American Geographical Ignorance
« on: January 18, 2012, 11:39:06 PM »

:shock:  Recently you guys talked about geographical ignorance in the US and it was a very amusing show.  I'd like to express a general gripe -  I rarely hear anyone mention the fact that people in the US regularly use the term "Spanish" when referring to all things LATINO.  In other words, all Latin Americans are lumped together with the real Spanish (people from Spain which is no a completely different continent) as well as the food.... for xample beans & rice is NOT Spanish food.  They do eat beans and rice however not necessarily together like they do in Latinamerica....  just sayin'....

I dont know, but just found out recently that Spanish Harlem is actually in New York city, not in Spain.

Who'da thunk it?
