    Laugh out loud because it's a nationality and they don't know the difference between nationality and race.

    That depends on your definition for race. Not everyone subscribes to race by skin color.

    Mesoamerican, Mexican, Mezio, Mezita and even 'chicano do in fact come from the same root word.

      But more importantly, you see it written as Messio or Mejico even to this day. Mechico isn’t used anymore but rather it becomes the slang term ‘Chico or ‘Chicano (Xicano).

    The people of Mesoamerica and South America and the Carribean are not quite a race in traditional terms as the population is largely a mixture of European, African and Native American genes. The original inhabitants of the Carribean islands was wiped out by disease and was later replaced by Europeans and African slaves.

    The majority of the Africans imported to the Americas were sent to the Carribean and South America. It has greatly impacted the racial make up of that region.

    The term racist has been often misused when referring to bigotry based on  someone's country of origin. Technically it is not correct, but words are used to convey a message, and in the case of using racist when discussing bigotry or discrimination based on country of origin, language,  or ethnicity the term racism, although inaccurate conveys the correct message. I don't get upset by this minor error.
