But the biggest discrimination I have seen so far has been in the south and is not against Latinos, actually here the discrimination is against
whites, does that sound weird? well is not in my neck of the woods.
But then again I am a very strong minded person that always make my presence be felt everywhere I go.
So no I can not say I have been personally discriminated at.
But that doesn't mean that others has not, just that I would never allow it on myself.
I have lived in this country a long time as well, and I have watched the discrimination shift from African-americans, to women, to asians, to
middle-easterners, to latinos.
It's the same tactic in all of them. Find a way to villify. Call any organization of those groups a radical group, or a terrorist organization.
In short, it's another perfect example of setting neighbor against neighbor, perpetuating fear of others, and keeping the everyday civilian's
attention on fearing others, as opposed to being empowered.
I agree, whites are VERY discriminated against at this point. I wonder, though, if we organized a group to empower white people, with civic duty and
charity work(not saying that La Raza doesnt do some outrageous things, but ALL groups do), would you classify it as a KKK-like group?
