I always was taught there were only 4 races. Black, white,

This really depends on what theory you are following:

 

Here is what I have:

 

White- Caucasion

Black- Ethiopian

Yellow- Mongolian

Red- American Indian

Brown- Malay

 

Hispanic would be a mix of the White and Red race.

what if your ancestors are from spain and you have no mixture of our american indian?
Expert:  Teacher Editor replied 5 years ago.
Those of European descent are considered to be Caucasion or white. These are subjective definitions so they are not universally defined. It depends on who you ask and where you are.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I accept your answer. My birth certificate states white as do my parents death certificates state white. People do not understand that Mexico is a country not a race. I met a dentist husband and wife when I went with a friend to Mexico City and they were German, but they are Mexican because they were born in that country. They are still from the white race. If you are born in Mexico and are black you are Mexican but you are from the black race. All my family and my spouse's family birth certificates state white, we are not black, red, or asian. Mexico has every race but there are several from the white race, just as Americans of spanish decent and we are from the white race.
