Today marks the end of Hispanic Heritage Month. HuffPost Live took the opportunity to revisit the debate over what it means exactly to be "Latino" or "Hispanic" in the United States.

Watch host Marc Lamont Hill give it a try in this discussion with Communications Consultant Abraham Morales, CPA to the Stars David Acosta, Rock Orange Account Director Julissa Bonfonte, blogger Julia Torres Barden and HuffPost Latino Voices Associate Editor Roque Planas.
