    Summers In Mexico

    I'm half Mexican but I don't speak Spanish (my dad's choice) and I don't really look it. I was born and raised in California, although when I was younger and passports weren't necessary to cross the border, we used to go to Mexico a lot. My grandpa owns a ranch outside of...

    Mexican is not a race.

    Mexicans are Native American, A mix of Native American and Spanish. A mix of Spanish and other European races and Sometimes French. The Spanish themselves have Semitic blood as they were conquered by the Arabs. Mexico is a country that was born of violence and conquest...

    That's right! I'm a Mexican

    and proud of it! Why? Because I do the jobs gringos don't want to! They don't want to paint their house a different color on the inside because they are lazy. So who do they call? The Mexican! Why? Because we say, "oh I charge you $80 a day ok? Ok. That's me! And we take what we...

    In about a month I'll hopefully be able to go

    to Mexico, it's been two long years and so much issues have taken place since the last time I visited.. I'm just hoping that nothing too crazy happens when I'm there.

    Stereotypers of Mexicans

    When people hear that I am Mexican, they look at me with surprise. In their minds, they are realizing that their stereotypes that the media in the US with which they are presented so persistently doesn't mesh with me. Many people even go as far as voicing these thoughts. For...

    I am indigenous Mexican from my mom's side,

    and Spanish from my dad's side. My mom's mom (my grandma) was indigenous, she even spoke Puebla's (a part of Mexico) own dialect, which I never learned, sadly. My dad's father (my grandpa) was straight from Spain. But I love my Mexican heritage!
