Embedded Player Due to their shared colonial past, Filipinos and Latinos share last names, religion, food and even similarities in language. Here in the United States, as many Filipino-Americans grow up in cities with large Latino population like Los Angeles, these lines become even clearer. Anthony Ocampo breaks down these similarities in his book, "The Latinos of Asia: How Filipino Americans Break the Rules of Race." Maria Hinojosa talks to Ocampo about the book, his experience growing up in Los Angeles as a Filipino-American and what his research tells us about the links between Filipinos and Latinos.
