QUESTION: I do not have question…and I am not a specialist in the area of genetics but…
ANSWER: Actually no. Most Mexicans are intermixed with European Spanish. I went to Cancun and hired a guide to drive me out into the Yucatan to visit the beautiful Mayan ruins. We drove to the largest and most important Chichen Itza. My guide was of Mayan heritage. Because that region did not contain gold, the Spanish did not really invade that part. He had an arranged marriage by his parents because he said Mayans can only marry Mayans. So that idea that most are of the Red race of Indian descent is limited to really the Yukatan and also in Peru. The majority of Mexicans have long intermarried for generations. When you see a real Mayan, they are noticeable. The rest of Mexico is intermixed as is the United States. Only about 21.5% of Mexico’s population claim to be indigenous Mexicans and of that number, there are many different ethnic groups. They are generally not the people migrating to the USA.
