Daniel Rey: Latino, Latine, Latinx

So-called minority ethnic people in Britain complain that they didn’t receive the memo when the acronym BAME was foisted on them, yet it stuck. The same appears to be true of Latinx in the USA, a term increasingly used by journalists to describe a section of the population, yet it’s one with which only three per cent of that group identify. The British-Colombian writer, Daniel Rey, explores the minefield of naming, being identified and self-identifying that he has encountered on moving recently to the USA.
