"6. Mexicans are a mixture of indian and Spanish or other non-indigenous people.
7. Indians came here from Asia."
Thank you, thank you, thank you! ONE intelligent response to this whole thing!
My TRUE Mexican friends (from lower Mexico) just laugh at this bunch of fakes. My friends actually speak pretty good English (they worked very hard to learn it, but they did!) AND they also speak the true formal Spanish...not the Tex-Mex junk.
As far as American Indians are concerned, most of them are quite proud to use the term "Native Americans". I have no latino/spanish/mexican/indian blood, but I AM a Native American. Why the term 'aboriginal American' is a term they can't use is beyond me. If I walked around saying I'm a white, European/German/Scot/Irish/English/etc./tax-paying/female/blah/blah, do you suppose I'd get extra attention?
I am thinking anyone who has any sort of Mexican roots and was born in the USA should start demanding free services from Mexico. My great grandmother was born in Mexico. So, I want part of your house, Vincente Fox.
