When people use “Mexican”

to describe every single person whose descendants originated from Central or South America I want to punch them in the face. “Mexico” is a country, not an umbrella term to describe all people who look like they speak Spanish. 

I hate when my friends do this to me because it takes away from my family’s culture and makes us seem inferior to Mexico.
