Re Arion Berger’s article on Latino music crossover (“Rock the Vote, Ricky!” 6/11): Well written, informative, but filled with the uniquely American idiocy of using the word “race” where the word “cultural” or “ethnic” should be used.

Is there such a thing as a Latino race? Or a Jewish race? Or a German race?


Latinos are made up of members of all four races (Caucasian, black, Asian, and Native Americans).

There are only four!
