New Racism!!! At least to me.....

First off I teach at school with a large Hispanic population. For the last 18 years it has been mainly from Mexico. This year we had an huge increase from Guatemala. This has created a new dynamic and since I am the only regular teacher that speaks some Spanish, I have all in one class.

Yesterday, I was in line at the post office behind a couple from Guatemala that didn't speak English. The clerk was having major communication problems, so after a minute of struggles I jumped in to help. After the issue was corrected, I turned to notice 2 or 3 other Hispanics that weren't offering assistance with this couple. Later I understand that it was a Mexican/Guatemalan problem. The Mexican population that is here is not happy about the rise in other Hispanic populations moving in and most aren't willing to help.

I still find this strange. I get not liking a person, but an entire race is inconceivable.

Awww heck, I know that Isaac. I also know it will never change completely. I guess it just surprises me this day and time.

On this I guess it doesn't ease my mind to know that in times like these there have always been times like these.

whoopy G. told Rosey O. on the "view" that she couldnt understand Prejudice or racism because she wasn't black. that is why those two can't get along an the show is being taking off the air. I dont know what is wrong with the people of today? someone robs a store, assaults a police officer, grabs his gun and gets shot and people loot and burn down a city because he was a white police officer. really? just my two cents worth.

Racism knows no bounds and defies convention. None of us are without some glimmer of biggotry. Sad really.

Overall, I think the people of today are much better. However, I am baffled when people steal from their neighbors to show their anger towards the local authorities. When I heard the verdict in the Ferguson case, I didn't run down to my neighbors and steal his lawnmower.

Phil not trying to judge your thought process but here's an Ole Fossil's take on these type of things.


Make no mistake that people who act out in such manners (ie theft, vandalism, rioting, etc. etc. etc.) are not doing so to really try to change the situation. They are doing so to take advantage of the situation.

That seems more like bias against a country. Also they may be worried about loosing jobs to new illegals......

Either way it's a shame. I know in my case I'm too busy taking care of my family to discriminate against anyone else. As I think it is in most people, unfortunately not all.

A lot of todays problems could be avoided if
They didn't rob the local 7-11
or stop committing crimes altogether
They did sell drugs
They did throw rocks at passing cars then the cops
They did resist arrest
They did try to take the officer's gun.

I'm 73 years old and never been in cuffs, never been arrested, never felt I had to run from the cops.
Guess my problem is I haven't done any of the crap I've listed above. Pretty much try to do right by my fellow man and dam sure don't steal their stuff.
Sorry for the rant.
