Sonja Sotomayor No Latina

Its interesting how Sonja Sotomayor describes herself as a Latina... Sonja Sotomayor was born in The Bronx NYC, her parents were born in Puerto Rico--therefore by strict definition of the term Latina--"a person of Latin American descent"--Sonja Sotomayor is not a Latina.

Yes she is a LATINA, only because she is born in the bronx does not make her anything else, she is of hispanic decendent, now so does being born in the USA make you a NON_LATINA, does that change your roots!! I was born in the bronx but I am a pure LATINA having both my parents being hispanic....
