Re: People of Color' are All One? Latino Inmates in L.A. Don't Think So

I was born and raised in South Central Los Angeles, in the town of Watts. In regards to the Black/Mestizo situation, I've noticed a few things: When Mestizos are a very small minority in a predominantly Black area, no one pays them any mind. In fact, many of the middle aged and older Black women will often be very friendly, and be a little sympathetic b/c the Mestizos (in this phase) are usually very poor, have many children, and don't speak English. This is my experience, so I don't want to...

We make a concession every time we leave a neighborhood that is quickly deteriorating in cleanliness, value, and safety instead of calling the proper...

Perhaps a parallel, an historical analogy may do something to soften your heart, and provide insight. I have my doubts. You are not about truth; you are about having the final word. It is estimated that between the years 1810 – 1850 over 100,000 African American slaves crossed the Mason-Dixon line into the North to escape the despair and heartbreak of slavery. That was in just forty years. The true figure of the number of slaves who escaped to the North in 400 years of bondage is unknown.
