    Let’s consider some football players from Estudiantes de La Plata (Argentina). Johnathan Schunke, Juan Foyth and Santiago Ascacibar. If their grandparents had moved to the US, they would be considered white of German, Polish and French ancestry. However, their ancestors moved from Europe to Argentina, a country where Spanish is spoken. Acording to US-citizens, you are white only if you speak English and live in the US or Commowealth countries. Speaking the Spanish language change your genes. Another actor who grew up in Argentina is Vigo Mortensen. I guess Vigo is also considered a “man of color” in the US. A century ago, Argentina received seven million Europeans (second only to the US), but US citizens cannot acept the fact that a Latin American country can be white.
