Mexico Home of Speedy Gonzales , Bumblebee Man , and Guillermo del Toro , Mexico can stir up more emotion in three syllables than can be wrought from a Wangst filled Romantic Plot Tumor . Whether it's love or hate depends entirely on the person. On Mexicans Mexico's almost as racially diverse as Brazil and Mexicans dance nearly as passionately as Cubans but with twice the talent. There's a sizable part of Mexicans who don't like their country (Mostly on the border states and rich-to-middle-class people). Another phenomenon is Malinchismo: a very old and widespread tendency to show any unjustified preference, however slight, for foreign over national stuff. Mexicans range all over on the political spectrum but most are religiously conservative Catholics. Also, as per Hispanic custom, Mexicans have two family names: the first is the father's one, and the second is the mother's. Only the father's name is passed on to the next generation though. Also you can have more than one name.
