The many faces of Mexico

The many faces of Mexico

Originally uploaded by Chiva Congelado

It’s funny how people always assume that Mexicans are all brown, without taking into consideration the history of the country. Before the Spanish arrival there were already different peoples in what is now the Mexico, and with the conquest also came people from Asia, Africa and the rest of Europe.

Unilke other parts of the world, we have mixed for hundreds of years, so there is not the same kind of racial relations as there is in the United States (in my humble opinion, Mexicans are more classist than racist).

It’s difficult to focus only on skin colour when even members of your own family can look completely different from you.
