I have not really known hispanics of Mexican descent, only Latinos from Puerto Rico. Me and my siblings had the misfortune of growing up in the slums
and we were terrorized I mean with physical violence, my little siblings ganged up on dragged on the ground, punched kicked rocks thrown at our
windows and obscenities scratched into my mothers car. Because white people, dont usually live in that area, in fact we were the only ones in that
whole apt. Some nice Latinos, ones that were civilized moved out and all we had left were people who got govt checks they stood in the hall, waiting
for their checks at like the 1st of the month because everybody would steal eachother's mail and that was check day. If a kid was rummaging through
someones mail, the mother wouldnt say stop that, shed ask what they have for mail in there.
I don't want to generalize but I had such a bad experience, however, when we moved into an apt in the slum where there were other whites, the
situation was hardly different, people from bad situations and environments tend to act like that. The ones that do work, get all the good, away from
people jobs while us who can speak English have to deal with high stress customer service. When I worked at Dunkin Donuts I got yelled at for making a
sandwich, like I usually did for break. But earlier a Hispanic worker, not only got a free sandwich but it was made for her by us, another coworker,
but we didnt have that privileged. Why were the rules different for her? Because we couldnt explain it to her?
So she gets food we arent allowed to have. I dont know. I want to be kind and I try to have peace with the situation, but I can understand how a
person, learns to be racist through the experience they have. Us citizens cant go live in another country without I mean alot of things being in
place , alot of paperwork, you really have to know someone or get married. And it is common for people without a legal right to be somewhere to get
deported back. But the American citizens are supposed to have wide open borders, till we cant sustain our own people, esp since most jobs have been
outscourced to third world countries. Where are the principles our Nation was founded on? Why must American children go hungry and starve?
