Esperanza, this kind of racism common to certain indigenous villages in Chiapas also is expressed toward non-indigenous Mexicans. Many years ago I visited Chamula with some "white" Mexicans from the local INI, and we had a very unpleasant encounter with some Chamulan men who had been indulging in the local liquor during a fiesta, probably not the best time to go a-visiting.
