This paper describes the four Hispanic-American groups in the United States: Mexican-Americans, Puerto Ricans, Cuban-Americans and people from various Central and South American countries. Although all four groups are considered Hispanic-Americans, the paper stresses that each group has its own unique culture and beliefs, much like any other minority group in the United States.

From the Paper:

"Many Cuban Americans had to flee their country unwillingly due to political issues, so there is an extremely strong sense of culture and heritage within the Cuban American communities. As the older generations pass and younger Cuban American generations rise, the traditional Cuban values seem to slowly fade. Younger Cuban Americans often marry outside of their culture, which was highly frowned upon by traditional Cuban American culture. These young Cuban Americans are beginning to relate more to American culture than to that of their Cuban culture."
