American Latino/Native American?

‘America Ferrera’
Speaking as an expert on the subject, you are 100% American/100% Latino!
An ‘American Latino’ a ‘Latino’ or an ‘American’ the choice is yours and only yours!
The Military of this country made this choice yours and has been making it your free choice for over 200 years!
I can now better relate to my Latino friends and followers as to how they feel while being in this country.
Thank-you ‘American Ferrera’ while on ‘the View’ today.
I have been writing, clumsy as it might be, since 1982 or 83 about ‘Blood’ and ‘lack thereof’ in order for my native friends, ancestors and anyone with family of the ‘first people to be allowed to be called ‘Indian’ (Native to this land), by our invading government of this country.
I should have known and thank to an Americas Latino
I now do know that this government of 
‘Old While hypocritess’, and the ‘laziness’ of, so called ‘Recognized’ (First people of this land) and ‘Laziness’ of (Recognized Latinos), has been confusing people like you for years, 200 to be exact!
I walked away from all of those hypocrites, 
native and government casinos!

From award-winning actress and political activist America Ferrera comes a vibrant and varied collection of first person accounts from prominent figures about the experience of growing up between cultures.
America Ferrera has always felt wholly American, and yet, her identity is inextricably linked to her parents’ homeland and Honduran culture. Speaking Spanish at home, having Saturday-morning-salsa-dance-parties in the kitchen, and eating tamales alongside apple pie at Christmas never seemed at odds with her American identity.
Still, she yearned to see that identity reflected in the larger American narrative.
Now, in American Like Me, America invites thirty-one of her friends, peers, and heroes to share their stories about life between cultures. We know them as actors, comedians, athletes, politicians, artists, and writers. However, they are also immigrants, children or grandchildren of immigrants, indigenous people, or people who otherwise grew up with deep and personal connections to more than one culture. Each of them struggled to establish a sense of self, find belonging, and feel seen. And they call themselves American enthusiastically, reluctantly, or not at all.
Ranging from the heartfelt to the hilarious, their stories shine a light on a quintessentially American experience and will appeal to anyone with a complicated relationship to family, culture, and growing up.
