. . . a place like Mexico, assuming your skin is pale, you will always be a gringo Americano . . .Not necessarily.
Most people don't realize that Mexicans are not just "brown". What most people consider to be "Mexicans" (i.e., "brown") just have a larger proportion of native Indian forebears, and it is almost exclusively these Mexicans who come to the US. There are also many Mexicans who are predominantly descended from the Spaniards with much less or even no Indian admixture and are as "white" as the proverbial N Europeans.
I have no idea if there are any ethnic/"racial" tensions between the "white" and "brown" Mexicans.
