Where I live most Whites do have at least one Indian ancestor and many also have "Melungeon" or "Black Dutch" ancestry. People who ancestors came after the Civil War probably don't.

Melungeons are a group of mixed race people found living in the Southern Appalachians when the English settlers made their first arrival. DNA testing has shown most of them have Portuguese/ Spanish paternal ancestry with maternal ancestry that's American Indian, African, or Arab.

Just another group of people the Mexicans want to exterminate I guess

How are "MOST" White Americans of Native descent? It's not good to say such things with no proof. I don't think I even need proof though to confidently say that that is untrue.

Most mexicans are pure native american
in latin america if a native american learns spanish and wears jeans he becomes mestizo, being native american in latin america is seen as low class thats why most will try to claim mestizo just like in brazil most blacks try to call themselves pardos and not black.

No they aren't. 60% of them are mestizos aka mixed race. Their race isn't determined by their languge usage or style of clothing. It is genetics.

thats how it is in latin america.
if mexicans would speak their native language or wear native clothes no one would doubt they are native,

we can say asians,whites and blacks are mestizo too, because there is no pure race
