The Pew Hispanic Center recently published “When Labels Don’t Fit: Hispanics and their Views of Identity.” The report was based on a nationwide survey that found most Hispanics don’t embrace the term “Hispanic.” And even fewer prefer the term “Latino.”

In the days following the release, hundreds of people offered their observations on social media, and scores of newspapers and websites published articles, commentaries and editorials. Some readers emailed Pew with their own opinions and stories.

It is a fascinating topic, and they would like to continue the conversation. So they invited journalists, scholars and civic leaders to share their views. For the next two weeks, they will publish one of these commentaries on the Pew Hispanic Center website. Today, they begin with Esther Cepeda’s “I’m a Minority Within a Minority.” She is a member of the Washington Post Writers Group.

They also invite you to join the discussion. Share their thoughts, views and personal stories about your identity on our new Pew Hispanic Center Facebook page.

A new interactive graphic highlighting key findings from the report is also available.

The Pew Hispanic Center, a project of the Pew Research Center, is a nonpartisan, non-advocacy research organization based in Washington, D.C. and is funded by The Pew Charitable Trusts.
