Well, that's not true. Spaniards have no problems with that, they only get upset, as us, when Americans use those terms wrongly. Spaniards are Hispanics and therefore "Latinos." The word Hispania was the Roman province where Spain is now, and those who speak Spanish are called "Hispanics" .Hispanoamerica exists because it was colonized by Spain. In fact, they are the original Hispanics.
There is the Day of Hispanic Heritage, which is celebrated very warmly in Spain.
And the word "Latino" is the Spanish form of the word "Latin" which refers to everything derived from the Roman Empire and their Latin language and culture.
I hope this has helped you.
