    i'm mexican and adopted into a white family,

    and I guess I'm what you could call a white mexican since I'm tan but not the really deep caramel type tan. But when I was younger and lived in a white neighbourhood I was constantly feeling odd and out of place for my brown hair and eyes and tan and I'd try to white myself like...

    Both of my biological parents were Mexican

    and on my moms side she had Apache. I was adopted by natives and raised Native so i wasn't raised in a Spanish speaking home. I kind of get judged because of that, which i think is unfair because it's something i couldn't control. In our area, the second largest population is...

    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...
