I wouldn't presume to speak for Ellestar, but I think the point she was making was that no matter how immersed in Mexican culture she could be, from a race/ethnicity standpoint, she could never claim to be Latina and would always experience the culture as a white, non-Latina, person immersed in Mexican culture, not as a Mexican-American.
