BTW, just because Mexico is a part of the North American continent, that does not entitle the inhabitants of that country to run back and forth over the U.S. border at will. You don't see the French invading Italy by the millions while declaring that their status as an indigenous person to the European continent entitles them to do so. That argument holds absolutely no water and becomes more and more ridiculous every time I hear it.
Just more and more desperation on the part of the 'reconquista' fans......they intuitively realize that public opinion is turning against them hence their strident rhetoric.

I think its more like you think you know more than we know.

Fact is , the vast majority of Mexican-Americans are mestizo...some light skinned, some brown, some dark. A minority of Mexican-Americans are full or mostly india. And another minority is full of european.

In this country, we are all seen as Mexican, and we together form an indentity as such. We have pride in what we are, as a race made of a mix of other races.

Maybe thats not what it is, but thats what we consider it in this country, and thats how this country considers us for the most part. and thats all that matters.

you didnt find the long lost ancient tablets that prove, yes there is some european bloods in most mexicans, and some mexicans are even full european. you arent bringing the truth to people who didnt know that before.

I'm not a Rhodes Scholar, but I do know ONE thing...there are a LOT more Mexicans who are part European than there are Europeans who are part Mexican...and there are a certain percentage of Mexicans who are PURE European, yet almost NO Europeans who are pure Mexican.

And here in California, we have American Indians AND Indian Americans...just thought I'd 'stir the pot' a little. No need to comment unless someone wants to.

Happy Memorial Day to all....
