    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.
