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.
