YOU know what I’m talking about?

This question is at work and on the streets (I’m a so-called Hispanic teacher in a predominantly white teaching force in a predominantly immigrant city). What they mean to say is, “You know what I’m talking about, right? You are like them. So, you must know. Right?”

No, just because I am Hispanic doesn’t mean that I can answer all Hispanic related questions. Hispanics have a diverse culture, cuisine, lifestyle, etc. And, no, I don’t know what you mean!
