Yeah because tanned white people isn't a thing? How many pale cowboys are there in New Mexico? Having visited the place I'd say relatively few. By all means have your head canon if it makes you happy, but don't accuse people who don't share it of "racism".
boi!! mccree is heavily mexican coded!! not just his skin color, but his fashion (the serape?? mexican) and his entire theme of being a cowboy (most real cowboys were mexican, native american, and/or black!). like, the whole cowboy thing was started by mexicans–we get the word “buckaroo” from vaquero because white americans couldnt (wouldnt?) pronounce spanish properly. he’s also FROM new mexico, which, guess what, once was actually mexico! america took the territory from mexico during the mexican american war. today nm has the highest percentage population of hispanic people out of all the other states. “ The U.S. Census Bureau estimated that 48% of the total 2015 population was Hispanic or Latino of any race, the highest of any state.” literally quoted there, for you.
i could just as easily for navajo mccree, or mixed mccree! new mexico has the highest population of native americans in the continental US at just under 10%, and 4% of the population of nm speaks navajo. mccree has more hispanic coding than navajo, but why couldn’t he be mixed? it’s the fuckin’ future. he could be navajo and mexican.
i called that person racist for saying /mccree is white/ when he is HEAVILY coded to be NOT WHITE and doesnt even LOOK like a white guy outside of his legendary skins (but we all know how blizzard is with the whitewashing so)
sure, tanned white people exist. mccree’s not one of ‘em, though. at the VERY LEAST, he’s coded to be hispanic. and why would it be a big deal if he IS not white? if he is mexican or navajo or both? that’s more representation! why would that be bad, ever????
