From “Steve Polychronopoulos”[

If Signor
X is upset that Mexicans are called Latinos, he
must be doubly put out that he has been dubbed an
“Anglo”. The
term has fallen out of use but in the 70`s in California
the
term was applied to anyone but those of Mexican descent
,
who

were in those days
often referred to by the
blessedly obsolete term
“Chicano”. I`m
as white as they come
but not at all English and
found the term a bit galling.

The
“Anglos” then
were not people of
English descent, but actually in large part the
descendants of those who had
learned
English upon coming here. What a concept. We should
all
be Anglos!
