Hi everyone! I was wondering about my classification.
My maternal grandfather is from Mexico and my maternal grandmother's family is directly from Spain. My mother identifies as Mexican
My father's family is completely American, hailing from Western Europe at least a century ago.
So that makes me 1/4 Mexican 1/4 European Spanish and 1/2 White Caucasian.
I live with my father and step mother (white), but I look not-white and speak Spanish very well. (If that counts for anything, it's just hard to word. I'm pretty much just a Texan)
What is the exact percentage one needs to be to claim Hispanic origin?
