The “Non-Aztec” Looking Mexican

Claire Rainey,
Los Alamitos, CA.

I have a friend from Spain who I adore. He is gay, I am a Christian. One day we were road tripping with our mutual friend from France. She was telling us about her new found “love” Fernando who happens to be 100% Mexican. My Spanish friend condemned her for being interested in a Mexican. I threw out the “hey I am a half bean” joke (because I am in fact 50% Mexican) and he responded with “but you are like the “non-Aztec” looking Mexican, the pretty kind! Although this comment was in my favor, I felt offended for the rest of my family and non-family who has a darker complexion. HIS311
