  1. Mexicans come in many colors and many shapes. Those with lighter skin tend to have more European blood in them mostly Spaniard while those with darker skin tend to have more Azteca or other indigenous blood in them. Many of the Germans in Mexico came from Texas as the article here points out. There were/are also some Mormon colonies in Mexico. Former US presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s father was born in the Mexican state of Chihuahua in a Mormon colony there. As a child he moved back to the USA. You will also find Mennonite communities in the Mexican state of Zacateca.
