In the U.S., two of the fastest-growing ethnic groups are Asian and Latino—and those two groups are not mutually exclusive. For centuries, immigrants from Asia have settled in Mexico all the way down to Argentina, and their descendants carry both Asian and Latin American identities. Inside the U.S., Asians and Latinos have lived side-by-side in heavily immigrant neighborhoods and have created lives together. In this episode, we’ll hear from four Latino USA listeners, who discuss their own Asian Latino identity and how it has shaped their experience in the U.S.
