Latino and Latinx/e: Finding a Solution for a Challenge That Is Dividing Our Community

There are many studies that show that the number of people within the LATINO/HISPANIC community who use the term "Latinx/e" is less than 5%. Yet, I've seen articles asking the community to accept the term, while the community has expressed it LOUD AND CLEAR that it's not happening. Marketers know that IF YOU DON'T KNOW or UNDERSTAND your target audience, it's over. Using the term LATINX/E for the Latino community is the same thing. While many are trying to make it STICK, my recommendation to ALL MARKETERS is to stay away from the term until the COMMUNITY agrees on how this term should be used, not the 5%.  By Luis Solís
