Well, I think there has to be something in between, if only because genuinely changing cultures isn't something that's going to happen instantly.

And some people are going to stay in between indefinitely, whether by choice or by inability to learn the new culture well enough; as well as perhaps in some cultures which have a very homogeneous physical appearance and place a high importance on it.

But I was responding to what looked to me like the theory that nobody can ever assimilate into another culture, and that it's always wrong to try to do so.

ETA: and people of Mexican heritage come in all sorts of colors.
