Why do ppl think in order to be mexican you have to be dark and speak spanish?

So I’m just really annoyed because my cousin and i are really close but im more of a brown color and she is pretty fair. When we tell ppl that we are cousins they don’t believe us because im brown and she
is lighter skin color than me. They say she is not mexican because "she is white and doesn’t speak spanish". I tell them im mexican and i can’t speak spanish either, they say "but your brown".
It’s not like she is mixed both her parents are mexican, her mom is as dark as me and her dad is light skinned but still mexican. She just came out light like her dad, we can not
control genetics.
I try to tell ppl that you do not have to be brown or be able to speak spanish in
order to be mexican but they just ignore my comments.
It just gets irritating and annoying for both of us, guess that
people think if your not brown or speak spanish then you are not mexican.
Oh well, guess we well just have to get use to it.
