Is that Mexican ancestry Spanish Mexican? Because if you are an Indian or mestizo Mexican you most likely do not look Polish and me and many other people do not consider you Polish. It would be like Halle Berry going to England and saying she's English because her mom was. She'd just get stares and people not believing her.
Mexican ancestry. From Chihuahua Mexico to be exact. My brother and I definitely have European features. My sister was fortunate enough to get the olive skin dark hair and brown eyes. She highly resembles Jennifer Garner. If Patrick Swazy and David Duchovny had a love child, that would be me... Only taller, heavier, and with blue eyes... Damn good looking if I do say so myself :) Now that I'm divorcing, I get a lot of beautiful women as well... :) My brother got the polish nose...Bad for him, good for me! :) I have to say that I never burn in the sun and get a great tan, though ...
As far as being considered Polish or not, I can care less what others or you think. However small the percentage may be, genetics don't lie. We have so many different people from all over the world here in So Cal, that being born and raised here we grow up accepting people for who and what they are.
Using the word mestizo, mulato to a hispanic is like using the n-gg-r word. It is extremely offensive and racist.
I don't think the term is equal to that of the word nigg_r . N_gger is much more derogatory IMHO...
The irony is that I joined this site because I was excited to learn a little about where my ancestors came from as well as learn about Polish people and their views. It has now become rather discouraging. I guess ya have to take the good with the bad.
Today I met a mason and his apprentice who are Polish. They were building pillars for some entry gates around the corner from here. It appears that they do good work quickly at a very good rate. I wonder if he has the same views as "peace" does.... He stands to make a pretty profit off me. I think I'll use the young and eager Italian/Mexican kid who bid a little more instead... Thanks peace, ya just cost me an extra 1700.00usd :)
