Mexico: The crypto and the mulatto

Here in Mexico, a couple of days ago, after my family celebrated the Day of Independence, I caught my Catholic father and sister speaking in high terms about Miguel Hidalgo, the Catholic priest that in 1810 started the war of independence; and José María Morelos, the mulatto that continued Hidalgo’s anti-white wars. While father and daughter recognized that Hidalgo and Morelos killed lots of Iberian white civilians and “from 20,000 to 30,000 prisoners of war,” they, nonetheless, regard them as “heroes.” In the Mexican wars of independence from Spain of 1810 to 1821 my father and sister could have been confused with Spaniards and, still, like many other Mexicans who could pass as Mediterraneans, they side the crypto-Jew and the mulatto. Why?


The 19th century portraits of Hidalgo are fake. All of them used a man of Austrian origin who posed as the father of the independence. Original reports depict Hidalgo with hooked nose. The overwhelming majority of Mexicans ignore that the Catholic priest Hidalgo was probably the son of Jewish conversos. Even the Mexican Jews, no longer cryptos, acknowledge it: “Two genealogical studies of the eighteenth century, the Archivo General de la Nación de Mexico and the Ramo de la Inquisición, suggest that Father Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, the father of Mexican Independence, had a Converso background and that Bartolomé de las Casas, a Bishop who fought to free slaves in Nueva España, also had Jewish ancestors.” In case of my family, they are under the naïve impression that both Hidalgo and Las Casas were of pure Spanish origin.

But what about the mulatto Morelos? The 1944 edition of José Vasconcelos’ A Brief History of Mexico that my father read long ago, says (my translation):

For Morelos, for example, to be comparable to Washington, it must be assumed that Washington had decided to recruit blacks and mulattoes to kill the English. Instead, Washington disdained blacks and mulattoes and recruited the English of America, who did not commit the folly of killing their own brothers, uncles, and relatives, only because they were born in England. Quite the contrary, each participant of the American Revolution felt pride for his British ancestry and hoped for the betterment of the English. This should have been the sense of our own emancipation, to transform New Spain into an improved Spain, better than that of the peninsula but with its blood, our blood. The whole later disaster of Mexico is explained by the blind, criminal decision that emerged from the womb of Hidalgo’s mobs and is expressed in the suicidal cry: “Death to the Spaniards!”

So why many Mexicans who physiognomically could pass as southern Italians, Greeks or Spaniards side the mulatto against their blood? Recently, for example, my father’s orchestra composition, La Espada (The Sword), was a success in Mexico City: an homage to the mulatto Morelos (my father has zero black blood by the way).

The music is good—the first ten minutes can be listened in the above clip—, but the libretto is outrageous. The poet Carlos Pellicer (1897-1977) wrote it and my father adapted it for 150 voices and orchestra:

Tú fuiste una espada de Cristo,
que alguna vez, tal vez, tocó el demonio.
Gloria a ti por la tierra repartida.
Perdón a tu crueldad de mármol negro…
Gloria a ti al igualar indios, negros y blancos…
Gloria a ti que empobreciste a los ricos
Y te hiciste comer de los humildes,
Procurador de Cristo en el Magníficat.

My rough translation:

You [Morelos] were a sword of Christ,
once, perhaps, touched by the devil.
Glory to you for distributing the land.
Sorry for your cruelty of black marble…
Glory to you for equating indians, blacks and whites…
Glory to you that made the rich poor
And made the humble eat,
Attorney of Christ in the Magnificat.

When Pellicer said “touched by the devil” he meant the killings of unarmed Iberian whites that the mulatto ordered in cold blood. That’s why Pellicer said “black marble”: Morelos’ appearance was even darker than the Amerind skin! So much that, to avoid being called names, Morelos covered his curly hair—obvious black heritage—with the legendary bandana that adorns his head in every single picture that represents him.

JOSE MARIA MORELOS Y PAVONThe rest of my rough translation of the famed poet needs no explanation. However, as far as I know Catholic Pellicer (whom I met as a child when my family visited him at Tepoztlán) didn’t have black blood either. You can imagine where all of these ethno-suicidal ideas came from: the religion of the inversion of values of these Body-snatched Mexican Pods, my family included.


  1. See also Hunter Wallace’s “Caribbean Project – Review: A Hidden Race”.

  2. How many Mexicans are there that could be considered South European? If a Mexican has some amerindian (asian) ancestry, it’s usually quite noticeable. Sadly, Hollywood has taken to using Mexicans to play Italians in some features. The Count of Monte Christo and Band of Brothers: Pacific featured two disgusting examples.

    Andy Garcia looks Euro. Jon Seda and Luis Guzman do not.

    • In Guadalajara people are whiter than the capital. Here in the capital I would guess that about 3 percent look southern European, but the darker browns live in their neighborhoods. There’s still a tiny fraction that looks Nordish though.

  3. Interesting post, Chechar. I’m linking to it. Your father’s composition is impressive!

    • Thanks. I have severely criticized my father more than once in this blog, but yes: his music is good (in the future I might add a very moving piece for piano composed by him and played by my mother, also in YouTube).

      • Yes, please put it on YouTube.

      • Alas, after my Mac broke down I am unable to upload more videos in my YouTube account.

        If you could send me a little postage cash thru regular mail, I will send you the DVD containing several of my father’s compositions, including the ones I mentioned above—a commercial disk like the one that can be purchased here at certain stores of music; not a mere homemade copy.

        If you are interested, email me to exchange postal addresses.

  4. Crypto’s, their presence explains many points of history.

    • Yup.

  5. Wow! Maybe Bolivar, Santander and other proceres of La Independencia de Colombia were also conversos…It makes you think the history in a different way

    • Agreed.

  6. During the Independence war in my country (venezuela) we had a general whose objective was to kill as many white venezuelans they could, his name is Jose Tomaz Bovez; what is even worse is that he was white of Spaniard ancestry, he used to be called the white killer of whites.

    Unfortunate and depressing part of the history of this mongrelized country.

    • Latin American whites or those harnizos, castizos and mestizos who give far more weight to their white blood than their Amerind blood, will have to rewrite history once a pure Aryan ethnostate is created at the North. Hadn’t the Anglos betrayed the Germans, those histories would be already available in Spanish by now.

      • Just out of curiosity, what do the various -izos signify? I only remember mestizo and mulatto.

      • Roughly, you may detect visually that a castizo may have Amerind blood although he’s not as obvious as a mestizo; a harnizo however is s/he who may be confused for a Levantine or a European Mediterranean because s/he has even lighter skin and more gracile facial features; though there’s still some Amerind blood in his or her veins. None of them have black blood however. [Note of 2014: I got it wrong. Mexican racists told me this year that harnizos are a mixture between mestizos and castizos.]

        The New Spaniards were fond of making lots of classifications. Their classification also included the various mongrelizations between blacks and Amerinds and mestizos.

  7. Interesting insight into the status of whites as a minority in Mexico. It’s amazing how some whites are completely deracinated and even cheer historical murderers of their race. Do you know any other whites in Mexico who are conscious of racial issues? Why don’t start a chapter with them down there? I have heard that Mexico has a strong ruling class which is mostly comprised of people from European descent. Probably most of them harbor unconscious notions of difference/superiority. Why not try outreaching and ethnic networking with them?

    • But you are in Mexico City, aren’t you? You know that that would be quite impossible.

      You know that real whites, or at least those who are of 100% Spanish ancestry (the “criollos”), are a tiny minority here; and that the trouble with castizos, and even harnizos who look European [see 2014 note above], is that you can mention the subject of race in private if no “apiñonado” is present (Mexican slang for a person of rather light brown skin: e.g., a castizo or lighter mestizo). But won’t you agree with me that it would be unthinkable to do anything political, or even intellectual about it like publishing something?

      Unless you are only visiting Mexico, you must know that these whiter Mexicans are living under an astronomic inertia of history—a history of no less than half a millennium of mestization, plus the last decades of Judeo-American brainwashing and nihilistic hedonism…

      • Of course, the zeitgeist of racial unawareness is strong, but I imagine that if racial nationalism is to be of any importance in the future, efforts must be made to bring awareness to a broader crowd.

        It seems to me that places like Mexico, where the descendants of Europeans are so economically dominant, are particularly fertile grounds for ethnic networking. Even if they are a minority it seems to me that their economic power and dynamics of domination could be a useful tool to expand on.

        I don’t know much about Mexico. I have been here in the City since last night but I am only passing by (I have been sent on a short business trip to nearby Queretaro).

        In the tech company I work for, the hierarchy between whites and non-whites is pretty clear. Most of the low wage workers are brown Mexicans while the managerial class is composed of whites (mostly upper class Mexicans from Mexico City, from what I’ve gathered).
        The racial divide in Mexico is something to be studied by the movement. I have yet to see a poor white man in Mexico.

      • True: there are no white beggars or homeless in Mexico. But you cannot do anything until the taboo to speak about these subjects is broken among the whitish Mexicans.

        The tragedy is that there’s no Spanish-speaking intellectual that speaks freely about it; only a few bloggers on the internet. For any drastic change you really need openness and at least printed media and a crisis that moves the harnizos [Note of 2014: I meant: castizos] to question the accepted dogma.

        Absolutely nothing will change in Mexico as long as it behaves as a co-dependent nation of the US, which is the most serious enemy of the white race. (And nothing will happen in the US until the economic crisis hits Americans hard, which is coming anyway.) The most serious problem is that harnizos always have castizo (see above) or mestizo relatives, which makes psychologically impossible to think of themselves as “whites”.

        A major crisis is needed to make a dent to the current zeitgeist. I believe that whitish Latin Americans are condemned to extinction unless an Aryan revival starts in the North.
