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!

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.

A person born in Mexico who has to take a lot of racist shit because a lot of people in the world are very ignorant, specially the americans (not everyone though).

Mexicans are common people like you: the gardener, the pool cleaner or the domestic worker are just social stereotypes.

Other stereotypes include the tequila drinker, the drug dealer or the big sombrero wearing guy which by the way are really hard to find here in México city

Not every mexican are poor, most of the mexicans tourist around the world have large accounts and México city is the second largest city in the world and the first one with museums.

Fajitas is not a traditional mexican food neither is Taco Bell.
In a bar in Madrid...

Italian: Not like you
Mexican: I´m an average mexican guy

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.
