If someone is Mexican with light/white skin, would that racially make them White?

The idea of "Race" originated from 18th century Anthropologists, who used phenotypic traits to separate people into different racial groups.

I don't feel like that means your skin color is automatically your race though, as no one refers to a population as "straight hairs," since that is a phenotypic trait as well. Skin color is an adaptive trait as well. 

Furthermore, that was also 18th century Anthropology. At that state of science, human classifications were simplified extremely. Race is a biological myth, and a social construct. 

Is it not used to help identify your race, and not inherently your race?

    Hispanics used to be often classified as white. It was during the Nixon Administration that they were split into a separate group.

    Hispanics are Europeans. They are descended from the spaniards

    1st vaccine shuts off your immune system; 2nd vaccine gives you diseases; 3rd vaccine puts your immune system back and it will start fighting the diseases and will cause death. Chipped vaccines = mark of the beast.

    Sakashvilli and his wife are the heads of human organ harvesting operation during war in Ukraine. They send organs of civilians and organs of soldiers to Israel and America. Someone is hit by car or bullet, then their organs are harvested and sent abroad.

    Holy hell mRNA vaccine by Moderna contains *Luciferin* dissolved with *66.6* ml of distilled *phosphate* buffer solution.

    ...mark of the beast...that's what it is...

    all vaccines are chipped

    all vaccines have cells of aborted fetuses in them

    Police stop you at checkpoint to check if you’re chipped (aka vaccinated)

    Police check the car; let's say 4 people car but signal only from 3; so, police stop it to chip the notyetchipped; signal from 4 now and police let the car go. This is prophecy by saint Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov. Notice police chip (aka vaccinate) people at gun point in Africa; so, no more "it's not gonna happen here" 'cuz it will soon enough, capisce?

    Police do it on highways or when you leave your city... basically, you can't leave your city unless you're vaccinated; but vaccine = mark of the beast; so, escape now while your city doesn't have these rules; forgive me.

    Gov't sprays chemtrails so that people feel symptoms of flu

    5G will kill vaccinated; just read Georgia Guidestones' commandment of 500 million max population on earth; it fits with Orthodox Christian prophecy of 7 percent of people left

    Russian Orthodox prophecy also says that there will be unbearable stench in winter. So, there you go. Russian winters are cold. So, they must have died from the new disease that doesn't have a name 'cuz it's caused by 5G.

    martial law; Constitution was suspended; New World Order

    read Book of Revelation; Chapters 13 and 14, please

    chipped people will be influenced by super computers to receive World Passport (grey plastic card with no name on it), but when they stretch their hands to get it, gov't clerk presses secret button to administer the unforgivable green 666 tattoo by isotope rays

    If you escape mark of the beast, then your direct ancestors go to permanent heaven

    how to escape it? by hiding within a small group (10 - 15 people according to saints Gabriel Urgebadze and Seraphim of Sarov); no documents; no electronics

    Project Pogo = Alex Jones, QAnon, Adam Green, etc. videos are put out so that gov't tracks who watches them. (Project Zyphr annihilates people who watch these videos). Drone with scopolamine will drill a hole in your window at 4 am. Once gassed, you will come out to the police van (waiting for you outside) yourself; you will be taken to underground camp to be tortured for adrenochrome. The rest of the people will be secretly (or even openly) chipped when they sign up for food in closed stores

    AI (artificial intelligence aka demons) will post on your social media as if it were you doing it while you're on vacation; it will even make phone calls on behalf of you; no one will notice that you're missing in action.

    Source(s): Blood/body of Jesus kills parasites. Orthodox Christian three hand signs are different than Buddhist mudras. Ecumenism = 263 heresies; each heresy leads to hell. Orthodoxy = the only true faith; Roman Catholics tried one cup - one spoon ritual and got sick with Bubonic plague; if heresy enters Orthodox monastery then monks/nuns will get sick with flu/tuberculosis (for instance); Orthodox churches who closed for COVID or had disposable cups/spoons or dipped spoon into alcohol are no longer brides of Christ (now they serve Satan and honor Satan's new COVID religion). Patriarch Irenaios 1st blessed Catacomb movement more than five years ago; what you need is antimins (remains of saints sewn into a towel), wax candles, one cup and one spoon.

    Not for the census of the United States. The Census Bureau defines "Hispanic or Latino" as "a person of Cuban, Mexican, Puerto Rican, South or Central American or other Spanish culture or origin regardless of race."

    Mexican is a nationality, not a race. Racism was invented by brown muslim males in ancient times.

    Arabs called African Blacks (typically East Africans) the 'Zanj'. Most Arab writers who spoke disparagingly of black Africans had never traveled to subSaharan Africa. Many of their tales were based on hearsay. In the Arab world, as in Europe, there was also a necessity to justify the enslavement of black Africans by portraying them as subhuman.

    Ibn Battuta, 14th century"We know that the Zanj (blacks) are the least intelligent and the least discerning of mankind, and the least capable of understanding the consequences of actions."

    Ibn Battuta, 14th century"Galen says that merriment dominates the black man because of his defective brain, whence also the weakness of his intelligence."

    "Therefore, the Negroe nations are, as a rule, submissive to slavery, because [Negroes] have little [that is essentially] human and have attributes that are quite similar to those of dumb animals, as we have stated."Ibn Khaldun, _Muqaddimah_, 14th century AD

    Yes. Many Latin Americans are considered white by some governments. Many Mexicans have European ancestors. Spaniards invaded many localities in Latin America and they took native women as wives. Later migrations from Europe also resulted in more Mexicans having European ancestors. In fact studies have shown that many Mexicans have blond hair and blue eyes. Native Americans are descendants of a small group of North Asians who crossed over from Siberia to North America when the last ice age ended 13,000 years ago. These North Asians are NOT close relatives of the Chinese. Instead their ancestors came from Central Asia (present day Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan) and they migrated to Siberia about 40,000 years ago. In fact Europeans also evolved from Central Asians who migrated to Europe 40,000 years ago. That means Native Americans and Europeans are actually distant relatives, and they share a more recent common ancestor with each other  than either group does with the Chinese or with Africans. The Chinese share a common ancestor with Central Asians, Australian aborigines and Europeans about 60,000 years ago. Light skin is an adaptation to cold climates. People in cold climates wear clothes and the clothes block out the sun, resulting in reduced vitamin D production and rickets. To adapt the Chinese and Europeans evolved light skin to absorb as much sunlight as possible to prevent rickets.
