We’ve said it multiple times on the show: Latinos are the second largest demographic in the United States. But…what does that actually mean? Are Latinos a race? Ethnicity? Culture? In this episode, we try (and fail) to answer some of these questions with Dominican American podcaster and entertainer the Kid Mero.

It’s the first in a series of conversations we’ll be having about Latino/a/e/x identity with some people who have been grappling with these questions in a variety of different ways.

And, because this is Code Switch, we always want to hear from you. So please tweet at us with your thoughts (we’re @NPRCodeSwitch), send us an email (, or fill out this form.
