I was a keynote speaker at an event for Hispanic students. At the beginning of the event, the organizer gave a whole speech about how we don’t use the word “Hispanic” because it’s offensive (a lie) and instead use LatinX because it’s inclusive and many Spanish-speakers like it (a total lie).
Then I gave my keynote address, and obviously I said “Hispanic” and “latino.” I also gave parts of the keynote address in Spanish. Nothing upsets diversity folks more than people speaking languages they can’t police or control.
Great experience. The president of the university system reached out to thank me in person.
