HATE: When One Latino Commits a Crime

shameWhen a Latino commits a crime and it gets plastered everywhere in the media, the generalizations start pouring in. The trolls get fed and all you hear or read are racist comments. Even some Latinos would start saying how ashamed they are of being Latino as if the bigots would tell them, “You hate your kind? Awesome, come join us!” It doesn’t work that way, they hate you too. One Latino’s actions is not a reflection of all. Just the same way when a woman breaks the law I don’t go around saying I hate being a woman, I won’t disown my people or myself just because someone of my group did something wrong. Actions are individualistic and we shouldn’t hold others responsible for one person’s bad behavior.
