Regardless of the validity of your observation about the use of Mexican Americans in the private business sector, I think it is a real stretch to suggest that Zapata and Avila's ethnicity may in some way explain the incident on Hwy 57 in San Luis Potisi. Nearly all victims of narco reténes are Mexican nationals, not US citizens so cultural differences is not a very compelling argument. A more likely explanation for the outcome is that Zapata felt his diplomatic status was some degree of protection and refused to comply, assuming he and his partner were not targeted for assassination.
