Some say yes, some say no. What do you guys think? I've been wondering about this for years and I never got a straight answer. Since they have Spanish last names it just throws me off. SRS question by the way.

I never thought about the Spanish last names... That's interesting.. They do have the same racial background though, right? Latina and Asian?

They're Asian. Some just don't want to be associated with the negative stereotypes. Kinda like Ethiopians denying the fact that they're Black.

i remember back in HS this Filipino chick kept rambling on how they were pacific islanders and not asians. One day she was giving one of her speeches in the cafeteria and this hefty Samoan chick walked right up to her face and said, "*!*%! youre NOT pacific islander!" Didnt hear a peep from ol filipino girl for the rest of the school year.
