Where is a person from if they're Hispanic?

Quoting noahsmommy-010:

I was born in Mexico brought here when i was 9 or so. My son's father is hispanic so nothing different than me(not together anymore) My boyfriend now is from a different background than me (African American). I am the only one out of all my family who has dated outside our race. Nothing too big but his family has more than one culture which i love:)

I'm bi-racial (white mom/ cajun dad) born in the Philippines.  My husband and his family are what most would consider a "typical" white family.  My side is more diverse than his side, but we all come together well and have learned a lot from one another.  My kids will tell you they are purple :)

I'm American and Dh is from Middle East. As far as husband's government is concerned our children are from his country as they don't recognize dual-citizenship.

I was born and raised in Israel until I was 10 my grandparents from both my father and mother are all from Hungary . I have duel citizenship and so does DS. I had to get all sorts of paperwork to have our marriage recognized in Israel. Dh is an all American boy from Irish descent. There are still things I don't know or understand about the American culture after 18 years of being here. Dh and his family are very good at helping me out
when i don't know a certain word or don't understand something. I never knew about thank you notes or Christmas or Easter until I met dh.

 well my background is irish/scottish/german/cherokee but it's too far in the past so.....

my husband is 100% mexican, born & raised there.  he moved here when he was 20.

in my family at large though; my sil is 1st gen italian american (her parents moved here from sicily shortly before she was born), 1 of my bil's is of italian decent also (northern mountain region), 2 of my bil's are of polish decent, & 1 bil is "just" american.  one of my cousins adopted a little girl from quatamala.
