Mexico City, September 12
Mexico mentioned on Friday it has banned a overseas girl from re-entering the nation after she was caught on video calling a girl in Mexico City a “horrible Indian.”
The overseas girl was apparently indignant at one among her Mexican neighbours over tree-trimming on their avenue, and at one level calls her the Spanish phrase “india horrible,” an insulting technique to seek advice from Indigenous or dark-skinned folks.
The National Migration Institute mentioned the foreigner caught a flight out of Mexico after the incident earlier this week and that she could be prohibited from returning.
The company didn’t determine the lady or her nationality, however she is heard on the video talking with a robust Argentine accent and after the incident the Argentine Embassy posted a press release condemning the incident.
The embassy wrote on its Facebook web page, “Regarding the events made public yesterday involving people who are apparently Argentine citizens, the country’s Embassy in Mexico rejects and condemns any expression of discrimination and/or gender violence.” It was unclear why ethnicity got here up in any respect.
The incident occurred in Mexico City’s upscale Hipódromo-Condesa neighborhood, the place few Indigenous folks can afford to stay. Most Mexicans have some Indigenous ancestry and are sometimes darker-skinned than Argentines, whose ancestors had been usually immigrants from Europe.
There have been complaints up to now amongst Mexicans that lighter-skinned Argentines are conceited or get preferential remedy in Mexico. — AP
