most mexicans ARE MIXED.

look at the northern states. look at states like jalisco. they are mixed. and many many have blondies.

sure, there are pockets of indigenous peoples, but that is further to the south. they are the minority.
also, to say that true mexicans are descended from aztecs is also wrong. look at the mayan south. they are not aztec.
further, the primary cutlure was toltec. which is a branch of nahua. which took off from tribes further north.

aztec is whats been glorified as THE ONE, when it is not. its just the most famous.
i laugh when people say they are part aztec. or their family was part aztec.

as for who should govern mexico and who is illegal... its a little to late for that. money talks.

seriously the more i read this thread the more i want to give edu a history book. the only tru survivng indian group were the mayas. that was due in part to the geography/ layout of the land (jungle) and the fact that the mayas DID NOT HAVE A CENTRALIZED GOV'T. it was easy to take over the aztec empire becuase they had one head. the mayas had many kingdoms. you take one out, there are still lots more.

the mayan cultured persevered the most. it is evident in its language diversity. so many different dialects exist to this day.

but is this really illi immig related?
