Are most Mexicans black via the one drop rule?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mexicans#Genetic_stu...

Most Mexicans are around 5% African genetically speaking. This makes them over 1/16th Black and ***** by Jim Crow standards. Can Mexicans now identify as Black Americans now?

    The one-drop-rule and the belief that humans come in races have been proven wrong around 1950.

    Percentages have no meaning in genetic reality.

    Yes, this isn't new

    2.5% of that comes from when the African Arabs conquered Hispania. The Spaniards brought to the natives in the Americas.

     I dare you to look around. If someone is all Italian and a sunny two days come, they can be tanned as dark as their hair in the two days!  No genes for others needed!~
