Odds are he's not Mexican, The Latinx community is far more diverse than the media gives it credit for. Only 20% of people with the last name Castro can trace their family back to what we call Mexico today. Other countries with a large number of Castros include Colombia, Brazil, Spain, Philippines, Argentina, Peru, and Venezuela.
