By most definitions, MexicanAmericans are not a separate race. Most people consider MexicanAmericans an ethnic group. Racism discriminates against people with specific physical characteristics, such as dark skin and kinky hair. I don't think MexicanAmericans have experienced real racism. Also, they have not experienced official segregation. However, they have been the victims of prejudice. People have looked at all MexicanAmerican and assumed they have the same negative characteristics of a stereotype.

Please check the definitions of those terms, and then decide if any of them apply to MexicanAmericans.
