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