How come many people think that Spanish and Mexican are the same?

I’m Spanish and my American classmates at least most of them not all, ask me why I have a Mexican surname and I look white.
It’s sooo anoying.
Spaniards are white. How come people can’t understand that?
And btw, not all Mexicans are brown. Some of them are still pure Spanish blood with no Native American in them.
