American Citizen

 I am happy to be an american citizen . However something has been bothering me lately.

I never had this problem till I became an adult. I was born in U.S went to school here.  I speak mostly english all the time. I am not ashamed being a Mexican. I even understand spanish and I speak spanish . Lately it seems that a white person see's me and would say do you want a pamplet in spanish ? Or a co worker gets me a gift of catholic cross .I am not even a catholic.       I just dont know much about being a  100%Mexican. I dont understand why we get labeled immediately. I enjoy speaking both language. I Dont know how to explain it. Does Anybody have a problem like me ?
