This is very true, but sometimes they are punished for their "lighter" characteristics. I have seen the bias and bigotry repeatedly towards lighter skinned hispanics. I worked with a very pretty blonde, blue eyed hispanic woman, very educated and professional in her job. She was repeatedly undermined by the "browns" around her, but there is karma. She is now their "boss"!! I left the horrible place before I could see the drama in action as to her retribution for them. Sorry a little off topic....

The standard of beauty in both Mexico and Spain is white skin and blue eyes
I have an uncle who looks pretty Spanish. His dad is a bit darker and his mom is light skinned, kind of like my situation. His daughters, my cousins, look pretty Spanish as well. Don't look that Mexican at all. As you might not know, I have a tendency to call Mexicans "Paisas" short for "Paisanos". He got mad at me and told me neither he nor his daughters were "Paisas". My mom was like "What?! Yes they are!". Hahaha.

That's sick, and true. I see it all the time. No way in hell am I going to vote for another U.S. president, not until they get all these other worthless races out of here. I can just picture men from the U.S. army fighting in Iraq, only to come back to the U.S. and have hostile gangs driving by in their neighborhoods. Disgusting.

Probably because the 'brown' Latinos can get away with that here in the USA because there is less prejudice against the above here, ironically enough.

If the above tried that in Mexico-------they would be screwed.
