if what you say is true thats commendable. the majority of the people here only follow this because they saw "black" and "white" in the headlines. I just hope ALL of the facts are checked before people take justice into their own hands.
Yes, I am VERY aware as to why that is. The idea is that names are in no way telling of what someone's race is. In the case of black people it's slavery, in others its to actually HIDE their ethnicity, nationality, or race.
We're on the same page.
its not just slavery or "hiding" ethnicity as you say. have you heard of migration? Mexico had quite a bit of european migrants during the first and second mexican empire.
and you do realize "mexican" isnt really a race, its a culture. the people are a mixture of different indigenous nations combined with colonial europeans.
just the same that "americans" dont necessarily have to be "white" why do you a.ssume "mexicans" have to be....whatever your preconception of them are?
look up argentina and brazil....you cant tell what they are by looking at them can you?
and on that note there are white people who are AFRICAN and JAMAICAN....if you dont consider them AFRICAN or JAMAICAN you sir are a RACIST, lmao
