Are all Mexicans hispanic?
Yes. If they speak spanish, they are hispanic. Hispanic is not a race but an ethnic background. If you come of spanish background, culture or language, it means you're hispanic. But if you are native american, you still speak your native language and practice your culture, then no, you are not hispanic. You come from a Hispanic country, but you're not necessarily one in this case.

If your father is half Hispanic and your mom is Caucasian are you considered Hispanic?
Being Hispanic is not a race but a cultural identity. If one of your paternal grandparents was Hispanic and your mother is Caucasian, you can call your self Hispanic if you want. The term does seem to apply better if you have been part of the Hispanic community, participated in the culture, or have personally experienced anti-Hispanic prejudice or discrimination at some point.

Retroculturation pertains to the Hispanic community. It describes how a first generation of Hispanics that enter into a culture, for example, the US, and they start to assimilate to the American culture.

Asked in Al Pacino
Is Al Pacino hispanic?
Al Pacino is an Italian American actor. To answer the question, he would be Latino, but not Hispanic, a Hispanic can be Latino, but not all Latinos are Hispanic. Hispanic means someone who has been raised into the Hispanic culture, which is the culture Latin Americans inherited from Spain. However, the term Latino is broader and includes all people descending from the Roman empire's culture, that is Italians, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Romanian. Now, from all these countries, the people they conquered and colonized inherited their culture, and therefore became Latinos themselves. Most of the colonies of the above countries were established in Latin America, to include Hispanic countries, such as Cuba, Mexico, Argentina, Peru, Chile, et cetera, and Portuguese countries such as Brazil and Angola. Finally, when you refer to a Latino, he could be of Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, or Romanian, but when you refer to a Hispanic person, he or she, is descendant from Spain, not any other Latino country, just Spain. Note: Brazilians are Latinos, but they are not Hispanic, they are Portuguese.
