The vast majority of Mexicans are mestizos (those of mixed blood) as well as full-blooded natives (which aren't nearly as numerous, though there are people who claim to be full-blooded who are in actuality Mestizos). There were two groups of Spaniards in the early 19th century when Mexico gained independence. There were creoles (Europeans born in the Spanish colonies -- and generally were not trusted by the Spanish government) and the Peninsulares (people born in Spain and trusted with most high-level governmental posts.)

    The original revolution (which failed) against Spain -- and the one that is celebrated by Mexicans as their independence day -- was led by mestizos, but the one that actually succeeded was led by a creole. (though don't tell that to most Mexicans as those I have talked about this with find that historical fact mildly offensive).
    Holy bat**** insanity. Thanks for making my point.

    I wasn't disagreeing or agreeing with anything you said... I was only pointing out your historical inaccuracy...

    For the record... most Mexicans also don't want to admit this, but most of the Aztecs neighbors HELPED the Spaniards topple them because the Aztecs were such a bloody, brutal society to its conquered neighbors. For most tribes in the Valley of Mexico vicinty, the Spaniards were a Godsend...

    Now, does anyone actually know the origin of the name Mexico? (without looking it up on Wikipedia or other website, of course)

    ALso, perhaps the Mexicans need to be reminded of who Winfield Scott is...

    I wasnt presenting a historical lineage of the people of mehico. I get that you are. My point is simply that for anyone to claim that ANYONE has a 'right' to get 'their' land back is simply foolish. Where does it stop? Which aboriginal tribes owe reparations to which tribes? Countries (including mehico) were formed through conquest.

    You do hear it from Mexicans living in the US that have nothing better to do than stir the ****.

    The average Mexican doesn't care about the land.

    If you hear a rep from one of those groups say he wants the land back, you can count him and maybe 5 people he has talked to but the average mexican can see that for what it is.

    After all rediculousness is not a Mexican trait.
    Thank you for clarifying this. I sincerely appreciate your point of view on how the average Mexican living in Mexico feels. With all the heartache your country is suffering now, I imagine conquering foreign lands is pretty low on its agenda. Be safe.

    Oh brother... dude, you suck. Your assertion was incorrect and you are compounding that stupidity by making assumptions about what I am thinking. Anything else or is this the best you got?

    Does posting gratuitous insults make you happy, too? If so, we collectively must have you dancing on the tables.

    Last edited? What did you decide to edit? And... seeing you keep posting about me being happy makes me happy. Please don't stop. My life is very fragile right now.

    Can't speak for the rest, but I'll do whatever I can to keep your life from falling apart. It 's the least I can do for a fellow human being. Shall I take a stab at the population of NZ now, and get it wrong?

    You even suck at making sucky insults. Wow.

    The point remains as valid now as when originally posted. For mehicans to get 'their' land back would first require there actually be an indiginous people of mehico that were neither conquerer nor conquered. Its pretty evident that that is not the case.

    For the love of god... isn't it pretty ****ing obvious that it was intended to be a lame ass insult? Jeez, you just attempted to ridicule my last retort so this one... what the hell is the point in explaining it, you won't understand it.

    THE point is not what you are saying since your point about what I was saying was incorrect. Your point above is irrelevant due to that fact. Get it? Doubt it.
