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.

Old paintings of “Mexicans” in Mexico City

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

2018-11-12 21:43:15 UTC  

I was under the impression that Argentina is majority white. Not sure where the 30% came from

2018-11-12 21:43:37 UTC  

Stan Lee died

2018-11-12 21:43:50 UTC  

@ThisIsChris I've argued for that in the past

2018-11-12 21:43:52 UTC  

@TMatthews DNA studies show 75% European

2018-11-12 21:44:31 UTC  

Deep

2018-11-12 21:44:50 UTC  

Argentinians

2018-11-12 21:44:51 UTC  

@TMatthews I don’t know how accurate that map is, I thought Argentina was whiter than that too.

2018-11-12 21:45:08 UTC  

But yeah I'm actually kind of a fan of the conclusions, getting rid of the timezones. It would make a lot of things easier.

2018-11-12 21:45:17 UTC  

That’s the impression I got when I was there. Though again, there are definitely areas that are very mixed and much darker and more South American.

2018-11-12 21:45:23 UTC  

Well the map says over 85% European ancestry

2018-11-12 21:45:36 UTC  

So 80% doesn't count?
