Thank you for this post! I am 1/2 Mexican 1/2 Caucasian and although I have Mexican facial features and identify as Mexican people assume I'm white due to my light complexion. It's frustrating when people share their racisim and ignorance with me and then have the nerve to tell me I don't look Mexican at all. Reading your post helped me realize I'm not alone in this struggle. Thank you.
