That's just in the US. And only because Brazilians aren't really considered Hispanics/Latinos in the US — there, 'Hispanic' and 'Latino' are used as synonyms, due to historical reasons. And I'm not talking about that being the case just officially. It's the social view as well. I have talked to numerous Latinos in the US who said the same thing: that Brazilians can't be considered part of their community (i.e. Hispanic and Latino Americans — and I mean 'Americans' as in US nationals) because we don't speak Spanish.

Also, Brazilians in the US don't like the label 'Latino' much. Not only because we don't speak Spanish, but also because they feel Brazilian culture is unique enough to be separate.
