Saying something stereotypical about Mexicans is widely considered racist. For example, in most big cities a person would look like an ignorant asshole if they said all Mexicans are day laborers or they drink a lot of tequila. And if someone had the audacity to say it anyway, there’s a good chance that a person of Mexican descent would be nearby to put him in his place. Don’t get me wrong, racism against Mexicans happens all the time, but it’s much less blatant than what I deal with every day from non-Natives. I can’t seem to stop people from comparing me to whatever vision of Indian stereotypes they have put together in their head – from history books and frequent viewings of Pocahontas – and there aren’t enough Native Americans in the world to teach the offenders a lesson.
