I wonder why so many people living in the US automatically think in South America as soon as the read "Spanish" somewhere.
Maybe TTG should make a forum for racist ignorants like you...
When he said "Latino," I think he meant "Hispanic". Not many people in the US know the difference. I believe that "Latino" = Latin America, which includes Central and all of South America, including Brazil, plus Spanish-speaking Caribbean, such as Puerto Rico, Cuba, and Dominican Republic. However, this doesn't include Spain.
"Hispanic" means "Of Spain" and refers to every country and region that speaks Spanish, such as almost all countries in Central and South America (with some exceptions, such as Brazil, Suriname, Belize, etc.), and includes Spain, though Spain does not include just Spanish (or Castellano) and also includes Catalán, Andalusian, and Basque.
At least that's what the terms mean to the best of my knowledge. I could be wrong. Anyone want to correct me if I made a mistake?
