Just because someone is Mexican doesn’t mean they are Mestizo ( half Spanish half Indigenous Mexican) They could be white-Mexican, Arab-Mexican, Asian-Mexican or born in Europe and then immigrated to Mexico. Its too much of a generalization to say every Mexican is Half or full Indigenous when that is not true. Infact, Like in America,Australia,Canada, and other places, the Indigenous face alots of racism and noone wants them to be apart of society.

her paternal great-grandfather was the son of a member of the Mexican nobility named Susana de la Torre y Mier. You know upper classes don’t use to mix with Native people

Yup that is why I said people should not refer to Mexicans as all being of Mestizo, Castizo, or Indigenous, as Mexican is a nationality, not a race like we are led to believe, and as I said before, theres alot of racism against Natives/Blacks in Central America, and South America.

I never knew there was Mexican nobility in their family. I think Charlotte is the prettiest of Grace Kelly’s granddaughters.
