AnswerThere were the Zoot Suit riots in California, however they were an abberation. In the military they were generally accepted. The US Navy was slow and reluctant to fully integrate. No group had it as bad as US blacks.

An elderly Mexican-American, father of a friend of mine, told me the Army seemed a bit confused , and assigned the lighter skinned Mexican-Americans with the white troops, and the dark-skinned ones to Black units.
