Why do people ask *do you speak mexican*?

I have heard this question many times and i cant figure out how ignorant do you have to be to ask such a dumb question. Hello Mexican is a race not a language. Or they ask "are you spanish" When in reality their trying to ask if you hispanic. MMM…spanish is a language duh. So anybody care to explain why some people make such a dumb mistake while asking this?


  1. Mexican is not a race and neither is Hispanic or Spanish.

    Do you speak Canadian? Is Canadian a race? Because Canadians speak English are they "English" or "Anglo-Saxons"? No, No, No, and No.

    Ask yourselves these questions whenever questioning someone’s race.
