I'm missing something here
Latin comes from Latium
Rudolph Valentino is half Italian/half French. He is Latin.
All these links are to Mestizos and half breeds.
I don't know why you used that term and Rudolph Valentino then posted all about mestizos and AmerIndians, who are NOT Latin, or considered "Latin Lovers". Maybe the Mestizos in America self identify as Latin? I don't know, I don't live in America.
