¡Ask a Mexican!

¡Ask a Mexican!

Dear Mexican: My most beloved niece married a boy of Mexican extraction. I am very fond of him, but he and his family kind of hold us all at arm's length. It's very difficult to get close and has made me back off. My niece has told me that his mother "doesn't like white people." Wouldn't it be better to get to know me before deciding you don't like me? Isn't her attitude racist?

    ¡Ask a Mexican!

    Dear Mexican: Why do Mexicans make up such glaringly obvious lies? Like this galán who had his sister call me and say she was really him with a cold? Or my friend who pretends to be traveling around the world but is really sending emails from his mother's home computer?

    Dear Mexican: Do Mexicans know that if just one of their grandparents was born in Spain, they could immigrate immediately not just to Spain, but also any other country in the European Union? I know this is not an option for a lot of Mexicans, but it certainly seems like a better one for those that have the "Spanish" option.
