” or “nonwhite”- words still centered on whiteness and pointing out what people are not, rather than what they are. What are better terms to use, especially in relationship to mixed race people?
