    I'm Mexican and proud

    but I hate it when people think that all Mexicans are the same. Everyone is so surprised when I tell them when I don't like hot sauce that much xD They ask if I have tacos and beans every day. But you know I'm cool with it.

    Being A Mexican.

    I was raised around Mexicans. My parents spoke Spanish along with my brothers, my cousins, my aunts, my uncles, almost everyone except for my nephews and nieces. Weird, huh? I was raised as 100% Mexican! That means I got the strict father who worked and the mom who is the...

    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...

    Proud To Be Mexican!

    I think I'm about 75% Mexican. My dad is 100% and my mom is 25%. My whole life, I was taught to be proud of my culture. Honestly, I couldn't be more proud of my culture and my ancestors. Growing up, my sisters and I were the only Mexicans in my school. They didn't get made fun of...

    Being mexican doesn't mean being illegal.

    Most white people look at Mexican Americans and think we are all lazy or are in a gang while we abuse the government. If anyone has half a brain they should know not to judge a book by it's cover, and THINK. I love where my ancestors come from and im proud to be a latina. and...

    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...

    Stereotypers of Mexicans
