Someone from Mexico or of Mexican descent. Many Mexicans live in the United States because it is safer and easier to find jobs than much of Mexico. Many do not speak English and have to take low-paying jobs, or are unemployed. Many live in Urban areas, but they can be found anywhere especially in southern states that are close to Mexico. They often form communities that are all Mexican or shared with other Hispanics such as South Americans or Puerto Ricans. They are often discriminated against by Americans, who believe that all Mexicans are illegal immigrants. They are often stereotyped as being poor and/or uneducated.
Because of the number Mexicans and Hispanics in the US. Spanish is rapidly growing as a language.

1)Someone from mexico or someone with mexican descendance.
2)the word that ignorant people use to describe someone who has latino descent cause they dont know that mexico is not only the country who speaks spanish. Some countries like Brazil speak portugese and they are still latinos. This needs to stop isntantly who the fuck gave them that idea that we are all mexican. Latinos come from mexico, central america, south america, and the caribbean.
