As a fellow Latin American I agree with everything you've said. The difference is that the Spaniards and Portuguese that colonized Latin America were open to interracial marriage (No, it was not always rape) since most of them had Arab and Jewish roots while in the US this was shamed upon. While Latin America has lots of social problems including colorism, nationalism, superiorty complex. Racism is not one of them... Except maybe Argentina.
Being from Chile, I tell you we have that problem too. Having amerindian traits would put you under white people in the scale of social valoration, even if it's implicit and no one goes around beating people because of it.
