For whatever reason, people say "Spanish" when referring to a Latino person, not realizing/knowing/caring that being "Spanish" is really for people from Spain, and not because they speak Spanish. I don't find it racist when people say, "the black/hispanic/white guy over there". As a Latino person, you just have to roll with it when an ignorant person isn't aware of your nationality. Some people really think all Latinos are Mexican. It's really simple to just say, "Just to let you know, I'm not Spanish/Mexican/whatever...I'm ______". No need to get your panties in a bunch. FYI, I'm Mexican, and have been through this stuff.
