It's not a "pitch" just my observations. Not sure how foreigners are treated, as far as I know there aren't any here. There are lots of American born children of Mexicans, some of whom don't really speak Spanish, and I think they are treated differently, at least in schools, but not in their own families. There is also a Mennonite colony one town over, so people are used to seeing blondes or lighter people. I have heard that foreign spouses are not fully accepted and I know a few cases of people who feel that way, but in some cases I think it is less a case of not being accepted as people being curious and asking lots of questions about where they are from, and that is converted into lack of acceptance. I am half Mexican/half Irish and lived in the US for many years, though I have lived more of my life in Mexico than in the US, and I never felt that in spaces I have lived long term, though in Mexico City - especially in touristy areas - I would sometimes have people think I was a tourist, but living for many years in the same neighborhood in DF, I never felt I was treated any differently by people who knew me well. As for here, people in the north of Mexico tend to be taller and a light lighter, so I am not a standout in anyway, I am asked sometimes where I am from - as in what part of Mexico - not what country as the accent from DF is pretty different from the sing-songy kind of accent here.

I have to agree. Every student that I have had in different parts of Latin America admitted that they cheat and it is normal to cheat at school.
