I don't think gringos realize how their ordinary speech is full of derogatory references to Mexico and Mexicans. They don't mean any harm when they say...well..."this is Mexico after all". Meaning ..."what do you expect?" I find a basic disrespect for this country listening to ordinary people who basically love Mexico and Mexicans, constantly making derogatory and unflattering remarks and not even realizing how patronizing they are.
