[in 1924]…the Interior Ministry exhorted the Mexican foreign ministry to instruct this consul not to extend visas “to individuals of the Negro race, because this immigration to our country is not advisable.”
…The rule was applied in a completely arbitrary fashion.
“I am an American citizen of mixed race, white, black and Indian; that is, what is commonly called a mulatto,” wrote S. B. W. May to the Secretary of the Interior of Mexico, explaining that he had no intention of settling in Mexico. Despite that, he explained, simply because of the color of his skin, the Mexican consular authorities were denying him permission to enter.
…It did not take long for the vagueness of the criteria to become a motive for conflict among government agencies themselves. In 1928, the Ministry of Public Education hired the English teacher Miguel Menbhardt, a specialist in tropical agriculture, “to serve in the public schools.”
A resident of Belize, Profesor Menbhardt tried to enter Mexico through the border with Quintana Roo, but was arrested in the town of Payo Obispo “in view of being of the negro race.”"

so you’re telling me there’s an alien who regenerates into a completely random form, that he cannot control or determine himself, and who understandably could take millions of different appearances, but who all 13 times just turned into a different skinny white guy
