look at you all acting like babies just because somebody asked whether Selena was Mexican. Everybody has their own opinion and you just have to live with that.

Selena Gomez is mexican. Her name is mexican i mean common "Gomez" is a mexican last name that's my moms last name. "btw i'm mexican" and she was on the spanish channel at the awards.

answered by Guest | 09-05-2010 at 01:39 PM

Emmm
I born in Mexico, I'm Mexican and American, because i born in America. Also, I'm north-american too because Mexico, Canada and USA conform the north of this continent.

Selena was so American like me.

All people how live in USA are so American like Fidel Castro, Evo Morales, Eva Perón, Shakira, Cepillín etc, etc, etc... Its a common mistake, because the "Americans" (Of USA) are megalomaniac. Sorry but is the true.

answered by Mar | 09-06-2010 at 12:54 AM

That's a ridiculous question. LOOK AT HER NAME ... SELENA GOMEZ, both spanish names. And even if she is born in the US doesn't mean she's not Mexican, it just means shes Mexican-American well and shes Italian, so there. you people that are arguing over this are completely insane.

answered by Allie | 09-06-2010 at 01:53 AM

you people are ALL off your rockers. look at her damn name SELENA GOMEZ clearly a spanish name. she may not be born in Mexico but she is in fact some type of spanish and from what i read she is also Italian.
and btw no ones KIND OF ANYTHING! that's the dumbest thing I've heard in a while. her background has spanish in it NOT kind of IT DOES.

answered by Valentina | 09-06-2010 at 02:21 AM

You white people on this thread are so ignorant! You guys wish she was white am I right? Yes I am!
She is 50% Mexican 50% Italian only because she was born in the USA doesn't make her American! STUPID PEOPLE!

answered by Guest | 09-08-2010 at 04:53 PM

kinda mexican?
As a real Mexican American. How in the world can you be kinda Mexican? or anything else? I hate it when people say Hispanic can be black or any race! By doing so you wipe out a people who cannot be who they really are!

I can be born raised and know only German. But that don't make me German. Race and culture are two different things.

Sorry if this sounded like a rant, I'm just sick of people giving being latino some sort of racial value based on sterotypes the media puts out to the masses.
In fact, it is 50% Mexican, 25% Italian and 20% Spanish.
1-50% Mexican, having a Mexican father, Mexican bleeding in his blood, and because the political constitution of the United Mexican States provides that every child of Mexican parent born abroad, be Mexican.
2 "is Italian for the same case above.
3-It is Spanish, because all Mexicans are not exceptions Iberian blood (from Spain), because all the Mexicans are mixed with native Spanish.

4 - Selena Gomez is American in politics, having been born in the USA, but that does not mean you have American blood.

This I know because my mom is Mexican, my dad is German and I'm born in the USA.

wow, you're really ignorant. Implying that Mexican women are ugly, and you must be dumb too.

answered by Guest | 10-18-2010 at 08:12 AM

I discovered Selena Gomez just recently in the Disney show Wizards of Waverly Place.
Selena Gomez looks Mexican, her skin color and face share are very particular. So I'd like to know if she was born in Mexico.
Or maybe she was born in another latin american country like Puerto Rico?
Also, can she speak Spanish?

While the wording of your question may have caused a great amount of people to debate on Selena Gomez' nationality and ethnicity.

So to clarify and hopefully to end all debate:

1. She is an American:
a) National: because she was born in the United States (there are other ways to obtain nationality)
b) Citizen: because she resides in the United States (if she lived elsewhere and acquired citizenship there, she'd be a US National but a citizen of the country you reside in -legally of course).

2. She can be considered Mexican because:
a) Her father is Mexican, which means she has Mexican blood.
b) If her father was born in Mexico or is a Mexican national, then she could also be a Mexican national, which means she could have dual nationality (as a lot of people do).

3. She can be considered Italian because:
a) Her mother is Italian, which means she has Italian blood.
b) If her mother holds Italian nationality, and the laws of Italy allow it, then she could become an Italian national, which means she could have triple nationality (as I know people do).

4. Can be called Latina:
Because her ethnic ancestry comes from a latin american country.

5. Could be called Hispanic because:
The term can be used to denote the culture and people of countries formerly ruled by the Spanish Empire, usually with a majority of the population speaking the Spanish language (Mexico, the majority of the Central and South American countries, and most of the Greater Antilles)

TO CLARIFY:
It is one thing to be of a certain ethnic group and another to be of a certain race, and you should not get it confused.

ETHNICITY:
There are more than 5,000 ethnic groups in the world. Estimates vary, and the classification remains vague and debatable, because there are almost 7000 living languages worldwide according, so one could assume that each language is spoken by at least one ethnic group, meaning there are almost 7000 ethnic groups around the world.

RACE:
The world population can be divided into four major races: Caucasoid, Mongoloid, Negroid and Australoid. But, there really is no universally accepted classification for “race”.

As for who is what, that's where the fun begins.

Mexicans
I honestly don't care if Selena is Mexican or not, Mexican are great people, so long as they aren't sneaking into the country and instead use the legal process everyone else does. You shouldn't be able to walk across the border, have a child, and then be able to not only sign up for our government's welfare program and steal our tax dollars, but also VOTE. Illegal immigrants should not be given more privileges than the people who are here because they worked for it, because they have a right to be here. If you got here using the process everyone else uses, I'll be the first to invite you over for dinner, but if not, stay out of our country, and away from our tax dollars and our polling places!!!

FYI the natives from the AMERICAS (that includes Mexico, the rest of Latin America and the U.S) came to the America's from ASIA so therefore Most Mexicans and Hispanics in general are EURO-ASIAN mixture. Mexican is not a race, it's a culture and MIXTURE of people of European and native(south/east Asian) by majority.

I'm 12 years old and I know that Texas is a district. It is not a state. I also know that Selena Gomez is not dirty or anything like that.
And we were talking about pics of her and how it is so disgusting to even think that she would do that. And stop being so racist: Hispanic, Latino, Mexican, Italian or whatever it is because she is a gorgeous little girl.

She probably would sue the websites that have fakes of her or whatever because it's not nice. PERIOD. Many people don't like it when actresses or actors get ranted on, I'm one of them (the only exception is Justin Bieber or whatever his name is and Chris brown.) you guys should stop doing this to her because she being defamed all over the place as you guys said it. STOP IT NOW, PLEASE.

Her nationality is American. Her heritage is Mexican and Italian. To be born in a specific place does not make you any prettier. It's something called genes. People of all races can be beautiful.

First of all just because last name is Gomez doesn't really mean you're Mexican. Philipino people have spanish last names they got during the invasion by Spain, just like Mexico when it was invaded by Spain so don't assume all people with spanish last names are Mexican plus those names are really spanish last names and true Mexican people are like the Aztecs and Mayans which speak a whole different language like Indians. All Mexicans now speak Spanish a language you all learned when invaded by Spain.

answered by Guest | 01-13-2011 at 01:41 AM

She was born in America, making her nationality American. Her parents are of Mexican and Italian descent, making her ethnicity ... well, of Mexican and Italian descent. There are many ways you could say that respectfully and politically correct, but their pretty specific. But just to clarify she IS American because she was born here, but that doesn't mean her ethnicity is American. Speaking of which, what really defines an American ethnicity? I feel sometimes that America is too diverse to have one ethnicity, sometimes it seems just simply a nationality.

There is no specific look for them. They can be every race so Selena is White I'm 100% sure! her mum is 1000% White and Dad is Mexican by nationality but by race probably White he looks like he is White 70%, 30% Native or less so she is probably White like 90% or more and 10% Native or less! she is White, and by Culture Hispanic. Eva L. looks White also she did a DNA test and yeah she is. I was right. and was so wrong on it?

Like most people are saying (this is to you): Calling someone white or black isn't being racist or wrong. I am Native and is as pale as a cloud. Calling me white, even thought I'm native doesn't make you ignorant. It's because my father is from France.
And to the questioner: I really don't know. She could be... she DOES look like it. I agree. She plays a Mexican.Latino on Wizard's.
I have friends who are Latino and they aren't from Mexico, so maybe her parents are from somewhere else but she looks Mexican.

Selena is Mexican because her dad Ricardo Gomez is Mexican and mom is part Italian so she is a little Mexican but why do you think she looks mexican?
Also I think I am kinda like young Selena because people say I looked like her when she was on barney which isn't funny nor bad.
Also my dad is Spanish plus my mom is Italian but I was born in America like her and part of my family is from Texas and my middle name is Marie.

I am proud to be full Mexican even though I look white, I don't get why you Americans hate us, in fact, you guys hate most races because they immigrate to the US, don't you realize you did the same thing many centuries ago?

And like everyone said before, Selena is half mexican, half italian but she was born in the US.
