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 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 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: where are you from?
Mexican: I'm from México
Italian: No way!!! you are spanish or italian!!!
Mexican: Nope I´m from México
Italian: You don't look like a mexican
Mexican: How do mexicans look like?
Italian: Not like you
Mexican: I´m an average mexican guy

A Mexican man walks into a bar.

Please note that he's the *only* Mexican person there and all the other guys are white.

Suddenly one of the white guys walks up to the Mexican guy and says...

"Hey you! Colored men aren't allowed, much less welcome here!"

Then, the Mexican guy turns around and says to the white guy...

"Hey pendejo... When I was born, I was brown!"

"When I grew up, I was brown!"

"When I am sick, I'm brown!"

"When I'm in the sun, I'm brown!"

"When I'm in the cold, I'm brown!"

"And when I die, I'll still be brown!"

"But on the other hand you, pendejo, when you were born, you were pink!"

"When you grew up, you were white!"

"When you're sick, you turn yellow or even green!"

"When you're in the sun, you turn red!"

"When you're in the cold, you turn blue!"

"And when you die, you'll turn purple!"

"And you have the nerve and the balls to call me a "colored man!?" Ha ha!"
Pass it on...

(Note that I'm not racist. I'm Mexican myself. I just found this joke in some latino guy's myspace page and so since I thought it was pretty funny, I decided to translate it to English and post it here.)
