Interesting video.


YouTube - WHITE MEXICANS


YouTube - Mexican-Americans
I was just reading the thread "Guadalajara (Europe in Latinamerica)". It's funny indeed how people were trying to prove their city to be the whitest one, as if there was a prize for the whitest city. lol

Mexico has established herself as a Mestizo nation, which it primarliy is, but not 100%.

it was GREAT! Beautiful women, I swear most girls were models!
But there are more "European" looking cities in the country: Morelia, Zacatecas, GUANAJUATO (My favourite by far, VERY EUROPEAN!), Leon, Cordoba, Orizaba, Puebla de los Angeles, Zacatecas, Colima, Merida, and of course Mexico City has that very European flavour, especially French and Spanish!
I find what Doriano said quite interesting: "after brainwashing we are convinced to say that anything that is european/white is bad". Although we all noticed how Mexicans rave about everything european/white.

[LEFT]seeing your posts on citydata can be noted here that you have a high interest in race themes, trying to show some superiority of the white or who deserve to be called white...

Lets se, you see a majority of brown mexican population in USA and that is because the majority of people who leave mexico to go to work illegally to the United States is expelled from the Mexican countryside, but this figure does not represent all Mexico, people living in the Mexican countryside is only 30% of the total population.

[LEFT]is not just a mix indigenous disparagingly as your comments.

mexico have been mixed in different races, not just the Spaniards with the Indians, please! that happens 400 years ago!

Mexicans in general now have a few Indian background.
Yeah sure few Mexicans have Indio ancestry. keep trying to convince yourself that.


The majority of Mexicans are Brown period, whether it's the ones living in Mexico or the ones living in the United States. Sorry but Mexico is not some blond haired and blue eyed Aryan country where the majority of the populaton look like the poster folks for the SS.

I Just hate people who try to whitewash Mexico and try to paint is as being whiter than it actually is.

This is a dumb argument! Mexicans, are people born in Mexico and are citizens of that country... My father is of Mexican decent but he views himself as an AMERICAN!!

I have read that only true Mexicans have Indian blood... I have American Indian blood but they do not think that counts! Like I said, it is a stupid argument!

Brown Pride
Brown pride - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"The slogan has been used by Latinos (especially of Native American descent) to denote a feeling of self-respect, celebrating one's heritage, and being proud of one's personal worth. Brown pride as a national movement is closely linked with the developments of the American Civil Rights Movement, during which noted figures such as Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, A. Philip Randolph, Stokely Carmichael, and others protested the conditions of the United States segregated society, and lobbied for better treatment for people of all races. This time in the United States also saw the creation of brown pride movements such as the Chicano Movement and La Raza advocating brown pride."



Anti-Mexican sentiment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Mexican American school children were subject to racial segregation in the public school system. They were forced to attend Mexican schools in California"

"Many organizations, businesses, and homeowners associations had official policies to exclude Mexican Americans. In many areas across the Southwest, Mexican Americans lived in seperate residential areas, due to laws and real estate company policies. This group of laws and policies, known as redlining, lasted until the 1950s and fall under the concept of official segregation. In many other instances, it was more of a general social understannding among Anglos that Mexicans should be excluded. For instance, signs with the phrase "no dogs or Mexicans" were posted in small businesses and public pools throughout the Southwest well into the 60s.
