Well there arent nearly as many South Asians as Latinos in the US so it's more likely that a South Asian might be mistaken for latino than vice versa. But yeah, there are definitely some Latinos who could pass for South Asians.

I have a friend who once got into a fistfight with a convenience store owner over it. The owner tried talking to my friend in his language, my friend obviously didnt know what he was saying, but the Pakistani dude insisted that he was playing dumb or ashamed of his heritage.

Some Latinos have Spaniard blood, Spain had a big Arab population back in the day.

There is a definate similarity between some individuals especially to those not that familiar with said races.
You don't get latinos in the UK but at school there was this exchange student from Ecuador and he used to got a lot of Indian/Pakistani related racism directed towards him.

Yes, the moors ruled Spain for 700 years until White Christians slowly took it over.

I personally don't think hispanics look like arabs. I think maybe some Cubans but thats about it. Arabs have longer noses and deep set eyes. A lot of hispanics look more oriental. I know a bunch of Peruvians back in Miami and there are some Chinese people (I live in China ATM) that look less asian then them. It really depends on what you mean by hispanic, there is a wide range of ethnicities what qualifies as hispanic.

Different hispanics resemble different groups. Cubans tend to look more african / european / mixed, same with puerto ricans. Mexicans look more like a cross of asian / european imo. The asian comes in from the native americans.

Some Hispanics (mostly from Central America and South America) have Arab ancestry due to the arab diaspora, that's why they get mistaken for South Asians (Pakistanis, Indians, Bangladesh, Bengali etc).

there you go. we also have African roots from Spaniards slaves, so some of us are darker others lighter. I agree with the nose thing thou, typical arab male is nosier (no pun) than avg latino.

That's not true, there are loads of Latinos in the UK, especially in London. There are huge Brazilian, Colombian and Ecuadorian communities.
