    Of course Mexicans are White and Native American. Look up the meaning of what La Raza means it has something to do with taking pride of mexicans’ native roots.

      Taking pride in Mexico is only part of it. Jose, wanted you guys to be the so called perfect race or cosmic race. He didn’t. Want you to just be Euro and Indian, but a combination of all the races, he just wanted you to look more like Europeans. That’s. What he meant by la raza, cosmic race

    Mexicans are Mexicans if they were native they’d be considered native. If they were Spanish that’s what they’d be. Since there isn’t full breed anymore you are considered whatever country you are born in also depending on the generation. He is Mexican-American.

    He’s racially confused, the guy has a tan he’s not BROWN.

    Do a DNA test I promise you the majority will be European with some native.
