FILE - In this Tuesday, March 19, 2013 file photo, people watch a live broadcast of Pope Francis' Vatican installation Mass on a large screen outside the Metropolitan Cathedral in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Francis is being hailed with pride and wonder as the "first Latino pope," a native Spanish speaker born and raised in the South American nation of Argentina. But for some Latinos in the United States, there's a catch: Pope Francis' parents were born in Italy. The conversation about Pope Francis' ethnicity is rooted in history and geography. Latin America is a complex region of deep racial and class narratives. (AP Photo/Natacha Pisarenko, File)
