We attempt to define Hispanic identity as we reach peak visibility in the public eye. We are talked about more, thought about more, debated about more. Our culture synthesized, borrowed, and made easy to pronounce. Our identity prescribed, and put into a box: where it sometimes feels like being Hispanic is being told how to be Hispanic. 
We are not Hispanics sometimes. We are not only Hispanics when we do Hispanic things. Our identity is who we are, and what we do—always.
