Isnt it ironic that some people look more "american" and do not speak english while others look mexican and do?

I was just thinking how wrong sometimes we americans are about ourselves, I just went down to Mexico on a business trip and i stayed with a Mexican family in a upper-class neighbourhood, and it was new to me to see that there are actually many white mexicans some of them even blonde but they are 100%mexican citizens some of them do not even speak english, on the other hand it is not rare to see in the US speacially in the southern states "mexican-looking people" and some of them are 5th generation mexicans and lost completely the language and they speak English and some of them know nothing of Spanish…I know that race and nationality have nothing to do with each other (specially in America) but still it made me think of stereotypes and how wrong we can be….any similar stories???
