            I think they’re referring to him not having much indigenous features and they’re right. He’s obviously not 100 Spanish but he fits the Castizo bill just right. He’s mixed. Also don’t see the point mentioning you’re from Spain when most of us don’t need your point of view, we are not idiots.

            “we are not idiots”
            We agree to disagree then :D
