Some are, but they’re definitely a minority

2018-11-12 21:30:21 UTC  

@NateDahl76 The crioles, right? They don't even come over here.

2018-11-12 21:30:31 UTC  

Or criollos

2018-11-12 21:30:32 UTC  

Mexicans are racist AF. Even to each other. There’s definitely a pretty clear caste system. Also they hate black people. If your a “gringo” normally your fine but you’ll always be an outsider.

2018-11-12 21:32:16 UTC  

@Nerv - VAyes and the caste system clearly favors those of European descent.

2018-11-12 21:32:55 UTC  

@ExternalPepsi there are definitely white Mexicans. If you watch mexican TV with the sound off about 80% of the shows you would think were made in America or Europe. The people you think of as Mexicans are basically not even allowed on TV. White people run Mexico.

2018-11-12 21:34:36 UTC  

@Nerv - VA They're a small minority though. The people I think of as Mexicans are your average Mexican.

2018-11-12 21:34:58 UTC  

Here are a few interesting maps.

2018-11-12 21:35:09 UTC  

@ExternalPepsiyeah because white Mexicans have no reason to leave Mexico.

2018-11-12 21:35:17 UTC  

They’re not sending their best.

2018-11-12 21:35:39 UTC  

I agree just saying the ruling class you probably couldn’t differentiate in a line up from white Americans.@ExternalPepsi

2018-11-12 21:35:51 UTC  

There are plenty of very white looking ones that are still very Mexican

2018-11-12 21:36:01 UTC  

Mexico’s just very thoroughly mixed.

2018-11-12 21:36:15 UTC  

Mexican as in citizens but clearly of European heritage.

2018-11-12 21:36:18 UTC  

@Nerv - VA Yeah probs not

2018-11-12 21:36:44 UTC  

Surely some exist in Brazil as well considering Portuguese influence.

2018-11-12 21:37:03 UTC  

There are tons in Brazil

2018-11-12 21:37:11 UTC  

How many “white Mexicans” insist on being minorities though?

2018-11-12 21:37:15 UTC  

Yea there’s a lot of Italians and germans in Brazil.

2018-11-12 21:37:45 UTC  

Jorge Ramos is clearly white, but makes his living on attacking this country’s white majority.

2018-11-12 21:37:50 UTC  

Old paintings of “Mexicans” in Mexico City

2018-11-12 21:38:08 UTC  

Spaniards

2018-11-12 21:38:46 UTC  

Brazil is very interesting. There are people who are lighter skinned than I am I’ve met. Then there are dark blacks

2018-11-12 21:39:10 UTC  

Southern Brazil is very white

2018-11-12 21:39:12 UTC  

It’s the passport most used in fraud because of the diversity

2018-11-12 21:39:14 UTC  

Brazil is the same demographic situation as us, only a few more decades ahead.

2018-11-12 21:39:24 UTC  

Yes ^

2018-11-12 21:39:47 UTC  

Argentina has a pretty strong white majority though, from what I’ve read.

2018-11-12 21:39:53 UTC  

Very much

2018-11-12 21:39:55 UTC  

With very little native presence, and almost no blacks.

2018-11-12 21:40:08 UTC  

I go down there with my fiancé for polo. All white.

2018-11-12 21:40:17 UTC  

Outside of the cities at least

2018-11-12 21:40:22 UTC  

Which can be more mixed

2018-11-12 21:40:34 UTC  

@Alexander Pechorin What do the percentages look like?

2018-11-12 21:41:05 UTC  

Well I don’t spend much time in Buenos, which is mixed. The ranches and stuff we visit are nearly 100% white. They look like Germans who have Spanish names

Although, keep in mind, I think “white” as a category is very loose in Latin America and includes middle easterners of all varieties and people who are like a quarter non white.

2018-11-12 21:42:08 UTC  

It can be very easy to get an isolated picture. SA countries are very segregated, including Argentina

2018-11-12 21:42:40 UTC  

Our developer team is all Uruguay based. A few of them moved to Austin and I flew out to see them. Probably half of them looked like me.

2018-11-12 21:42:42 UTC  

Didn't expect that from Brazil
