Default Study says there is no such thing as a Mexican

I can see what they mean from a scientific/genetic standpoint, but I think that anyone from Mexico is a Mexican just like anyone from America is an American even though it's not a race. Thoughts?

Medical researchers, doctors and census-takers may lump Latinos or Hispanics into one group, but a giant study of Mexican genetics shows there’s really no such thing.

Mexicans themselves show such extreme diversity that someone from the dry north is genetically as different from someone from the Yucatan as a European is from an East Asian.

Before the Spanish conquerers arrived in the 16th century, Mexico was inhabited by Native Americans who had carved out their own, often isolated, kingdoms.

"Mexico harbors one of the largest amounts of pre-Columbian genetic diversity in the Americas," said Stanford’s Dr. Andres Moreno-Estrada.

It will be important as medicine becomes increasingly tailored based on an individual’s genes. Their specific origin — not just a broad racial group — may provide crucial pointers.

"We can't just clump everyone together and call them European Americans or Mexican Americans,” added Dr. Esteban Burchard of UCSF.

So in the States, it's basically:

Corporations = People
Mexicans = Not people

VINTAGE 'Murica.

Do all other countries besides America take scientific studies the same as national policy? Because this study actually says nothing about American policy. No American decision maker or judge really cares about this and it has no bearing on anything.

Been there, done that, and got the T-shirt, son, and you're just doing reruns.

Hrm? So, they spent a bunch of money to study something that has already been well known since before any of us were ever born? The history of Mexico is one of migration, exploration and tribe isolation followed by European domination, emancipation and American destiny manifestation. Ok, I threw in those last three "-ations" on purpose to be silly, but at least that sentence was accurate! There are still huge populations in Mexico that don't even speak Spanish.

The heart of the matter here is that what we now call Mexico is a relatively very recent geographic apportionment. It would be like creating a brand new country that enclosed parts of contemporary Kazakhstan, Mongolia and Russia, then marveling at the genetic diversity.

..I think the "real" Mexicans would probably be the ones who are from the indigenous indian ancestry.
