is he of mexican origin or an american who migrated to mexico, you using race which is confusing me instead of using naitonalistic terms, it seems though your talking about an american man whos white who lived in mexico for a long time correct? Not a mexican individual whos white?

wouldnt he be a american-mexican and not a mexican-american? same difference
