1. A person who is born in Mexico; a citizen of Mexico.
2. A person who has ancestry or is ethnically from Mexico.
3. Term used, especially on the west coast, California, and southwestern states of the U.S., for all hispanics from Latin America. In other parts of the U.S., such as the east coast states and Florida, terms such as "Puerto Rican"/ "Hatian" and "Cuban"/ "Hatian" are used in place of "Mexican" to describe hispanics of those regions. It is mostly used for hispanics of low socioeconomic classes or from urban inner city areas, who are usually immigrants settling in those regions of the country in enormous numbers and sometimes, are perceived as burdening the state economies with unemployment while infesting those regional cultures with very large legal and illegal influxes of poor non-assimilatory populations. These immigrant populations usually do not assimilate at all into mainstream culture i.e. learn simple English, mingle with other cultures, attend college, etc. and this then tends to lead to cultural and linguistic isolation, economic hardship, low-income hispanic populations living forever on welfare, disgruntled youth and racial misunderstandings. It is used as a derogatory term.

A person born in or has heritage in Mexico. It is not a race, it is a nationality. Like people from the U.S., they can have a variety of looks (i.e. blonde haired and blue eyed, dark haired and light eyed etc.) Not all Mexicans are dark skinned, dark haired and dark eyed. Like people from the U.S., Mexicans can have descent from the native people (i.e. Aztecs) and/or Europeans.
Person 1: Hey look at that American guy!
Person 2: What if he is Mexican?
Person 1: No he can't be! He's got blonde hair and blue eyes!
Person 2: Dude, Mexicans have all kinds of looks. Don't be ignorant.
A person of nationality of the country of Mexico.
Contrary to popular misconception, "Mexican" is not a racial or ethnic group. Though the majority of Mexicans are Amerindians (pure-bloods and mixed-bloods "mestizos"), there are a substantial number of non-Indian Mexicans, such as the Spanish whites that are effectively the ruling class of the country, blacks, Jews, Arabs (Salma Hayek, telecom magnate Carlos Slim), etc.
A "Mexican-American" is a Mexican national in the U.S. Though the U.S. born children of Mexican immigrants usually claim to be "Mexican," this makes no more sense than U.S. born children of Canadian immigrants claiming to be Canadian.
Idiot: Uhm, Vicente Fox ain't brown; how's he former president of Mexico?

A Mexican is a person from Mexico, the only country south of the USA border (unless you count parts of Canada being under Alaska). It's a nationality and not a race. Mexicans can be of any race while most of them are a mix of Spanish and the Native people which explains why some Mexicans look like Native Americans.
Most Americans, including Mexican-Americans, are ignorant and think all hispanic people are Mexican and that all Mexicans are one race of people that spoke Spanish since the begining of time and before Christopher Colombus arrived. That obviously is not true.
That Mexican guy lives in Mexico and eats Mexican food.
