1.) They look down on you cuz your an American not because your a ''Chicana''
2.) I'm an American living in Mexico.
3.) Mexican is not a race, believe me if a person is born in the U.S and comes to Mexico and say's he or she is a Mexican prepare yourself cuz everyone A.K.A real Mexicans or Americans that have been here sometime and got it thru there heads that Mexican is not a race, are going to laugh or make fun of you one way or another.
4.) Gringo or Gringa, yup your considered a Gringo or Gringa no mater if your Hispanic , Asian , Black,etc.., if you were born in the U.S you are a Gringo or Gringo. Gringo just means a person born in the U.S, people often think that this means a white person when it does not.
5.) Stop saying Mexican is a race cuz its not.
6.) I love Mexico and its people I grew up here there is no other place I rather call home :D
