Some (many actually) Americans (and others tbh) think the whole Latin America is like Mexico.....or better, think all the latin-americans are like mexican-americans considering themselves a "race"....

How many of you know Argentina and argentinos ?

Globally, whiteness is tied to dominant cultural norms. There is no objective "white" because race isn't objectively real; it's a social construction that uses both cultural and phenotypical associations to classify social groups.
This.

Big jaw, but if he told me he was a spaniard, Portuguese, Italian or some other Latin European I would believe him.

Put a sombrero on him and itīs obvious to me that no one in US would consider him white........and heīs a spaniard, an european.

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

And donīt tell me he is an exception because a guy like him isnīt rare in Spain....not at all.....

PS - is Pedro from Barcelona......football player.....

Not what I said actually.....many americans think latino is a "race"....and most of them have more contact only with mexican-americans, and many mexican-americans apparently also believe that they are a "race".....and mexicans generally are more brown than the rest of latin america, especially more than South America for sure.
I know it sounds weird to many of you, but we always put the nationality spirit before anything...no one view you by your "race" like happens in some other places, like USA.....
